Wollie Shelley is a greeting card artist struggling to keep afloat financially and to pursue—despite a series of recent disasters—the search for the love of her life. She reluctantly agrees to be a contestant on the reality television show Biological Clock. The show’s premise: six eligible singles date each other, and the audience votes on which couple would make the best parents. Alas, Wollie isn’t having much luck finding a man she’d like to date “off the air,” much less father her child. As the biological clock ticks away, Wollie gets caught up in a much more pressing demand on her time. Her friend Annika has vanished into thin air and Wollie is convinced that she’s in grave danger.

When Wollie reports the disappearance to the Los Angeles Police Department, however, the detective assigned to the case seems more interested in dating Wollie than in finding her friend. So Wollie springs into action—and lands right in the middle of an FBI investigation into an international drug cartel. She soon finds herself being stalked by an assortment of threatening characters, including her fellow television contestants, who will stop at nothing to beat the clock.
Read A Review:

Wollie Shelley creates greeting card sayings, but she’s also an artist. Currently she’s painting a mural for friends while they are on their honeymoon. Her friends talk her into being a game show contestant on the reality TV show Biological Clock. The three female contestants each date the three male contestants. The audience will vote on which couple would make the best parents, but the winners do not have to have a baby.

Wollie’s friend Annika, who also helped out behind the scenes at Biological Clock, has vanished, and Wollie is convinced she’s in danger. Annika’s mother calls from overseas, and Wollie decides to help. She begins interviewing the family Annika was an Au Pair for. The police don’t take her disappearance seriously. The detective seems interested in Wollie, not Annika’s disappearance.

Wollie finds herself being stalked by various characters. She ends up in the middle of an FBI investigation. As she continues to investigate to find Annika, she finds herself getting deeper and deeper in danger. Will she be able to find Annika without putting herself in grave danger? Is someone on the show connected to Annika’s disappearance? Can she finish out the show?

I really like Wollie. She is so much fun. She gets herself into many interesting situations, and it’s always fun seeing how she’ll get out. Her friends are great as well. I like the setting of LA for these novels. I really adds character to the story.

This is a fun chick lit, cozy mystery and I highly recommend it. Be aware. You won’t be able to put it down as you’ll want to know what happens to Wollie next.
