What Lola Wants is the 4th installment of the Lola Cruz private detective mystery series by Melissa Bourbon. This series was recommended to me by author Diane Kelly, who also sponsored the free copy of the book give away in September. Each book is stand-alone, and this was the first one I read.
The Sacramento Police Department has hired Camacho and Associates for one specific reason: They need private investigator Lola Cruz to go undercover at The Broadway, a salsa club suspected of running a prostitution ring. She fits the description: Young, Latina, and beautiful. But her new boyfriend thinks the job is too dangerous, which causes tension between the two. Will he go back to his ex-fiance’ when Lola puts her job ahead of him? At the same time, Lola’s family still has not accepted that she has chosen a career that they consider to be a man’s job. Her young cousin finds himself in a dangerous situation after becoming involved in an online chat room where murder is encouraged. She tries to prove to her family that she has a serious, respectable career.
Lola’s very handsome boss, Manny Camacho, seems to be well known at The Broadway but doesn’t really explain his connection. Could he romantically involved with one of the criminals? Lola discovers that the last woman who tried to infiltrate the club was recently found dead. Unfortunately, the secrets at the club go much deeper than prostitution, and Lola finds herself caught up in a dangerous game.
