Sky High by Susan O’Brien

25880279Private investigator Nicki Valentine and her former teacher (and current flame) wait with a church full of people for the appearance of a very important person: the groom. At first, it seems that he’s simply running late; but as time continues to pass, the guests, the priest, and the bride give in to their worse fears: Bruce isn’t coming to his own wedding. Though missing persons cases are neither Nicki nor Dean’s area of expertise, the groom’s father hires the pair to figure out what happened to and where his son is.

As Dean and Nicki dig deeper into the case and uncover new leads, they deepen their romance, too. Nicki is a smart, sarcastic, and funny single mom of two, whose husband died a few years earlier. Dean is a striking, handsome, and clever ex-Army officer who, despite her fears to the contrary, is quite taken with his former student. Sky High is a clever contemporary mystery written with warmth and intelligence. The perfect story – and series – for the modern mystery fan.

About the Book
Single mom and rookie P.I. Nicki Valentine rarely gets time off, so attending a wedding with her super hot colleague Dean sounds dreamy. But things turn nightmarish when the groom — a soon-to-be transplant donor — disappears, and Nicki and Dean commit to a partnership they never planned.

Together, they examine the groom’s unfulfilled promises, including one to his mom, a psychic medium with an unusual health need. As family secrets emerge, Nicki must face questions about her late husband, whose long-ago betrayal still threatens to cloud her judgment.

With support from her pole-dancing best friend, her always-on-call family, and the loves of her life (her two kids — and possibly Dean), Nicki must uncover the groom’s demons while conquering her own.
