The Serial Lover: An Annie March Novel
In this sequel to her first romantic mystery featuring Long Island freelance writer Annie March, Matetsky (The Perfect Body) offers a light story that will appeal to readers with a penchant for plucky amateur heroines who heedlessly plunge into dangerous situations. When March is honored by the mayor of Rockville Center for her role in tracking down a killer, the resulting publicity reunites her with Georgina Lake, an old friend now soap opera star, who invites March to an engagement party. At the party, Lake's fiancé, Grant Woods, hits on March. But before March can warn her friend about Woods, he turns up dead. Rejecting the advice of her boyfriend, Nassau County detective Eddie Lincoln, March works to exonerate Lake, who's been arrested for the crime. Almost everyone will spot the truth about the killing long before March does, but Matetsky tosses in a few sex scenes to satisfy readers for whom the whodunit plot is secondary.
