So, I finally finished a fantastic book that I received for free from Penguin Books as an “Advanced Reading Copy” to be reviewed by ME!! I was so thrilled to be asked to do my first review. I must admit, I’m an avid reader. I know this is new information to most of you who regularly read my blog, Just Add Water Silly.
Usually I’m waxing poetic about new amazing artists I’ve “discovered” on my travails through the blogosphere, or expounding on what fun it is to paint and have the outcome be just exactly what you wanted it to be. You are also probably used me interspersing these artistic centered posts with other posts about cool tools or new artist’s supplies or even explanations about artist’s techniques. What I have never done is review a book. Until today!
Now, back to my announcement. I L♥VE to read. I was actually kindly but mercilessly teased by friends and acquaintances alike about the fact that I was never without a book. Now that I have a Kindle it’s filled with hundreds of books that I’ve read or have yet to read. I love it. What a thrill to have a book just magically show up in my mailbox, asking to be read and reviewed. Yes! I’m on it!
- Charlie Grant claims she will be murdered in the next four days.
- She wants Boston’s best murder cop, Detective D.D Warren to investigate her upcoming death four days hence.
This is a “can’t put it down, read past your bedtime” kind of book. Gardner adds double twists, keeping the reader guessing until the very last page. A truly spectacular read, I can’t wait to peruse her other offerings. I’m hooked on this author and her fully developed characters!!Thank you to Penguin Books, I had needed a new author, they provided a perfect fit.
My suggestion, go to your local bookstore or Amazon.com and get this book. You won’t regret it. I’ll be back with a more art focused post soon.
We’ll talk, have coffee. K?
