Conversation stops as my husband stares at me and asks, “How do you know that?”
There I stand, once again flummoxed that not everybody knows whatever random nugget of information just popped into conversation.
It can only mean one thing.
I read it in a book.
While it’s true that I love a good fantasy realm, many of my favorite books are grounded in fascinating reality.
Murder mystery and romance set amongst the facets of everyday life.
Not my everyday life but someone who lives in a different area. Works a different job. Lives a different life.
A single, childless, woman living in England who works as TV news reporter?
Yup, that’ll do for different!
While I hope never to be enmeshed in a murder mystery in any way, I suspect the life and times of a TV news journalist will filter to the surface from time to time. Once again conversation will stop as my husband gives me that questioning look.
“Oh” I’ll say, “I read about that in The Dead Dog Day.”
Would I recommend it? The beginning had me hooked. The end was riveting. I felt that the action fell off a bit in the middle as we muddled through the who-done-it with the main character, but it was consistently fun to hear about shenanigans at the news station.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I discovered this book because I’m a proud member of Rosie’s Book Review Team!
