Chase Me by Sharon Kleve @SharonKleve #CozyMystery #RomanticSuspense #Friendship

The Plot:

Sage McGuire had a great job she loved. All that changed in the blink of an eye when her long-time boss, Mr. Smithfield, had an accident involving an over-sized rubber band. When Mr. Smithfield’s semi-worthless son, Daniel, takes over Smithfield Laboratories Sage figures it’s time to turn her childhood dream of being a PI into reality.

After a night of unadulterated, mind-blowing sex Sage mistakes Sergeant Carter Morgan of the Portland Police Department for a serial killer and runs for the hills, but his sexy pinecone scent and black leather pants have her coming back for more.

Sage’s wild spirit, crazy red hair, and quirky sense of humor take Carter for the ride of his life and he’s more than willing to stick around and see what kind of trouble Sage can get herself into next.

About the Author:

Sharon Kleve was born and raised in Washington and currently lives on the Olympic Peninsula with her husband.

Sharon is a multi-published author of contemporary romance. She loves romance. She loves reading romance, living romance, and especially loves writing about romance. She gets no greater feeling than watching her characters come alive in each other’s arms. Most of all, she loves giving her characters the happily ever after they deserve—with a few bumps and bruises along the way.

One of her favorite things to do is pick up a new book and sink into the story, immersing herself in the emotions between the characters. She hopes to inspire her readers the same way her favorite authors have inspired her.

When not writing, she can usually be found either curled up in her recliner with her cat and a good book, or in the kitchen baking sourdough bread or bagels.


Sage McGuire is good at her job. As the administrative assistant to Mr. Smithfield of Smithfield Laboratories, she pretty much runs the place. (Show me a boss who can cope without his admin, and I’ll try to wrest my first-born from her husband and give her to you.) It’s a good thing Sage is competent, because Daniel Smithfield, the boss’ son, clearly isn’t. Actually, I found some of his naiveté to be a bit of a stretch. While the scene in which Daniel goes dumpster-diving in search of his e-mail was funny, it was hard to believe anyone could grow up in the late twentieth/early twenty-first century and not know what e-mail is, or how to work a smart phone—no matter how short his dad kept the leash. I can certainly understand Sage wanting to work for herself instead of spoon-feeding an overgrown baby.

About Sage becoming a private investigator. It kind of doesn’t help that Sage is somewhat of a klutz. At least it doesn’t help her career. It makes the book hilarious, as she blunders her way into the life of a narcotics detective, and “helps” him solve a big case. Well, okay, she does play a fairly large role in solving the case, but she didn’t exactly plan to. If I say much more, I might spoil it for you. Just go get Chase Me. Take Daniel Smithfield’s helplessness with a grain of salt. (How does one get an MBA without understanding what e-mail is?) And just enjoy the exploits of Sage and her friends Bridget and Ophelia, not to mention the heat between Sage and Carter.
