Product Description

Product Description

Jack’s life is awesome. His store is making money hand over fist and his best friend has found love. So what if he’s feeling a bit restless and put out about his upcoming birthday and his ex is being a pain in his fabulous behind? That’s nothing he can’t handle. But then his smoking hot new bookkeeper discovers things at the store aren’t actually as they seem. Someone is playing fast and loose with the finances. Jack’s bestie and his gal pals, the gray-haired knitting detectives, jump at the chance to solve Jack’s problems. When they aren’t re-enacting scenes from spy thrillers, they’re setting Jack up on dates and generally insinuating themselves into his love life. They’re determined to find love for Jack as well as his missing money. Will Jack catch a thief or find love? Either way Jack’s going to get his man.

About the Author

I was born and raised in Wisconsin, but think I’m a European. After spending my senior year of high school in Germany, I developed a bad case of wanderlust that is yet to be cured. My flying Dutch husband and I have lived in Ohio, Virginia, the Netherlands, Germany and now Istanbul. We still haven’t decided if we want to settle down somewhere – let alone where. I’m leaning towards somewhere I can learn to surf even though the hubby thinks that’s a less than sound way to decide where to live. Although I’ve been a military policewoman, a commercial lawyer, and a B&B owner, I think with writing I may have finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up. That’s assuming I ever grow up, of course. Between playing tennis, running much slower than I would like, trying to adopt every stray dog within a 5-mile radius, traveling to exotic new locales, singing off tune, drinking entirely too many adult beverages, addictively watching new movies and reading books like they are going out of style, I write articles for a local expat magazine and various websites, review other indie authors’ books, write a blog about whatever comes to mind and am working on my sixth book.

I love Haggerty’s writing. Her stories are always so much fun, and this one is definitely no exception. The plot was not only intricately crafted but it was as funny as anything. Not only that, but this novel is all about inclusivity. Haggerty focuses on a variety of themes, bringing them to the forefront without singling them out. Same sex relationships, cross dressing, and a myriad of other things are simply part of the story, rather than something to be brought up again and again as an ‘other’ to focus on.

The cast of characters that Haggerty has created for this novel was unforgettable. She combines a pair of gray haired, knitting, investigators with a gay store owner to create an all-out fantastic tale that is very character driven. Everyone is very well developed and easy to connect with, fulfilling their roles well.

This is a fantastic novel that had me in stitches while also keeping me on my toes. It could either be read on its own or as the second instalment in this absolutely hilarious series.

Please note I received a complementary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Poor Jack has problems. His business that he co-owns with his ex, Wyatt, is doing fabulous. So well that he had to hire a manager to look after things for them. The manager told Jack he needed help and wanted an assitant. Jack said no to the assistant but said he would hire a bookkeeper. With his best friend Izzy's help Jack hired Damien. He was very qualified for the job, but Jack especially wanted to hire him because he was hotter than any of the other candidates. It doesn't take Damien long to figure out that someone has been fudging the books so the business is losing a lot of money.

The old ladies in the knitting club find out about this and decide to help investigate who is stealing from him. It's always fun when they get involved in anything. I love the way the elderly ladies from Izzy's grandmother's knitting club are referred to as "Jessica Fletcher wannabees". One of the ladies used to be an accountant so she worked with Damien to figure out how the money was being taken and were it went.

I loved the characters and the plot in Jack Gets His Man. Jack is a gorgeous gay man who is so enamored with Damien that he barely hears the interview questions Izzy is asking him. He wants to hire him as soon as he sees him. The older women "detectives" are a hoot. I chuckled picturing them dressed for a stake out, all in black. They had to wear black scarves to cover their white hair!

D.E. Haggerty writes wonderfully funny mysteries that have lots of detail and chuckles throughout. Actually the story itself isn't all that funny but the characters sure are.

HASH(0xa3af52ac) out of 5 stars Fun, Light-hearted mystery with a little M/m thrown in Aug. 30 2015
By Jodie's W.I.N.E. List - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book caught me a little off guard. I was expecting a book that focused on the M/M romance with a little mystery thrown in. But it ended up being a light-hearted mystery with a little matchmaking thrown in.

I just had to love the ladies in the Knitting Crew. I could just picture a group of little old ladies who are sticking their nose in people's business with the best of intentions. Their antics made the story so fun to read it was hard to put down.

And what's a bunch of old ladies without a little meddling into someone's love life. Jack is the victim in this story. I just had to laugh. Just the idea of a crew of little old ladies being so accepting of his sexuality that they would try to set him up was comical. It was nice to see so many people be so accepting of everyone. Jack's personality really showed in the book. I could hear the sarcasm in his voice so many times.

This book is a part of the series, but according to the synopsis, it can be read as a stand alone. I have not read the first book, Murder, Mystery, and Dating Mayhem. There were several times while reading that I wish I had read the first. The antics of the Knitting Crew from that book were referenced a couple times and Izzy and Noel play key parts in this one. I think I will be reading it before I read the third book, Love in the Time of Murder, due out in October 2015.

This book is written in third person POV, focusing on Jack's thoughts and actions. It is a stand alone with no violence.

HASH(0xa3af5300) out of 5 stars Book Review of Jack Gets His Man by D.E. Haggerty July 25 2015
By Joy Nwosu Lo-Bamijoko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a light hearted read of crime investigation of a different kind. Even the love affaires were a mixture of the orthodox, and non orthodox. It gave us a glimpse into the love life of a few gay men, living theirs normal lives, without any inhibitions.

The five female seniors’ involvement in all of this, especially the investigation, is both hilarious and endearing. I would imagine that this was their way of remaining relevant in the affaires of their community. I admired mostly their open mindedness in their acceptance of Jack, and their effort in making sure that Jack was happy in his business, and private life.

Izzy was a woman to my own heart. She proved that a good friendship is something to treasure, and that a good friendship should not tamper with her love for a spouse. She managed both relationships very well. This story was really more about the escapades of some busy body grandmothers. At certain points, the story came through almost like a child’s play. it was entertaining.

HASH(0xa3af55dc) out of 5 stars lighthearted mystery Sept. 17 2015
By Terry Bickel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was given this book for free to read and then to leave my review. I had not read book 1 but had no problem jumping right into this book which was book 2. It is a fun and lighthearted mystery with some very interesting characters. I love how the friendships between everyone are evolving. Some of the lines are laugh out loud funny. They call the older ladies in the story "Jessica Fletcher" wannabees and that is a perfect description. Read and enjoy.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

I had not read the first book, but jumped right in, and enjoyed the fun style of the group of knitting detectives, the couple and Jack. I like the relationships of all involved and the continuing evolution of the relationships. I would recommend this book (and am) to friend that read. It was light hearted, quick to read, and fun in all the best ways.
