Book Review: Dying for a Date, by Cindy Sample
Laurel McKay isn't exactly what many men consider an ideal date. She's divorced, the mother of two kids, and her dates keep showing up dead. When she is, quite naturally, considered to be the only suspect in the two cases that otherwise seem to have no connection, Laurel decides that she is her own best shot at proving her innocence by solving the murders herself.
Dying for a Date had me literally laughing out loud and guessing at the murderer, then changing my guess, then changing it again throughout the whole book. Although I thought the pacing dragged a bit through the middle of the story, it picked right up again toward the very exciting--and hilarious--conclusion. I found the characters charmingly approachable, the kind of people I would like to get to know better. I can't wait to read Sample's next book, Dying for a Dance.
