Today is the Did I Notice Your Book? blogfest hosted by Ciara Knight, the mastermind behind the DINYB series, and Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh. The idea is to pick a book that isn't yet on the New York Times bestsellers list, and advertise it on our blogs. We're not supposed to contact the author directly to let them know what we're doing, but wait and see if they find out on their own!
My reasons for choosing this book:
- The title
- The cover (and yeah, I hate summer, and already live by a beach, but still, I was enticed)
- The blurb!
Being ditched at the altar is the least of Lizzie Mancini’s problems. Sitting in a Caribbean jail cell accused of murdering her “pretend” husband, however, is at the top of the list.
After her real groom jilts her, Lizzie decides to go solo on their Belize honeymoon and meets handsome Michael Garcia, who is nursing his own heartache. To avoid the bleakness of dining and sightseeing alone, as well as questions from nosy, if well-meaning, fellow guests at the couples-only resort, the two agree to pose as newlyweds for the week—no strings (or sex) attached.
The plan runs smoothly until Lizzie enjoys the attentions of the local scuba instructor and Michael’s body washes ashore. Suddenly the “Mrs.” is mistakenly ID’d as suspect numero uno. With the Polizia Nationale ready to close the case and cook her goose, Lizzie will have to solve the crime herself.
Unexpected romance and international intrigue are center stage in Beth Orsoff’s mystery caper that takes “’til death do us part” to a whole new level.
