Overview

In Sherryl Woods’ Hot Money, the third book in the Molly DeWitt Romantic Mystery Series, Molly DeWitt and detective Michael O’Hara are back to investigate a murder at the “Save the Environment” black-tie fundraiser. Molly and Michael are only in attendance at the posh event because of the insistence of Molly’s friend, Liza, who was one of the organizers. But when Molly and Michael sneak away from the party to sit quietly on the dock for a while, they discover the body of Tessa Lafferty, a wealthy socialite, floating in the water. Before her death, Tessa was the chairwoman and head organizer of the extravagant affair, and now it is up to Molly and Michael to discover her killer.

As the two investigate the mystery further, they discover that Tessa was not the kind-hearted philanthropist she appeared to be…and any one of her former—and current—lovers could be the killer. It’s a mystery that only Michael and Molly can solve as they also continue to explore the possibilities of their own relationship.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
There is little suspense and even less action in this talky murder mystery. The third in a series, it offers scanty background information about protagonists Molly DeWitt and Detective Michael O'Hara (readers may thus be confused by references to events that took place in earlier volumes). Molly and Michael attend a glitzy environmental fund-raiser at the insistence of her friend Liza, who has helped organize the event. When the two sneak away from the party to dangle their feet off a dock, they discover the dead body of Tessa Lafferty--the wealthy socialite chairing the event--bobbing in the water. As they investigate, they discover that Tessa was not too discriminating about her sexual partners and, appearances to the contrary, not very politically correct. This story and a subplot about a possible custody battle between Molly and her ex-husband are revealed through dialogue that reads like the bare bones of a screenplay. Nor does Woods ( Hot Secret ) factor personalities into the narrative. Tessa's wealthy friends are indistinguishable from one another, and the romantic relationship between Michael and Molly seems artificially immobilized from being consummated. (Aug.)
