Good afternoon readers and friends and welcome. I want to thank author Jenny Frame for stopping by last week. Also thanks to all of you for your support.
Today, I have a special treat for you. A few months ago, I interviewed author Erin Wade and for those of you who missed it, you can click on the link below. Recently, I read her book, ‘Death Was Too Easy’, and today I’m reviewing it. I invite you to join in and participate in the comments.
This story is brilliantly written. The main characters are Judith and Mandy and Angie. Along with them are Jordan and Rick, who play key roles.
Judith is a judge who is lonely. She is a conservative who wants to restore justice. However, she has a soft hidden side to her that she wishes to express. And it is no coincidence when Mandy enters her life that her maternal instincts emerge. But there is a price.
Angie is a teen who escaped an abusive relationship. I found her to be a great character because she is sweet and would never hurt anyone. You will find out more about her as you read along.
Like Judith, Mandy wants nothing more than to restore justice for the community. She is a lawyer who has dedicated herself to a life of service. She carries herself well and is respected. She is my definition of being ‘sharp.’ She fits her role perfectly.
Judith and Mandy experience love and romance in a sweet and passionate way. Mandy meets up with Jordan and the flirting begins. I love stories that have this aspect to them. The sensual scenes are described in such a way, that you can visualize without them being too graphic.
Mandy is charmed when a second interest, Rick comes into play. He is very persistent with a magnetic personality. He is smooth talking and did add good drama to the story.
In the midst of this is a mystery case, involving both Judith and Mandy. A twist pops up that will blow you away, so you’re going to need to pay attention. I was locked in as the story moved along. The plot kept me wondering throughout.
Some scenes described were graphic and shocking. There is abusive action and I had to put the book down to catch my breath. Then another surprise to this deep story emerges, creating more spectacle. You are going to want to set aside about six hours to read this because you are not going to want to put it down once you start. Be prepared for the unexpected ending. Whew!
I have included an excerpt to get you started. Enjoy.
Jordon drove to her office. She knew she wouldn’t be able to sleep. Thoughts of Mandy Kincaid were racing through her mind. She tried to ignore the scenes that continuously played behind her closed eyelids.
Mandy Kincaid wasn’t just beautiful; she was excruciatingly gorgeous. The feelings she stirred in Jordon were achingly painful. Her beauty fueled the fantasies of men and women.
Jordon changed into shorts and a light t-shirt. Five miles on the treadmill should send her into an exhausted sleep. She searched for the reason she had kissed Mandy. She was certain the attorney was straight. The shocked look on Mandy’s face haunted her. The last thing Jordon needed was to become involved with the prudish blonde, but it was the thing she most wanted. She thought about a line written by poet Sylvia Plath; I desire the things which will destroy me in the end. Plath committed suicide at age thirty.
Jordon was certain an entanglement with Mandy Kincaid would destroy them both.
Thank you for stopping by. Like I mentioned above, I’m encouraging book discussion in the comments. Stay tuned for next week when I will be speaking with author Kathy L. Salt. Her new book, ‘Out of Hand’ is now available.
