For the Love of Katie (The Katie Chronicles #2) by Erica Lucke Dean

Paperback, 296 pages
Expected publication: August 2017 by Red Adept Publishing, LLC
Newlywed Katie Maxwell is ready to settle down and leave her amateur detective days behind. But when the veil of secrecy surrounding her husband’s latest project takes them to Europe, her penchant for sleuthing lands her in some serious hot foreign water.

Katie will need to think quickly to talk her way out of handcuffs and a Parisian jail cell. Too bad she doesn't speak French.

For the Love of Katie is the second madcap adventure in The Katie Chronicles. This book can be read as a standalone, but why would you want to skip the first?

My Thoughts…

Oh, Katie…  With every step you take I am scared for your life.     Katie is a character that seems to always be falling, tripping, or just stumbling through her life.    She has good intentions in all she does but things don’t ever seems to go her way.     Yet, life is good for Katie.   She has a job at the bank with people who she is friends with, has an amazing boyfriends, and is living life large.      There were many many times I laughed out loud.

The schemes, which her friends fed into, were so outrageous, so crazy, and so much fun that I couldn’t believe them sometimes.      Yet, Erica Lucke Dean did a wonderful job of making them crazy enough to be fun but real enough to be believable.    

I cannot wait for more of Katie and Cooper’s story.   There is no doubt that there is more to come in their life.   

Thank you Red Adept Publishing for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

After walking away from her career as a business banker to pursue writing full-time, Erica Lucke Dean moved from the hustle and bustle of the big city to a small tourist town in the North Georgia Mountains, where she lives in a 90-year-old haunted farmhouse with her workaholic husband, her 180 lb lap dog, and at least one ghost.
When she’s not writing or tending to her collection of crazy chickens and diabolical ducks, she’s either reading bad fan fiction or singing karaoke in the local pub. Much like the main character in her first book, To Katie With Love, Erica is a magnet for disaster and has been known to trip on air while walking across flat surfaces.
How she’s managed to survive this long is one of life’s great mysteries.
