Romance Suspense | Romance Comedy

THE BLAST FROM THE PAST, book three of the Lucy Score Riley Thorn series, begins just after psychic Riley Thorn and her sexy cop turned Private Investigator boyfriend Nick Santiago solve their last case and move into the fixer-upper next door to her original octogenarian roommates.  When Riley’s psychic mother reveals that the sister of Nick’s former partner, Detective Weber is alive, Nick becomes obsessed.  Nick’s guilt over Beth’s disappearance caused him to leave the police force and created a wedge with his partner and best friend, Detective Kellen Weber. Riley works with her spiritual guide Gabe while trying to keep the business and her relationship going with Nick locked away in his office. The mystery gets deeper when Beth suddenly returns and Nick is still completely involved in the case.  Filled with zany characters and over-the-top adventures including a Halloween and a birthday party with all the surprises. Fans of the STEPHANIE PLUM series by Janet Evanovich will enjoy this one.  Looking forward to the fourth book that took two years since the last release.

SUMMARY

Riley Thorn and her hot, tattooed, private investigator boyfriend are all moved in to their new fixer-upper. Not only do they finally have their own place, they also haven't found any new dead bodies on the premises.

Yep. It looks like summer is over and so is Riley's bad luck. Or is it?

While Nick gives up sleeping and showering to obsess over the cold case that still haunts him, his business partner Mrs. Penny is calling the investigative shots. It's every bit as bad as you can imagine.

Meanwhile, Riley has her hands full fixing up the crumbling crime scene they call home and setting boundaries with the breaking-and-entering octogenarians next door. You know. Normal stuff.

But normal comes to a screeching halt when our favorite psychic is abducted by a stranger with candy, and her powers go on the fritz. To make matters worse, it becomes clear that Riley's new house guests are definitely either in trouble or are trouble after bad guys deliver a warning with a severed finger.

Can Nick and Riley solve the case the old-fashioned way before they all end up in pieces? Or will a surprise birthday party, a dog doody bandit, an accidental arson, and a blast from the past be too much for them to handle?
