Sin on the Strip by Lucy Farago

What happens in Las Vegas always burns bright, especially after hours. In this sizzling new series, the city's 24/7 glitz hides one woman's darkest nightmares—and one investigator's seductive secrets...

Control is everything to gorgeous Maggie Anderson. Her exclusive club gives abused and troubled women a refuge from Vegas's merciless streets—and helps her reclaim her shattered sense of freedom. But now someone is brutally murdering those she fights so hard to save. And baring her deepest fears to the one man who insists on protecting her could be the one move she won't survive…

Elite private investigator Christian Beck knows this particular serial killer's MO—and his own wrenching failure to find him—all too well. But staying two steps ahead of Maggie's determination to uncover the truth pushes his well-honed skills past the limit—and ignites his most naked instincts. Now every clue is a lie, each irresistible desire a lethal trap. And the closer he and Maggie get, their shattering secrets will either save them—or torch their lives to glittering ash…

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I really enjoyed this book as it developed. We are given the bare bones at the beginning and then peel away the layers on these interesting characters. There is much more to come, as this is the first in a series, and the ladies definitely all deserve their story being told too.

Here we concentrate on Maggie, who has a deep desire to do good, and has an amazing band of friends to help her do it, whilst trying to keep her safe. Christian Beck, a private investigator (and more, we find out) gets involved in case which features Maggie, large and loud. He comes with a host of preconceptions, which slowly he lays to one side, as this woman gets under his skin (and his body!). Between them they redefine the terms stubborn, and cut off, but then the course of true love never runs smooth!!

The plot is sound, and the clues were there for the reader who was looking, but it plays out well and sets up the next book very effectively...

Lucy Farago knows there is nothing like a happy sigh at the end of a good book. With the encouragement of her loving husband, she wrote her first manuscript. An unpublished historical, it sits in a file on her computer, there to remind her how much fun she had learning the craft and becoming part of an industry whose books make you believe anything is possible. A big fan of Agatha Christie, she set out to write her first romantic suspense novel. Thrilled to be a published author, Lucy also teaches yoga, enjoys cooking, and saying what other people are thinking. In her fantasy world, her beautiful Siberian husky, Loki, doesn’t shed and her three kids clean up after themselves. Alas, that fantasy will never see fruition.
