Divorced, Desperate and Delicious by Christie Craig was a fun, light hearted read, even though there was some suspense. Story 3.5, Heat 3. Lacy is a divorced, wacky pet photographer who is desperate for sex, but doesn’t want casual sex because she is afraid to fall in love and get married immediately like her mom has done numerous times. Chase is a good cop, framed for drugs and murder. Chase is shot by the bad cop, but gets away to Lacy’s house and hides out there.
When Chase shows up in her backyard, Lacy is doing a Christmas photo shoot (in February) with her pets dressed for Christmas, decorations and Christmas music. She comes off completely whack-a-doo. At first she is scared, but after he handcuffs her to her bed so he can get some rest, she begins to believe him, and as they work to clear his name, they begin to fall for each other.
The cast of wacky characters in this book make it fun, especially Lacy’s mom and her friend Sue. The book had a similar feel to Janet Evanovich’s books, which are fun, yet have another criminal story going on. I liked the characters and the story. It was a fun read. The book ended at 88% which disappointed me because I thought there was going to be more.
Recommended for a light, fun read in between the more intense, can’t put sown books.
