Sex, Lies and Online Dating
3.5 Stars

While conducting research for her latest mystery novel, Lucy Rothschild becomes the prime suspect in a series of murders. Quinn McIntyre, the homicide detective assigned to the investigation, finds himself attracted to Lucy despite her lies and his suspicions.

Despite the indications in the blurb, Sex, Lies and Online Dating leans more toward contemporary romance than romantic suspense. The premise of a female serial killer targeting men she meets on the Internet has potential, but is ultimately underdeveloped with a limited suspect pool, insufficient clues and a less than comprehensible motive.

Another thing that does stand out, and not in a good way, is the excessive use of brands such as BMW, Ralph Lauren and Starbucks not to mention the abundance of references to popular culture like Maroon 5 and Cold Case Files. This adds little to the setting or atmosphere and actually dates the book unnecessarily.

Nevertheless, Lucy and Quinn’s romance is engaging and they have great chemistry. The build up of their relationship and the conflicts that inevitably arise make this a worthwhile read.

The secondary cast is comprised of Lucy’s quirky writer friends who are interesting enough to continue with the series. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060772913, Mass Market Paperback)

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!
