The Less You Know by Jenny Ashley




Release Date:
October 2011

Cecelia Parkinson is a bail bondswoman. When one of her clients disappears, she has to leave the country to re-apprehend him. She cannot fail or she’ll lost her home, since she mortgaged it for this guy.

She’s stunned when an unwelcome acquaintance from her past shows up to help in her search. Robert Lewis isn’t going away and sticks by Cecelia’s side against her wishes. Cecelia has to keep her head together around the sexy guy, but she ends up in the middle of her clients’ drug dealings and finds she needs all the help she can get.

This is a fast-paced adventure that I wish was longer. By the end of the book, I found myself wanting more (this is a good thing!) The characters were well-developed, interesting and the plot was a roller coaster of action, mystery and romance all jumbled together in one exciting story.

I’m looking forward to reading more stories by this new-to-me author.

FTC Disclosure: The author provided me with a copy of this book to review. This did not influence my thoughts and opinions in any way. All opinions expressed are my own.


  1. Sounds like a good one Yvonne, and that cover is haunting.

  2. Hi Yvonne,
    This is an aspiring author that I am sure we shall hear more from, I love the sound of this book.

    I am just starting to get into reading cozy mysteries by US authors, as their writing style and what constitutes a cozy mystery, is quite different from that of their UK counterparts, and does take a little getting used to.

    I have also only recently discovered 'Smashwords' and thought that it was a great site. An author had gifted me a book from the site for review and I went in to post a copy of the review when I was done with it. I discovered that many of the authors who had gifted me books through Amazon, had also published their books on Smashwords, so I was a little disappointed that I was unable to post a review for the author on Smashwords as well as Amazon. Smashwords policy is that you can only post a review on their site if you have purchased the book from them.

    I didn't think that this was very advantageous for an aspiring author, trying to get their work noticed in as many places as possible .... but hey!

    Have a great week.

  3. Looks creepy, and sounds good. Always a good combo
