Web of Lies by Jennifer Estep

Gin Blanco has retired from being the Spider. She is now tending and cooking for her restaurant, The Pork Pit and waits for detective Donovan to make up his mind about being honest to his heart’s desire or his moral beliefs. But life isn’t that kind to her and she manages to cross two of the most dangerous people in Ashland as she tries to defend her restaurant and her customers.The second book in the Elemental Assassin series is far better than the first one. The story is better and the ending is…let’s say predictable and unexpected at the same time.

Gin has retired. She’s no longer the Spider, she’s just a chef and a restaurant owner in Ashland. But two guys try to rob her one night and one of them is the son of Jonah McAllister, Mab Monroe’s personal lawyer and one of the most powerful and corrupt people in Ashland. So she crosses his path first when she presses charges against his son, second when she kills him. Let the games begin.

The main plot thought revolves around Violet Fox and her grandfather. A mining tycoon is trying to persuade them to sell their lands, and he’s neither scared nor subtle about it. After Violet is attacked in her joint, Gin feels the feud is personal and gets involved. The investigation takes her far and wide, deeper into her own secrets.

Detective Cain remains as always torn between moral and desire and he punishes himself and Gin for his feelings. But Gin has a new admirer, who knows who she is, what she’s done and accepts her for herself. What’s a girl to do? Stay patient and wait for a man who’s clearly unable to make a decision, or accept the kind and flattering advances of Owen Greyson, whose history with Gin goes even further than she knows?

The book is also available in audio format on audible.com and I highly recommend it.

I give the book a 4.3 out of 5. Enjoy!
