I've liked most of what I've read of Rachel Gibson, and this has a fun and interesting premise. Unfortunately, it takes some give-me-a-break plotting to make it work. When you discover the man is an undercover cop who has been dating you because you're a prime suspect, if you're a reasonable person, you understand that the lies he told were in the line of duty and that, in his shoes, you'd make the same choices. And I expect my heroines to react like reasonable people. Yes, that sometimes makes plotting more challenging, but that's life.

I could almost overlook that flaw. What I can't overlook was when the heroine has an extreme attack of stupid and goes alone to meet a woman she only knows in passing when there's a female serial killer who has threatened to make her the next victim. This genre isn't overly critical or overly demanding, but I still expect better sense from the heroine and better plotting from an author.

At this point anything that Rachel Gibson writes, I buy! She is hilarious, the characters are interesting and the plots are fairly realistic. I am so sick of the historical "damsel in distress" crap and she writes very good contemporary stories.

Another winner! R.G. is one of my absolute favorite writers. She really knows how to keep you turning the pages. I couldn't put this one down anymore than any of her other books. I was so behind at work because I kept taking breaks to sneak in a little reading time. Defintely a great read.

Mystery writer Lucy Rothschild is working on her next book which includes a serial killer who is meeting her victims through online dating. For research, Lucy is also seeing various men who she meets online. After a series of duds, Lucy meets Quinn McIntyre who is different from the others. He is friendly, smart, and hot. But what Lucy doesn't know is Quinn is actually an undercover cop hunting for a serial killer who meets her victims online. He has met with several women while trying to discover the killer. But after meeting Lucy, she is Quinn's top suspect.

This is the first book in Rachel Gibson's Writer Friends series. It is a romantic comedy with a little bit of suspense thrown in. It's a fast-paced story with a lot of humor. I loved when Lucy would meet with her friends who are all writers. Their conversations were hilarious. I enjoyed this story, even though Lucy had a TSTL moment near the end. My rating: 4 Stars.

This is part of a four book series about four writers/friends of different genres. The story of each author reflects the genre they write in. I thought this was a cool concept. I've read three out of the four books and Lucy's story is much smoother than Clare's story. This is a fun, quick read.

Lucy is a mystery writer so her story is a mystery with lots of romance thrown in. I love it when Lucy lectures on what makes a great mystery and of course all the gimmicks she speaks about is in this book.

It was a cute book. If you've never read Gibson, light fluffy fun read is a great way to describe her books.

Cute chick lit. Lucy is a mystery writer using online dating sites to meet men for research regarding her next book. Quinn is an undercover cop that is afraid she may be the serial killer terrorizing town. Quick, easy read. 4 stars
