SUSPECT LOVER

Author(s): 
SUSPECT LOVER (3) by Stephanie Doyle: At 35, Virginia-based writer Caroline Somerville longs for a family. Without a man in her life, she tries an exclusive Internet dating service and is matched up with Silicon Valley businessman Dominic Santos. He invites Caroline to California, and the attraction is immediate. They jump in feet first and are soon married, but the marriage gets off to a rocky start. Then Dominic's business partner is murdered and he disappears, leaving Caroline wondering if she's made the biggest mistake of her life. The many narrative strands don't feel cohesive, and the relationship between Caroline and Dominic has barely developed when the murder happens, so it's hard for readers to connect. But wanting to see how it all connects may keep readers involved.
