Lola Vega is a young attorney-turned-private eye. All she has left of the legal life is hanging in her closet, and that's the way she likes it. But now it's time to pay the rent or move back in with Mama, and she only has twelve dollars to her name...in bitcoin. Just in time, she's hired to investigate movie star Jack Stone's apparent suicide for signs of murder. Jack was Lola Vega is a young attorney-turned-private eye.

When the ex who hired Lola turns up dead, her pal/nemesis gets involved, daring LAPD homicide cop Michael Escobar. And he's after Lola in more ways than one. But while the map of Jack's private world takes Lola through more twists than the Hollywood Hills, it also leads to professional killers, and brings both danger and Michael closer than ever.

    I picked this up based on a recommendation, and thought it was fantastic. Lots of great humor and characters here, as well as general quirkiness. The book is about serious topics but doesn’t take itself seriously, and as a result it’s a rollicking fun read. I really like this author’s writing, she’s introduced just the right balance of mystery and humor and great characters to keep me turning the Kindle pages. I finished after 3 sittings, which is pretty rare for me. Being a guy, I was a little I picked this up based on a recommendation, and thought it was fantastic.

Being a guy, I was a little skeptical at first, thinking that this might be more geared to female readers--and I’ve never read Stephanie Plum. But turned out not to matter a bit. I’m guessing anyone who likes their mysteries sprinkled with humor and oddness will love this book, regardless of gender. Highly recommended.

    This mystery moves fast and provides a good time for the reader by offering up frequent bursts of humor. It takes place mostly in San Diego, which is a rare setting for novels of any time, though parts of it are set in Los Angeles, too. I don't read many mysteries, so this was a fun romp through new territory. I trust you will find it enjoyable, too!

    I chose this book when I read that it would be interesting to fans of Stephanie Plum or Izzy Spellman.

Well Izzy is one of my favorite PI's, and Stephanie is always fun, so I decided to give it a try. Boy am I glad I did! This book took me on a wild adventure with Lola Vega, an attorney turned PI in the LA area. At the brink of running out of money, she is hired to prove a suicide of a famous actor was really a murder. What would have been an interesting job on it's own is further complicated when the woman who hired her (and the 3rd wife of the suicide/murder victim) is murdered and found by Lola. Now she has to find two murderers! Fortunately she has a detective friend in the LAPD, and many leads. What follows is a detective story that is terrifying, funny, and puzzling. The Russian Mafia, Mexican dog racing, gambling, hidden evidence, an exploding boat, road trips, and a physic who has genuine connections with the other side all combine for a great story that is hard to stop reading! It doesn't hurt that there is a little romance thrown in along the way. The characters are interesting and well developed. The plot flowed well and was filled with details that were developed further along in the book. All in all it was a delightful book to read and I was sorry when it was over. I am hoping the author is writing another book about Lola's PI adventures! I definitely want to read more!

As a bonus, her employer would like her to find Stone’s missing will. Lola hardly starts her investigation until her employer also turns up dead. With the help of Stone’s psychic guide and drop dead gorgeous police Detective Michael Escobar, Lola turns Los Angeles upside down in search of the killers. Her activity draws the attention of professional killers and, yes…wait for it, circus performers. Written with a touch of humor, a dash of romance, and a healthy dose of mystery, The Last Four Digits by Julie Leo is filled with interesting twists and amusing turns that keep the main characters on the verge of danger. I like the fact Lola Vega is a lovely, intelligent woman with a lot of career options, but she chooses private detective as her career of choice, not because it will make her rich or because she isn’t qualified to do anything else, but because of the adventure aspect of the job. I adored Molly, the quirky psychic who can eat like teenage boy during a growth spurt when she is nervous and tends to go with the flow no matter what is happening around her. Julie Leo does a remarkably professional job of writing dynamic characters and creative plot points. Her dialogue is believable and highly entertaining. The situations the characters get into border on unrealistic at times but are still entertaining. I enjoyed the story from beginning to end, and I look forward to reading more from this talented writer. Reviewed for Readers' Favorite.

    The Last Four Digits by Julie Leo is an action packed mystery. Lola Vega, an ex-attorney turned detective, is investigating the suspicious suicide of actor Jack Stone. Lola has her work cut out for her because Stone has a lot of ex-wives to talk to and a missing will. Lola teams up with physic Molly O’Reilly and attempts to solve Stone’s death all the while avoiding the mafia and her attraction to Detective Michael Escobar. Julie Leo did a good job on this book.

Lola teams up with physic Molly O’Reilly and attempts to solve Stone’s death all the while avoiding the mafia and her attraction to Detective Michael Escobar. Julie Leo did a good job on this book. In The Last Four Digits there is something for everyone. There are guns, romance, explosions and murder. There also is more than one mystery to solve in this story. I honestly was not able to solve any of them. The ending was a huge shock to me and there was no way that I would have been able to figure it out beforehand. Lola Vega is a likeable character that I would like to see more of in the future. She is smart, fashionable and is always getting into trouble. However my favorite character in the book was Molly. She was funny and very unpredictable. I thought her no parking sign was hilarious. Molly and Lola worked great together. I enjoyed reading this book and hope to read more of Lola’s adventures in the future. I believe that this book is the first in the Lola Vega series. At times it reads as if there was another book in the series but I was not able to find it. If you like to read action packed murder mysteries then this book is for you. *I reviewed this book for Readers’ Favorite

    Suicide or Murder? Who or what killed the movie star, Jack Stone? That's what Lola Vega is trying to figure out in hopes of getting a generous settlement to make this month's rent. But this case may not be so easy to crack because, to add another strange twist, it seems Jack Stone may have been involved in the practices of séances and witchcraft. It would seem that he's been trying to find his sister's killer. Fascinating. At first, it would appear that Lola is just another amateur sleuth, but sh Suicide or Murder? Who or what killed the movie star, Jack Stone? That's what Lola Vega is trying to figure out in hopes of getting a generous settlement to make this month's rent. But this case may not be so easy to crack because, to add another strange twist, it seems Jack Stone may have been involved in the practices of séances and witchcraft. It would seem that he's been trying to find his sister's killer. Fascinating. At first, it would appear that Lola is just another amateur sleuth, but she is actually a bright and tenacious little cookie. Even when it seems that the person who hired her may have written her a bad check and someone might want her dead, she still keeps herself on the case, going through great lengths and even greater distances (Mexico, for god sakes!) We definitely need more stories of smart, brave Latinas. But what was the significance behind those last four digits--those four random numbers? That was a head-scratcher. Why were the bodies suddenly piling up? Was Lola being charged with murder? What the heck did the circus have to do with any of this? And, more importantly, who was behind all this? Gripping and engaging, this is a mystery that keeps on getting better and better. Just when you think you have it figured out, a new clue pops up. Inching closer and closer to the truth, you just have to see how it all ends.
