I absolutely loved this book and I’m incredibly eager to read more!
Mia is a self-proclaimed geek. She works as the head of IT at a gated community/country club and is not happy to hear about a glitch in her very well-maintained system. The stakes are high enough, what with the founder breathing down her neck to find the problem and fix it fast, before he gets fed up and fires her and the whole staff, but then Mia stumbles upon something even worse. Just hours after her friends Baxter and Nate come to tell her . . . well, something, Mia finds Baxter dead in her fancy ergonomic desk chair. Suddenly, Mia’s a suspect in the murder of one of her only friends. The handsome head of security, Jake Archer, hounds Mia’s every step and she can’t quite put her finger on his true intentions or motivations.
A Geek Girl’s Guide to Murder is full of quick-witted dialogue that reminded me of watching “Gilmore Girls.” Mia is a fresh and fantastic heroine – smart and sassy; a woman standing firmly on her own two well-shod feet. Her family is hilariously quirky, and I love how close they all are.
The interplay between Mia and Jake is outstanding; they make a perfect pair. The pace of the plot is brisk and, all too soon, I was at the final chapter . . . which hurt my heart for so many reasons. A Geek Girl’s Guide to Murder rocketed to the top of my favorite reads list and I’m counting the days (literally!) until I can get my hands on the next in the series!

IT manager Mia Connors is up to her tortoiseshell glasses in technical drama when a glitch in the Horseshoe Falls email system disrupts security and sends errant messages to residents of the gated community. The snafu’s timing couldn’t be worse—Renaissance Faire season is in full swing and Mia’s family’s business relies on her presence.
Mia doesn’t have time to hunt down a computer hacker. Her best friend has disappeared, and she finds another of her friends murdered—in her office. When the hunky new head of Horseshoe Falls security identifies Mia as the prime suspect, her anxiety level registers on the Richter scale.
Eager to clear her name, Mia moves into action to locate her missing buddy and find out who killed their friend. But her quick tongue gets her into trouble with more than the new head of security. When Mia begins receiving threats, the killer makes it clear that he’s closer than she’d ever imagined.
