Sunny Benning and her brother, Rick have worked hard to build their design company into one of the most sought after in Palm Beach, Florida and they love their work. When Rick’s partner comes up murdered in Sunny’s house, there isn’t much to prove that he didn’t kill him. Sunny has made it her mission to save her brother from being in trouble again and not even Det. Jake Chess will get in her way. From the first time she lays eyes on him, she has the hots for him, but knows that her brother’s innocence comes first.

Detective Jake Chess is on his way out to start a two weeks vacation at his mountain cabin, when he gets a call saying he’s needed on a case and it’s going to be a tough one to solve. His instinct tells him the main suspect is Rick, but he needs to follow protocol and he’s also distracted by Rick’s sister, Sunny. It becomes harder to keep his emotional feelings for her separate and he’s determined to solve his case before he can move forward with her.

Killer Designs is a great story with a thrilling twist, and I’m not sure if the designs or mystery kept me reading. It’s really interesting that the villain is able to keep his true character from those that were around him.

Sunny proved to be quite a strong woman, and there is a lot of history as to why she is that way. I really liked her take-charge personality and her ability to know when to let someone else take the lead in difficult situations.

Jake is a sexy man with a mission to keep the bad guys locked up and he seemed to know what he wanted in a woman too. One things I found odd was that he would get a little off track when he was with Sunny and they did have steaming hot sex when they should have been finding her brother, Rick.

This is a very creatively written story by Ms. Pratt, and she put a spin on the villain’s role very nicely. I really appreciated the research into the fashion design industry and the effort to distract from the real killer. I look forward to reading more from this author in the near future.
