“The book is peppered with dreams and daydreams in which our romance-loving protagonist perpetually indulges. Each one more silly than the last, and they get downright funny when Cassandra’s “real life” begins to intrude upon her fantasies. The story is one of personal growth and the conflict between fantasy and reality, and is cleverly written with wit.”
…and working on a writing deadline (tomorrow, June 1st!) AND still recovering from road weariness. So this is gonna be a shorty. I just wanted to share reviews of my book and Jess’s that I found on Seattle Press Online:
Dana Fredsti & Jess Lourey Book Signings
Dana Fredsti’s “Murder for Hire” centers on a semi-fictional theatrical group that is best known for murder mystery role-playing … until one night, when the line between acting and real life becomes blurred.
The novel is a well-executed throwback to the era of film noir dramas of the late 1940’s: fedora, trenchcoats, stylish heroines and all.
“August Moon” is the fourth novel in the successful “Murder-by-Month” series by Jess Lourey. Readers will enjoy the events that ripple through the seemingly tranquil town of Battle Lake, Minnesota. A refreshingly strong heroine steps into the role of detective in this scorching summer mystery.
