Blog Tour and Book Review: CAUGHT UP IN IT by David Burnsworth


The award-winning diva, C, has got a big problem: someone wants her dead. A team of mercenaries attempts to gun her down in Kuala Lumpur. Lucky for her, Lowcountry Private Investigator, Blu Carraway, is already on the job there for a different client.

Double-lucky for C, they make their move when she’s chit-chatting with him in a bar. Unlucky for the mercenaries, four of them end up dead.

The hunt is on now for the mega-pop star. Where does she go to hide out? The sleepy islands around Charleston, South Carolina—Blu’s backyard. He’s already proven himself once, so C hires the Blu Carraway Investigation Agency to protect her for real.
The job takes Blu halfway around the world and several cities in between. The search for the truth reveals what could drive a person to want someone else dead.

And Blu Carraway ends up right in the way.


Blu's done with his job, or so he thinks, when he takes on a new client, C, who is both tempting and in deep trouble with who knows who. It looks like the people after C may be somehow connected to previous cases and his sometimes sidekick. Blu has to call in a lot of favors, not only to protect C, but to make sure he doesn't end up dead. 

This is the third in the series, and Blu's "low country" ways continue to charm. Although there are references to the villains in the previous two novels, it can be read as a standalone - enough background is provided. Of course, it's always best to start at the beginning. There are continuous twists and turns, some humor, and the pace is fast. If you want a hard-boiled mystery for a break from cozy, you'll like this series.

FTC Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in the hopes that I would post an honest review. This has not affected the content of my review in any way.
