GCC Tour - Melissa Senate

It's Friday (almost since I'm actually posting this at night), and it's a very exciting day for me because I'm hosting my very first GCC (Girlfriend's Cyber Circuit) tour as I just became a member in January. The author is Melissa Senate and the book is LOVE YOU TO DEATH.

I absolutely LOVE the blurb and will definitely be picking this one up. Plus, it's kinda a cool concept - I mean, I wouldn't mind if someone went around bumping off some of the guys I used to date. They can't be contributing that much to society.........

LOVE YOU TO DEATH (January 07, Red Dress Ink)
By Melissa Senate

Abby Foote’s worst exes are on someone’s hit list. Who’s going around shooting men who broke Abby’s heart? And why?

First, a former boyfriend (who dumped Abby in the most humiliating way possible) is found murdered the day his engagement is announced. Then two other exes report attempts made on their lives right after breaking up with her. Coincidence? A very hot detective from the Portland Police Department doesn’t think so. Neither do Abby’s friends, family, coworkers and former boyfriends dating back to kindergarten, who are all shaking in their shoes as though the Abby they know and supposedly love to death is capable of, say, poisoning their Diet Cokes. Is someone trying to frame her? Do her some kind of warped favor? Abby, with that delicious detective on her trail, is about to find out.

“Readers will cheer Abby every step of the way as she tries to clear her name and find her prince for whom the glass slipper will finally fit.” –Publishers Weekly
