This is a wonderful fast paced, jaunty read.  The dialogue was witty and sassy.  I enjoyed Mia Ferrari’s independent, determined, take no crap from anyone, attitude.  She has an inquisitive mind and is a passionate amateur sleuth.  She is relentless in her quest for the truth; a thorn in the side of the police who are trying to solve the case.

The mystery is well played out.  This story line had many twists and turns along the way to the surprise ending.  Just when you thought you knew what was happening, you were thrown off balance by another side step.

Mia Ferrari may be in her late forties, but she is still has what it takes.  Romance simmered in the background of the story but she is too smart to jump quickly into an uncertain romantic arena.  She is recovering from the marriage that was her own personal train wreck.  The ex gets verbally trounced, along with the bimbo who took up with him while he was still married to Mia.

Mia  overcomes and triumphs; she wins on every count!

I loved “Playing With the Bad Boys” because it was a fun read.  I even read during the day, which is something I never do, but I was caught up in the story and wanted to see how it ended.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read investigative, murder/mysteries with a fun, well developed heroine who is a wise ass, smart talking, never back down character. You’ll probably chuckle a few times, find your heart in your throat at others and more than once think “I didn’t see that coming.”
