She's Gotta Be Mine

Sorry's winner is another "chick" book. Although it does have a mystery element I admit it also does have romance. However, since the romance is well sprinkled with sex (and this author's 'day job' is writing erotic romance, so she knows her stuff) you might still enjoy it.

Jennifer Skully/Jasmine Hayes hit another one out of the park with this one. She's Gotta Be Mine was a very fun read. Most reviews I've seen give it a middle-of-the-road review for just being "entertaining" but I would have to give it a star higher for being so well-written. (It has a four-star rating on Amazon, and a four-and-a-half on Goodreads, which means it had to have an awful lot of five stars in the mix).

The Amazon description is way too short in my opinion:

Dumped? For her husband’s high school sweetheart he hasn’t seen in twenty years? Roberta Jones Spivey isn’t going to lay down for that. Instead, she reinvents herself and the new Bobbie Jones—new haircut, new name, new attitude—follows her soon-to-be ex to the small Northern California town of Cottonmouth.

What better way to show him—and his sweetheart—what he’s missing in the brand new Bobbie Jones than taking up with the town’s local bad boy—who’s also reputed to be a serial killer. Nick Angel is devilishly handsome and sexy as all get-out. In a word, perfect.

It’s all going exactly according to plan...until a real murder rocks the little town of Cottonmouth. Of course, Nick didn’t do it...did he?

Previously published as "Sex and the Serial Killer" I found myself rooting for the "serial killer." It was also nice to find out that the "pretty blonde from high school" was lying about more than her dark roots and although I won't give anything else away, just let me say that I always like a happy ending. This was a pretty much a "cookie cutter" plot, but the situations, the dialogue and the well-fleshed-out characters made it very enjoyable quick light read. Excellent choice for reading at the beach or in the hammock with a big glass of iced tea with mint.
