This has been my least favorite Sophie Katz book. It was predictable. I was more interested in Dena’s back story than I was in Sophie. Sophie has grown developed since the first book. She keeps
Making the same mistakes.

Thriller scribe Sophie Katz is as hard-boiled as a woman who drinks Grande Caramel Brownie Frappuccionos can be. So Sophie knows it's not paranoia, or post-divorce, living-alone-again jitters, when she becomes convinced that a crazed reader is sneaking into her apartment to reenact scenes from her books. The police, however, can't tell a good plot from an unmarked grave.

I could not even finish the book. Hate that the narration goes from 1st person to 3rd. The male narrator starts off too intense. For me Jonny came off more as an a**h**e than alpha male and Izzy was pathetic. The author tried too hard that the characters weren’t believable. I’m glad it’s part of my romance package so I can return it
