LIVING THE VIDA LOLA by Misa Ramirez (Minotaur)

Move over, Stephanie Plum, there's a new kid on the block! Sacramento PI Lola Cruz who wanted to be an investigator since she was 14 is saucy, sassy, and competent. Unlike typical PIs though, she shares an apartment above her parents' home with her brother. Naturally, everyone in the family is involved in her life and none of them believes Lola should be a detective. Even though Lola refuses to carry a gun, she is a master (mistress) of martial arts, so she feels well able to look after herself. 

When her boss assigns her a missing person case, Lola is thrilled, and she tackles the case with enthusiasm. The case is complicated, nearly as much so as Lola's personal life. As Lola makes progress, she finds that someone is willing to harm her and her family to keep her off the case. 

Lola, her family, some of her co-workers, and her incredibly hunky high school crush are definitely folks I want to spend more time with. So will you.
