Dumped? For her husband’s high school sweetheart he hasn’t seen in twenty years? Roberta Jones Spivey isn’t going to lay down for that, no way. Instead, she decides to reinvent herself. The new Bobbie Jones—new haircut, new name, new attitude—will follow her soon-to-be ex to the small Northern California town of Cottonmouth. And there she’ll show him—and his sweetheart—what a big mistake he made.
What better way to show him what he’s missing in the brand new Bobbie Jones than taking up with the town’s local bad boy—who*’s also reputed to be a serial killer. Nick Angel is devilishly handsome and sexy as all get-out. In a word, perfect.
It’s all going exactly according to plan...until a real murder rocks the little town of Cottonmouth. Of course, Nick didn’t do it...did he?
~Previously published in 2005 as Sex and the Serial Killer~
She's Gotta Be Mine begins when Bobbie decides to completely change herself outside and inside. Her husband just left her for his high school sweetheart, and she has no idea what she's going to do. So, instead of wallowing in self pity, she decides to go to Cottonmouth and show him what he's missing. But she never expected to meet Nick, and to have problems when someone is murdered.
This book was okay. I liked it, but the heroine drove me nuts sometimes. Other than that I liked the plot line, and I enjoyed most of the characters. It made me laugh quite a few times, and be happy about the whole woman power thing too. :)
So, this was a nice simply read to pass the time with, but it wasn't something I was emotionally invested in. It was still enjoyable though. But I'm not sure if I will read anymore in this series.
