So many good books and so little time! But, as a writer, I’m a big advocate of reading a wide variety of books.
Here are two that are currently
and patiently waiting to be read on my GoodReads list.
The Rise and Fall of a ‘Casino’ Mobster.
Crime Buff’s Guide to Outlaw Southwest.
But wait! There’s more! 🙂
I just finished a book called Exit by Twist Phelan! You may recall she was a guest on my podcast the Crime Cafe!
Anyhoo, here’s my review:
And here’s the transcription!
Hi, Debbi Mack here, and I’m reviewing EXIT by Twist Phelan. I read it on my Kindle, so I can’t show you a book cover, except this way. That’s the cover, and it’s the second Finn Teller Corporate Spy Mystery by Twist Phelan. And I read the first in the series, so I was really looking forward to reading the second, and I wasn’t disappointed at all. In fact, the main character Finn Teller goes from the world of corporate spying into international Intrigue really. She goes to Greece, where the prime minister’s daughter has been kidnapped in plain view. It’s all very mysterious. But she gets involved in this situation in trying to rescue the girl and deliver the ransom money, and it turns out to be much more complicated than she had imagined, of course. There are issues of family that come up–Finn’s family–and Twist Phelan does a great job of just filling out this character and with just a few scenes that take place, explaining a lot about why she has such difficulty with relationships with men and commitment in general. And she’s a tough, wonderful character, Finn Teller, who I think readers will love. If you enjoy thrillers with strong female protagonists, this is a wonderful series I think. And if you enjoyed the first book FAKE, you will be, I think, very happy with the second. I know I was. So I highly recommend this book to Twist Phelan fans and thriller fans in general. That’s about it, and I’ll talk to you next time.
And one more thing … 🙂
