An oldie but a goody??? (Published in 2002) Well maybe. Honestly I didn't get the premise at first. Woman goes to get married, guy doesn't show up. Guy goes missing. Cute cop acquaintance shows up to question her and then... nothing? New ex is fine. No, he wouldn't be fine. Leave me at the altar and I'm gonna find someone to kill you.
In the space of a few hours, thirty-year-old Ginger Petrocelli had gone from bride-to-be to bride-who-never-was. So here she sat, alone in her cramped apartment, wedding crinolines askew, drowning her sorrows in a hundred-dollar bottle of Veuve Cliquot, when her doorbell rang. And her trip to hell in a hand basket was about to escalate. At the door: Nick, Ginger's "first." Only, he's a police officer now, and he wants to find out what she knows about her M.I.A. congressman fiancée.
So as though that weren't enough for a woman to bear, her boss is murdered so she loses her job and her apartment and has to move home with mom.
For a Red Dress Ink book, this one was a a little flimsy. Sure she suffered at first and everything ended up fine at the end but nothing was really a surprise. Every time the author approached the edge, she pulled back. Too light-hearted to be deep, but not fluffy enough to be mindless entertainment.
What can you say about a book when all one could say is it's grammatically correct (of course that more than I can say) and the story flows. Honestly I just don't see what all the fuss is about.
