Against the Odds (Anna Dawson Book 1) Mara Jacobs Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Mara Jacobs comes Book 1 in the Anna Dawson mystery series.
My name is Anna Dawson, and I'm a gambler.
And like any gambler will tell you, sometimes that’s good, and sometimes...not so much. And sometimes it’s an outright problem.
I love Vegas, and I love the life I've built, but when one of my friends is murdered, and another one shot at, I know I need to take a serious look at myself. And I need to call in the big guns. Even if that means teaming up with Detective Jack Schiller, a man battling his own demons.
Right now I'm just trying to juggle protecting my friends, helping Jack while not letting him get too close, and finding a murderer. And oh yeah, no one can learn about my gambling.
Or this will be the last hand I'm dealt.
*NOTE: The case is solved, the perpetrator caught, but there are a few threads that are continuing on through the next book and the series.

...make this such an entertaining read. An interesting plot adds to the entertainment. Thoroughly enjoyed this book.
Good character development. You really ended up caring about these people. And suspenseful enough that you had to keep reading
I loved the characters and how they interacted. Just when I thought I'd figured things out another twist in the plot would pop up and surprise me! I'll be reading the entire Anna Dawson series!!
