especially Jack But upon arrival a gruesome murder makes it impossible for her to keep her distance And when a second one occurs, she and Jack will have to work together again to stop another murder from happeningI must say it was strange seeing Jaye so broken, so fearful, especially since she wasn t that way before For the first half I really missed her dry wit, her sarcasm and toughness But luckily by the end of the book she seems to have regain her sense of self, letting go of her fears with the help of Jack.I ve waited a long time for you And I m tired of being patient It s my turn to get what I want for onceI loved Jack in this book, how patient he was with Jaye, knowing she was afraid and overwhelmed But he also wasn t hiding his feelings from her any and I loved how persistent he was with her, how he wouldn t allow her to ignore what s always been there between them, what took her so long to finally see It s just happened really fast I m still getting used to it It s happened over a lifetime, and it won t be as big of a deal as you think it will We ve loved each other forever, whether you re ready to say it or notI absolutely adored the romance in this best friends to lovers book Jaye definitely tried to push Jack away, not knowing how to handle the sudden new feelings she had for him, but luckily Jack knows her so well, and he knew exactly how to handle her skittish behaviour That love belongs to me, Jaye It always has And you ve always had mineHe s been waiting years for her to see the spark between them and now that she has he refuses to allow her to ignore it, to ignore them and what they had I loved their romance and how beautiful it was when they finally gave into their feelingsThe suspenseful plot was terrific and so damn gripping trying to figure out who the killer s were and once again I was surprised to find out who it was And the secrets that Jaye uncovered about her parents just addedintrigue and I can t wait to find outabout thatShe gave us both a shrewd look Looks like you ve been assisting him in unofficial capacities as well I miss sex, she said with a sigh It s one of the many things that sucks about getting oldI really love this town that is definitely starting to live up to its scary name, Bloody Mary, and although some of the towns people with their small mindedness made me want to shake some sense into them, there were also those I loved Like Miss Pilcher, who is as old as dirt but so freaking funny She likes watching porn and when that bores her she spies on her neighbors with her long range binoculars, lol I want to be her when I grow up D I am REALLY loving this excellent series The plot is full of intrigue, suspense and twists and the romance simply wonderful A must read for all RS

comment, because I don t want to spoil it for new readers J.J is literally driving back into town after months of isolated recovery at her parent s Poconos cabin, when she makes a horrific discovery And just like that she is back in her groove, running a funeral home, performing as the coroner, verbally sparring with Jack and avoiding his flirty innuendos and any other emotional contact as well, and pretending the harsh judgement of half the town does not bother her When the apparent hate crime has ties to one of their best friends, Jack and J.J are emotionally caught up in the investigation, even as their own emotions are now out in the open I really love their relationship Jack is supremely confident and insightful, and understands J.J better than anyone And she in turn trusts and loved him unconditionally as well She has just never in emotions and relationships before because of her family and family history Jack and J.J s teasing and flirting is witty, sexy and smart some of the best dialogue I have read in a very long time The sex scenes are hot, intense and hubba hubba worthy without being very graphic.The setting of this series is a small southern town with a lot of personality Bloody Mary is a small town, full of Victorian style houses that populate the brick lined streets, which are named for the dead wives of Henry VIII The population is a mixture of rich and poor, black and white, local and non local And much like the small town I grew up in, local means at least 2nd generation Living there for 25 years still makes you the new guy As interesting as the town is, the author doesn t indulge in too much quirkiness other than street names, and the interesting locals feel normally interesting and nuts, not quaint and colorful.If you like the TV show Bones you will love this series There are a lot of similarities the gritty, violent mystery, the smart verbal sparring of the two romantic leads, and the sexy personal relationship that spills over into their shared worklife A dirty shame was just as entertaining as the first instalment in the series, Dirty Little Secrets I m still surprised to be enjoying this series as I downloaded the first book as a freebie and wasn t really expecting to like it.The books are far from perfect but they are fun to read and I really like J.J s character She is stronger now that she was in the first instalment

to read and I really like J.J s character She is stronger now that she was in the first instalment and it s nice to see her character evolve After reading Dirty Little Secrets it was quite obvious that she and Jack would end up together but they make a great team together There is definitelyromance going on in this instalment but it s never cheesy and the constant banter fun dialogues between Jaye and Jack make it less overwhelming The romance also helps lighten up some of thegruesome aspects of the murder investigation.The mystery about J.J and her parents keep building up as corpses keep piling up in Bloody Mary The plot is well built and fast paced, with some very nice twists that never fail to take the reader by surprise.A very enjoyable, entertaining read Can t wait to read the next instalment A Dirty Shame J.J Graves Mystery 2 by Liliana Hart, was a bitsomber then the first book, but I was happy that the events in book one were not swept under the carpet, but were incorporated into this book in as part of the continuing plot.In book two we find JJ and Jack working on another series of murders that seem to be related to a hate crime Surrounding this main theme,

