Devil's Bargain 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers.
2 of 5 stars false  
Jasmine "Jazz" Callender is on the downhill slide to ruin. Once a decorated homicide detective, she's lost it all: her former partner's been convicted of murder, she's been cashiered out, and she's drinking away what little self-respect she's got left.
But Jazz has a talent for trouble, and somebody knows it. When a mysterious, sexy stranger comes looking for her with a fateful red envelope in his hand, she's about to make the deal of her life...for good or bad.
The deal requires her to enter into a partnership with a stranger and investigate cases that arrive in special red envelopes...which is odd enough, but gets weirder as she and her new partner Lucia realize that they may be working for someone with supernatural abilities.
And maybe they're not on the side of the angels anymore.


****NetGalley provided me with a copy of this book for my honest review****
Jasmine spends her days drinking in bars; she is no longer a homicide detective since her partner was convicted of murder. One day while she is drinking in a bar a mysterious man comes to her, he tells her the company he works for is offering to set up a private investigator firm if she partners with a woman named Lucia. Whenever a red envelope arrives the women have to do what it says, at the same time Jazz is trying to find a way to prove her partner Ben was innocent of the murders. Jazz is strong, woman with self destructive tendencies, she rushes into situations without knowing what it going on. Lucia is more reserved, she is still a kick ass woman, but she holds back and doesn't let people in. James, Jazz’s love interest, faded into the background for most of the story, he was a very blah character. I had a really hard time getting into this book; there were too many questions and not enough answers. There was some action in this book and a whole lot of mystery. When I thought that I was finally going to get some answers, I was left with a cliffhanger. I had a lot of problems with this book and the only thing that saved it from being a one star was the writing. I did not like the story but Rachel can write a good action scene and the book was put together well. I will be reading the next book in this series simply because I loathe cliffhangers so I have to know what happened.
