    Toby Neal does it again!

    Wired Hard is Book #3 in Toby Neal's Wired Series. This book features Sophie Ang and her good friend, Lei Texeira working together again. We meet some of the same characters that we got to know in the Lei Crime Series. This book is a fast read and captured my attention from the very beginning. I didn't want to put it down! Typical of Toby Neal's books, there is always just one more twist or turn in the story that keeps you on your toes. In Wired Hard, Sophie's job with Security Solutions has her working on a case involving the theft of Hawaiian artifacts from a royal burial ground on Maui. The case becomes more complicated when a body is found on the site. Sophie works along with Lei and her team to help solve the murder and find out who was involved in the looting of the site. I love seeing Sophie's character develop as she strikes out on her own, working in the private sector without the security of the FBI to back her activities. We see how Sophie struggles with the men in her life: Jake, her sexy partner from Security Solutions; Connor, her sometimes boyfriend; and her abusive ex, Assan Ang. She has not had an opportunity to date because she was married off at a very young age into what turned out to be an abusive relationship. She has been slow to get romantically involved with men while recovering from the abuse, and is still trying to figure out the dating scene and trying to find her comfort level. I love the interplay that has developed among Sophie, Lei and Marcella. Get ready for a whirlwind of a read: just when I thought I had things figured out, something else happened to turn things around! Toby Neal does it again!

    WIRED. HARD

    WIRED HARD. The 3rd in the series Paradise.Crime by Toby Neal. Sophie, part of the Security Solutions, has the boring job of watching the grounds at night. Hawaiian archeological group Hui want to restore Kakela, a place of royalty. Murder of the Hui president, on the grounds was not part of the job description. Sophie, had a 1 hour gap of no one on site, would she be fired, for not taking the job seriously. Her new love interested, comes to tell her that her ex has escaped. With the threat to kill her. The site has been vandalized, for now was a crime scene, again didn't think she had to be on the job site. Another interesting story, that gives you a touch of Hawaii. Getting to know Sophie more. Hopefully we have more in this series. Great read for all a mystery, touch of romance. Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.

    Wired ...again!

    The only thing I didn't like about this book is that it ended..... It was nice to shortly reconnect with Lei in this story, I was her fan.... until I met Sophie (in Wired In) and she became my favorite character. Sophie is as strong as she is vulnerable. She still manages to get herself into a whole lot of trouble but this is part of who she is and this is when I keep turning page after page (virtually) holding my breath, hoping she will still be in one piece at the end of it. It is very easy to relate to her fears, her doubts as well as her motivation. She is a survivor and her scars (inside and out) only add to her fascinating character. I also like the descriptive style of Toby's writing, it is detailed just enough without being boring or overwhelming. I've never been to Hawaii yet the place feels familiar with each of her books, so much that I would consider moving there if I could. Sophie's partner Jake has a strong and likable presence and he is also sort of her guardian angel. I hope the next book brings more of Connor as well. He is always there at the right time, but only for a short while. I kind of miss the enigma around him from prior books. I have his blond-hair-blue-eyes-great-smile image when he is part of the story but his multiple skills need to be brought back to complement Sophie's, they are a perfect match and I hope Toby will keep them together. Nevertheless, what I like the most about Toby's writing is that she always makes her characters so real. I honestly expect to bump into Sophie or Lei or Marcella if I ever visit Hawaii. I can hardly wait for the book #4!
