Reviews of Into The Black (Janey McCallister Mystery Book 1) by Beth Barany

Robert Morton reviewed on May 22, 2020

Beth Barney is an author who writes strong characters who are woman. If that bothers you, sorry. She does it, and she does it well. By the way, the men in the stories are strong, they are just not the lead chatterers.

Into the Black is the first in the series of books staring the character Janey McCallister. Janey is the leas investigator of a glamours hotel, gambling, spa in the sky. And on her shift a robbery has taken place of a very valuable jewel. As she tries to investigate, she is bothered by a mysterious insurance investigator who seems to show up before she does. Forced to work together by her boss there is some heat flowing. They find the thief but then another even changes everything.
Through all of this, Janey has to face her fears. And that may be the hardest part of all.

While there is a little bit of kissing going on I would consider the book safe for YA and above. Great book that keeps you guessing what will come next and makes sure you have the info to figure it out.
