Sweet and innocent with a twist of girl-next-door, Cadence Jones is not your typical girl and certainly not your typical FBI agent. Just ask her sisters, Shiro and Adrienne. (Wait. . .best if you don't ask Adrienne anything.) But it's her special "talent" which makes Cadence so valuable to the FBI and it never comes in more handy than when she and her partner, George, get tagged to bring down the Threefer Killer. A serial killer who inexplicably likes to kill in threes, leave behind inexplicable newspaper clippings, and not one shred of decent forensic evidence, soon starts leaving messages that seem to be just for Cadence and her sisters. Could it be that this killer knows all about Cadence's special "talent"? In the meantime, love blooms in the most unexpected place when Cadence meets her best friend's gorgeous brother who is in town visiting--and she discovers that he knows her secret too! When attraction burns hot between them her best friend isn't thrilled with the romantic development and this time Cadence just might agree!
From New York Times bestselling author MaryJanice Davidson comes Me, Myself and Why?--an outrageously funny novel about a highly unconventional FBI agent, a rather odd serial killer, a best friend on the edge, a gorgeous baker. . .and oh, yeah, love.
Suddenly Cadence finds her unbalanced life turned even more upside down as she tries to date a baker who wants to get in her heart and in her bed, dodge a pesky psychiatrist, keep a leash on her sociopath partner, while trying to catch a serial killer who's now fixated on her.
Some days it's not even worth getting up in the morning. . .
Davidson's odd chick lit thriller cozy, the first in a trilogy introducing Cadence Jones, a federal agent afflicted with MPD (multiple personality disorder), will either delight or horrify. To begin, one must buy into the concept that the FBI would have a covert branch in Minneapolis, the Bureau of False Flags Ops (BOFFO), staffed with operatives like Jones; her sociopathic partner, George Pinkham; and assorted pyromaniacs, kleptomaniacs, and paranoid psychotics. Jones's joking about the various mental challenges of her crew may strike some as creepy in the context of their hunt for the "ThreeFer" serial killer. Meanwhile, Jones's alternating identities hop in and out during the disjointed investigation, creating romantic problems. Davidson (Undead and Unfinished) deserves credit for attempting black comedy, but her paranormal romance fans may be left scratching their heads. 100,000 first printing; author tour.

Clever, bizarre, absurd...thoroughly enjoyable!
I think the title says it all. This book was creatively kooky; in all the right ways. The dialogue was refreshing, the characters sparkled with life and scintillating wit. If you're open to wackiness that sounds plausible, then please indulge!
Yeah it's a bit hard to follow. But not a bad read. The suspense was good but the love story might as well not even been included as much as it was brought forward or not is what I'm getting at. It would have been nice for there to have been more development with the three n Patrick. Why he found them so alluring in the first place and if he had his own tweaks. He was kinda a non character. And as in many books I read the ending seemed rushed cut off or paraphrased. Readers would actually like it if you kept up with the detail and gave us a satisfying ending instead of a quickie to meet some words typed allowance. The book at the ending is what made me give it a low score.
An amazing,descriptive, and wonderful book for all to read. Selin
