This review may contain spoilers.

The Reckless Engineer (The Reckless Engineer #1)
This book was sent to me by an author for a review. 
Author: Jac Wright
Publisher: Soul Mate Publishing
Release Date: Not set
Recommended Age: 16+

In The Reckless Engineer by Jac Wright, we travel all the way to the Portsmouth seaside as we follow the story of Jack Connor. Jack has it all. Caitlin McAllen, daughter of the wealthy McAllen family, is Jack's wife. Jack has a steady and well-paying job as an engineer, caring friends and family, two sons from a previous marriage, a daughter from Caitlin's previous relationship, and a beautiful house. Jack has it all. Told in the perspective of Jack Connor's best friend, Jeremy Stone, this story has everything-but-the-kitchen-sink. This book was filled with romance, action, mystery, and murder.

Wait, murder?

That's right. Jack Connor has allegedly murdered his mistress, Michelle Williams. Jeremy stands for Jack and hires one of the best lawyers in town to defend Jack. Jeremy has to crack this seemingly impossible case, before his best friend is convicted and sent to prison. Will Jeremy be able to pull a Sherlock Holmes and solve this deadly puzzle?

I thought that The Reckless Engineer was an okay book. I'm not really the type for murder mysteries, so this book wasn't really my area of expertise. However, I can see someone who loves mysteries to really enjoy this book. I liked the main character, Jeremy, but I couldn't help but feel somewhat in-the-middle about Jack. On one hand I felt bad for him because he's losing everything in the span of one week. However, on the other hand, I couldn't help but feel that Jack kind of deserved it. This book really played with my feelings about certain events and characters. I give this book a 3 star rating. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love love love it either.

*Warning! The Reckless Engineer is NOT a book for young children or teens. It is an ADULT book. Thank you.
