Charlie Davies has never solved a murder before - or committed one, although it might have crossed her mind. Especially when it comes to James McKenzie. 

"The funniest book I've ever read... It gave me stomach cramps from laughing so much!" - Morgana Best, best-selling mystery author

When rich boy James is accused of killing his uncle, he bets Charlie twenty grand that she can't find the real culprit, and she simply can't resist. The money, that is - she has no trouble resisting him, no matter how symmetrical his stupid face is. 

What James doesn't know is that Charlie has an advantage: she's just begun working at a private investigation company. OK, so she's the receptionist, but it's a start, right? 

What Charlie doesn't know is, well, a lot. But she'd better learn fast, or James will win the bet. As Charlie investigates, things get more and more dangerous. She needs to find the murderer soon, or it won't just be her money and reputation on the line... 

She might lose her head. 

A hilarious mystery series for fans of Stephanie Plum, Lexi Graves and Addison Holmes! 'Losing Your Head' is the first book in The Charlie Davies Mysteries. If you enjoy soft-boiled mysteries with a snarky heroine, give this series a try!

  • Good Read

    This book was hard to put down and had moments that made me laugh out loud which is a feat. I haven’t laughed like this since I read the Calamity Jayne series. I will definitely be purchasing the next book and the rest of this series provided it continues to be as funny and entertaining as this one.

    LOL! The clumsy protagonist in this story was quite comedic and the book was so well written that I clearly visualized every scene. I giggled.. Sometimes outright laughing.. throughout the book!
