Title: Unmanned

Author: Lois Greiman

Type: Paperback

Book Type: Mystery

Pages: 307

Synopsis: Christina McMullen has a history of people trying to kill her. But she's still shocked when a total stranger is gunned down and killed in front of her home. The real trouble starts when her brother Pete comes to town and tells her about his pregnant girlfriend, impending marriage ... oh and the fact that he borrowed money from a mobster named "D". Christina has always thought that family will be the death of her and now, on top of that revelation, she needs to find a killer who means to hurt them both.
My Thoughts: This book wasn't nearly as funny or as good as the other Greiman book that I read a few months ago ("One Hot Mess") which also featured the same main character, psychologist Christina McMullen. This book took a long time to pick up steam and actually start the mystery. The main character is very likable but the secondary characters aren't as colourful as I would have liked (like Janet Evanovich's Grandma Mazur or Lula who make those books). Overall, it was a decent read but nothing special.

My Rating: 2.5/5 (just an OK read)
