pick up a book because it sounds good, but then decide that you really don’t want to read it? I have a bad habit of this. My latest pick up regret was Erica Spindler’s Last Known Victim. I wanted to read it until I had it in my hand. Then it took me a week to begin reading it. I read the first three chapters, and while they were good, I still had no enthusiasm for the book.
Last night I decided it’s now or never (which really wasn’t an option) and made the plunge. The book was great! It had enough whodunit to enthrall me and that’s not even mentioning the wacked out ending. I’m giving this book a thumbs up. I didn’t realize the detective in it was the sister to the victim in See Jane Die. (Not that it matters; it’s just interesting to see the subtle tie-in. If you didn’t read Jane’s story, don’t worry the book mentions her name in passing.)
I’ll be writing my review for it to be posted at Romance Designs this week and just wanted to give it a shout out here first. Last Known Victim will be released in October.
