Beware! Perfection has a dark side!
Frustrated with their busy schedules, Murphy Thornton and Jessica Faraday attempt to find togetherness by scheduling a weekly date night. The last thing Jessica expected for her date night was a couple's gourmet cooking course at the Stepford Kitchen Studio, owned by Chef Natalie Stepford--the embodiment of feminine perfection.
When Natalie ends up dead and Murphy goes missing, the Thorny Rose detectives must peel back the layers of Natalie Stepford's flawless life to discover that perfection has a very sinister dark side.

My Thoughts

On These Books

Here are all of the reasons to read this series:

  1. Absolutely loveable main characters Lieutenant Murphy Thornton and Jessica Faraday I quickly became attached to these two newlyweds who are hopelessly in love but realistic at the same time. Jessica is adorable and spunky while Murphy is hunky and easy to love.
  2. The animals in the books are hysterical over the top smart and add a lot to the plot. These animals are characters unto themselves.
  3. The plots are fast paced and addictive. I quickly became involved and read one book after the other. These books are full of great mystery, suspense and witty , love-able and quirky characters.

I cannot wait for Book #4!
