Love is Murder by Linda Palmer

Morgan Tyler is the head writer of the soap opera Love of My Life. Her imagination is always at work, churning out the stuff that fills many a fan’s daytime with drama.
Then Damon Radford, the head of daytime programming, is found dead—and it’s revealed that, in spite of their prickly relationship, he left Morgan a fortune. Her life is beginning to look like one of her scripts, especially when the detective assigned to the case falls for her. But as the prime suspect, Morgan can’t just write herself out of this one.
Now a real-life killer is after her. And her time, like sand through the hourglass, is running out.

Headwriter of a soap opera is suspected of murdering her boss. She meets a handsome detective and a charming investigative reporter. More characters are murderd and the heroine feels that she "can take care of herself." It was fun and filled with behind the scenes information of the workings of "daytime drama."

This was such a great page turner. I was almost late for work trying to read the last 10 pages.

This was a fun book! Since I'm a soap opera fan (GH & ATWT) I really enjoyed reading about a soap opera writer. I gave it a 3 star rating only because I figured out the "killer" long before I should have been able to... and I thought parts were a little too drawn out, but all in all it was a good story.

Morgan Tyler, a young widow, write for a hit daytime soap opera. After only a few years she has become the head writer. The producer, who wasn¿t a kind man, ends up murdered. Since he¿d been after Morgan many times, and she had repeatedly turned him down, she comes under suspicion of his murder. When she finds out he left her a fortune, Morgan decides she¿d best figure out who did kill him to clear her name. Her life is beginning to look like one of the scripts she has written. Oh, and she still has scripts to write and problems to solve with the soap opera, too. To complicate matters worse, one of the detectives appears to like her, but with her being a suspect, it puts a crimp in things. Morgan does develop a great relationship with his aunt. Someone else is looking into the murder, and he becomes interested in Morgan as well. Much to the detective¿s chagrin. But, can she trust him? Is she even ready to date? Can she figure out who the real killer is without having harm come to herself? This is a fabulous book. I can¿t wait to read the next in the series. It is a funny, quick read, what is called a chick lit mystery. It is definitely a cozy as well. Ms. Palmer has done a wonderful job with the plot. There are quite a few twists and turns so that it is difficult to figure out who did it and why before it is revealed. I highly recommend this book.

I just read LOVE IS MURDER, and found it a fast, funny read. For a behind-the-scenes look at the writing and production of daytime dramas, it's terrific. For plot twists, quirky characters, and humor, it can't be beat.

You'll enjoy this 'who-dunnit' with its many interesting characters and possible murderers. Morgan Tyler, the main character, provides fascinating insight into the world of Daytime Dramas as the plot unfolds. An entertaining extra!

She married her photojournalist husband when she was nineteen and spent most of the years they had together taking incredible pictures in the wilds of Africa. When he dies in an automobile accident, Morgan Tyler returns to the United States and moves in with her best friend until she can decide what she wants to do with her life. The head writer of the soap opera Love of My Life takes her under his wing and teaches her the ropes. When he is paralyzed due to a heart attack, she becomes the show¿s news head writer........................ Damon Radord, Vice President of Daytime Programming, thinks every woman in the world loves him. Morgan constantly ducks his passes but when he is murdered she feels no joy. The two homicide detectives assigned to the case think she is a viable suspect because of all the alterations they had in front of witnesses. When a second person connected to the show is killed, Morgan decides that the only way to clear her name and stop living in fear is to find the perpetrator, only this time she comes closer to dying than she ever did before..................................... This debut chick-lit mystery is an amusing amateur sleuth tale that gives readers an insider's look at what goes on behind the scenes of a soap opera. The protagonist is a vulnerable person who attracts the attention of two sexy men and doesn¿t know how to deal with it since she never dated a lot before she married her husband. LOVE IS MURDER is a great puzzler with so many suspects who had a motive to see the victim dead that readers won¿t be able to guess who the killer is until the author chooses to reveal the perpetrator. Linda Palmer¿s first novel is a definite winner........................ Harriet Klausner
