Hot Shot

By Charlotte Hughes

Detective Frankie Daniels finds herself in disgrace after her affair with a fellow officer and married man is made public. So when she is offered a position with a police force in a different town, she decides to accept it. So that's how she ends up in Purdyville, South Carolina, a small rural community with not much going on, at least compared to where she used to work, Atlanta.
One of the first things she does on her arrival in Purdyville is get in a brawl with one of the local punks and also, without knowing who he was, get into a spat with her new boss. Plus the house she had just rented burned down. She is feeling very disgruntled with everything and has quickly decided that Purdyville is not for her and that as soon as she can manage it, she is moving on. But her new boss, Sheriff Matt, is pretty sure that Frankie is just what his police force needs, not mention what he needs too.

I don't know, I just don't buy these tiny tough-guy female cops who are able to drop a man who probably outweighs them by 100 pounds. Plus I thought Frankie was unnecessarily belligerent. And I didn't care for the sex scenes (which I skipped) between her and the sheriff. And the plot wasn't a real attention grabber either. I'm not going to say it was a bad read, but it didn't appeal to me.
