Xanadu spent 30 years in the FBI. At one time she was one of the best … but then she picked up a bottle and never put it down. Her drinking cost her everything, especially the job that she loved. Now ‘retired’, she spends her days with her lover, Em, and going to meetings. She’s been sober almost a year.
A pair of young newlyweds stumbles across something called the Serendipity Group. This is an organization that helps victims take revenge on those who have wronged them in some way. The group’s hit list lands in the newlyweds’ hands. Bottom of the list reveals Xanadu’s name.
Xanadu has a long, long list of people that may have a grudge against her. But who? And Why?
To be honest, I did not like the character of Xanadu. She comes across as arrogant, which surprised me considering where she is in her life and all the mistakes that she has made. When the local police step in, she treats them as though they are bumbling fools and she knows everything.
The book started off with a bang … I really liked the newlyweds, who had no idea of what was going on. They became a pivotal point of importance. It seemed to bog down a bit in the middle … but then picked up again. The ending was a huge surprise and just blew me away. Because of that ending, I upgraded my review rating.
Many thanks to the author / Random House Publishing Group – Alibi / NetGalley who provided a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
Scott and Crystal McCormick had their honeymoon delayed due to bad weather in Paris, their final destination. An airline sponsored layover at the Peachtree Marriot would have been a fine way to pass the time, if not for a "too good to be true scenario" that leaves the couple with an unexpected and unwelcome change of plans. Xanadu Marx, an almost 30 former employee of the FBI, becomes involved in the investigation that follows. Out on parole after getting railroaded by the very people that she served with, Xana quickly realizes that the situation is more complicated than she first thought. Targeted by a group that helps victims exact revenge on those who wronged them, Xana has to do what it takes to help the police before it is too late.
A sequel to Cost of Life, Forgive Me builds upon the foundation laid in the previous installment featuring Xanadu Marx. As much of the character development occurred in book 1, I would not recommend reading this out of sequence. Xana is a flawed character, fighting to gain back the life she lost under very difficult circumstances. The major plot line, involving the Serendipity Group, was not all that original, but I still enjoyed the book regardless of that fact. Not as strong as book 1, Forgive Me is a good police procedural that readers of books in the genre will like.
A young newlywed couple are on their way to France for their honeymoon when they end up waylaid in Atlanta due to a flight delay. A stranger overs them a room upgrade to his suite. They happily accept, but nothing is free and the room upgrade comes at a cost that they never could have anticipated.
Then add in Xana is a disgraced former FBI agent that was terminated after driving drunk into a house. She is nearing one year of sobriety, but then her name turns up on a hit list. Xana could be described as user hostile, so the list of people she's hurt is long. One of them is out to get her, but which one?
All they have in common is the Serendipity Group - an organization that none of them had heard of before, but that will change all of their lives.
If you enjoy thrillers, you will love this book. I strongly recommend it to fans of the genre. I have added the author to my must read authors' list.
This is a story about a couple on there honeymoon- trying to get to Paris. Along the the way people are getting are getting killed and one person place the couple in his place so that he didnt killed. There is so much going on and a whole lot of murder. But does the couple make it out alive?
First let me say:
As a bookseller, how can I recommend a book that is not available in paper. Not everyone reads eBooks. The author is wonderful and I should be able to hand sell his books all the time. Having read Cost of Life first, I have to admit that anything he writes I am going to read. I love suspense, and books that are "outside the box". This was a deep story with lots of twists and turns and well worth your time in reading. (well only if you are an e Reader)
