Publisher's summary

When David Zetrakis, the producer of a popular soap opera, is found shot to death, Wollie Shelley finds herself caught up in the murder. Zetrakis was one of the many Mr. Wrongs in Wollie's career as a serial dater, and her friend Joey has emerged as the media's prime suspect. A hot-tempered celebrity who had dated Zetrakis and was fired from his show some years ago, Joey has inherited a million-dollar Klimt painting from him. But Joey is not the only potential suspect.

Zetrakis left lots of nice bequests to the cast and crew of the show. And as the dating correspondent on a talk show called SoapDirt, Wollie, who's required to dine and dish with the stars, quickly discovers that the behind-the-scenes intrigues of television soaps are as highly charged as the on-screen shenanigans.

Make another date with amateur sleuth Wollie Shelley in Dating Is Murder.

Critic reviews

"A Greek mythology twist and crackling insider insight into the fascinating soap opera world enhance this clever whodunit." (Publishers Weekly)

Compelling

This is a interesting listen. I enjoyed the characters and plot, with lots of twists, although I'm not sure I'd compare it to Evanovich, which I have seen several times.

The writing kept me engaged, and the narrator was fine.

I'd also like to point out that this is the third book in the series, with the first book: Dating Dead Men not yet available at Audible. I was slightly confused and listened to this last book first.

Off to listen to Dating is Murder now...

Wolly strikes again

Wolly and her friends are back and better than ever. After reading Dead Ex I wanted to go back and re-read the previous two books.
If you have not read Dating Dead Men, do so.
Wolly, her brother and Uncle are a good time.
