An all-new, spicy murder mystery from Tessa Bailey, New York Times bestselling author of It Happened One Summer…

It was supposed to be a relaxing vacation in sweet, sunny Cape Cod—just me and my beloved brother—but discovering a corpse in our rental house really throws a wrench into our tanning schedule. Now a rude, crude bounty hunter has arrived on the back of his motorcycle to catch the killer and refuses to believe I can be helpful, despite countless hours of true crime podcast listening. Not to mention a fulfilling teaching career of wrangling second graders.

A brash bounty hunter and an energetic elementary schoolteacher: the murder-solving team no one asked for, but thanks to these pesky attempts on my life, we’re stuck together, come hell or high tide.

I’m just here to do a job, not babysit an amateur sleuth. Although…it is becoming less and less of a hardship to have her around. Sure, she’s stubborn, distracting and can’t stay out of harm’s way. She’s also brave and beautiful and reminds me of the home I left behind three years ago. In other words, the painful hunger and protectiveness she is waking up in me is a threat to my peace of mind. Before I sink any deeper into this dangerous attraction, I need to solve this murder and get back on the road. But will fate take her from me before I realize the road has been leading to her all along?
MY feelings
I can always count on Tessa Bailey for a great romance! My Killer Vacation had me smiling and also fanning myself at the same time. I enjoyed our main characters and the journey of them catching a killer and falling in love.

Taylor and Myles are two opposites who shouldn’t fit together but they do. Taylor is a teacher who’s scared that by never doing anything out of her ordinary that her life would never change. Myles is a tough AF bounty hunter with some issues. They were really good together and good for each other. It was fun to read them bicker and also see them bring out a different side to each other.
 

“Go to your meeting, I’ll meet you afterward.” She grins at me. “We can get ice cream.”
I snort. “Do I look like the kind of guy who goes on ice cream dates, half pint?”
“No,” she sighs. “I guess you don’t.”
We walk in silence for a few seconds.
“What flavor are you getting?” Her fingers squeeze mine. I’m fucked.

 
As you can expect from Tessa Bailey, the spicy scenes were hot! There was so much sexual tension brewing between our two main characters that I had to keep reading to see when they would finally give in.

All in all, this was a treat to read and definitely pick it up when it releases.

  1. I saw the cover on Book Depository but thought it was a old book of hers, since the cover didn’t match her recent releases. I love murder mysteries, so I’ll definitely add this to my to-buy-list 🙂
