Private Investigator Regan Reilly and her husband Jack, head of the NYPD Major Case Squad, are in Los Angeles where Jack is attending a business conference. After the conference, Jack and Regan plan to take off in their rental car for a mini vacation.

In downtown L.A., Regan runs into an old acquaintance and takes her up on an invitation to a dinner party. As they reconnect, Regan realizes that her friend Zelda's life has changed drastically since they last spoke. First, Zelda was left a considerable chunk of change by a neighbor she barely knew. Then she began her new career as a life coach. Most shockingly, she's learned that her father and his new girlfriend just had a spur-of-the-moment wedding at a drive-through chapel in Vegas! Zelda asks Regan to do a simple background check on her father's new wife. But before she can start, Regan gets sidetracked by a poisoning, a murder attempt, and a scam more despicable than she ever could have imagined! Will Regan ever get to enjoy her vacation with Jack?

The books aren't very exciting but I found myself reading the whole series.

I had never read anything by Mary or Carol Higgins Clark, but I had vaguely heard of Regan Reilly mysteries so I grabbed this audiobook in the library. I’ll steer clear of Carol books from now on, but might still give Mary a shot someday. It didn’t begin “Once upon a time…” or end “…lived happily ever after” but it might as well have. It’s somewhere between a Disney fairy tale and a Nancy Drew book – aimed at pre-tweens with vocabulary and sophistication to suit. It’s full of cute little old ladies and cartoony villains. The reader, who didn’t help matters by overacting, had to read very slowly to stretch it to five disks. It wasn’t offensive, or what I would call awful, but I was relieved when I found the last disk popping out of my car player.

Quick read. One or two "extra" characters. This time the client was portrayed as way too gullible!

Everything always ties up in the end! Everyone seems to be connected somehow.
