Publisher's Summary

Daisy Dunlop thinks "heir hunting" is a perfect career. Too bad she has to work with her husband's best mate, Irish PI Solomon Liffey. They've barely spoken since he took her husband Paul's request to keep her safe far too literally and handcuffed her to the kitchen sink.

Solomon has no interest in babysitting a new partner, especially this one. The woman's a bleedin' liability. She has no concept of danger and could flirt for England at the next Olympics. As if that isn't bad enough, she has a habit of sticking her nose where it's not wanted, including into Solomon's very private life.

Determined to keep Daisy safely out of his way, Solomon sets her the task of finding a missing lord. Her investigations land her in the middle of his case. Bullets fly, bombs explode, and the body count rises. When Solomon goes missing, the tables are turned. Now it's his life that is in Daisy's hands, and she has two missing men to find before it's too late.

    Any additional comments?

    I received a free copy of this audiobook on Audible and really enjoyed it. The story is a good mystery while still providing a good character development for the main characters and their surrounding group. Daisy is a bit of a klutz trying to find a career that she enjoys and that provides her with some challenge. She leaves her office job and decides to work as an 'heir hunter' with her husband's friend Solomon. The snarky relationship between Daisy and Solomon is entertaining, though at times it seems a little too close for comfort for a married woman and her husband's 'best mate'. There are some secrets that come out during the course of the story that explains some of that closeness, but I think that there is more to it that will likely be explored in other books in the series. Unlike a lot of mysteries that I have read, there aren't a lot of red herrings just to drag out the story. By the end of the book, the threads have been pretty neatly braided together. I really enjoyed the humor used throughout the book and found myself giggling several times. The narrator's accent is heavily English which I actually find very pleasant to listen to, but I know some people who might find it difficult to keep up. She does a great job of pulling in the listener, especially during intense or suspenseful scenes. She changes the tempo and inflection to communicate the stress of the situation. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book.

    "Great Series Starter"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes


    What other book might you compare Lost Cause to and why?

    Maybe the Stephanie Plum series..It is a fun read with wonderful cast of characters and Daisy does not like to do what she is told gets her into some trouble spots


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were so many but what made me laugh out loud the most was toward the end when daisy was trying to save the day - it was dark - and shots fired and things ..thown


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Finding out the connection between the two best mates


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book and I look forward to the next in the series! I liked the narrator for this as well although I did not particularly like the voice she did for PHAT Kitty. I did buy the next in the series only I may not have time to read it. I am hoping the audio version comes out very soon. I am hooked to this new series. I was not sure I was going to like it at first but it pulled me in quick and I finished it within two days - if life hadn't gotten in the way I would have finished sooner :). Please keep this series going I am looking forward to Daisy and her world and what trouble she finds herself in.
