Thursday Thoughts on Reading and Writing

I know, I know, I reviewed this book recently but have discovered I have another coy so I'll have another drawing. When you leave a comment on THIS post by 6 p.m. CT Sunday May 20, 2012 you'll be entered in the drawing for a copy of the book I review below. You must be eighteen, U.S. mailing addresses only, void where prohibited.

Organized Grime by Christy Barritt

Christy Barritt is an award-winning author, freelance writer, and speaker.The second book in the Squeaky Clean Series, Suspicious Minds, won the 2009 Daphne de Maurier award for Excellence in Mystery and Suspense. Christy lives in Virginia with her husband and two sons. For more information about Christy's other books and projects, visit here.

From the book's back cover:
Crime scene cleaner and wannabe forensic investigator Gabby St. Claire knows her best friend, Sierra, isn't guilty of killing three people in what appears to be an ecoterrorist attack. But Sierra has disappeared, her only contact a frantic phone call.

Crime scene evidence Gabby discovers while cleaning tie seemingly random murders together--and point to Sierra as the guilty party. Just what has her animal-loving friend gotten herself into?

If that's not disturbing enough, who's the person following Gabby? A federal agent who hopes Gabby will lead him to Sierra? Or someone with more sinister plans. To find Sierra and prove her innocence, Gabby will have to rely on all of her training and abilities, plus the help of a man she loves and the protection of a God she's only recently begun to believe in.

From Jo:
If you enjoy reading mysteries, this book is for you. While trying to prove her friend innocent of all charges, Gabby follows every lead, some good, some dead ends. Well written suspenseful, develops Gabby's personality quite well. You won't have this one figured out till at the very end!
