You are endeared to Ally right away and the hero, Zack is a tough go-getter. Put the two together and the killer is going to have to work pretty hard to keep up. The characters are fun and they have immediate chemistry. If you like romantic comedies with a mystery/suspense twist then Sex and the Single Therapist by Marcia James will be a fun summer read for you!
What's not to like about a mystery - murder set in Las Vegas? The characters are so darn likeable. Zack lives in his old family home, and Ally is a sex therapist intent on solving the murder of her friend's husband. She has to clear Pam's name. These are good people caught in bad stuff. The maneuvering is fun and the sexual tension, hot. Because Ally is a sex therapist, the book also offers insights into couple's relationships, including Zack's failed marriage. The dogs qualify as minor characters because they're so cute and on point. A good, fun read.
