After packing away all my old notes and draft copies of my previous novel, my desk space is finally clear and uncluttered, meaning my head is too. I am finally getting stuck into my new novel (as yet untitled). I am beyond excited about this one, as it is a story line I have wanted to tackle for a while – and I think MacReady is ready to deal with it, despite his increasingly complicated life hitting another huge wall.
So, on to some other novels that have been attracting my attention over the last seven days. Find out which made it on to the poll this week, and which one won last week
Here’s this week’s Poll:
Here’s the result of last week’s Poll:
A good spread of votes this week, but in true bounty-hunter style, Steph Broadribb’s Deep Down Dead captures the top slot, with 32%. T M Logan’s Lies takes second place, while Keith Stuart’s A Boy Made of Blocks and John Marrs’ The One take joint third place.
This Week’s Winner:
Deep Down Dead
Lori Anderson is as tough as they come, managing to keep her career as a fearless Florida bounty hunter separate from her role as single mother to nine-year-old Dakota, who suffers from leukaemia. But when the hospital bills start to rack up, she has no choice but to take her daughter along on a job that will make her a fast buck. And that’s when things start to go wrong.
The fugitive she’s assigned to haul back to court is none other than JT, Lori’s former mentor – the man who taught her everything she knows … the man who also knows the secrets of her murky past. Not only is JT fighting a child exploitation racket operating out of one of Florida’s biggest theme parks, Winter Wonderland, a place where ‘bad things never happen’, but he’s also mixed up with the powerful Miami Mob. With two fearsome foes on their tails, just three days to get JT back to Florida, and her daughter to protect, Lori has her work cut out for her. When they’re ambushed at a gas station, the stakes go from high to stratospheric, and things become personal.
*Every week I extract all the novel titles from my ‘Round Up Blog‘ and enter them into a poll. If a novel is not on the list it is because it didn’t appear in my blog during the week stated at the top of the poll. I’d love to know which novel (not review) was your favourite. If you haven’t read any of them, pick the one you would choose to read instead.
