Jamie, madcap editor of a newspaper in Beaumont, South Carolina, and Max Holt, mysterious millionaire and silent partner, are back. Romantic innuendo and sexual tension run high as they investigate murders relating to ads in the personals column. Narrator Lorelei King handles a broad range of characters of both genders and all ages, switching seamlessly from elderly Vera, Jamie's secretary, to Muffin, Max's computer, who makes her presence known in a wispy Marilyn Monroe voice. King gives attention to phrasing and pacing in her characterization and story enhancement. Although the ending is predictable, the journey, filled with comedic incidents, often inspires outright laughter. For those looking for a romantic, well-articulated story.
