The lives of two strangers, Greg Jenkins and Megan Brighton, become inextricably entangled when they each sign up for a dinner dating agency. Greg's reason for joining has nothing to do with looking for love. His recently divorced sister, Sam, has disappeared and Greg is convinced that Dinner for Twelve, or at least one of its clients, may be responsible. Neither is Megan looking for love. Although single, she only joined at her best friend Brenda De Luca's insistence. When a client of the dating agency is murdered, suspicion falls on several of the members.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, I don't think I would recommend this book. I loved the description, and the plot had plenty of things going on, but it was too wordy. 51 chapters was too much info for this story

Would you be willing to try another book from Vicki Tyley? Why or why not?

Yes, I would read another book by this author because I loved parts of this book. I liked very much the pieces that worked, I just think there were too many pieces that went overboard.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator did an ok job, her voice was a bit tinny, but she read the story well.

Did Fatal Liaison inspire you to do anything?

No.

Any additional comments?

I'd like to see another book by Ms. Tyly, but I would like to see it tightened up a bit.
