Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

What's a homicide detective to do when tracking down a female serial killer who targets her victims via online dating sites? In Gibson's breezy, formulaic new romance set in Boise, Idaho, said detective—handsome Quinn McIntyre—logs online and goes out on numerous first dates until he pinpoints the woman wacko enough to have committed the crimes. So begins the relationship between Quinn and Lucy Rothschild, a well-educated, 30-something professional who fits the killer's profile. Quinn isn't the only one with an agenda, however. Lucy, a mystery writer, is doing research for her next novel, which coincidentally features a female serial killer and Internet dating. Mutual lust impedes both Quinn and Lucy's plans, and miscommunication and the real serial killer serve as speed bumps on their path to love. While Gibson's fast-paced romp is mildly entertaining, her flimsy plot doesn't hold up to scrutiny, and her protagonists—the capable detective who's married to his work and the smart female who's been burned by a parade of Mr. Wrongs—never grow beyond their prescribed roles. (Feb.)

From Booklist

Lucy Rothschild has come up with a daring way of doing research for her newest mystery novel. Since her female serial killer meets her victims online, Lucy does the same. The men who respond to her e-mails and meet her in the Boise Starbucks provide excellent fodder, as well as verisimilitude. Finally Lucy only needs one more victim. Unbeknownst to her, Quinn McIntyre is actually an undercover detective trying to stop a serial killer. One thing the victims all have in common is that they are part of the online dating scene. As Quinn chats with Lucy, it becomes apparent that she is lying and that she knows way too much about police procedure. Lucy begins to fall for him, and Quinn falls for her, believing all the while that she's the killer. How Lucy's novel reads and how the serial killer's MO are so alike is just one of the fascinating aspects of Gibson's latest delightful page-turner. The others are her truly appealing and convincing characters. Maria Hatton

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fresh Effort! March 12 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ms. Gibson has penned another entertaining read. Her latest effort has her dabbling with the sub genre of Romantic Suspense and the end result is a very good read that I think will surprise her long time fans.
Lucy Rothschild is a mystery writer and her latest effort has her exploring the world of internet dating. She’s created a pretty intriguing storyline. She just has one more date too keep and she will be done. But this date is not like the others. He’s handsome, and seems sincere. But more importantly, she is attracted to him. So when he contacts her again, she wants to say no but instead says yes. What she doesn’t know is life is imitating her art…men are starting to turn up dead and several of them…Lucy has dated.
Quinn is an undercover detective working on a new serial murder case. They are trying to catch “Breathless” before she has a chance to kill again. His dating leads to Lucy Rothschild. He thinks she’s a murder but at the same time he can’t stay away from the sexy author. But, when Breathless kills once again…and Quinn and Lucy are together at the time, Quinn is going to have to come clean about his lies…will he be able to keep Lucy and will she forgive him before she becomes the next victim of Breathless?
Quinn and Lucy are wonderful characters. They’re romance is both sensual and sweet. The secondary characters that populate the pages are endearing additions. The suspense storyline was a fresh and demonstrates Ms. Gibson’s range as a writer. Ms. Gibson has penned a good story that will appeal to her loyal fans as well as new readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh My God...Oh My God... May 2 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am normally not a reader. It would normally take me over a year to finish one book. But since I have been reading Rachel Gibsons and Jennifer Crusie books I have been finishing them in less then a week.

This one was AWESOME. The story line was great. Kept you in there right to the end. I never expected who the killer would have been. I was so shocked. And the detail that she puts into the scenes was unbelievable.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes Romance with alittle mystery. Read it...you won't be sorry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Feb. 1 2006
By the Peripatetic Gardener - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Rachel Gibson writes funny romances, and in my opinion, she's written a few of the best...and a few of the worst.

So I buy her books, but sometimes throw them at the wall.

My copy of Sex, Lies, and Online Dating isn't dented - neither is the wall or the cat - it's not great, but it's fun, and it has great characters. My major criticism is that in too many respects it's a one idea story - crime writer and cop meet online both doing 'research' and pretending to be someone they're not.

I'm also getting very tired of books that spend too much time trying to sell the author's next book; the epilogue of this one is primarily devoted to the major character of book two in the 'series.' It feels more like a sales pitch than literature.

