Chasing the Dollar (Book 1)
Miranda Vaughn has spent the last year and a half fighting for her freedom. Arrested for a fraud scheme involving her supervisors, she’s lost her job at a prestigious investment firm, her fiancé, and her reputation. She walks out of the courtroom a free woman, only to find that life has a few more curve balls to throw her way. The jury may have found her not guilty, but Miranda is broke, in debt to her beloved aunt, and can’t find a job because of the cloud of suspicion still swirling around her. She’s not going to be able to move forward with her life until she finds out who set her up.
Buried in the evidence against her, Miranda finds a larger scheme, one involving far more money than the $37 million her boss fleeced from unsuspecting investors. Determined to uncover the truth, Miranda begins her own investigation – leading her to Macau and Belize, and into the arms of one sexy FBI agent, who may or may not prove to be trustworthy. When the danger heats up, Miranda finds herself in a race against time to find the person behind it all. Before he finds her….
USA Today best-selling author Ellie Ashe has always been drawn to jobs where she can tell stories—journalist, lawyer, and now writer. Writing quirky romantic mysteries is how she gets the “happily ever after” that so often is lacking in her day job.
When not writing, you can find her with her nose in a good book, watching far too much TV, or trying out new recipes on unsuspecting friends and family. She lives in Northern California with her husband and three cats, all of whom worry when she starts browsing the puppy listings on petfinder.com.
Teri Schnaubelt is a Chicago-based actor, voice actor and audiobook narrator with over 100 titles, including NY Times Bestsellers.
I chose to listen to this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
Chasing the Dollar is an adventure and mystery that is a fun read even though it is suspenseful at times.
Miranda Vaughn was arrested for fraud and embezzlement at the investment company she worked at and she was found not guilty, which she was. She was set up. Unfortunately, Miranda used all of her savings as well as her aunt’s savings for her trial and she can’t find a job because now she’s a high risk hire.
Miranda decides to try to clear her name and ends up on the adventure of her life. She also has to trust Jake Barmes, the FBI agent who had arrested her! They get to know each other and she realizes he’s not so bad while he realizes she’s not guilty. Also, to make things even more interesting, there’s a spark between them.
Chasing the Dollar never slows down. Ellie Ashe has a great writing style and the narrator, Teri Schnaubelt, does the story justice. She brings the characters to life and I look forward to listening to her narration of the next book in the series. If you like mystery/thrillers with a bit of humor, you’ll enjoy Chasing the Dollar.
