Saturday was hectic, we celebrated one of my kid’s birthdays and that required some effort on my part–baking a cake, cooking dinner, cleaning house…where are my witch powers when I need them?”
Sunday was quieter which was great for me! I needed to catch my breath.
So have you guys heard some of the talk about Linda Howard’s book DEATH ANGEL? I finished reading the book last week and it left me unsure how I felt about it. I absolutely commend Linda Howard for doing something different, and I’m glad a read the book.
The book is about a woman of questionable character who is the mistress of a drug lord. Basically, she’s a bimbo. The drug lord “gives” her to a stone cold killer for sex as payment. The killer ends up being the hero of the book. I was totally into this story for two thirds of the way through.
Then the story takes a dramatic and shocking twist, causing first the heroine to have an epiphany that significantly changes her. When the hero finds her again, he too has a life changing epiphany. Oddly, I wasn’t quite as engaged in the last third of the book, but I did still want to finish it.
I think the book was different and interesting. While I saw that some people were angry in reviews (I read them AFTER I read the book), I personally love it when authors go for it, try something different, twist the story into a whole new surprising direction.
So have any of you read the book? What do you feel about author trying new or different stories? And finally, how was your weekend?
