I remember hearing a lot about this book throughout the blogosphere so when I was at the library and spotted it, I decided to pick it up and give it a try. However, I was a little disappointed with it and can only rate a B-.
Pulled from her bed by an early morning phone call from her boss, local New Haven, Connecticut, police reporter Annie Seymour finds herself at a crime scene staring at the naked body of a Yale student. What starts out as bad news for the prestigious university gets worse when Annie learns the girl was a student by day and a high-priced escort by night. Stonewalled by her cop boyfriend and tailed by overeager and incompetent cub reporter Dick Whitfield, Annie stumbles onto a network of corruption that everyoneeven her own motherseems to be involved in. But Annie isnt the only one investigating; a Frank Sinatra look-alike who used to be the biggest geek in Annies high school is also hot on the trail. As if things werent bizarre enough, New Haven is being infiltrated by a parade of ceramic cows. When her boss decides to pull Annie off the story, she must discover the truth on her own before she becomes the next headline.
I can't just pinpoint what exactly I didn't like about this book. I think there were so many characters thrown in and I had a difficult time following who was who. I also didn't really like Annie and her attitude. She just seemed so pessimistic and it get a bit annoying. It wasn't a horrible book, but I probably will not remember much about it or look for anything else by this author.
Next up is a book by one of my favorite author's Diana Diamond. These books are always suspensful and really show how evil some people can be. I am not sure which one I will read as I have two to choose from. This weekend may prove to be a bit busy, but I do plan to get a lot of reading in. I hope everyone is as well and Happy Reading!
