Wollie Shelley, the
plucky amateur sleuth Kirkus Reviews called “funny, brave, smart, and
altogether the fetchingest crime heroine since the early Stephanie Plum,”
returns to face suspect lovers and unlovable suspects in this hilarious sequel
to Dating Dead Men.
Wollie Shelley is a
greeting card artist struggling to keep afloat financially and to
pursue—despite a series of recent disasters—the search for the love of her
life. She reluctantly agrees to be a contestant on the reality television show Biological
Clock. The show’s premise: Six eligible singles date each other, and the audience
votes on which couple would make the best parents. Alas, Wollie isn’t having
much luck finding a man she’d like to date “off the air,” much less father her
child. As her own biological clock ticks away, Wollie gets caught up in a much
more pressing demand on her time. Her friend Annika has vanished into thin air,
and Wollie is convinced that she’s in grave danger.
When Wollie reports the
disappearance to the Los Angeles Police Department, however, the detective
assigned to the case seems more interested in dating Wollie than in finding her
friend. So Wollie springs into action—and lands right in the middle of an FBI
investigation into an international drug cartel. She soon finds herself being
stalked by an assortment of threatening characters, including her fellow
televisioncontestants, who will stop at nothing to beat the clock.
