Los Angeles greeting-card artist Wollie Shelley is dating 40 men in 60 days as research for a radio talk show host's upcoming book. Wollie is meeting plenty of eligible bachelors but not falling in love, not until she stumbles over a dead body en route to Rio Pescado - a state-run mental hospital - and is taken hostage by a charismatic doctor who is on the run from the Mob.

Wollie fears that her beloved brother, a paranoid schizophrenic living at Rio Pescado, is involved in the murder, so rather than go to the authorities, she decides to solve the crime on her own. As she meets up with an array of small-time crooks and swaggering mobsters only slightly more sinister than the men she's been dating, Wollie realizes that to find true love she'll first have to avoid getting killed!

    " Dating Dead books feature Wollstonecraft "Wollie" Shelly, a greeting card designer from LA. Her brother, PB (you can figure out what THAT stands for) has schizophrenia. Wollie spends most of her time trying to find work, love, and the answer to some bizarre murder mysteries. "

    " Fluff reading. So far so good! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 1/12/2014

    " I picked up this book because I read a short story of Kozak's in a mystery/sci-fi anthology. I really enjoyed this full-length novel of hers. Her heroine is a quirky, klutzy single gal slightly reminiscent of Bridget Jones, who manages to be relatable and guileless without being annoyingly naive. It was a fast, fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shauna | 1/8/2014

    " Many years ago, I used to browse the library stacks to find things to read. Once in a while I'd get lucky and come across something that I really liked. This book was one I found in that way. I remember really enjoying it--finding it terribly quirky and funny--part mystery--part romance. Lately, I've found the desire to revisit some of my past favorites to see if they still hold up to my memories. This one did. I enjoyed it just as much this time around. Call it chick-lit if you will, but I think it's just a fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 12/27/2013

    " I loved this book. I thought it was great...very entertaining throughout and hard to put down. I would give it 5 stars, but it is more of a fun read than literary genius. Unfortunately, this author has not written any more books. She is an actress. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer A.M. | 12/25/2013

    " It was ok. The middle dragged, but the ending wasn't too bad. I might pick up the next in the series, but then again, I might not. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nikki | 12/22/2013

    " First of the Wollie Shelley series and very enjoyable with wacky characters who get involved in very serious trouble. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Konnie | 12/14/2013

    " Fun and good escapism. A quick read when you don't want to think too hard. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 12/14/2013

    " Smart and funny. If you like Janet Evanovich, HJ Kozak takes it to a new level. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/8/2013

    " OK story, OK characters - the best friend MADE the book! Laugh-out-loud dialogue for best friend - wish all the characters were like her! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marianne | 9/27/2013

    " Very good. It kept me entertained. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Schill Beth | 9/16/2013

    " This was a fun read. A great one to take to the beach. I was surprised by the twists and enjoyed the vivid language. This is the first book by the author and I will be sure to check out her next one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marie | 9/6/2013

    " Very light but fun story about a greeting card artist with a schizophrenic brother who gets wrapped up with the mob. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 8/14/2013

    " I couldn't get into the characters or plot of this humorous? novel, written kind of in the style of Evanovich. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Re | 6/7/2013

    " Re-reading, and enjoying even more than the first time, about a year ago ! I have ordered the 3rd bk.in this series, online, and hope to be starting it soon. This author is a 5* author TO ME. I won't be missing reading one of her books, for a fact. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hilary | 4/27/2013

    " It was funny, but I sort of got lost in the plot. Couldn't keep track of all the various characters. I far preferred Dating is Murder. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan Erhardt | 9/9/2012

    " This seemed like kind of a poor man's Janet Evanovich. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pam | 2/12/2012

    " I listened to 9 of the 10 CDs but didn't finish listening bc it wasn't worth my time. Plus I wanted to concentrate on finishing Twilight by Stephenie Meyer (which I'm liking). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marci | 2/3/2012

    " Fun light read. Perfect for a vacation book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie aka StoreyBook Reviews | 11/19/2011

    " This was a pretty good book about a greeting card writer with a card store that ends up mixed up in a murder and the happenings of a mob all because of Doc (a hunky man that "kidnaps" her and then tries to let her go but Wollie doesn't want to go). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terry | 10/30/2011

    " A light mystery read. Good writing and some pretty funny parts. Some of the plot was a little over the top for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaye | 7/10/2011

    " A friend of mine on here recommended this series and I am so glad she did. I LOVED it. The characters are zany and fresh. If you like Stephanie Plum or Sophie Metropolis you are going to like this series too!! I am ready to start the next one! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kaitlin | 6/19/2011

    " This book seemed very long and drawn out. Also many things needed to be explained in more detail. However, over all it was an okay book. "

    " Not bad. It's a first novel, but she knows how to string sentences together. I'll try another book by same author. "

    " 17. Dating Dead Men by Harley Jane Kozak – A fun read. A plotline that’s not-so-straightforward and fun subplots make this a little tricky to keep track of (especially if you’re reading it at work, being interrupted by 9-1-1 calls or officers on the teletype radio), but it’s worth it! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rachel | 9/21/2010

    " This book wasn't too good. It was mildly funny, a little profane and had one inexplicit (thankfully) moment of fornication. Don't need to read it again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frankiea20 | 6/6/2010

    " I enjoyed this book. It took me awhile to get into it, partially due to it being in first person. I did learn to love the eccentricities of the main character, Wollie. She is always looking for the best in everyone and does seem completely naive at times. "
