Shelby Simon is one
of Chicago’s hottest advice columnists. Her popularity has
made her the target of a notorious letter bomber. With her life
in danger, she’s assigned a police bodyguard, but she doesn’t
realize how serious the attempts are until her mailman suffers the
Callahan is not happy he’s been selected to be providing protection
for Shelby. Babysitting a stuck-up advice columnist is not his idea
of an ideal assignment. When an attempt is made on her life, he
takes the threat seriously and hustles her out of town. The two
return to her remote and rural hometown, where Shelby soon finds
herself giving free advice to her family.
Danger, it seems,
has followed them home. Death is the prominent smell in the air.
Will it succeed in finding its victim?
Ms. Simon Says will keep reader in suspense until the identity of
the letter bomber is finally revealed. There were just a few scenes
that had me wondering why the author didn’t think them out
before including them. One of the greatest mysteries is why the
author put Shelby’s family in danger by having her return
home. Errors such as this drew my attention away from the overall
effect of what could have been a perfect romantic suspense.
