Psychologist Christina McMullen is pretty good at helping people with their problems. If only she were half as good at solving the problems in her own life ...

Christina thinks all is going well until her secretary and best friend, Elaine, comes to work in tears because her boyfriend, J.D. Solberg, has not returned from his Las Vegas business convention. Although Christina can't stand Solberg, she tries to find out what happened for Elaine's sake, and it turns out that Solberg may not be missing due to his own volition. Once again, Christina has gotten herself involved in a situation that just might be too hot to handle.

The second book in Greiman's series even surpasses the superb first book. The writing is sharp and the dialogue realistic, with enough comedy interspersed. Greiman makes you feel for all of her characters. Whether you hate, love or fear for them, she brings forth every emotion. (Feb., 368 pp., $6.99)