another series of murders that seem to be related to a hate crime Surrounding this main theme, we see JJ coming to teams with what happened to her in book 1, her path to healing is a rough one, and a bit quick especially if you don t take the 12 weeks she spent away from Bloody Mary into account Jack remains lovable supportive though her process, and by the end of the book he has declared his love to JJ ,furthering the romantic theme of the books The story is well written, and does have some humor, just not as much as the first book had Interlaced with the murder plot we getof JJ s back story, and glimpses into why Jack is the sheriff in Bloody Maryinfo on this appears in book three The author does a good job tying all the of the plots threads together, and ends the book with a big surprise It was this ending that drove me directly into book 3, as I really needed to know what was going to happen.For me this was a strong 4 star read, the themes and references in the book, being so real, they could be found in the pages of any American newspaper I loved the first book in the series Dirty Little Secrets , but the second book is even better. This is a must read book for everyone who loves murder mystery with a hint of romance This book had me gripped from the start and it didn t take me long to finish it as I couldn t put it down It left me on one beauty of a cliffhanger and I cannot wait for the 3rd book I swear, this series gets better and better J.J Graves is such a complex character, especially now The events of book 1 profoundly affected her, and J.J has returned to Bloody Mary after a four month sabbatical following her near murder She has barely crossed the town limits when she encounters a murder And, just like that, she s thrust right back into a role she s not sure she s ready for yet Jack is happy to see her and not willing to let anytime go by before he tells her how he r I swear, this series gets better and better J.J Graves is such a complex character, especially now The events of book 1 profoundly affected her, and J.J has returned to Bloody Mary after a four month sabbatical following her near murder She has barely crossed the town limits when she encounters a murder And, just like that, she s thrust right back into a role she s not sure she s ready for yet Jack is happy to see her and not willing to let anytime go by before he tells her how he really feels about her You know not to complicate things any further I love that Liliana Hart has made J.J so flawed She was nearly strangled to death in her own house That will absolutely mess with your head in life changing ways Her voice is permanently damaged She s jumpy and carries a gun everywhere now She doesn t like being touched, even by those she has known and loved her whole life She can t step foot in the house she grew up in She can t sleepthan an hour or so at a time J.J is forever changed and she doesn t know how to move forward The decision is taken out of her hands when she comes across an apparent hate crime on her way back into town She s the first person on the scene, and her old instincts kick in As in book 1, I really enjoyed the scenes where J.J gets to don her many caps In Bloody Mary, she s the medical examiner, the coroner and the mortician She s like the dead whisperer, and it appears that her new phobias haven t hindered her ability to do her job With each new dead body that shows up in this new case, J.J cuts each one open with ease to determine how, when at with what he or she was killed Jack, J.J s BFF since grade school, is very happy to see her back in town We got an inkling of Jack s true feelings for her at the end of book 1, and in A Dirty Rotten Shame, Jack lays it all out for her His way of dealing with J.J is uniquely perfect Jack knows she s been through a lot, and because of his time on both the SWAT team and the local police force, I think Jack has had some opportunity to deal with sensitive situations It s like he knew just what to do and say to J.J to make her comfortable at least around him Jack was infinitely patient and sweet And yet, he never coddled her He let her be afraid, but also let her know he was there for her and he was never leaving It was exactly what she needed The romance between Jack and J.J was perfectly paced Given J.J s new hang ups, it didn t happen too soon Jack definitely had to get her used to the idea that he s in love with her and has been for years How he did that was so completely and utterly perfect The other thing I loved about this book is, even after Jack declares his feelings, the snarky banter that is hallmark for these two doesn t stop Yes J.J has been through something awful and the nature of the crimes in this book is pretty heinous But, Liliana Hart writes in these perfect one line zingers, and creates these colorful side characters that bring much needed levity and hilarity to an otherwise dark and foreboding book Liliana Hart is a master at weaving a complex web Just when you think you know who did it, that person is ruled out There are twists and turns and moments that had me biting my nails It was awesome and exciting And the bomb that is dropped at the very end will leave you begging forright away Once again, I listened to the audio version of A Dirty Rotten Shame Laura Faye Smith narrates this series perfectly She really captures Jack and J.J exactly how I picture them If you love crime and mystery dramas with a hint of romance, this series is one you should definitely check out
