The plot is interesting, and the book combines a mystery and romance very well. I enjoyed the returning cast of quirky characters and the fun writing style of Kyra Davis, but this book (3rd in the series) was my least favorite. Don't know if that was because of the political angle, the 'furry' stuff, or that I got lost trying to follow Sophie and Anatoly make a connection between all the suspects. Still, it was a quick, fun read.

I loved the plot twists and turns this book had. The book was laugh out loud funny. Ms. Davis has yet another hit on her hands with this one. A must read!!

Sophie Katz was surprised when her former English teacher and creative writing mentor contacts her for a favor, but she was never prepared for what Melanie O'Reilly would ask of her. But Sophie owes Melanie bigtime since her help got Sophie's writing career started--so what else can she say but yes?

Melanie thought her husband, Eugene, was cheating on her and since Sophie was the only friend who had not met Eugene--Melanie wanted her to try and seduce him to prove it.

Of course, there's good news and bad news. The good news is that Eugene was too much of a straight arrow to cheat on his wife. The bad news is that someone shot him right after his meeting with Sophie.

Again, Sophie can't refuse when Melanie asks her to investigate Eugene's death. Enter Sophie's ex-boyfriend, Russian private detective Anatoly Darinsky and the sparks between the two fly.

I love Sophie Katz and in Obsession, Deceit and Really Dark Chocolate I have to say Ms. Davis has outdone herself. Not only is Sophie again in the middle of a murder mystery but also the sexy, dark Anatoly is back. Will she be able to explain that when she said she wanted a boyfriend that she meant a "Tim Robbins to her Susan Sarandon" not marriage? This will play out throughout the story. I absolutely loved the scene where Deena has to explain "plushies" and "furries" to Sophie. Add to the story the hot interactions between Anatoly and Sophie and you have a winner.
