REVIEW: To Catch a Cop

~~I may be slow getting through my to-be-read list, but I know a good book when I read one:
Elle Druskin's To Catch a Cop is a delicious romance and a neat murder mystery rolled into one good read. With a tight plot that does good service to both facets of the story line. To Catch a Cop starts fast and doesn't let up.

Here's the synopsis from Amazon:
Forty-year-old single mother Lindy Kellerman needs a man, a secure job and an exercise program. What she gets is a dead student in her Sydney university nursing classroom.

Detective Fraser MacKinnon needs to meet a smart woman and can't decide whether to arrest Lindy or seduce her. With Lindy as chief suspect and threatened by the real killer, MacKinnon has his hands full.

Interrupted attempts at furthering their romance combine with Lindy's amateur sleuthing. Lindy's hunches and MacKinnon's skill leads them down a trail of false leads and university scandals with a murderer ready to strike again. Along the way Lindy and Fraser discover that love is definitely better the second time around.

~~By the way, Eve's "To Catch" series has another installment available. Check out To Catch a Thief, too. Yep, it's on my TBR list. ; )
