Overview

The dating scene can be a killer...

Determined to help her roommate Nikki out of her singles slump, Abby Knight encourages her to give speed dating a try. Of course, Nikki wants the guy at the very bottom of Abby's list, Jonas Treat-a.k.a. 'Treat the Cheat'-and figures just one date with him couldn-t hurt. But then Jonas is found dead-and evidence points to Nikki as his killer.

To clear Nikki's name, Abby enlists the help of her hunky ex-Army Ranger boyfriend, Marco. But Marco's rambunctious extended family turns Abby's hectic life into a disaster zone. With her patience seriously wilting, and a killer on the loose, Abby is determined to dig herself out of this mess-before someone buries her instead...

It doesn't seem like "Evil" can be book #8...it's been such fun getting to know Abby and her friends and family (maddening as that family can be) that the books just fly by. This time it's Abby's roommate on the hot seat. Abby is determined to get Nikki back out in the dating world after a breakup, and convinces her pal to try speed-dating. Abby returns from a romantic trip with her hunky Marco to discover that against her advice, Nikki went out with one of the men and now that man is dead. Abby's not about to sit back and watch the police investigate so she and Marco join forces to cleak Nikki's name. Along with the murder, Abby's family is there to keep her on her toes. I'm ready for book #9!

Abby Knight is back for the eighth book of the series. Abby and Marco are trying to mend their relationship and decide to sneak to Key West for a weekend getaway. Abby empathizes with Nikki, her roommate, because her boyfriend just ended their relationship. To help heal Nikki's broken heart, Abby decides to attend a speed dating event with Nikki. Much to Abby's chagrin, Nikki chooses the one guy that Abby did not like. Breaking the "no contact" rule, Nikki exchanges phone numbers with Jonas Treat and agrees to go out with him, all the while keeping this a secret from Abby. When Abby returns from her weekend with Marco, Nikki gets arrested for homicide. Abby agrees to help Nikki, however Nikki repeatedly sabotages the case by not being forthcoming with Abby. Soon Abby begins to doubt Nikki's innocence and questions how well does she really know her best friend. While trying to figure out who killed Jonas, Abby is also trying to keep her weekend getaway a secret from her family, especially her mother. If her family knew about Key West, they would assume she and Marco were getting serious. . .which meant marriage. Abby is aware of her feelings for Marco, however she's not sure if she's ready for marriage. Although the killer is easy to spot, this book is a great addition to the series. While it centers around solving the murder, the reader learns more about Abby's relationship with Marco. One can't help but to wonder what the future holds for them. 4.5/5

I enjoy a series, I like getting into the character and setting and following as the story develops . I have only read this book in the series but it is so entertaining and promising I intend to read the others. The reading is fast , the plot while not too original or being a thrill a minute it is thoroughly enjoyable.
