I did like the main character, Wollie, but thought it was nuts how far she would go for a man she didn't know (who could be a murderer). This was the first book I'd ever picked up by Harley Jane Kozak and I will definitely not be picking up any more!

The main character in Dating Dead Men, Wollie, is completely unrelatable.

There aren't any guards at the front desk so instead of screaming for help until someone comes or just grabbing the nearest phone and dialing 911 she decides the better idea is to break into the locked ward of the hospital after hours so she can drop off the foil in her brother's room.

After she does that she heads back to the elevator and sees a guy dressed in surgical scrubs.

Her actions and thoughts do not even remotely resemble what a rational person would do or think.

Here's a rundown of what she does in the first few chapters of the book(view spoiler)[She drives, at midnight, to the psychiatric hospital where her paranoid schizophrenic brother is kept so that she can literally take him aluminum foil for his next tin foil hat.

Why does she have to do it at midnight and not just wait for visiting hours you ask? On her way there, driving on a lonely mountain road naturally, she finds a body.

She has to drive on to the hospital to get help....once she gets there she totally forgets about the body.Instead of being afraid of this person, she gets in the elevator with him.Then 2 guards get on the elevator (and in a shocking lack of professionalism don't question why either one of these people is in the restricted section of the hospital after midnight) and the cute stranger is clearly anxious around the guards and starts squeezing Wollie's hand as if trying to communicate a message to her.She knows he doesn't belong there because he's not wearing shoes under his paper shoe covers and they don't do surgery at this hospital anyway, especially not at midnight.But she doesn't think he can be a bad guy because....he's got dimples and a rockin body!She jabbers away making embarrassing small talk and quirky comments when she ought to be fearing for her life and asking to be let go.Then they stop at a doughnut shop giving her a perfect opportunity to escape or call for help, but it doesn't even occur to her to do so because she's so enamored with this handsome kidnapper.Finding true love, she discovers, sometimes means learning how to avoid getting killed . Once in a while I'd get lucky and come across something that I really liked. I remember really enjoying it--finding it terribly quirky and funny--part mystery--part romance. Call it chick-lit if you will, but I thin Many years ago, I used to browse the library stacks to find things to read. Combining these three elements, the bases of this series, piqued my interest when I saw book #4 was on audio at my public library (everyone knows I’m addicted audiobooks).

I thought the heroine was going to be TSTL when she instantly falls for a potential murderer, but she held my attention.Lately, I've found the desire to revisit some of my past favorites to see if they still hold up to my memories.

Since Debbie, one of my GRs friends, has a fit every time I start a series out of order, I thought it might actually be worth the effort for me to arrange an interlibrary transfer via my computer (the easy part) and physically go (the hard part) to my Brick & Mortar Public Library to retrieve the first in the Wollie Shelley Mysteries available to me only in the Dead Tree Version (hardback). Got to love a woman named after an eighteenth century feminist (Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley) who keeps a Regency Romance in her jacket pocket – just in case there’s time to read it. That Wollie doesn’t find; there’s a lot happening in this book.I liked sentences like: “He hacked again, hard enough to rearrange his lungs.” I’ll keep you posted about the audiobook.It's funny - I love to read this author's blog, but this book was so all-over-the-place.
