DATING IS TOUGH. ESPECIALLY IF THE GUY YOU LIKE MIGHT BE A SERIAL KILLER.
After a devastating heartbreak and a string of short-lived, failed relationships, college student Georgie Itoyama has now decided to approach dating in the same way that she approaches everything else: methodically, logically, and efficiently.
Georgie downloads countless dating apps, determined to find the love of her life as easily as she orders jeans online. And while her love-at-first-sight aspirations don’t exactly come true, she does find someone she likes. Quite a lot.
There’s only one problem. Girls are going missing at Georgie’s university, and all the signs are pointing to . . . him?
But that’s ridiculous. What are the chances that she’s dating an actual serial killer?
Then she matches with Nate. Mysterious, intelligent, and oddly fixated on solving the local disappearances. As Georgie’s relationships deepen with each of her guys, she unwittingly finds herself caught up in the mess that is murder, intrigue, and the nightmare of online dating.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
We’ve all been there. You match with a cute guy on a dating app, you hit it off over text, and you arrange to meet up. Everything feels fine until you remember that awful story your aunt told you once at Thanksgiving—the one where a young woman was murdered by someone she met online. Or the horror stories she’s read about how creepy dating apps can be. So you do some internet stalking before meeting up with aforementioned cute guy, just to make sure he’s not too Ted Bundy-ish. I mean, better safe than sorry, right?
And as an unfortunate veteran of most of the dating apps on the market, I’ve had quite a few of those moments. Because we all want to find love. While avoiding creepy stalkers and murderers. Naturally.
I wrote this book mainly because I was fed up with dating apps and wanted a platform to ruthlessly mock them (while also entertaining all those “what if?” moments when I’ve gone on a date with someone I probably shouldn’t have).
Anyway, I’m willing to bet that you relate. So go ahead and read the book. I promise it’s a fun time. 😉
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I based all my characters off of real dates (good or bad) that I've actually had!
I laugh, and Ash finally breaks too, standing closer until he’s inches away from me. I look up at him, his forehead almost resting against my own. “You really gonna make out with a boring, nonbusiness-owning shop girl? You’re putting your gold-digging aspirations to shame,” I say.
“I don’t know about that boring part, but yes, I am totally going to make out with you,” he replies.
I giggle, but then he’s already kissing me. He deftly sets our coffees aside on the counter, and then presses me against the nearest bookshelf. His hand glides along my cheek and into my hair, and I can feel him smiling against my lips.
There’s this moment of suspension, like time means nothing, like we could stay here forever and I’d never notice, never miss anything else. And I remember now why I wanted a boyfriend again. The best thing about this whole process, the element I missed the most. Not the fun dates, not the flirty banter, not even the kissing, per se, but this. This feeling of going crazy. Like losing your mind on purpose.
