Release Date: July 21
If I thought Holly Woods was crazy before, I was wrong.
Devin is finally married. Nonna’s on the wedding warpath. Drake might be getting ideas. His mom just dropped a bombshell, and Bek is caught between a hot as hell FBI agent and my super-sweet little brother.
And I still don’t have the shoe closet Drake promised me when he moved in six months ago.
At least there’s one positive: the old, abandoned Holly Woods Theater is about to reopen, and there’s nothing like a theater opening to bring people together… And make crazy grandmothers forget proposal agendas.
Until that theater comes with a dead body. A very, very, very dead body.
Chaos is coming to town.
Everything I’ve ever known about Holly Woods might just be about to change.
Noelle Bond is back, but this time, Emma Hart gives readers Noelle’s “kickass softer side,” the part of her that she tries to keep hidden because she thinks it makes her weak, but I have to agree with Drake because he believes Noelle’s heart is what makes her a fantastic private investigator because her investment means that she’ll do what ever it takes to get things done and find the answers that both her client and she need in order to move forward and find some peace.
The case in Twirled Bond is not Noelle and Drake’s typical investigation. It still takes twists and turns throughout the storyline, but Noelle’s investment is much more emotional; she still follows her gut and uses her thirst for knowledge to gather the necessary information and put the clues together, but the suspense is a bit milder than the other books and the focus is more on Noelle’s attempts to juggle all aspects of her life and still keep a level head in order to help solve a very personal case.
Droelle is out in full force in Twirled Bond, and while Drake and Noelle still have their arguments and still butt heads when they work the same case, they definitely have reached a good place in their relationship. Not only do readers get to see how big Noelle’s heart is and how much she cares for her family and friends, even when she tries not to get in the middle of everything, we also get to witness the tender moments between Drake and Noelle. The times that they are simply there for each other, giving one another exactly what they need when things get too stressed and too overwhelming. Drake and Noelle may seem like an unlikely couple but they work because their personalities complement each other, balance one another out and they have what it takes to stay happy and in love because they are 100% invested in what they have.
A Holly Woods Files book isn’t complete without Nonna’s crazy antics to marry her grandchildren off in order for them to stop living in sin or Gio’s colorful greetings to everyone who enters Noelle’s parents’ house. There’s also a side story line that deals with Bek’s conflicted feelings, which is the perfect set-up for Book 6 – Burning Bond.
I absolutely love this series! The driving force of each book is Noelle and her need for answers when it comes to a case that just won’t seem to be solved. Surrounding that plot line is a great look into relationships – both familial and friendships. The Bond family absolutely has each other’s back, even though they seem to fight more than anything else, and the bonds that Noelle has formed with the people who work for her as well as Drake continue to pull me in, in each book because besides solving the case, I’m always eager to see what drama and mystery Emma Hart delivers along the way.
