FRIDAY: Love Her to Death and Love You Madly

Second in the Daytime Mysteries series. (See my review of the first book here.)

Morgan is back - with new responsibilities for her show as the co-executive producer - and new headaches like writing a whole new story line so an actress doesn't get fired from the show, a pushy executive, dueling love interests, and a cowering soap star, hiding from her ex (which is pretty hard to do when you star in daytime television!). The tension amps up when Morgan receives a scary surprise in the mail and a phone call about a dead body. Through it all, she is also learning things about herself and her "former" life as a wife, which adds a great layer to the story. 

I really enjoy these mysteries. Lately I have tried several books that didn't hook me - in fact, I probably should be reading other things from my TBR pile, but I knew I could count on Linda Palmer and this series, so I went back to it as a guaranteed good read. I was not disappointed.

I also got to read the third book in the series, Love You Madly. One of the stars of Morgan's "daytime drama" (never to be called a "soap opera") has a stalker. And the stalker things Morgan has a thing for "her" guy. The deeper Morgan digs, the creepier the stalker seems. And then people start to die.

Really enjoyed this one, too. The ensemble is great. These are people you want to spend a few hours with.

  1. I'll have to keep these in mind when I need a mystery fix. I do tend to get genre cravings...
