After reading Dating Dead Men I do agree that there are a lot of similarities in their writing styles and that Kozak, with a little fine tuning, is on the right track to follow in Evanovich's footsteps. Like Stephanie Plum, Kozak has created a hilarious and likeable female character in Wollie Shelly. Dead End Dating (Dead End Dating #1), Dead and Dateless (Dead End Dating, #2), Your Coffin or Mine? (Dead End Dating #3), The Mammoth Book of Vampire Ro.

It’s a pleasure to run across the exception that proves the rule, the one that says famous people tend to write bad fiction. I’ll have to admit, however, that, Dating Dead Men shows that Harley’s writing career is still a work in progress. The pacing is irregular and the middle portion of the book . A sequel to Dating Dead Men, this mystery is just as fun and quirky as the last one, although the plot was a little more screwball. I should have a bookshelf for humor, since my most favorite books usually have to have that element, and this one does. Wollie's love interest from the first book has broken their engagement and moved to Asia to try to get custody of his daughter /5.

Wollie Shelley, the plucky amateur sleuth Kirkus Reviews called “funny, brave, smart, and altogether the fetchingest crime heroine since the early Stephanie Plum,” returns to face suspect lovers and unlovable suspects in this hilarious sequel to Dating Dead Men. Wollie Shelley is a greeting card artist struggling to keep afloat financially and to pursue—despite a series of 4/4(35).
