Sex, Lies and Online Dating by Rachel Gibson

Lucy Rothschild has come up with a daring way of doing research for her newest mystery novel. Since her female serial killer meets her victims online, Lucy does the same. The men who respond to her e-mails and meet her in the Boise Starbucks provide excellent fodder, as well as verisimilitude. Finally Lucy only needs one more victim. Unbeknownst to her, Quinn McIntyre is actually an undercover detective trying to stop a serial killer. One thing the victims all have in common is that they are part of the online dating scene. As Quinn chats with Lucy, it becomes apparent that she is lying and that she knows way too much about police procedure. Lucy begins to fall for him, and Quinn falls for her, believing all the while that she's the killer. How Lucy's novel reads and how the serial killer's MO are so alike is just one of the fascinating aspects of Gibson's latest delightful page-turner. The others are her truly appealing and convincing characters.

Every so often I read a book and I recongnize the heroine. As myself. In RG's latest book, that's exactly what happened.

Lucy Rothschild is funny, quirky, tough and sarcastic. Basically, me in a nutshell.

She joins an Online Dating service to do research for her latest book. As a mystery writer, she's trying to find the next few victims to kill off in her book.

At the same time, Quinn is undercover looking for a killer. Who just happens to be murdering her victims in the exact same manner as Lucy is killing hers in her book.

The story was great. RG definitely delivered again.
