About the Book:

Hollywood sweetheart Joey Darling's adventures and mishaps continue in the third book of the charming mystery series set in the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

My name is Joey Darling, and I’m a disgrace to imaginary detectives everywhere.

When actress Joey Darling discovers a mermaid tail with drops of fresh blood on it while hiking in a remote nature preserve, she knows something suspicious is going on.

As details surface, Joey realizes she’s dealing with a problem she has encountered one too many times: someone desperate for fame who falls victim to a predator. With the help of her neighbor Zane Oakley and the opposition of local detective Jackson Sullivan, Joey hunts for answers, unaware of the deadly net in which she’s about to entangle herself.

Joey knows she’s a fish out of water when it comes to cracking cases, but can she use her talent—acting—to help find the missing woman? Or will Joey end up swimming with sharks?

My Rating & Thoughts:   🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 (4 stars)

Story is filled with laugh-out-loud moments along with some nail-biting moments. Joey and Zane stumble across evidence that begins a search for a missing girl. Just when Joey is ready to leave the search to the police, she is contacted by the girl’s boyfriend asking her to find some answers. Her curiosity takes over and she begins a search that puts her in precarious positions at times; however she is beginning to learn that she needs to turn things over to the police force or at least have someone with her. This is a slow process though; she still takes risks on trying to do things on her own but thankfully she does not seriously get hurt. Can Joey and Jackson figure out what happened to the girl? Who is behind her disappearance?

I enjoyed this story. It kept my interest the whole way through, and I wasn't able to solve the case before it was revealed. I really liked getting to know Joey and Jackson more and especially enjoyed their interactions with each other, I am holding out hope that a relationship between them is in store for the future.
(I received this book free from the Ms. Barritt; opinions expressed in this review are my honest opinion and completely my own.)
