Summary

Paralegal and former rodeo queen Emily only wants two little things. The first is to adopt Betsy - the girl who has stolen her heart but could be deported to Mexico at any time. The other is a second chance with her boss Jack, a smolderingly hot and mysterious criminal defense attorney in Amarillo who runs his family's horse ranch in New Mexico on the side.

But before Emily can dare to hope for either (or both), the obstacles between them and her mount: two runaway teenagers, an aging exotic dancer, and a dead trucker torpedo a dinner with Jack. She and Jack catch their client - who's charged with assaulting an officer - selling stolen goods. And to top it all off, Betsy's zealously religious and overly protective foster parents sic some questionable cops on Emily to destroy her reputation.

Emily just wants to silence all the noise and focus on her priorities: Betsy and Jack. But then the phone rings. It's the two runaways, with an enormous secret and a desperate plea for help. They convince Emily that she's the only one they can trust, forcing her into a horrible choice: risking the lives of these two teens, or jeopardizing her own chance at a life with the two people she cares about most.

Another go get them book

I really enjoyed this book and think they just better and better. I enjoyed the Katie series but think the Emily books have just stepped it up another level. I love the familial characters putting in a appearance. Even though I had worked out the mystery it was fun getting there with Emily and the gang.
In this book Emily a paralegal is once again playing detective when two run away children ask her help after witnessing a murder, but not the help she should be providing like taking them to the police. No they want help running away,as far as she can take them so they don't become the killers next victim. Emily is torn because the teenagers need her help but so does Betsy the little girl she is trying to adopt and she doesn't want to jeopardize that. Especially as Betsy foster mum has all ready could the police on her about stalking the little girl. Jack has his own trouble trying to keep his clients out of jail and track down a thief that is stealing from home.When Emily stumbles on another body they realise that the killer is playing for keeps and it might not just be the children that are in real trouble.
I liked the narrator but I started with the Katie books so I am use to her voice for the character of Ava and even thoughTracy was good with everyone else, she didn't quite have the same island accent I have got use to.

Great Mystery

I really enjoyed this mystery! It was straight forward and easy to listen to. I love how foster care and adoption are apart of this story. I think Emily is a little morally gray, which makes for a fun listen (trespassing, tampering with evidence, etc.) She is also a tough cookie, which I admire. I love the various cast of characters. They are all so unique. I loved the setting as well. It feels like the story could be concluded, but you get an extra little adventure at the end.

Tracy Hundley does a great job with distinct voices.

Another great emily mystery and adventure

Another great Emily mystery. I love Emily so much. She cracks me up and also frustrates me at the same time. We start this book with her trying to adopt Betsy, who she saved in the last book, and also crushing on her boss Jack. I want her happiness. I want everything to work for her. But I can't help feel frustrated at her choices. She gets herself in another murder mystery and I really didn't know if she would make it out alive. I love Emily because she is a hero that I can relate to. She doesn't say the right thing. She doesn't make the right choices. But her heart is pure. She wants to help others and sometimes she breaks the rules for the right reasons. Join Emily on another mystery. Get ready to be surprised. This story has many twists. I couldn't stop listening. This narrator brings Emily to life again. And trust me you'll want to listen/read until the last line. I can't wait for more Emily!

Earth to Emily

Off to a slow start, but things quickly picked up. There’s suspense and action as Emily keeps moving forward in her quest to adopt Betsy.

Pamela Fagan Hutchins does a fantastic job with moving the overarching storyline along while giving us interesting and action packed situations. I’m definitely invested and need to find out how things conclude.

Emily is well on her way to adopt Betsy and... Bam! Life happens. This book is as fast paced as the others and an wonderfull read and the story is intriguing but i still have my issues with Jack. He's had a rough life but would it kill him to talk? I feel i know Wallace better than i know Jack. But all in all i still love this series.

Suspense, humor and a little romance

This was another great Emily series book! Kept you on the edge of your seat the entire time. If you haven’t read the first one you need to do so, but the author does a good job catching you up just in case. Loved seeing besty back in the story. I really like Emily and jack together and can’t wait to see what happens next!

Quirky,fun,mysterious & packed full of everything!

Emily has gone through so much and now all she wants is to adopt Betsy, see the kids Greg & Farrah safe and discover how Jack really feels about her. Is that too much to ask? In anyone else’s world, no but this is Emily so nothing is ever that easy. Let the adventure begin, murders ensue and let’s not forget about all the mayhem!

Pamela Fagan Hutchins stories always have a bit of everything for everyone. She creates such great characters, makes you laugh, keeps you on the edge of your seat, keeps you guessing, throws in some romance and tops it all off with a bit of spirituality! She sucks you in and you never want the story to end! Bring on the next installation!

A Fun Romance

This is a lovely, intriguing, suspenseful and fun romance story. The characters are lovable and well written. You'll laugh, cringe, hold your breath and love all that happens in this book. I enjoyed following Emily and Jack on their way to their HEA. I didn't always care for Emily but she does manage to win me over by the end. The narration was okay. Tracy Hundley needs to work more on varying her voice between characters but she did do well with the emotions. Her narration didn't hurt the story but didn't exactly bring the story to life for me. I'd be willing to give her another chance though. Overall, a fun way to pass some time.

Great series

I enjoy series books and this series is fun, entertaining yet descriptive about the area in which the story takes place. I appreciation the positive light the author shed on the CPS worker and the work done with children. I highly recommend the book.
