    Jennifer Marsh is a writer who wants one of her mystery books published so badly she's afraid to tell her boyfriend she loves him for fear it will take time away from her writing. However, when Journalist Sam Culpepper's ex-girlfriend comes to him for help. Jennifer is not only angry but also jealous that her boyfriend is allowing her stay with him.

    To take her mind off her troubles, Jennifer tries to find out if Suzanne Gray committed suicide like everyone believes or if she was murdered. Sam's ex-girlfriend Belle horns in on the investigation and eventually moves in with Jennifer after Sam's home is burglarized. When somebody tries to shoot Belle, Jennifer decides she must shift her focus if she is ever to get the third wheel out of their lives.

    DYING TO GET HER MAN will definitely appeal to the cozy and amateur sleuth crowd. The heroine is humorous, spunky and loyal, serving as an ideal role model. Judy Fitzwater injects a lot of humor in her novel but she definitely knows how to create a fascinating story line that will keep readers interested in finding out what is really going on.
