Getting off on Frank Sinatra by Megan Edwards 

Overview 

A scorching Las Vegas summer is about to get even hotter. Aspiring journalist Copper Black has just found out that her boyfriend is responsible for his not-quite-ex-wife’s pregnancy. An unexpected house-sitting job at a notorious Las Vegas “party house” should provide not only a private swimming pool but also much-needed distraction.
While researching a story about an exclusive private school, Copper accidentally discovers the dead body of the school’s beloved founder. Now involved in a high-profile murder investigation, Copper turns to her brother, a civic-minded pastor who is overseeing the construction of a center for the homeless. A Paiute medicine man claims the site is a sacred burial ground, attracting hordes of protesters.
As she tries to solve the murder, help her brother, advance her career, and sort out her love life, Copper stirs up a world of trouble. Her escapades as she evades a sociopath, a disturbed cowgirl, and a suspicious homicide detective make Megan Edwards’ rousing debut Getting Off on Frank Sinatra a nonstop roller coaster of a read.

Review

Copper is a journalist in Vegas (what better place!!) While researching a story about a private school….enter a DEAD BODY! 

Copper is an adorable character.  Something is always happening to her, through no fault of her own…. Well, maybe a little fault. She almost gets blown up, beat up and arrested, just to name a few!   I enjoyed her many escapades and her floundering to get out of a mess!

I also enjoyed the history splattered within this book. I love Vegas!! The author did a fabulous job weaving old mobsters and their tales throughout this story. Not sure if the tales are real or imagined, but really adds to the setting and the plot itself. I loved the mobster house and all it’s history and quirks! 

This is a really good long car 🚗 ride book. I could have finished it in one sitting if my crazy life allowed. I actually lost time while reading one day and was almost late for work. I got caught up in a blown up house and a lost tortoise name Oscar. Completely entertaining and  sometimes that is exactly what you need!
