Summary

When Homicide Inspector Rebecca Mayfield's would-be boyfriend, Richie Amalfi, is named as one of San Francisco's "most enticing bachelors", she's not amused, but she never expected it would lead to his life being threatened. As a restaurant owner, men's upscale clothing store owner, hotelier, and more - handsome bachelors all - are attacked, Rebecca realizes the danger is very real. 

Who's killing the city's "enticing bachelors" and why? Rebecca must answer those questions as she grapples with her own questions and feelings about Richie. Rebecca soon discovers that where there's smoke, there's fire. As she gets closer to the bachelors to learn why they're in danger, she finds their happy surface images hide troubling conflagrations below. When she's forced to dive below the steamy surfaces to learn what's really going on, only Richie has the insider knowledge she needs to do it. And while she might sizzle over Richie, the more she learns about both him and the case, the more she realizes that she may have just moved from the frying pan into the fire - with equally deadly results.

Entertaining mystery

A this is an entertaining mystery. I like stories with strong female characters and their slightly dodgy romantic interests and this is a good one. The story is quite standard but is excellent, the characters and we'll described and interesting and their are some very good touches. Joanne Pence is new time andi will be listening to more of these. Julia Garlotte does a fine job bringing
the story off the page. I received a complimentary copy and am leaving a honest voluntary review

Sizzling mystery

I loved this story. A by the book cop falling for a bad boy is always a fascinating story and this book doesn't fail to entertain. The way they have to over come not just there own feeling for each other but also everybody else's expectations. Two wonderful characters that are just meant for each other. The inclusion of Ritchie's name to an eligible bad boy bachelor list offered not just the start of a good mystery but also some chuckles as it complicated both the main characters lives.However this book is so much more than a romance. The mystery was cleverly crafted as there was multiple parts to story, with a fire, murder drug dealing, money laundering and gangs. It could so easily have become complicated but that wasn't the case, other than two names sounding very similar. Can't wait to start the next book.
Rebecca never expected to walk in to work and discover her boyfriends face staring back at her from a magazine with the by line top six most enticing bachelors. The article then goes on to question all six men's reputations and sometimes shady business practices. It couldn't come at a worse time as Rebecca is investigating a fire that caused a death at one of the men's mentioned and the beheading of another. Are all six men targets? And if so why? What do they have in common? Other than the reporter who wrote the article? Things heat up as another fire is set and another body is found. Rebecca and Ritchie will have put aside there hurt fee!Inge caused by the article if they want to catch who is behind the fires.and deaths.
I liked the narrator. She did some good voices for both the make and female characters and was pleasant to listen to.

Romance, Mystery, and Action!

This was my first Joanne Pence's book. This is the fourth book in The Rebecca Mayfield Mysteries series. Rebecca and Ritchie's story is entertaining and fast-paced. Rebecca’s sister, Courtney, is a colorful character. The characters are well developed and interesting. I liked the romance, the mystery, the action, and the twists and turns. Julia Garlotte did a good job with the narration. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
