I’m not a huge fan of books, in fact its a rare occasion if you see me engrossed in a good novel unless I’m sunbathing on the beach or relaxing by the pool. However my fiance recently bought me a selection of Little Black Dress Books and I have been absolutely hooked. The first one I read was called The Batchalorette Party, a romantic comedy about a bride to be who has one or two secrets that all spill out on her drunken hen night. A great read for any girl who fancies a few chuckles to herself.
I have just finished my second novel in the collection entitled Sex, Lies and Online Dating. After reading the first few chapters a month or so ago I can’t say it really grabbed me but after reading the third chapter I could not put it down. The book follows two lives, a mystery writer called Lucy and an undercover detective named Quinn. They meet online and decide to set up a date, Lucy needs inspiration for her latest book and Quinn has a murder case to solve that the police think Lucy is linked to due to the relationship between her stories and the actual murders.
This novel isn’t half as funny as The Batchelorette Party but is such a fantastic read. You are right there as their relationship develops into much more than just a coffee date and you will be guessing who the murderer is the whole way through. I guessed who it was about 3/4 of the way through!
Sex, Lies and Online Dating is written by Rachel Gibson and is available at Amazon for the bargain price of £3.49 – a perfect stocking filler!
