She explained the trouble with Valentine's Day (as if you didn't know!) Now Rachel Gibson tells all about . . .
Sex . . .
What is it about men anyway? Bad cars, bad jobs, even bad teeth--nothing convinces them that they can't snare a Size Two Babe with a D-cup chest. And after way too many internet dates with men named "luvstick" and "bigdaddy182," Lucy Rothschild should know.
Lies . . .
But sitting across from her now is "hardluvnman," and he seems different--sensitive, honest, and hot! He says he's a plumber, while Lucy claims she's a nurse! She's really a mystery writer, dating online while researching her next book. Hey, everyone lies a little, don't they?
And Online Dating . . .
But Quinn's really an undercover cop hunting down a serial killer, and he sees Lucy as his top suspect. And while he could really go for this smart, sexy woman with the killer bod--if that's the only thing "killer" about her--he knows he needs to wine and dine her and discover the truth. Hey, he realizes the dating scene can be deadly--but this is ridiculous!
What's a homicide detective to do when tracking down a female serial killer who targets her victims via online dating sites? In Gibson's breezy, formulaic new romance set in Boise, Idaho, said detective--handsome Quinn McIntyre--logs online and goes out on numerous first dates until he pinpoints the woman wacko enough to have committed the crimes. So begins the relationship between Quinn and Lucy Rothschild, a well-educated, 30-something professional who fits the killer's profile. Quinn isn't the only one with an agenda, however. Lucy, a mystery writer, is doing research for her next novel, which coincidentally features a female serial killer and Internet dating. Mutual lust impedes both Quinn and Lucy's plans, and miscommunication and the real serial killer serve as speed bumps on their path to love. While Gibson's fast-paced romp is mildly entertaining, her flimsy plot doesn't hold up to scrutiny, and her protagonists--the capable detective who's married to his work and the smart female who's been burned by a parade of Mr. Wrongs--never grow beyond their prescribed roles.

1 . Loved it!!
Posted June 30, 2009 by Michelle , PowellI personally loved this book so much. I have read this book multiple times. The book caught my interest and held it for the rest of the book. The characters were funny at times and yet extremely realistic. I thought it had the perfect blend of romance with just a hint of murder mystery.
