Unzipped - Chrissy McMullen, Bk 1 Author:Lois Greiman From Publishers Weekly — Wholly and sometimes heavy-handedly full of froth, this first contemporary romance - mystery from Greiman (who's better known for historical romances like Seducing a Princess) introduces an unusual heroine:Christina McMullen, a veteran cocktail waitress turned professional psychologist. — Chapter one promises m... more »adcap mayhem. By the end of it, Chrissy has become the prime suspect in the murder of impotent celebrity football player Andrew "Bomber" Bomstad, who had come to Chrissy for counseling. An open bottle of wine on Chrissy's desk -and convincing evidence, exposed through Bomber's unzipped jeans, that the doctor had cured his problem- is enough to persuade hunky police detective Jack Rivera of Chrissy's likely guilt.
Unfortunately, neither the plot nor characters develop much beyond this point. Jack remains unconvincingly convinced of Chrissy's guilt; she blunderingly tries to prove her innocence - period. And there's virtually no exploration of Chrissy's past, family or friends to suck readers in. Still, for a summer vacation read, simple sexy sport may well be just what the doctor ordered.

Very funny and quite sexy story of a slightly ditzy blonde bombshell who is a psychotherapist. A famous football player dies of a heart attack (I think that was it...) while chasing her around her desk with his pants off. His body remains with unmistakeable evidence of his strong interest in her... A few scenes are pretty racy, so I didn't pass this one along to my elderly mother, but I liked it and so did my wife.
Chrissy is a waitress turned therapist who has a problem on her hands: her rich client has just died during their therapy session and she is the number one suspect in his murder. With a (very hot) detective determined to prove her guilt, she has only her ditzy best friend and a geeky computer haker to help her solve the case before she ends up behind bars. I guess I was disappointed with this book because it was so often compared to Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books... the book was not as good as Evanovich's Plum novels(not even close), but it was a cute, light-hearted mystery with some fun moments.
