Cookin' the books,
This review is from: Cooking the Books: A Sloane Templeton Mystery (Paperback)
As a mystery/suspense lover, I'm always trying to find a new off-the-cuff type of book that deviates from my normal long list of reads. I like variety, and with Bonnie s. Calhoun's new release of Cooking the Books, I got just that.
Sloane Templeton has had her fair share of missteps in her life. Now she's taken on her recently passed mother's book store and she's not so sure this is what she really wants. One thing is for sure, she ain't letting no money-grubbing realty company steal away the place she calls home. And now the dirt has hit the fan.
Warding off threats to herself, her crazy aunt, and a a few men, Sloane keys up her computer forensic skills and tracks down a killer.
A great cast of characters, main and secondary. Bonnie's trademark snark comes through clear, and gives the story the right punch. Chuck-full of twists and action, Bonnie takes the mystery/suspense genre to a new level. Sloane has found a place among the bookshelf of kickin' heroines.
