Katie Maxwell is newly married when her husband’s job takes them on a trip to Europe where she finds herself returning to her sleuthing ways when the project is surrounded in secrecy. Unfortunately Katie’s amateur detective work lands her in hot water and forces her to try to talk her way out of a Parisian jail cell.
When the French detective asks Katie to start at the beginning and what brought her to his city and the unfortunate circumstances Katie couldn’t help but tell the tale of what led up to her wedding and time in the city. Katie had been ready to give up her sleuthing on the days leading to her wedding but she just couldn’t help herself taking her on the overseas adventure.
For the Love of Katie is the second book in the Katie Chronicles. While this is the second book in the series and we did meet Katie and her husband in the first I do believe if one wanted to read just this adventure it would still read OK by itself. You get to know Katie and her quirky personality along with all the other characters quite well in just this edition.
For me with this installment of the story I found myself beginning to question Katie and her constant worry over her relationship. At some point Katie will need to trust her partner or the relationship will be doomed but Katie’s antics also lead to some hilarious adventures so I also can’t see reading her story without them. As with the first book I found myself laughing quite often and just loving the story but hopefully Katie’s brush with a jail cell with calm her trust issues in her relationship in the future.
