Death by Denim - Linda Gerber
Aphra Connolly is being chased by some very dangerous people. She knows her survival depends upon staying far away from love interest Seth, and listening to her mom’s lectures on the finer points of anonymity and survival. But how is a girl supposed to live under the radar and not think about her boyfriend when she’s in Paris—the most romantic city in the world? When her mom’s contact in Paris is found floating in the Seine with a deadly message stuffed in his mouth, Aphra realizes that she will never be able to stop running unless she confronts the situation head-on. Sneaking away from her mom, Aphra tracks down the criminal mastermind in Italy, only to unwittingly reveal Seth’s location. And her mistake has just put them both in mortal danger. . . .
Review: Note that I am trying my best not to give spoilers for all three books.
Characters: From the beginning of this series I have loved Aphra and Seth's characters. Meeting the new characters that were introduced in this one was also nice. They were described nicely and I got a real good taste of what they were like early on.
Plot: The plot of the Death By... series is very original, and that's why I like them so much. Gerber does a really nice job with mixing the action filled mystery part of the story with the romance, and I think that's why I enjoy it so much. All I can say after this book is that I hope Gerber writes more. Hopefully more in this series, but if not this series, hopefully more mystery/romance books in general. I'm most definitely a fan.
Wow Factor: Again, very wowed with this book as well as the whole series. Five hearts.
