At the starting line in Monte Carlo, Amy finds herself attracted to Marcus Alvarez, the most mysterious of her two dozen game-loving clients. But the rally gets off to a rocky start when an eccentric writer, the only person who knows the game's solution, is himself murdered back in New York.
So who would kill a harmless mystery geek? And why are weird accidents beginning to happen along the way? To her horror, Amy discovers that this fictional mystery was based on a real, unsolved case, one that Marcus knows too much about. Now she has no choice but to join forces with Fanny, her domineering mother, and solve this on her own, before the killer strikes again.

Better than I thought.
Let me explain....
The first part of the book, I wasn't loving the story.I didn't dislike it either, it was just puzzling for me at times.I figured the story had to come together, somewhere, somehow, and then it did.
Once all the pieces starting falling into place and making sense, the story really picked up. I was then enjoying it a lot more.
There was a lot of humor, and a very clever way the story was woven together.
Okay, the mystery part I liked, a lot in fact. It was the Rally aspect that gets lost for me. Thankfully, it's in the beginning of the book in the part I didn't get, and doesn't last long. Other than that, a decent read.
