Executive Retention: A Sedona O’Hala Mystery #2 (Volume 2)
2nd in the Series
Bear Mountain Books
Sedona O’Hala returns along with those Huntington brothers that seem to always lead her into the line of fire. In this edition she is undercover at Acetel, an IT firm, who seems to have a problem somewhere because their numbers just aren’t adding up. Sedona needs to track down not only the who, but the what and why to solve this companies issues.
On the personal front, Sedona’s sister-in-law is hosting Thanksgiving and Sedona even brings a guest.
First let me say there are no recipes at the back of this cozy mystery and after you read about the family’s Thanksgiving dinner you will understand why. Hilarious!!!
I enjoyed this spunkier version of Sedona. The author is getting more comfortable with her protagonist and her other prime characters as well. The relationships between them are all growing, some even a little unexpected.
The plot was original but at times a bit too tech savvy and in places hard for me to follow but not too distracting to take away from the story. The methods of hacking to find answers were just a little confusing if you are not familiar with the Information Technology jargon. In the end all the answers come together and I had a few “aha moments”.
The next book in the series Executive Sick Days is available too and on my wish list. This is really a fun cozy series.
