Title: Classic Murder: Mr. Romance
Author: Mary Martinez
Stars: 3 1\2
Classic Murder: Mr. Romance is a traditional romance story with a mystery thrown in to give the characters a reason to be together.
The story has a decent flow but the story tries to pull off a Carey Grant style characters but he falls just a little flat. It has the feel of Dial M for murder but doesn't quite pull off the charm of that the author might have been hoping for. At least with this review>
The author tries to create humors moments which work but also some fall flat. The story is cute, with sex after the characters have developed a relationship.

Katie Sinclair, Adam’s executive assistant, knows he’s innocent. With his airtight alibis, the police are also at a loss.
