Molly Harbison hates being asked “What do you do?” more than cleaning the ring around the bathtub or digging Cheerios and raisins out of the car’s back seat. She’s tried on every possibility from a flip Domestic Goddess to a simple declarative Mom. She jumps at the chance to make some extra money as a secret shopper. But when she’s assigned to shop an online dating site…things get tricky. For one, she realizes her husband doesn’t exactly meet her checklist of “must haves” for the perfect man, not at all like her dating site Mr. Perfect. For another, the FBI wants her to actually keep her date with Mr. Perfect, who just may be the perfect serial killer.
Not the Usual
I’m not the target reader for Shop and Let Die, since I’m a man while this is very much a woman’s novel heavy on problems with children and hubby.
As thrillers go, SaLD’s plot develops slowly and remains low-key until the sudden climax. The writing is very smooth, the domestic details well developed until the last few pages bring the heroine’s terrifying dilemma to the fore.
Such an entertaining and never want to put down read. Really enjoyed this book from cover to cover. This was my first encounter with this author but am enthusiastically ready to dive into my next read.
Very enjoyable book to read. It was nice to read about another stay-at-home-mom. Molly seems like a real mom that realizes she doesn't have it all together but still tries.
