Unsure if she is looking for Mr. Right, or Mr. Every Other Saturday Night, Laurel McKay reluctantly joins THE LOVE CLUB, a popular local dating service. Dressed to kill, she meets bachelor number one at a trendy restaurant. But the date is a bust, literally, when the guy decides Laurel is dessert, and she breaks his nose with her cell phone. It gets even worse when the man is found murdered the next morning, and Laurel has his blood on her clothes.
Despite her now being a person of interest to the police, Laurel bravely ventures out on date number two. When that unlucky bachelor disappears during dinner, Laurel’s only alibi is a bottle of Dom Perignon. The sexy investigating detective thinks she’s innocent and is worried she may be the next target. That’s more than enough motivation for Laurel to find a murderer determined to kill her social life–before dating becomes a dead end she can’t escape.
“Cindy Sample knows how to weave a story that satisfies and excites. Time literally flew by as I turned the pages…simultaneously harrowing, exciting, tender, and uplifting. Dying for a Date is a true who-done-it combined with a romance that will warm the heart and sheets.”
-Long and Short Reviews
“Packed with zany characters, humorous situations, and laugh-out-loud narrative. Consider reading this book in one setting, because once you start, you will be reluctant to put it aside.”
-Midwest Book Review
“Dying for a Date is one of those books, the type you stay up late – way too late – to finish. Combining murder mystery and humor is a difficult task and “Cindy Sample does it brilliantly.”
-Jenny Hilborne, author of the Mac Jackson Mystery Thriller series
“Dying for a Date combines the fun of a spunky and smart heroine with an exciting murder mystery. This is an excellent entry to the world of romantic mysteries.”
-San Francisco Book Review
“Funny, smart with a fast paced plot that keeps you guessing. Dying for a Date will keep you laughing, intrigued, and happy that Cindy Sample isn’t writing your life story.”
There are many good female sleuth books out there and most are moderately amusing. This was head and shoulders above them. The lead character, Laurel McKay, is real, down to earth, and FUNNY! It hasn’t been since the Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series (the early ones) that the humor has been so spontaneously ‘laugh out loud’ enjoyable! You will feel that Laurel’s family and friends are yours. In addition to the humor the plot was thrilling and the whole story left you not wanting to put the book down. Totally engaging and enjoyable!! A must read if you are a fan of female sleuths.”
