    Lucy Savage is not having a good week. Her cheating husband, Bradley, lobbed the final insult when he stood her up in divorce court. A dye job gone wrong has left her hair green. And someone is trying to kill her. To top it off, sexy cop Zack Warren is certain that the very same man Lucy is trying to wash right out of her hair is the same Bradley he wants to arrest for embezzlement. When someone shoots at her and then her car blows up, Zack decides she needs 24-hour police protection.

    "Idiot Plot"
    Overall

    I read and loved "Anyone But You" and decided I'd try another Crusie book. What a disappointment! The characters were pretty much cookie-cutter and the plot farfetched, full of absurd coincidences. What bothered me most was the heavy reliance on the "idiot plot", where the heroine blithely refuses to believe she's in danger despite massive evidence to the contrary, and the hero cop fails to spot a clue towards the end that absolutely hit me in the face. I found myself mentally shouting at the characters for being so obtuse.

    The narrator was a problem for me, too. She has a hard time doing believable men's voices; I couldn't picture the burly, beard-shadowed Zach while listening to her rendition of his voice. And why does Lucy's sister Tina have a heavy Brooklyn accent when Lucy herself has no trace of one?

    The dogs were cute, though.
