Three Strikes, You’re Dead (Eddie Shoes Mystery)
by Elena Hartwell

This series has quickly become one of my favorites. I love that Eddie is an unconventional character.
~Brooke Blogs

What I enjoy so much about this series is the characters. Eddie is a tough cookie but also vulnerable. Her mother, Chava, is a hoot. Another tough cookie but a bit on the zany side.

This is definitely a story you can’t put down and will lead readers to an unexpected ending.
~Texas Book-aholic

Right from the beginning, we see the relationship between Eddie and Chava (a.k.a. “Mom,” a word Eddie is gradually learning to use) developing and maturing as they find themselves more able to enjoy each other without trying to change each other. But lest the relationships be all the book is about, we also dive quickly into a hair-raising bit of adventure and a murder.
~The Ninja Librarian

The author has given us a wonderful PI by the name of Eddie Shoes, and from the get-go we get non-stop action, and you have to wonder if she going to make beyond a few chapters.

The story is fast paced and will keep you turning the pages and trying to catch the curve balls thrown out to keep you off track to figuring it all out until the end.

Private investigator Eddie Shoes heads to a resort outside Leavenworth, Washington, for a mother-daughter getaway weekend. Eddie’s mother Chava wants to celebrate her new job at a casino by footing the bill for the two of them, and who is Eddie to say no?

On the first morning, Eddie goes on an easy solo hike, and a few hours later, stumbles upon a makeshift campsite and a gravely injured man. A forest fire breaks out and she struggles to save him before the flames overcome them both. Before succumbing to his injuries, the man hands her a valuable rosary. He tells her his daughter is missing and begs for her help. Is Eddie now working for a dead man?

Barely escaping the fire, Eddie wakes in the hospital to find both her parents have arrived on the scene. Will Eddie’s card-counting mother and mob-connected father help or hinder the investigation? The police search in vain for a body. How will Eddie find the missing girl with only Eddie’s memory of the man’s face and a photo of his daughter to go on?
