THE MONEY MAN is the first book in THE CONSULTANTS series, and I can’t wait for more. There is a depth to the story with so many layers that had me turning the pages far into the night to see what would happen next. And the characters aren’t perfect, which made them seem real.
There is an instant attraction between Derek and Alice when they first discuss her accounting problem. But what could a business mogul in a high-powered international consulting firm have in common with a small town bookkeeper? Numbers!
Alice starts out mousy but holds her own against Derek and his business associates. The story twists and turns but moves forward at the right pace. We get to know the characters and their issues a little at a time.
The story has both funny moments and deeper emotional ones. Filled with family, business, and a blossoming romance that heats up in the bedroom, THE MONEY MAN is well worth the read.
The romantic epilogue that takes places six months later is the icing on the cake. I just wish it went a little farther than it did. I can only hope that we pick up where this book ends when the next book, THE HACKER, is issued. I’m so glad Derek’s business partners will have their stories told too!
