Recovery by Alexandrea Weis

Book Description:
Recovery by Alexandrea Weis is the second novel in the wildly sexy series featuring the enigmatic Nicci Beauvoir. A thrilling read, this character-driven book boasts a whodunit mystery, sultry seductions, and an unforgettable cliffhanging twist. Once a darling of New Orleans society, Nicci pens a novel about her departed love, the artist David Alexander. While promoting her book in the Big Apple, she’s approached by David’s former boss, Simon La Roy, who has a theory about David’s death that devastates Nicci. She learns David’s murder may be linked to someone from her past. Enter Dallas August, an elite member of Simon’s organization of corporate spies prized for his ruthless ability to get the job done. Playing the part of Nicci’s lover, Dallas returns to Katrina-ravaged New Orleans with her to flush out the killer. But everything is not what is seems in the Big Easy, and soon the couple finds themselves trapped in a psychotic’s twisted game of revenge. As the danger grows, Nicci’s relationship with the handsome spy turns from adversarial to amorous. On the run for their lives, Dallas and Nicci must confront their tormentor before it is too late. It’s a deadly decision that could cost Nicci everything, but it is her only chance for finally revealing the identity of the murderer. Just as the truth behind David’s death is discovered, another more compelling mystery is unearthed. It’s an unexpected turn of events that rocks Nicci’s world.

My Thoughts:
I very much enjoyed this book. I didn't realize it was the second about Nicci, but it stood alone wonderfully. Nicci's fiance was murdered and she has learned to cope. She wrote a book about Daniel and at a book signing, she is approached by Simon LeRoy who was Daniel's boss. After he reveals a lot of surprising details, Simon asks for her help in finding Daniel's murderer. She is paired up with Dallas, a seemingly cold man, and they go down to hurricane ripped New Orleans to find the murderer!
Nicci's character was my favorite. She has had her heart broken but still living and actually has a sense of humor. Dallas is a strong, supposed to be cold man, but Nicci realizes that is just what he shows the world, he really is a caring man. There are a lot of support characters you come to know and like. It is a fast paced read with lots of surprises revealed. The author did a wonderful job on character development and I can't wait to learn more about Nicci and 'meet' her again!
I rate this a 4/5. I'm going to pick up her first book soon!
