About the only good thing Sam had in her life was her cat.
Then one day Milton walks into her office door with his cane and his fedora. It turns out he is the manager of a multi-million dollar pop star and he wants Sam to find out who is stalking his client. The job pays so well Sam can't turn it down. Little does Sam know she will soon be risking her life as she delves into a twisting tale of drugs, sex, and murder.
Sam is the kind of non-assuming heroine that I couldn't help but love. She's pretty but she doesn't realize it. She's smart, but she second-guesses herself when it comes to her ex-husband. She's brave, but sometimes too brave, and she ends up in some hair-raising situations. Thankfully, she can fire a gun like a sharp-shooter.
This story pulled me in and wouldn't let go. I never saw the twists and turns in the plot coming, and by the satisfying ending I was happily adding this author to my short list of writers to watch. Bravo!
Characters: Characters are the main reason I read a story, no matter how good a story is, if the characters are weak I don't keep reading. Sam was not a cliche 'vulnerable' girl she was tough and fought bravely against the inner demons which shaped who she was. She was a character that was honest with who she was--and well realistic. The other characters had their own voices and were well developed as well. I enjoyed the background and realism in which she wove in her ex-lover and the abusive co-dependentr relation ship--again real. Sam was not a victim and got things done.
General Impression: I have to say that at first I was not sure what I was getting into, There are soo many P.I. books out there. After a while the characters grew on me and the plot 'thickened' as they say. The book was a quick read and to the point, I read it in a about three days. Once I got a few chapters in I liked it and I have to admit I might read another one..
The book is professionally edited with few if any errors, the plot is suspenseful and the overall story is truly engaging. Sam’s Song has it all – suspense, drama and hope. Throughout the novel the author navigates the reader through a suspenseful investigation while experiencing a rollercoaster ride of humor, frustration, anger and love. For me, the characters made the plot realistic... each character had flaws, which made their story even more genuine and enjoyable. Even lovable, caring Dr. Storey had some baggage he was struggling to overcome. I would definitely recommend it to others and look forward to reading the next book in this series.
Characters are important; probably the most important element in any book I read. I was very impressed with the protagonist, Sam, for a couple of reasons. First she was three dimensional with flaws, vulnerabilities, and a few surprising traits, when she really got going.
Her private life was tarnished, her professional life was in trouble, financially, and to begin with we meet a bit of a lost soul, dealing with an abusive husband.
Like all good stories, however, this one manages to bring Sam's fighting spirit out, during the course of the pages, without her becoming a super heroine, or wooden. Her dialogue was sharp and at times, humorous. I enjoyed the ensemble of characters. All were nicely developed, and made sense. In no way were they black and white.
This was a well written story, with enough twists to keep me guessing. There was no fluff, just good storytelling, from beginning to end.
The best part now, is that there are more books in the series, and I will definitely be following them right to the end.
