For Sue Finley, plotting to kill
someone is all in a day’s work. The talented mystery author
knows all about threats, stalking, murder, and mayhem. What
she can’t figure out is men, or more specifically one man –
Jason Dodd. Four months ago, Jason gave Sue the best kiss
of her life and then never called her. But when someone
starts sending Sue threats straight out of her own novels,
the man who never called suddenly appears in her life once
Emotionally scarred from a childhood
filled with disappointment and abandonment, Detective Jason
Dodd is determined never to chance heartbreak by needing
someone. After kissing Sue, Jason knew she was a risk he
could never afford to take. Then a stalker threatens Sue
and the tables turn. Sue needs him.
As danger draws them to each other, it
becomes impossible for Jason and Sue to resist their
attraction to one another. But will Jason be able to
overcome his past and open his heart to Sue? And will the
two be able to put all the pieces of the puzzle together
before the mystery of Sue’s stalker takes a deadly turn?
Christie Craig has done it again!
Divorced, Desperate and Dating is – hands down –
the best book I’ve read since Weddings Can Be Murder
(coincidentally, also by Ms. Craig). It’s an enchanting
combination of humor, tenderness, seduction, and romance
with a dash of danger and a cast of quirky characters that
make this book shine.
What is so delightful about
Divorced, Desperate and Dating is that every
character, from Jason and Sue on down, left their mark on my
heart. Ms. Craig has a gift for bringing characters to
life, and the warmth, friendliness, and oddities of each
person in the story made me wish I could be in the book with
them. Sue charmed me from the first. She’s intelligent,
likeable, and, despite a run of bad luck (not the least of
which is her cross-dressing ex-husband), Sue is still
willing to open her heart, even if it takes some meltingly
sexy kisses from Jason and a few therapy sessions with her
ficus plant to get her there. As for Jason, he made me want
to see Sue break through his barriers. The emotional damage
from his past broke my heart, and I wanted nothing more than
for him to see his true worth. His protective and caring
nature endeared him to me as did his sex appeal, I must
Divorced, Desperate and Dating
is loosely connected to Divorced, Desperate and Delicious.
Having not yet read Divorced, Desperate and Delicious,
I can safely say that Divorced, Desperate and Dating
stands on its own. However, as Lacy and Chase are Sue and
Jason’s best friends, fans of the previous story will
delight in seeing them again. I adored Chase and Lacy in
this book and I can honestly say I was online ordering
Divorced, Desperate and Delicious before I even finished
Jason and Sue’s story.
Divorced, Desperate and Dating
had me laughing, smiling, and calling friends to read them
passages of the book. To my delight, after finishing
Divorced, Desperate and Dating I looked on Ms.
Craig’s website and discovered a bonus epilogue for the
story, where, if possible, I fell for Jason and Sue even
harder as I read about their first Christmas together. Ms.
Craig is now on my list of autobuy authors for her truly
remarkable ability to create phenomenal stories and
vivacious characters that capture my attention from the
first page to the last, and continue to do so long after I
have read, re-read, and then re-read the book again a few
dozen more times. Joyfully Recommended!
