A world built of words
visit the far corners of the earth, live a thousand lives, read.
IT manager Mia Connors is up to her tortoiseshell glasses in technical drama when a glitch in the Horseshoe Falls email system disrupts security and sends errant messages to residents of the gated community. The snafu’s timing couldn’t be worse—Renaissance Faire season is in full swing and Mia’s family’s business relies on her presence.
Mia doesn’t have time to hunt down a computer hacker. Her best friend has disappeared, and she finds another of her friends murdered—in her office. When the hunky new head of Horseshoe Falls security identifies Mia as the prime suspect, her anxiety level registers on the Richter scale.
Eager to clear her name, Mia moves into action to locate her missing buddy and find out who killed their friend. But her quick tongue gets her into trouble with more than the new head of security. When Mia begins receiving threats, the killer makes it clear that he's closer than she’d ever imagined.

I am totally obsessed with geek girls at the moment, I have read three novels recently with the leading lady is a total geek but has this undeniable sex appeal and a back bone, what's not to love right. I am loving the celebration on women being intelligent owning their lives and being successful in a range of areas. This novel is about power house IT manager and entrepreneur, its how her life is turned upside down by a murder, but that's not the only thing Mia has to figure out, their is major problem with her email system, a new head of security that confuses her, interests her and also doesn't trust her.
With the mystery unfolding, chemistry building and secrets and hidden agendas being revealed there is only one thing Mia can do, hold on tight and brace, but when the dust settles and all becomes clear will she be getting her happy ending?
This book for me was a hoot! I enjoyed the unravelling of the mystery, I didnt have a clue where it was going, I was hooked and the only way i was going to find the truth was reading to the very last page! No skimming!!
The plot way superb well thought out, no surplus chapters which is a pet hate for me, REMEMBER if you could move a chapter anywhere in the book and it still would make sense, its not needed but this book had a great flow. I loved the characters their complexity and their range of emotions where fabulous!
A thoroughly good read! Get your geek on people!
