A Real Piece of Work (The Dakota Stevens Mysteries) by Chris Orcutt

Title: A Real Piece of Work (The Dakota Stevens Mysteries)
Author: Chris Orcutt
Available from: Amazon

I absolutely love this book. I’m a little in love with Dakota Stevens. Svetlana scares me; at the same time, I want to be her.

The characters are marvelous and the story, told in first person by Dakota Stevens, former FBI agent and now private investigator, is smart and funny. I was surprised at how sad I was for him at the end.

The only thing I predicted in advance was what would happen to Shay. Otherwise, there was one surprise after another and I totally didn’t see what would happen in the end.

I really don’t want to give away much. I’m going to be recommending this book to everyone I know because the author says the next Dakota Stevens novel won’t be published until this one has sold 1000 copies – and I’m anxious to read the next installment in what will hopefully be a very successful series.

The price, at $4.99, is just right. Don’t let the fact that this is Chris Orcutt’s first novel put you off. This book is well-written and well told.

  1. Thank you for the marvelous review, Julie! I’m glad that you and other readers have had such strong positive reactions to Dakota and Svetlana. I am hard at work rewriting book #2, The Rich Are Different, and I hope readers enjoy that one as much as the first. —Chris
