A Second Chance at Murder

A Love or Money Mystery, #2

“A Second Chance at Murder” by Diana Orgain is a fun twist on the challenges of a reality show and provides a combination of exotic travelogue and mystery. I had not read the first story in this series but had no problem becoming familiar with these characters and learning about their history. It was so much fun to see a twist on the challenges that bring folks to a foreign country and provide puzzles to parse out. It was a bit surprising to see the interconnections of those participating in the show but I imagine this scenario is not rare, and I am curious about both the events that came before this story and those that are yet to come. This is the first story I have read by this author and I am happy to add a new name to my list of folks to be on the lookout for.

This cozy mystery is part of the ‘Love or Money Mystery’ series and follows reality show contestant Georgia Thornton who has come to Spain with her boyfriend Scott, seeking to win a new contest. Unfortunately, Scott’s disappearance complicates things, particularly when he becomes a suspect in a murder. Georgia not only needs to win the prize money, but more importantly, she needs to find Scott, or at least clear his name, but neither task is going to be easily achieved…especially when her competitors seem to be determined to win at any cost.

In the latest from the USA Today bestselling author of A First Date with Death, reality TV gets all too real with murder...

After Love or Money made them reality TV stars, former cop Georgia Thornton and her new boyfriend Scott were supposed to live happily ever after. Unfortunately as their fifteen minutes of fame came to an end, actual reality kicked in and their prize money quickly evaporated.

So Georgia and Scott agree to appear in a new program, pitting them against other teams in an athletic journey across the countryside of Spain for a chance to win $250,000. But the fierce competition turns frightening when Scott disappears during an overnight camping trip in the Pyrenees Mountains, leaving only his bloody wristwatch behind—and a woman’s dead body.

With the Spanish authorities ready to convict Scott, Georgia must find him and prove his innocence in an amazing race against crime…
