Set in New York City, two 28-year-old friends, Darcy Scott and Erin Kelley, decide to try their romantic luck at answering personal ads. However, when Erin answers an ad reading "Loves Music, Loves to Dance," she is later killed by the man who wrote it, a man who turns out to be a personal-ad serial killer. Darcy sets out to discover who he is by going on the same dates Erin did, but she may not live to find out when he targets her as his next victim.
"Loves Music, Loves to Dance" is a fast-paced mystery, due in part to the brief chapters. Each scene is perhaps 1-2 pages long, which I liked, but, at times, the short passages didn't flow very well together. Plus there were too many characters to keep track of--suspects and investigators--which was basically to keep the reader guessing the identity of the killer. It's not too hard to guess him, though, if you keep a sharp eye on one of the men at the beginning, but even I had my doubts halfway through. Overall, this was a good mystery. Clark fans should like this one.
