    This book was so much fun to read! I had never read any of the Lei Crime series and really wish I had! The story, while short, was able to hold my attention throughout. And the character development was spot on! The author was able to pack a lot into a small package.I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Couldn't finish, the story was just to stupid. Politician wants to get rid of his exwife who is a bank manager, his godson offers to help because he is a fixer,the fixer involves the ex-couples son as the driver of the get away vehicle when they rob the bank to get the bank manager to go on sick leave so the fixer can kill her without getting the ex-husband into the radar of police......why not just shoot her in the bank, bank robbery goes wrong ......???Oh man, why you had to make the story more complicated and more unbelievable ?

    **** "Money Makes It Deadlier" (Lei Crimes Kindle World Series) (Hidden Council Book 2) by Julie C GilbertApparently moving to Hawaii has not slowed down life for FBI agent Marcella Scott. The novella starts out with her closing an embezzlement case and moves quickly to her casing banks for a potential robbery, which inevitably occurs while she is there doing surveillance. And things move swiftly from that moment on...Although having caught two of the three individuals who were involved (one by injury and the other via a fast paced and twisting foot chase), the case is deemed closed and a success...or is it? Closed? Underlying all of this is a separate, but related, plot line involving a rich and powerful man, an ex-wife, their two kids and a whole different set of issues that he wants addressed. With Marcella's face all over the news due to the botched bank robbery that is part of the plan devised between the man and his nephew. Is she in danger? Will this all blow over? Or will she find herself in yet another fast paced situation alone again?A fast-paced and fun novella with wonderful and detailed characters and plot lines that are strong and separate and miss no detail yet intermingle toward the end. There is no cliffhanger... But it is clear things are not quite "closed" on this case. A wonderful addition to the Lei Crime Kindle World Series and a great novella by Julie C Gilbert.

    Last time we met Marcella Scott she had gotten herself into quite a predicament just before she was leaving DC to transfer to Hawaii's FBI team so that her mother would be less likely to intervene in her career. Apparently life in Hawaii has not slowed Marcella down. The novella starts out with her closing an embezzlement case and moves quickly to casing banks for a potential robbery, which occurs while she is there doing surveillance. And things move swiftly from there...Although having caught two of the three individuals who were involved (one by injury and the other via a fast paced and twisting foot chase), the case is deemed closed and a success...or is it? Closed? Underlying all of this is a separate, but related, plot line involving a rich and powerful man, an ex-wife, their two kids and a whole different set of issues that he wants addressed.

    This is a great novella, featuring an entertaining story and a wonderful character from the Lei Crime World created by Toby Neal. In this second entry in her "Defining Moments" series, Ms. Gilbert puts Marcella Scott in the forefront of the action, which is pretty much non-stop from the word "go."Amidst murder for hire, bank robberies, stake-outs and arrests, Marcella still manages to have a phone call with her mom, dinner with her partner and his family and an extended shopping spree with a gold-plated credit card. And we also get a glimpse into the lives of the victim's family and the perpetrator, all of who will never be the same after the events in "Money Makes it Deadlier." Their continuing story could actually spawn an additional novel, as their lives were very intriguing. There's a lot more going on in that family than we know.There's also a lot packed into this novella and I would highly recommend you check out this story, as well as others in the Lei Crime World series. If I hadn't, I might never have come across this author, and that would have been the true crime.**I was given a free copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review**

    One of those perfect additions to the Lei Crime Series by Toby Neal. This books is for one of my favorite characters, Marcella Scott. She's a badass FBI agent working on an undercover mission to find identity thieves and chaos ensues. If you're a follower of the series you'll know the past history of Scott and that she has an injury from a case she never discusses. The answers to that incident and how she met Marcus will be found in this quick but entertaining story. Multiple POVs give a broad narrative of the important characters and kept the pace quick. Thanks to Ms. Gilbert for my early copy so I could review.

    It's been a while since I read the first novella in Gilbert's Defining Moments series, but it doesn't matter. This stands firmly on it's own.The characters are strong and well defined and the setting is perfectly described. The action is very believable and kept me reading and wanting more. I'm looking forward to the next installment.The author kindly gifted me a copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

    This story follows Marcella, a mainland transplant FBI agent. Her. Latest case brings. Her into conflict with one of the local "godfathers" she had tried to convict on other charges earlier in her career. She must proceed extra carefully and be sure to tie all loose ends. As the mystery deepens, she faces dangers and challenges that bring her closer to solving the crimes. They also bring her closer to a fuller understanding of the island culture and herself. Great story and worthwhile read.

    What a GREAT Read! Marcella Scott FBI agent is caught in the middle of a bank robbery. It is a short story and part of the Lei Crime series. It grabs your attention from the very beginning and holds it all the way to the end. Very well written and the characters all intertwine with each other so well. I loved every minute of it and hated to see it end!

    *** A fun story with FBI agent Marcella Scott ***Murder for hire, a stake-out, and that's just the beginning of the fun. FBI agent Marcella Scott is terrific in this novella while caught up in the middle of a bank robbery. The fun doesn't end there either.Fans of Julie Gilbert's writing will enjoy MONEY MAKES IT DEADLIER, her second novella in the Lei Crime series.

    MONEY MAKES IT DEADLIER by Julie Gilbert in the LeinCrime seriesMax was a fixer, by trade, would Martin use him, to get rid of his problems,especially the one on the 10th. The policy ends in 2 months and he has no way of renewing. We meet Marcella the assignment to flush out the bank moles, they also found check forgery. A good plot, characters of Marcella and Matt were good. A good light mystery for all to enjoy. Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.
