Publisher's Summary

Miranda Vaughn was once falsely accused of stealing millions, and now she's helping others who are facing criminal charges. While being an assistant to her former defense attorney isn't Miranda's dream job, she's eager to prove herself, and her first task is a simple one - protect Kathryn, a shy CFO turned informant, and help her prove that a popular real estate developer is embezzling millions from his company. But what should be a straightforward assignment is deliciously complicated when Miranda is thrown together with FBI Agent Jake Barnes, the man who saved her life, broke her heart, and then disappeared.
Beneath the neatly plotted rows of new homes lurk dark secrets, bitter feuds and a whole lot of greed. Nothing is what it appears; even Miranda's timid client is hiding secrets of her own. Despite her growing distrust of her client, Miranda must protect Kathryn from becoming the target of the FBI's investigation and protect herself from the real thief - all while protecting her heart from the sexy FBI agent she can't seem to resist.

Up a trellis 3 floors from the ground

Another excellent mystery headlining Miranda Vaughn!
She works for the lawyer who saved her from a wrongful fraud charge and who now is personally involved with her aunt. A new case comes in where her expertise is needed. She meets some real high fliers, does a spot or two of questionable entry, faces the same FBI agent, has her car involved in an explosion, and gets shot at. But there's lots more, and enough plot twists to make your head spin! Reading the first book is not a necessity, but another totally enjoyable work.
I requested and received a free audio copy of this one because I had really enjoyed Chasing the Dollar last year.
Teri Schnaubelt performed both of them, and was awesome!

Temporary headline

Miranda has learned that "not guilty" is not the same as "innocent" in the mind of the public. She's now working for her defense attorney, who is now also her mother's lover. (Awkward.) And she's protecting a corporate CFO who claims her boss may be doing something illegal with the books.

The mystery is interesting. Miranda is likeable. There are twists and turns to keep you guessing. And maybe there's the potential of a little romance, although the FBI agent who's investigating the CFO's allegations is giving decidedly mixed signals.

I enjoyed this and will listen again. I recommend it.

(Disclosure: I received a free copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest review.)

This was a very well written story which I thoroughly enjoyed. I didn't pick who the bad guy was in this till the very end after being wrong about the 'who done it' part in which was quite refreshing. Can't wait to see what happens in the next book to this series.
