According to Amazon I purchased this book on 27th October 2012, so I thought it was about time I read it! I have to say I have really enjoyed it. It is exactly what it claims to be, “A sexy, funny, mystery/romance”.
I immediately liked Bobbie (AKA Roberta). She is 40 and recently separated from her husband, Warren. He left her for Cookie, who he seems to be have been obsessed with since high school.
Bobbie has given up her job and moved to Cottonmouth to make a brave new start. It becomes obvious as the story continues that Warren wasn’t the right person for her. There was no passion in their relationship at all and Roberta didn’t feel at all desirable. She decides to become Bobbie and is determined to prove to herself, and Warren, that she can find a man who will find her attractive. When she spots her new neighbour across the street, she more than likes what she sees.
Nick keeps himself to himself. He’s known locally as ‘the serial killer’ and although he’s very standoffish to start with, I couldn’t help but like his character. I thoroughly enjoyed the way the relationship between Bobbie and Nick develops. It doesn’t take long. The chemistry between them is palpable and there are one or two very sexy encounters between them!
Aside from the romance, there is a mystery to solve as a murder is committed and it’s a race against time to find out the real killer before anyone else gets hurt.
I found this to be a very well written story with great characters (a very eclectic bunch!) and a storyline full of romance, passion and suspense. I have added book 2 in the series to my wish list.
