You ever hear the phrase, about as successful as a soup sandwich? Well, that's me, I’m the soup sandwich, but instead of a soggy mess, you have a twenty five year old with a Bachelor’s degree in nothing useful who just quit her job at the local home improvement store where there were definitely no tortured billionaires looking to tie anyone up--and that's not a bad thing. I know, it's looking pretty sad right about now, but at least I don't still live with my parents…
So, here I am, embarking on a new journey covering the Funerals and Obituaries section of the local paper, the San Diego Metro News, for the editor--brace yourself--my uncle, Sal. Unfortunately, while my parents are on vacation, my Granny and her friends are determined to stir up some trouble--but this time, they may have bitten off more than they can chew--especially when some of the residents of the local retirement community are turning up unnaturally dead.
There is nothing that will keep me from protecting the people that I love, no matter how crazy they may be--not even the sexy, I mean stubborn, homicide detective, Trent Foyle, can stop me.
My name is Shelby Whitmore and I'm kind of the newest reporter for the San Diego Metro News, but hey, I'm a hit with the blue hairs.
Dead & Buried by Jennifer Rebecca Review
Dead & Buried was my first Jennifer Rebeca book and fortunately for all parties involved, it won’t be my last. Right off the bat, I noticed a Stephanie Plum vibe to the story. Which is all good since I was a fan of the Plum series before the love triangle just drove me mad. I had to kindly walk away after book right. But I digress…
I really liked Shelby. She was funny and entertaining. Trent was a hot alpha but at times didn’t know if he wanted to be possessive or sweet. Their back and forth gave me romantic whiplash. And half the time I had no freaking clue what the hell was going on in the story…but I LOVED IT. I could not put this book down. Lucky for the book, our power was knocked out early afternoon on the day that I read it and was out for 6+ hours. What’s a girl to do during nap time with no power?! Hmmm….read Dead & Buried, an awesome romance with a twist of suspense and some crazy, “I wish they were my grannies” old ladies.
