Patients at a posh Boca Raton rehab center are ending up stiffer than a Boca babe’s smile. Tough PI Harriet Horowitz, once a bedazzled babe herself, signs in at The Oasis at the request of a frightened friend.
As a pattern emerges in the murders, it’s clear the killer is targeting patients with an unusual addiction. How did they end up with the same drug problem at the same time and in the same rehab together? Harriet’s sleuthing leads her down a path of secrets and danger, and what she learns could lead her undercover assignment to a dead end.
Miriam Auerbach is the author of a satirical mystery series set in Boca Raton, Florida and featuring Harley-riding, wisecracking female private eye Harriet Horowitz. Her debut novel, Dirty Harriet, won the Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award for Best First Series Romance. Miriam can only assume that this is because the heroine kills her husband on page one. In a parallel universe, Miriam is known as Miriam Potocky, professor of social work at Florida International University in Miami. She lives in South Florida with her husband and their multicultural canines, a Welsh Corgi and a Brussels Griffon.

My review: Boca Undercover by Miriam Auerbach
Boca Undercover is fourth book in The Dirty Harriet Mystery Series. It is the first book that I have read though. It does stand alone okay, but I think it would have been better to read the first three books in the series.
PI Harriet Horowitz is the main character. She is a widow who was abused wife till she fought back one time. She has turned her life around. She talks and listens to alligators. Rides a Harley and air boat. Harriet has a inner vigilante.
There is some good advice in the counseling Harriet gets while going undercover at high end rehab center. Harriet gets a call from a old friend who is getting help for her drug use. Harriet agrees to go out and visit her when they find another dead body at the rehab backyard. Her undercover name is Hailey Holloway.
The mystery had some good twists that I did not see coming but some might looking back I saw the clues I missed.
The setting is Boca Raton, FL. Most of it was at a Posh rehab center.
I would read more books in this series. I would like to see where the characters go next.
I was given this ebook to read so that I could give a honest review of Boca Undercover and be part of it's blog tour.
