Murder Most Unusual by Michelle Somers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Wicked murders, witty one-liners and totally satisfying romance. Murder Most Unusual in the style of Murder She Wrote, only a whole lot scarier with romance thrown in. A totally entertaining read that mixed bone-chilling, thrilling murder with sweet, subtle, sexy romance. Genius writing from the pen of up and coming author, Michelle Somers.
Full of twists and turns in revealing the villian, the suspense keeps you on the edge of your seat while the tug of attraction and a sense of humour delivers a welcome relief from the intensity of the plot exactly when you need it. I wonder what this author’s wicked mind will deliver next?

SHE WRITES. HE WATCHES. HE WAITS. HE KILLS…
Romance novelist Stacey Holland doesn’t believe in love; marriage to a manipulator taught her as much. So she hides away in her fictional world, penning the perfect romance, intertwining the perfect crime. Excitement is for her books – worlds where the mortality of her characters is governed by a tap on her keyboard and the heroine always gets her happy ever after.
Homicide detective Chase Durant’s cases are real and gritty and one wrong move could be his last. The force is his life – he doesn’t have room for more. Love and relationships hold no place for a man whose fate is predetermined by the genetic roll of a dice. With uncertainty on the horizon, he won’t promise a future he can’t guarantee.
Then a sadistic killer breathes Stacey’s gruesome murders to life and the pair are thrown together in a sick game of murder and lies.
When tempers flare, and the murders get personal, can author and detective fight their growing attraction all-the-while fighting the killer determined to destroy them both?
Murder Most Unusual is a seductive romantic suspense set in Melbourne, Australia, written by Michelle Somers, award-winning author of Lethal in Love.
