Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mad Money (Madeline Carter Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
This is the best novel I have read in a while. I dont know why it has taken so long for Richards to come to my attention. She is an outstanding writer whose name should be mentioned in the same breathes as Michael Connelly, Lee Child, and Janet Evanovich. She is that good!
This is a 'fish out of water' type story about a lady stockbroker who witnesses the murder of a colleague and close friend. She cant recover emotionally and decides to change her life completely looking for peace and absolution. She moves to California. Instead of simplifying and smoothing her life takes a turn for the worse when she encounters and old flame who gives her a stock tip. She acts on it, to her immediate regret and this forms the plot for the rest of the story.
What makes this book so good is quality of Richards writing. The characterization, narrative, and dialogue is first rate and if I could give more than a 5, I would. The mystery itself is ok with adequate twists and turns.
Finally, I liked this so well that half way through this book I went online and bought the other two in the series. Higher praise cannot be given in the eworld!
DL this and enjoy!
