Christie Craig's debut novel with Dorchester, DIVORCED, DESPERATE & DELICIOUS, slated for release Nov. 27, 2007, is a winner.
Lacy Maguire is soured on relationships. One broken engagement and one failed marriage would do that to any woman. (Not to mention her mother's track record of six divorces.) Lacy's career, friends and pets keep her busy you know. Who has time for dating, or kissing or any of that stuff? Who needs a man's arms around her, a man's warm breath in her ear, a man...ah, where were we? Oh, yeah. Who needs a man! So what to do with the hunk her dog has just found hiding behind the backyard shed?
Wet, wounded and running, police detective Chase Kelly needs to lay low until he can nail the rouge cop who tried to kill him, but is this the place? The lady is a looker, but quirky. I mean, it's February and the house is filled with Christmas music, her ugly little dog is wearing antlers, and a cat's in a Santa suit! Is this a woman he can trust not to give him away?
Christie's characters are warm and wonderful, and the plot intriguing. Her skillful humor carries us through even the more improbable scenes - imagine family, friends, good guys and bad guys all crowding into Lacy's small home at the same time! Christie makes it work. When you've finished reading this one, you'll haunt your favorite bookstore for the next book in her line up.
