    fast paced thriller

    "A Date You Can't Refuse" is the latest in the misadventures of Wollie Shelley, the greeting card artist. This time she accepts a job at MediasRex, a media training company, not by choice but by the persistence of the FBI. But also pays well, and she needs the cash. Harley Jane Kozak creates such amusing characters and the story makes you wonder what is going to happen next. Will Wollie survive these foreign clients that she is paid to teach and also keep in line? Will she ever hook up with her boyfriend? And what is up with the owner of MediasRex? The book is a fast paced thriller that makes me yearn for the next book.

    an amusing zany investigative thriller

    The FBI assigns greeting card graphic artist and tyro espionage agent Wollie Shelley undercover work at MediasRex, a California media training company. MediasRex owner Yuri Milos hires Wollie to teach etiquette to their socially-impaired clients and as needed fill in at dates at public functions.

    Wollie's boyfriend FBI agent Simon Alexander is upset with her assignment although the pay is great; not that he wants to be the social trainee to miscreants even for $50,000 for three months of training. However, he knows Yuri has deadly connections to Eastern European politicians and mobsters. Inside the firm's Calabasas, California headquarters, Wollie finds out her predecessor died in a car accident that the late predecessor's boyfriend claims was a homicide.

    The latest Wollie's woes (see DEADLY EX, DATING IS MURDER and DATING DEAD MEN) is an amusing zany investigative thriller as the heroine gets in trouble in her personal and professional lives. The story line has a humorous undertone but Simon is simply right with the amount of danger engulfing Wollie as Yuri's secrets re his East Europe community connections could prove fatal. Once again Harley Jane Kozak provides a lighthearted romp inside a potential deadly scenario starring a former serial dater on her first knockout date arguing over who drives.
