Book Swap Linkup!

So I participated in my first blog swap and it was all about books. I may not have shared this much but I read, A LOT. So I was very excited when I came across this link-up over at Heather's Blonde...Undercover Blonde, & Katie @ The Nerdy Katie Check it out! 

I felt kinda bad since her list of books were almost all not out yet but then I found one I liked on her list and sent it over to her! 
She was so nice she sent me 3 books! 

I actually read this over last week and loved it! I am excited to continue the series. 
Champion discount shopper Finley Tanner has never thought of her job in the Estates and Trusts
Department of Dane, Lieberman and Zarnowski as anything but a means to keep her in last
season's Lilly Pulitzer—until Victor Dane makes her babysit estates client Stacy Evans, who's
convinced that her jeweler husband Marcus's auto death was no accident. At first, Finley goes
along with Dane's wish to appease the client without really investigating her claim. But when she
discovers that Marcus Evans served on a jury with the late Jos Vasquez and Graham Keller in a
malpractice case brought by the estate of Brad Whitley against transplant surgeon Kent Hall and
defended by Dane, Lieberman and Zarnowski, Finley is suddenly very attentive. Petty harassment
at the office—on orders from above, Margaret the evil receptionist makes her sign in and out and
logs her phone calls—and threatening notes pinned to her front door don't deter her, and the
chance to work with sexy p.i. Liam McGarrity, a stunning counterpoint to her loyal but boring
boyfriend Patrick, is a bonus. But it's her inner drive to close the deal that makes Finley track
Evans's killer with a focus she usually reserves for off-price Armani.

Just started this one but so far its pretty great! I love that it takes place in Chicago. 
They say bad things happen in threes. When her fiance, Sam, disappears on the same day her mentor and biggest client is killed, hotshot Chicago attorney Izzy McNeil starts counting. But trouble keeps coming. Sam is implicated in the client's death, her apartment is broken into and it's not just the authorities who are following her. 
Now, to find Sam and uncover her client's murderer, Izzy will have to push past limits she never imagined. Lucky for her she's always thrived under pressure, because her world is falling apart. Fast. And the trail of half truths and lies is red-hot. 

Safely outside the New York City limits, St. Thomas College was supposed to promise peace and quiet. Unfortunately, English professor Alison Bergeron has found it to be anything but. She recently divorced a fellow faculty member and more recently, her car was stolen. The one evening, she gets a visit from two homicide detectives from the NYPD. The good news is that they found Allisons beat-up Volvo; the bad news is that the body of one of the students in her Shakespeare seminar was in the trunk. 
Now, not only must Alison continue to hoof it to campus(a fate almost worse than death), she's become a prime suspect for a murder she did not commit--and her efforts to clear her name have landed her in hot water with an even hotter Detective Bobby Crawford, who happens to be a former altar boy, and the sinfully suspicious nuns of St. Thomas. All hell's about to break loose if Allison can't find the real killer...before it's too late. 

I am so glad that I joined this link-up and found some new books to read! Check out these ladies blogs and all the great books that were swapped.
