On Borrowed Crime


I received this title as a free ebook from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review.

This is the first in a new series, A Jane Doe Book Club Mystery.  In this we have the protagonist, Lyla Moody, who is an aspiring PI.  She currently works for her Uncle’s PI agency as a receptionist, much to the dismay of her very proper mother.  In her free time, she belongs to a true crime and mystery book club that calls itself, the Jane Doe Book Club.  Now one of the Jane Doe’s has turned up dead and  Lyla finds herself embroiled in a true crime and sets out to investigate.

I really enjoyed reading this first in this new series.  Lyla is a great character and there are hints that her life has not been smooth sailing but she has shown grit and determination.  The story was well plotted and the cold case connection gives the book a very up to date vibe.  I would definitely read another in this series.
