"Christie Craig is a must-read." -- New York Times Bestselling author Nina Bangs

Sue Finley murdered people...on paper. As a mystery writer, she knew all the angles, who did what and why. The only thing she couldn't explain was...well, men. Dating was like diving into a box of chocolates: sometimes the sweetest-looking specimens were candy-coated poison. After a breakup with a bank robber and a divorce from a cross-dresser, she gave it up for good. Then came Detective Jason Dodd.

Raised in foster homes, Jason swore never to need anyone as much as the parents who'd abandoned him. That was why he failed to follow up after experiencing the best kiss of his life: real passion was addictive. But when Sue Finley started getting death threats, all bets were off. The blonde spitfire was everything he'd ever wanted -- and she needed him. And though this novel situation had a quirky cast of characters and an unquestionable bad guy, he was going to make sure it had a happy ending.

The first one I read wad "Weddings can be Murder" and I really liked the way she wrote so I bought this one for my Nook. I laughed aloud alot. Very enjoyable book. If I did not read the Free Book Friday book I would not have known how good of a writer she is. I will deffinetly read the rest of her books.

Personally, I'm not into the sex parts. Skipping over that, I really enjoyed this book.

Lots of laughter throughout; fun and quick read; too much sex put in, and grab two tissues!

Wow!!! Ms Craig really had it going on here. Jason and Sue were fun. I laughed a lot and she kept me guessing about the stalker too. This was a ton of fun. Highly recomended. You will enjoy it.

Like the first book, Divorced, Desperate and Delicous....This one is Sue, Lacy's friend. I loved how the books carry on with the 3 friends. Another totally funny, with crazy charactors. So much seems real to me, which is rather scary...but also such a loving bunch. Each girl is a horn dog, scared of relationships because she picked the wrong ones first. Lots of women can relate. The love of animals is a continued trait of this book. I love the way Christie Craig writes. It sounds alot like my family. I loved when Grandpa told Sue that her Grandma needed help with the hole in the back of her head. Everyone knows you always have hair in the back of your head that is a "hole". My mother says this always. Which lead all of us to say it. I never knew Texas was so much like Alabama and Tennessee in their sayings. Could totally relate to this book. Of course it is a "romance" novel, so the heroine is totally beautiful and has a quirky job that she does from home, and the hero is super hunky, drop dead hotter than hot that only wants to please his woman if she will only let him.....What a patient man Jason was. Total dream of a man. hmmmmmm....perfect love, lots of humor, love of animals, loving family, a hoot to read. totally recmd!

I'm more then half way thru story it's good but way too long dragging out!! Couple chapters talking about their sex tension , then 1 chapter about someone trying to kill her or stalking ....really,? I know they both have issues but wow! Maybe when I finish the book , hopefully I can come back and make a more positive review. I will finish it's just taking longer then normal because I have to put it down and come back much later with a clear thought , and don't get bored with the story. Until then I'll run couple errands & start reading again?!
