Jack of Hearts is part of the Detective Jack Stratton Mystery-Thriller Series, authored by Wall Street Journal bestselling author Christopher Greyson, which has more than 5,000 five-star reviews and over a million readers and counting.

Synopsis:

Jack Stratton is heading south for some fun in the sun. Already nervous about introducing his girlfriend, Alice, to his parents, the last thing Jack needed was for the dog-sitter to cancel, forcing him to bring Lady, their 120-pound King Shepherd, on the plane with them. The dog holds Jack responsible and wants payback. On top of everything, Jack is still waiting for Alice’s answer to his marriage proposal.

When his mother and the members of her neighborhood book club ask him to catch the “Orange Blossom Cove Bandit,” a small-time thief who’s stealing garden gnomes and peace of mind from their quiet retirement community, how can Jack refuse?

The peculiar mystery proves to be more than it appears, and things take a deadly turn. Now, Jack finds it's up to him to stop a crazed killer, save his parents, and win the hand of the girl he loves—but if he survives, will it be Jack who ends up with a broken heart?


Review:

This is the 2nd book of the series I have read (after And Then She was Gone), and I have to admit I pretty much laughed my way through this one! Between Lady (the dog), Jack's mother and the Book Club crew, the laughter kept coming. Living in the South, comments about the heat, mosquitoes and alligators were quite funny as they were so alien to Jack. But putting all that aside, you know who the suspect is from the beginning of the book, but you don't know the WHY, and that is the part that keeps you reading the book, until the spectacular ending. To be this book was different than the previous one, and I could really see this as TV series. I'd love for Jack's parents and their neighbors to come back into play into a future book, as I think Florida was a great setting! 

So while this book doesn't come out for a couple of weeks, grab some of the earlier books in the series now, and set this one on the MUST read list!
