What do a smokin’ hot detective, an evil chiropractor, and a couple of blind dates from hell have in common? Lizzie has to wrangle them all in the third book of THE LIZZIE HART MYSTERIES series!

Lizzie Hart is overjoyed that six whole months have passed without a single murder in the sleepy town of Liberty. It’s also been six months since Blake Morgan heartlessly dumped her, but she’s determined to get over him. She’s slimmed down, ready to party, and injury-free, except for a little nagging pain in her ankle. She’s also very single, but her friends are doing everything in their power to fix that—including setting her up on one disastrous blind date after another.

Lizzie’s reprieve is short-lived when an old friend of hers is found dead from an apparent drug overdose. She wants to write it off as bad behavior after having seen the guy cheating on his wife with the new chiropractor in town. However, when she sees that same chiropractor playing doctor with another man who ends up dead, she worries there could be murder afoot.

Doing her best to stay on the right side of the law this time, Lizzie decides to go straight to the police with her suspicions. Unfortunately, the only cop available to speak with her is the stern yet hot new detective who has already given her a traffic ticket and a reprimand for public intoxication. Not surprisingly, he brushes her off, leaving her no choice but to begin snooping on her own. Lizzie soon learns she’s going to need help to get to the bottom of this mystery, but her best partner in crime solving, Blake, has turned into her worst enemy.

Can Lizzie and Blake find a way to work together to catch the killer…or will they kill each other first?


Review: Bad Medicine is by far my favorite book in the Lizzie Hart Mysteries series. Who doesn’t love a good mystery that involves an incredibly sexy cop?

Lizzie doesn’t want anything to do with the case after her schoolmate, Jason Harris, is found dead in his home. The police do not suspect foul play but Jason’s wife, Kim, and Lizzie’s best friend, Janet, both think that Jason was murdered. Janet guilt trips Lizzie into investigating. As if that isn’t enough, Lizzie and Blake Morgan, her ex, have been fighting for the past 6 months since their nasty break up. Lizzie and Blake must work together in order to figure out who the murderer is despite the tension between them. Now, on to the sexy cop. I’m so glad Fardig through another man into the mix. Brody Callahan definitely spices things up in Lizzie’s life. However, Blake is not too happy about Lizzie’s new love interest.

Fardig is amazing at creating lovable characters and suspense filled events. The events are very well put together and everything falls into place. I cannot wait until another Lizzie Hart Mystery is released. Fardig was a “new to me” author before reviewing the first 3 books in this series. I have definitely found a new author to love! I highly recommend Bad Medicine and the other Lizzie Hart Mysteries to readers.
