Seriously power packed day here @ Gelati’s Scoop. I have another page turner here but it is of the virtual pages that I speak this time: Jodi Langston and her novel Nature of The Beast. I want to get right the particulars of the novel so as not to waste any more time or virtual ink:
“When the doors open at the Star Light Casino in Brody, Minnesota, a serial killer turns it into his hunting ground. The challenge of two unsolved murders and a chance at a fresh start prompts maverick cop Nick Dempsey to leave L. A. and his actress girlfriend Kathy Tyler behind. This lone wolf must learn to be a team player when he takes the job of Sheriff.
After a one night stand with her ex-husband Kathy follows Nick to Minnesota. Tempers flare when Kathy arrives in Brody to find Nick has taken a new lover, Angie Reynolds, a beauty nearly half his age. Fearing for Kathy’s safety Nick moves her into his house. Kathy finds herself a new playmate in Nick’s Deputy Ben. Nick and Kathy struggle with their strained relationship as they both date other people.
As Brody celebrates Heritage Days Nick has his hands full with a town full of tourists, a serial killer and two angry girlfriends. Victim number three is found alive but lapses into a coma and is unable identify her attacker. Deputy Russ Thompson finds a clue at the crime scene. Russ struggles with his decision to remain silent about what he found.
A violent storm descends on Brody putting everyone’s nerves on edge. When both women turn up missing Nick must use all his skills to figure out who the killer is before one of his women becomes the next victim.”
Okay, I think that you should have an idea now what is inside this very swift moving novel. My enjoyment of it was a myriad of things: the dialogue was fun and got me emotionally invested in her characters, it had all the right elements for a mystery/romance, thriller type of novel, the action and pacing was something that totally surprised me. Wait; don’t take that the wrong way. Nature of the Beast is the first novel of hers I have read. I try not to have a preconceived notion in my mind when I start to read a novel, so I was surprised at the fact that I still have my finger indentations on the sides of my laptop. The use of the word surprise is meant as a complement, nothing more.
The ereading thing I am beginning to warm up to. This novel certainly heightened my experience, and made me enjoy it more. If you haven’t had a read on a Jodi Langston novel please don’t hesitate to do so, I have found that reading her novels are fun and exciting, that is just the Nature of The Beast.
