Title: Riley Thorn and the Blast from the Past
Author: Lucy Score
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: April 21, 2022
Riley Thorn and her hot, tattooed, private investigator boyfriend are all moved in to their new fixer-upper. Not only do they finally have their own place, they also haven’t found any new dead bodies on the premises.
Yep. It looks like summer is over and so is Riley’s bad luck. Or is it?
While Nick gives up sleeping and showering to obsess over the cold case that still haunts him, his business partner Mrs. Penny is calling the investigative shots. It’s every bit as bad as you can imagine.
Meanwhile, Riley has her hands full fixing up the crumbling crime scene they call home and setting boundaries with the breaking-and-entering octogenarians next door. You know. Normal stuff.
But normal comes to a screeching halt when our favorite psychic is abducted by a stranger with candy, and her powers go on the fritz. To make matters worse, it becomes clear that Riley’s new houseguests are definitely either in trouble or are trouble after bad guys deliver a warning with a severed finger.
Can Nick and Riley solve the case the old-fashioned way before they all end up in pieces? Or will a surprise birthday party, a dog doody bandit, an accidental arson, and a blast from the past be too much for them to handle?
‘This book is even funnier than the last; I don’t know how she does it! Reading this was like watching a sitcom. Every quirky character, all the sharp wit and of course the glue that holds it all together, the charming and adorably dimpled Nick.’ ~Bookstagrambrielle

My Review: *****
Riley Thorn and the Blast from the Past is a freaking hilarious mix of mystery and mayhem. Lucy Score keeps her readers amused with this unsolved murder mystery tale from the first book, with Kellen’s sister Beth Weber missing for the last five years after the warehouse fire. Nick Santigo and Riley Thorn solve another mystery, along with octogenarians living next door, Riley’s former roommates.
I love Lucy Score’s writing; it reminds me of the first time I read Janet Evanovich’s number series, only funnier!
