This is another Christian author and I like her main character, Jo Tulip. Her childhood and life are not picture-perfect and she has, at times, negative reactions and thoughts like the rest of us. Jo has a blog where she provides household tips and, more recently, dating. After six months of no dating, she signs up with a dating service. They find a match that she meets at a local steakhouse. He is absolutely nothing like the description given at the dating service and, to make matters worse, he drops to the floor unable to breathe! Danny, her best friend since childhood, doesn't understand why Jo doesn't see how much he loves her and he stands by to protect her when he can. However, she unknowingly has been drawn into an evil plot with real low lifes insisting she has something they want. There are some great characters in the book and some good twists in the plot which I always enjoy. I look forward to reading more from this author.

This is the second book in the "Tulip" trilogy.

Jo Tulip, who writes a syndicated helpful hints column, "Tips from Tulip", learned in the previous book ("The Trouble with Tulip") that her column is losing circulation and that she has to do something to save her column and connect with the young generation. You know, the people that are her age. She is doing that in part by going on-line and writing a blog. And, she's decided it's time to start dating again, after being unceremoniously dumped at the alter. To do this, she chooses a computer dating service.

She meets her computer match at a local steak house. It's definitely not a love match -- there's not even a chance that they'll be friends. But the evening gets even worse when her date drops dead from an apparent asthma attack. Then she finds that her date is actually in trunk of the car of the man who showed up for her date.

While the fake date's death appears to be from the asthma attack, Jo can't rule of the possibility of his death being a murder. She gets her best friend, Danny, who has showed up as the police photographer during the initial investigation into the date's death, to help her with her investigation.

Danny still hasn't told Jo that he's in love with her -- and Jo has no idea. Everyone else knows, but Jo is clueless and Danny isn't really aware that everyone else knows until he starts to ask for advice.

Once again, I enjoyed this book. I'm looking forward to the next book -- the ending of this book has an interesting twist and I'm hoping that it will resolve one of the issues that hasn't been resolved from the first book. The Christian theme is still there -- perhaps a bit stronger than in the first book -- but it wasn't an overpowering theme in the book.

What a great book! I love how the author portrays current Christian women. This was my second book by this author and I will keep on reading. I love a good "page turner"!
