Love.com by RW Bennet is a fast-paced mystery about a new dating site that's too good to be true. Paul Latimer, a wealthy man who wants to be wealthier, buys Love.com and sets a plan into motion. Members of this dating site won't have any fees to pay until, (and after), they find the one and tie the knot. The company even provides perks like wine, reservations, and gifts for added romance. Sounds great right? Until clients end up dead after meeting "the one".
Marsha Underwood is hired by Paul as Love.com's Marketing Director, and brings her father in to prepare questionnaires for the site's users. All seems kosher until Marsha sees the statistics. How is it possible that every user of Love.com finds their "soul-mate"? This question leads Martha and her father to an investigation that could leave both of them toe-tagged.
I received Love.com from LibraryThing Member Giveaways and found the story-line to be quite enjoyable. I really liked the premise since it seems like the internet is the new frontier of dating. The characters were relatable, but I would have liked to see a little more personality, especially during conversations between the characters. I felt that the dialogue was a little lacking and had some flow problems, but for the most part it was easy to follow. The only other problem I had was with the rough tie-up of the ending; it seemed like the resolution was rushed and crammed into the last three pages. Still a very entertaining and quick read. Overall, I thought that this was a great first novel by RW Bennet.
