About the Book
When a Polar Plunge goes terribly wrong and someone dies in the icy water, former TV detective Joey Darling wants nothing to do with subsequent investigation. But when her picture is found in the dead man’s wallet and witnesses place her as the last person seen with the man, she realizes she’s been cast in a role she never wanted: suspect.
Joey makes the dramatic mistake of challenging the killer on camera, and now it’s a race to find the bad guy before he finds her. Danger abounds and suspects are harder to find than the Lost Colony of Roanoke Island. But when Joey finds a connection with this case and the disappearance of her father, she knows there’s no backing out.
As hard as Joey tries to be like her super detective alter ego, the more things go wrong. Will Joey figure this one out? Or will her reign of error continue?

In My Opinion
Y’all, I am so far behind on Christy Barritt books. It’s only because a few of them are now available on audiobook that I’m able to make a slight dent in the backlist (but I like the narrator for this series).
Joey Darling played a detective on television. Now she finds herself embroiled in real-life mysteries.
While the series is categorized as romantic suspense, there’s a lightheartedness to this one too. The pop-culture references to actors, television shows, and movies add some fun to the stories. And Joey’s sometimes self-deprecating sense of humor ups that factor.
In Reign of Error, Barritt reveals more of Joey’s (and Jackson’s) past as she scrambled to find a murderer. The will-they-or-won’t-they push and pull between Joey and Jackson has me ready to dig into the next book.
