Synopsis from Goodreads: A modern-day Miss Lonelyhearts, Gina's smart, she's sassy, she's got a potty mouth, and she's determined to live life on her own terms. She's also divorced, an empty nester, and turning fifty. In the true spirit of mid-life crises, Gina dyes her hair, pierces her nose, and moves to a tiny tourist town on the Canadian shores of Lake Huron.


Just as she's settling into her new life and deciding whether to fall into bed with her hot contractor, Gina advises a reader to leave her husband, right before the woman goes missing. And Gina's got a stalker. Is it her vengeful ex-husband, the abusive ex of the missing woman, or her new crush's crazy ex? All three would love to get her alone in some dark and deserted place, which isn't tough to do since her new residence is an old family cottage she's renovating on an empty stretch of beach.


Can Gina outsmart her stalker and find the missing woman before the noose around her own neck gets any tighter?


My Review: This one sounded like it would be a great read but it just didn't work for me. The book isn't really sure what genre it wants to fit into and the jumping between them really threw off my reading. I liked the mystery and I liked the main character, who has a lot of sass and wit but overall I didn't love it. I would probably give book two a chance and hope that that story line stuck to a genre.
