Synopsis: 

Breaking up can be one of the hardest things a person can do, something that the dedicated team at Washed Hands, Inc. thoroughly understands. Whether one’s soon-to-be-ex is manipulative, violent, or anything else that makes a clean break difficult, the company’s rejection counselors ensure that the split is established and maintained in no uncertain terms. And in the toughest cases, no one’s better at this than Monica Deimos.

Brought in on what appeared to be a relatively straight-forward domestic nightmare, Monica realizes all-too-late that she has been set up to take the fall for the murder of a wealthy socialite.

As the police close in, Monica needs to discover who she can trust, who wants her out of the way, and why she was framed.

She’s no fool, though. The best case scenario ends in a jail cell… the worst in a body bag.

Review: I wanted to give this book a shot mostly because of the concept. An agency specialised in handling break-ups? That’s Washed Hands, Inc. What a great concept! Monica Deimos, our main character, is excellent at her job, making sure break-ups are handled in a clean, professional way. But when a client’s spouse ends up murdered, and all evidence points to Monica, she finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery.

I loved Monica. She has a grerat personality, and she manages to keep her head cool, even in dire circumstances. An intriguing plot, and solid writing.
