I don't know why, because this was very well plotted and entertaining. I think perhaps that as the third in the series, the novelty is wearing off for me.
This series has as its detective-heroine Morgan Tyler, a producer-writer of a hit soap opera -- scratch that -- daytime drama. One of the leads has a problem: he's being stalked by a woman who thinks she is married to him. Morgan feels responsible for her stars since if anything happened to them she'd have a serious production problem. So she gets involved in trying to protect him from this women, although he refuses to involve the police. In the process of dealing with this woman, she ends up going to see someone who not long afterwards ends up the victim of foul play. Although one of her boyfriends, a homicide detective, warns her away from involvement, she IS involved, particularly when a murder attempt is made a few days later on someone else involved with the show.
The quick pace, entertaining behind-the-scenes-in-daytime-drama setting, and likeable main character (Morgan) make for a quick and enjoyable read. This is not Elizabeth George, however --like the dramas this author writes about, the emphasis is on entertainment, not high literary or artistic value. I intend to continue reading the series with pleasure, because sometimes I just want to be entertained!
