Self-Published Sunday Debra Lee A Dangerous Woman
Just to clarify a few things: I didn’t put together a best of Self-Published novels for the quarter because I basically didn’t do any posts on them for all of January. I could not even put together a top ten if I tried, so I will combine it when I do the second quarter’s list; it will be fair that way. I hope that you have found by now that I am a big supporter of Self-Published authors and in no way shape or form mean any disrespect by not having a best of list this time around. Okay off to today’s novel. I read this on my Kindle, so what, pray tell is between the virtual covers?
“Fay Cunningham, publisher of a small-town Pennsylvania newspaper, is having a well-deserved midlife crisis. Both nicotine-and calorie-deprived, she stays busy delivering the paper she publishes in order to get closer to her customer base, craving inspiration, a smoke, and a cheeseburger. But she discovers something odd going on behind the closed doors of her trusted friend Joe Wise. Like, where is he and who is the mysterious blonde rudely blocking Fay’s entry to his house?
Adding to the puzzle, Fay learns that Joe’s brother and biggest rival, Thomas, has just died under strange circumstances. Joe was Fay’s professional benefactor and her journalistic instincts kick into overdrive. But first, she has to get past Angel, Joe’s hostile and secretive new companion. And when Fay’s questions get too personal, a killer makes lethal plans to send Fay into permanent retirement….”
Right from the start I have to say that the characters and the writing style of Debra Lee grew on me. It was fun, light hearted, campy, and well planned out and executed. Fay, her main character, is a hoot and I enjoyed following along to see what figurative pile of stuff she was going to step into next. The town in which this takes place has number of fun and quirky characters that made the read that much more fun and helped me click through the virtual at a pretty brisk pace. The plotline was nice and tight. There were enough twists and turns to make it real and I want to know what is coming next; she picked up a fan in me that is for sure. Debra was nice enough to drop off a guest post that I had put in on Tuesday’s posting schedule. If you haven’t read it please feel free to go back and check it out. It is a nice insight into the author.
