O Nghi Nghi من عند دوس، تكساس، الولايات المتحدة
واحد من كتبي المفضلة في كل العصور. أنا أحب ذلك أكثر في كل مرة قرأته. (بالطبع هناك أجزاء منه تثير المشاكل ... عندما أدرسها ، أحاول دائمًا بذل الكثير من الجهد لإعطاء السياق تأصيله في زمانه ومكانه ، وأيضاً لعدم السماح للطلاب ، خاصة الطلاب البيض ، بالابتعاد من هذا الكتاب التفكير ، "yay ، العنصرية كلها ثابتة الآن.")
Edie Swann heads back to her hometown, Redbud, with one intention only -and that is revenge. She has a list given to her by her dying aunt that has the five names of the men that her father had dealings with shortly before his tragic death. Her only problem is that someone starts off-ing these men making her the main suspect in their murders. Local lawman and the man that makes Edie's heart race - Holt Drennen is handling the death cases of these prominent Redbud residents... but are they accidental deaths or murders? As his feelings for Edie grow so do his suspicions of her somehow being involved. This book can be emotional when it delves into Edie's insecurities and fears. Although on the outside she might look tough riding a Harley, tattoos all over and wearing leather - she is rather fragile on the inside. She is a strong character that has to overcome her past and learn to live for herself and her future. While spine-tingling is not a word that is usually associated with romance Annie Solomon makes it so by her masterful descriptions of these crimes. The not over descriptive intimate love scenes are frequent and varied throughout this read - add in a mysterious murderer, and you have a true page-turner. There were some interesting plot lines, and the narrative was good enough to keep me intrigued, sometimes to push me to go to the next chapter when I know I should stop and go to bed. It definitely had me guessing as to the twists and turns it was going to take and I was never able to guess whodunnit until the very end. Overall, I enjoyed the book as a nice little romantic suspense read and would definitely recommend it.
