This is the first book i have ever read by Melissa Senate and i found this book at a small book store where i live when it was going out of business and had everything 40% off. Nice way to buy books although unfortunate the store was closing. I was drawn first to the cover and then read the black cover blurb and decided i was interested enough to buy it. It's only 297 pages so not terribly long and it was actually a quick read. I read it in one evening or about 4 hours. It's considered chick lit and i have only read a handful of these types of books and i really enjoyed this one. Below is the back cover blurb i spoke about above.
Abby's worst ex-boyfriends are on someones hit list. Friends, family, coworkers–and a hot Portland police detective–think that someone is Abby herself!
WHEN DID ABBY FOOTE'S LIFE BECOME AN EPISODE OF LAW & ORDER?
First, a former boyfriend (who dumped Abby in the most humiliating way imaginable) is found murdered the day his engagement is announced.
Then two other ex-boyfriends report attempts made on their lives right after breaking up with her. Coincidence? Detective Benjamin Orr, of the Portland Police Department (and Very Probing Questions and Incredibly Delicious Face), doesn't think so. Neither do Abby's friends, family, coworkers and other exes–who are suddenly shaking in their shoes.
Soon enough, everyone is sucking up to her as though the Abby they know and supposedly love to death is capable of poisoning their drinks….
Is someone trying to frame her? Who? And why? She has to find out fast. Because by-the-book Ben is bound to break her heart. Which makes him next on someone's list.
Sounds pretty interesting eh? I thought it did and it really was a good book. always something happening. I thought it could use a little more definition maybe but not much. If your looking for any kind of sexual relationship in this book you'll be disappointed. Will Ben and Abby get together by the end of this book? You'll have to read it to see.
Melissa has a follow up to this book that was recently published called. The Secret of Joy! It features one of her friends from Love you to Death. I haven't read it yet but i plan too. I give Love you to Death 4 Modokker stars!
