Brew or Die: A Java Jive Mystery by Caroline Fardig

Juliet now has her private eye badge.  She's official and can't wait to get her first case.  Her partner sends her out to get pictures of a husband and his young girlfriend.  What she ends up taping is an encounter between the two lovers where the husband gets stabbed.  When the cops show up, he says she stabbed him!

Alibi and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published April 25th.

Luckily she has the video she taped so she can prove she was not involved except in trying to save the man's life.

If Juliet doesn't have enough problems with her job, Pete, and her employees, her lost love shows up.  She refuses to even talk to him.  After all, she's dating a tame cop, she doesn't need him in her life.  He broke her heart.

Then one of her employee's fiance dies.  They say it was an overdose.  He says she's clean.  Pete and Juliet decide to go undercover to find out more.  Not only that, the tame case she was working on turns deadly and she hears her cop she dates being part of an illegal activity.

The mysteries are good, it's exciting and busy, and Juliet comes out OK despite herself.  Now if she could just settle her love life.  She broke up with the straight cop, decided she did love the one that has returned and now he's dating someone else.  I just want to shake her.  She's got life down but she doesn't have romance down.  The good news is that she's singing again.
