It’s a case of mystery, murder, romance, and deadly pursuit in the very first adventure of Izzy and Darren!
When a Detroit man is viciously assaulted during an explosive police siege, anxiety-plagued rookie defense lawyer Issabella Bright rushes off to take his case. A freshly-minted attorney who has hardly seen the inside of a courtroom, Issabella convinces herself that defending this one helpless soul is the opportunity she needs to jumpstart her legal career and conquer the self-doubt she’s always struggled with.
Unbeknownst to her, Darren Fletcher– a charming, reckless, and ludicrously rich attorney who runs his office out of a booth at the back of a unicorn-infested bar –also races across town to land the case and resurrect his once-brilliant career. With visions of masterful courtroom drama and virtuoso defense work propelling him on, Darren dreams of reclaiming his reputation and banishing the ghost of a shocking tragedy that has haunted him for years.
Barreling along this collision course, neither of the two lawyers are aware that they are plunging into the heart of a conspiracy involving corrupt officials, organized crime, and an illegal fortune hidden away in Michigan’s far north. If they’re going to survive, Darren and Issabella will have to form an unlikely partnership and uncover the truth without falling prey to a sniper’s bullet or attracting the deadly instincts of a brilliant hired killer pursuing his own lethal investigation.
Book One of the Bright and Fletcher Mysteries is a page-turner packed full of the thrilling elements and unique characters fans of the series have come to know and love: two seemingly mismatched lawyers-turned-amateur sleuths, humorous dialogue, absurd courtroom drama, the beginning of an enduring romance, and fascinating villains plotting to blow apart the most entertaining and endearing partners in law and love to be found between the pages of a novel!