That said, I found the book to be entertaining. The characters are well-drawn, the action moves along fast enough, and the suspense element works. And if you're looking for hot love scenes and fetching pets, Gibson does them equally well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great story from Gibson Feb. 20 2006
By Tracy Vest - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Lucy Rothschild is a famous mystery novelist. As research for a book she is writing about a killer who chooses her victims from on-line dating services, Lucy jumps into the dating pool, pretending to be a nurse. Little does she realize that there is a real serial killer wreaking havoc and mayhem in Boise. Her latest date is with a sexy plumber named Quinn McIntyre. Actually Quinn is really a homicide detective and he thinks Lucy fits the profile of serial killer perfectly. When they initially meet, sparks fly, and when one of Lucy's other on-line paramours starts choking, she realizes Quinn will realize she's not a nurse, since she panics and he has to come to the rescue. So it surprises her when she receives a sappy email from him inviting her out. The two share many passionate kisses and a couple dates before they find themselves back at his place. While in a passionate clinch, Quinn is so worked up and attracted to Lucy that he announces he'll get her help, just before discovring that victim #4 has been found. Realizing Lucy isn't the culprit, he comes clean with her, and she's humiliated and flees. When she suddenly becomes the pen pal of the real serial killer, she is forced to work with Quinn to catch the killer.

While it doesn't take a rocket scientist to guess the identity of the femme fatale, it sure is a fun ride! Gibson uses her trademark humor and sizzle to tell a funny and sexy story capturing the dilemmas of dating in the new millennium.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining afternoon read Aug. 15 2006
By Misuzmama - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I liked this one. Its my first Rachel Gibson. After being disappointed in Lori Foster's novels ( I personally think she should stick to the anthologies -her's short stories are very good), I picked this one up and I'm glad I did.

Mystery writer Lucy is on assignment, a date to gather info on guys that she can use in her latest novel. She's been hooking up with men online and going to starbucks for 'mini' dates in the hopes that anyone of these guys will inspire a character.

Undercover cop Quinn in going on dates to find the female serial killer Breathless. She ties them up and suffocates them with dry cleaning bags.

Unfortuantely or fortunately, Lucy happens to have had contact with two of the previous victims. That makes her murder suspect number one. So what Lucy thinks is a real date (from his point of view anyway) is anything but. When Quinn finds out that she's writing a novel about murder that happens to include suffocating the male victims, he's convinced she's the murderer.

When Quinn realizes that she's not the murder and Lucy finds out the truth about his identity and the reason for their dates, she's devastated.

Only when the murder contacts Lucy, must she go to Quinn for help. So Quinn tries to protect Lucy from the pyscho and himself cause being next to the sexy lady does all kinds of things to his libido.

This book was really entertaining. The mystery was good, although a bit predictable. The characters were well drawn and the loves scenes were well written. I'll definitely be reading her other books.

Gibson introduces Lucy's three writer friends in this one. Clare's, the romance writer, is the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun and some great Romance!!! July 26 2006
By Marla - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Loads of fun and great romance is exactly how I would describe this book by Rachel Gibson. I have thoroughly enjoyed her books in the past and this one was no exception. It not only had some very fulfilling romance with very likeable characters especially the sexy Quinn, the suspense was very well done, making this book a great read. I'm now awaiting eagerly for her next book called I'm in no mood for love which features Clare who was Lucy's friend in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun, Romantic Mystery July 31 2006
By D. Malone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The writer's style is contemporary, including having parts of the story told via e-mails to and from other characters. The main character, Lucy, is a mystery writer. She has four friends (other writers as well) who get together for margaritas and critiques. Lucy is working on her latest novel about a female serial killer who meets her victims online and then kills them. Lucy joins an online dating service and uses her "dates" as research. In other words, she uses the guys she dates as models for her victims in her new novel. Meanwhile, a real serial killer is running rampant in the city mimicking Lucy's plot. Quinn, an homicide detective, goes undercover online to find the serial killer. Instead, he finds Lucy, but she fits the profile and so he thinks she's the serial killer. By the time he figures out she's not a killer, he's crossed the line and she can't forgive him. They end up reluctantly teaming up to catch the real killer and fall in love.

The writer's style is easy and quick to read and the plot is fun. This is a great beach or rainy day read. I'm looking forward to the next in the series.
