Florence Love became a Private Investigator for all the right reasons. She’s extraordinarily nosy, it sounds cool on paper and she needed to find her missing mum.
Now she knows Bambi Love is hiding out in Italy – in a cloud of secrets and Chanel No. 5.
Every family has its skeletons, but Flo’s lot are a particularly special case. And how is she supposed to get over her heart-stealing ex, who holds all the answers but refuses point-blank to ever see her again?
It’s going to take a whole lot of love, sweat and tears to uncover the astonishing truth.
I would just like to thank Jenni Leech for asking me to take part in this blog tour.
So I have to start off by saying that I did not realise that this was book 3 in a series and of course I had not read the other two books, however I did not let this impact my review.
This novel has two parts to it which are easy to keep track of, part number one involves a teenager called James who is trying to find out whether his Grandmothers new boyfriend is trying to steal antiques belonging to his Grandmother, this leads Florence working a case with Micheal her friend and sidekick. Part two focuses on Florence looking for her mother Bambi who she has now found out lives in Italy and of course Florence makes her way to Italy in search of her mother and also the answers she has waited so long for.
I loved the case involving the Grandmother as it showed a really soft side and thought it was nice how the Grandson was portrayed in such a caring manner.
I enjoyed seeing Florence on the search of her mother and the issues that stand in her way as sometimes the answers to your questions are not always the ones you want. It was written well and had likable Characters even some of Florence’s weird family members who you can’t help but love.
I have to be honest, I do feel that due to me not reading the first two novels in the series this did leave me going in blind a little as I had missed the previous parts relating to Florence on the search for her mother, so although I was still able to read this book and was able to follow it without being confused I would recommend you starting at the beginning and reading them in order – as I know I prefer to read books in order in case I miss something.
However in saying all of that, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and is defiantly a must have for a summer read (even if it’s all three books in the series). I will defiantly be looking to get the first two to find where the story began on Florence’s search for her mother.
