    An Excellend Solo Effort

    The title is catchy isn¿t it? This alone made me curious as to why such a devilishly handsome man and his svelte companion would be gracing the cover of a book so titled. Eagerly I picked up Why Sleeping Dogs Lie, to see what lay between the pages. I was impressed with what I read. Author Tracie Howard, has done it again. Mallory Baylor has a secret. Forced to leave Atlanta, with a stop over in Philadelphia, she ends up as a staff writer in New York writing for their hip magazine, Heat. While on assignment to interview the cover story for this particular month¿s edition, Mallory comes face to face with a blast from her past, Saxton McKensie. Saxton, former ball player now top executive of a Media Relations Firm, Ingram Enterprises, is set to become an even more powerful mogul when he marries Deena Ingram. His story is notable and while Mallory has her doubts about seeing Saxton again, she does a wonderful job on the interview. Saxton is elated to see Mallory again. Plus he¿s impressed with her article and decides she would make a great edition to their company. Mallory isn¿t all too thrilled about working so close to Saxton in light of their past, but decides the compensation is worth the switch. Sounds cookie cutter so far? I invite you to read Why Sleeping Dogs Lie. Mallory¿s roommate and Deena are enough to keep the drama going. You¿ve yet to uncover the secret and the cast of supporting characters are so tightly intermingled that you¿ll be on the edge of your seat completely to the end. Tracie Howard has co-authored two books and has done right stepping forward on her own and molding her craft. Why Sleeping Dogs Lie is well-written and I hope this will not be her last solo effort.

    Why Sleeping Dogs Lie

    Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed this book! Read it in a couple of nights---simply could not put it down. Really related to the characters-- can't wait for the follow-up!
