"An entertaining, sit-com style mystery"

After working 12 years as a cocktail waitress while completing her psychology degree, Chrissy McMullen and moved to LA with her friend 'Brainy' Laney who acts as her secretary/receptionist in- between acting gigs. When the famous football star Andrew "Bomber" Bombstead arrives for an appointment, Chrissy feels her new career has become established. Her shock when "Bomber" attempts to rape her during a session is compounded when in the aftermath she finds herself the #1 suspect in his murder.

Detective Jack Rivera is more than skeptical of Chrissy's version of events. Since there is no flavor of ice cream to cure being a murder suspect, Chrissy decides to do some investigating of her own. So begins a series of contretemps and misadventures mixed with attraction and skepticism that make this an entertaining sit-com style mystery.

The promise of romance throughout the story despite personal differences is entertaining. The past and family relationships are hinted at but not fully explained which left a noticeable gap, but hopefully as the series progresses we will learn more [Like why not have mom come when she's hurt?]

For those like me who enjoyed the secondary characters of Elaine 'Brainy Laney' Butterfield and J.G. "GeekMaster" Solberg, you will be happy to know they will provide more adventures in UNPLUGGED [May 2006] during the continuing adventures of Chrissy McMullen, LA Psychologist. For those who enjoy Stephanie and Ryker in Janet Evanovich's mysteries, I recommend you investigate Chrissy and Jack's story in UNZIPPED.
