In Sherryl Woods’ Hot Money, the third book in the Molly DeWitt Romantic Mystery Series, Molly DeWitt and detective Michael O’Hara are back to investigate a murder at the “Save the Environment” black-tie fundraiser. Molly and Michael are only in attendance at the posh event because of the insistence of Molly’s friend, Liza, who was one of the organizers. But when Molly and Michael sneak away from the party to sit quietly on the dock for a while, they discover the body of Tessa Lafferty, a wealthy socialite, floating in the water. Before her death, Tessa was the chairwoman and head organizer of the extravagant affair, and now it is up to Molly and Michael to discover her killer.
As the two investigate the mystery further, they discover that Tessa was not the kind-hearted philanthropist she appeared to be…and any one of her former—and current—lovers could be the killer. It’s a mystery that only Michael and Molly can solve as they also continue to explore the possibilities of their own relationship.
