Innocent in Las Vegas is a fun, little mystery. Tiffany Black is a twenty-something in Las Vegas. She is just finishing her qualifications for a Private Investigator’s license and feels ready to take on her first case. That’s her day job, by night she is a dealer at a local casino. She gets a call from a girl she went to school with who has been arrested for the murder of her husband. She claims she’s innocent, and she wants Tiffany to prove it.
At first glance, Sophia certainly looks guilty. She was a stripper before she married. Her husband and his family, are casino owners, and the husband was a known womanizer. The gun that killed him was found in Sophia’s bedside table. The family and acquaintances all think she married for the money.
Tiffany starts by interviewing friends and family. She doesn’t get very far before she is being threatened by a couple of scary goons. Sophia hires a security man to protect her, a good-looking security man. There’s a whole lot of misunderstandings about this relationship when Stone accompanies her to dinner with her parents and grandmother. Tiffany keeps digging, but can she uncover the truth?
I really enjoyed this story. It was not a heavy read, but the murderer was not obvious either. Tiffany is delightful as she is feeling her way through her first case. This would be a great book for a vacation read.
