Publisher's Summary

Reality TV meets murder in the first in a new mystery series from the author of the Maternal Instincts Mysteries and coauthor of the New York Times best-selling Scrapbooking Mysteries.

When brokenhearted Georgia Thornton goes looking for romance on reality TV, she has nothing to lose - apart from a good man, a cash prize, and maybe her life.... What was Georgia thinking? Sure, some cad ditched her at the altar, but can she really find love on TV? Her best friend - and producer of the reality show Love or Money - thinks so.

Ten men. Ten adventure-filled dates. What can go wrong? For starters, a faulty bungee cord that hurls Georgia's first date into a tragic spiral off the Golden Gate Bridge. He's replaced by Paul Sanders, Georgia's former fiancé. But the cop isn't looking for a TV gig. Suspecting that the lover's leap was no accident, Paul's going undercover. When another bachelor gets a fatal kiss-off, the reality is that someone has killer new plans for the show - and for Georgia herself. Now, under the threat of permanent cancellation, Georgia fears that the only man on the set she can trust is the one man she just can't count on....

Fun Romantic Mystery

What I liked:
-It was just fun. It was like watching a murder version of the Bachelor. I needed a break from my serious reads and this did nicely.
-I didn't suspect the killer. It's a fluff book, but written well enough that it was not obvious.
-The romance. I liked that her opinion of the contestants kept revolving, and I didn't know who'd she end up with. There's a spin on the show that sets it apart from The Bachelor, and makes it hard to trust the contestants. I thought that was a unique twist.
-It wasn't an "adult" book. There isn't sleeping around, sex scenes, etc.
-The swearing was mild.

What I didn't like:
-I didn't like the way the investigation was handled. I guess it was like that to prolong the mystery and the book, but I thought surely the cops could investigate a bit better.

You have to be in the mood for it, but if you want some clean fluff that's more than just romance, I recommend this mystery.

Although it wasn't the best book I've listened to, I'll definitely read more from this author

Meh

The premise was good. I liked the idea but I felt like there was a lot missing in the background development. The characters are great for a cozy mystery but I honestly don’t even know what the motive is in the end. Why did that person do what they did? Why did the ex fiancé not show up at the wedding? Why did the killer kill that first time? Why did Georgia really sign up for this tv show? Coming away with all these holes in my understanding of the mystery make it a “meh” for me.

Great read

Loved the story, lots of surprises. The only thing I was disappointed how the ending was written. It seemed looked I’m tired of writing and rushed the conclusion

Thank goodness it was audible plus

This was like those dimestore novels. Repetitive phrasing, dumb predictable characters, average plot. As the writer would say - this was not “tightly written “ if you want a noise in the background I would recommend this.. otherwise leave it.
