Heart Break: An Isabel Swift Novel (Isabel Swift Series Book 1) by MF Moskwik
Overall star rating --- 4
About the book:
Isabel Swift is a savvy, down-to-earth, female police officer who protects the citizens of Westchester County and wants to become a detective. From a broken home, her brothers and sisters in blue are her family, and she is shaken by the recent, unexpected death of her mentor, Ben Carter, from what everyone thinks was a heart attack. On her first day back from leave, she is paired with an arrogant forensic data scientist, Mark Jameson, who is more interested in analyzing data than solving the crime of stolen technology to which they are assigned.
When their investigation uncovers an unexpected link between the theft and her mentor’s death, Swift and Jameson have only 48 hours to whittle down a countywide list of suspects, track down the stolen technology, and solve the mystery of Ben Carter’s death. Can Isabel overcome her grief and her differences with her new partner to solve the case and earn her detective’s badge?

The review --
This story is a murder mystery with a few twists and turns to make things intriguing. The storyline and characters were well developed. In most instances, I could clearly visualize the settings and characters. There were a few moments when the characters were not described at all, so it was left to my opinion on how they would look. The editing needs to be relooked at, as some of the words were wrong for the sentence or just misspelled.
