Review - Hit The Road, Jake! by Cricket Rohman

Hit The Road, Jake! 


Goodreads Blurb:


Thrilling, romantic, and sprinkled with humor, HIT THE ROAD, JAKE! reinvents the ‘buddy movie’ concept with the written word … and a pretty woman. Jake and Lindsey are good at tracking down offenders responsible for petty theft and blackmail, but when new mysteries become personal—slashed tires, spattered blood, steamy love letters, a stolen pet—everything changes. 

Who is this enemy that secretly harasses them from town to town? Jake calls in some favors and manages to finagle the DNA testing of several blood samples. The results are shocking, and the dangers they face become deadly. 

Practically newlyweds, the couple thought they’d created the perfect win-win plan. While traveling between Tucson and Estes Park in their RV, Jake would solve embarrassing mysteries that schools wished to keep under wraps, and Lindsey, being the ‘cover’ for their presence, would conduct workshops for teachers. Then all hell broke loose. 

“Cricket Rohman really nails it! She gives her readers a ton of depth in both the story line and character development. A great, fun read!” 
---Lala Corriere, author of Bye Bye Bones: A Cassidy Clark Novel 


My Review:


This was not the first book in the series of Jake and Lindsay's adventures!
But, I sure got along for the ride quite quickly!

And, boy, how many adventures have these lovebirds lived through?

Jake and Lindsay are married for 18 months and still deeply in love.
Not wanting to be tied down to any regular work that would keep them at one place, they travel through the States in their RV, along with their dog and bird.
Their little family is just so adorable, and the love between them so palpable!

As for the mysteries?
They jump from one assignment to the other "doing their Sherlocking stuff" and solving the mysteries they are called to face, in clever ways!

I liked the fact that there were a few things that I hadn't expected when I first picked up this ARC.
I would certainly love to pick up the first two books in this series, to get to know more about the heroes, and how their love came to be, and became so strong!


All in all, 4 stars for a read I really enjoyed and 
some mysteries I liked trying to solve along with the heroes!
