I am gearing up for the holidays and in a book buying mood. What better way to get started than to have a book sale?! I have had such fabulous response to my Romantic Suspense MATERIAL WITNESS. Recently Kirkus Reviews gave MATERIAL WITNESS a starred review and I couldn't be happier. Here is the review.
Cassie Alvarez, a mystery writer in
Providence, R.I., is smart, funny and attractively down to earth. She's also on
deadline and in need of inspiration. In search of fresh material, Maureen, her
editor, suggests that Cassie dress alluringly and hang out in an infamous
underworld bar. Cassie realizes the absurdity of Maureen's idea too late, but
she still feels game after spotting hunky undercover cop Jake Santos. Jake can
tell right away that Cassie is no prostitute, and if she doesn't get herself out
of the seedy dive where he's waiting to meet an informant, she might get hurt.
Just as their flirtation threatens to get heavy, gunfire rips apart the bar.
When the smoke clears, a local mobster lies in a pool of blood, and Jake
realizes that Cassie is the only one who got a good look at the killer. Soon the
duo is on the run with, and later without, FBI protection, and the spark they
first felt at the bar slowly kindles a roaring passion. Mondello brings terrific
enthusiasm to this material; Cassie, the sassy heroine, is immensely likable,
Jake, the dreamboat, is also a thoughtful cop, and their passion feels genuine.
Action scenes are taut, while snappy dialogue manages to be by turns tough and
cute. The supporting cast provides the right number of red herrings...the real
hook is the nimble tone that shifts from breezy to thrilling and back again with
Terrific escapist entertainment, as good as
anything in Janet Evanovich's oeuvre." - Kirkus Reviews (starred
