Working Stiff by Tori Carrington -- A Book Review

Sofie Metropolis is a private investigator at her Uncle's agency. She currently finds herself looking for a missing body from her aunt's funeral home, trying to prove a murder defendant's innocence, and dealing with the two men in her love life. As the stress from the cases intensify, her love life is thrown into a tizzy partly due to her meddling mother. Sofie doubts her ability as a PI as she goes days without making progress, but soon she stumbles on a bit of advice that changes everything.

Tori Carrington's story has humor and a touch of romance. The characters achieve a small personal growth by the end of the book which will endear them to the reader.

Carrington discusses old cases Sofie worked, presumably from previous books. At first these are acceptable and relevant, but by the end of the story, they are forced - no longer providing insight for the character's current circumstances.

Overall, the story and characters are entertaining, so many readers will look forward to reading more about Sofie and her life.

This book was purchased by myself at a retail chain. It was not given to me for review. I did not receive any compensation from the publisher or author for this review.
