I'm Jessie Humphries, a.k.a. the B-Word, and boy-oh-boy do I have a deal for you. Come on down to the corner of Hook Street and Deliver Boulevard in good ol' Las Vegas, Nevada where the book of your dreams is waiting for you. We will double your tax refund for your down payment, throw in 0% financing, and have you driving home with your shiny new thriller before you can say, "Jessie, you need medication!"
We'll even give you a free test drive! Here's the blurb:
When twenty-three-year-old Courtney Beckham is abducted near her home, the search turns up more than just a kidnapping crime. FBI agent Jason Edwards investigates the ten-million-dollar ransom and stumbles upon something he wasn't meant to find. And when Courtney catches a glimpse of the caller ID in her kidnapper's home, what she sees turns her world upside down.
Today is my day to highlight and review Rachelle Christensen's new thriller:
The book came out just this month, and I was totally honored when I was asked to participate in the blog tour. Especially since I loved Rachelle's first (award winning) thriller WRONG NUMBER. Plus, Rachelle is one of the nicest people I've ever met. Seriously, if you ever get the chance to meet her, or attend one of her presentations at a conference, you will be glad you did. She is lovely.
Okay, let's get down the nitty gritty, El Guapo-style. I know a book is good when I am reading it in the bath at 2 a.m., and the freezing cold water (and my husband) is screaming at me to get the hell out!
I liked this book for so many reasons that I am forced to bullet point this one out!
- Short chapters! Please authors of the world, do this! For me. For you. For the pacing health of all mankind. It makes me feel like I am getting somewhere. It makes me feel like there is reason to go on.
- Sexy male leads and hot bodies! Come on, I know there is not always a reason in real life for hot men to take their shirts off. But this is fiction! Take their shirts off. Well done Rachelle. There was sufficient topless moments for the hunky FBI Agent Jason Edwards. Not overdone in a werewolf kind of way, or a erotic kind of way, just some good clean gawking fun.
- Cliffhangers. I'm sorry but I need them like I need Diet Coke. I'm like a stupid mouse smelling the Coke-flavored-cheese--I will go into that trap to get it. Rachelle did an awesome job of luring me along the winding path.
