What Men Say sees Loretta Lawson involved in a police investigation following the discovery of a body at her best friend's house. The action takes place in Oxford, stamping ground of fictional detective Inspector Morse, who is given a nod in the story.
I thought the book might be subtitled "and what women don't say", since the story revolves around the relationship between Loretta and her friend Bridget. Loretta's loyalty to her friend is evident, but Bridget is clearly keeping secrets. The normally inquisitive Loretta chooses to repress her curiosity and leave the investigation to the police.
I was frustrated by the actions of some characters, but enjoyed the portrayal of the relationship between Loretta and Bridget.
