Overview

Aspiring novelist Amanda Anderson has never had any luck, but she hopes that's about to change. She goes to a writer's conference to find an agent, but ends up with a husband. After a whirlwind courtship, she elopes with bestselling suspense writer Jonny Goodsnuff.

But she soon discovers that her husband's only good on paper. Between a draconian prenup, his sleazy associates, her wicked stepchildren, and the hunky romance-novelist neighbor, Amanda learns the meaning of "wed in haste, repent at leisure."

Unfortunately Jonny has a deadly secret, and before she can walk away, Amanda finds herself in a desperate game of cat and mouse. But who are the cats? And who are the mice? And most importantly, will any of this bring her closer to a publishing contract?

    This is a story you must stick with. The beginning is a little slow while the characters are developed, but eventually progresses into a very entertaining murder mystery with a lot of unexpected twists. It is well thought out, with plenty of clues dropped like bread crumbs for us to follow. Many of the clues are so subtle that aren’t even noticed until explained later in the story. It is written in first person, which the author handles very well. There are a few inconsistencies that a nitpicking reader might not be happy with, but they should be ignored. At various times, we are forced to change our impression of the main characters. Amanda first seems like a typical dumb blond. However, as her character develops, I came to like her. Johnny was always a bit despicable and had too much of a split personality to ever be really likable. The Stonewall character was a little confusing. At first I felt he was shallow, but he ended up being very amiable. The author’s ability to cause me to change my opinion about the characters crept up and happened before I realized what was going on. In the end, justice is served and I closed the book feeling very satisfied with the outcome.

    A Goood Read and a Good Laugh

    Given that this was a first novel by Ellie Burmeister, I wasn't expecting as much as was delivered. Reading a book on a computer is normally a chore for me but in this case I spent several hour-long sessions because I was engaged in the story. There was enough suspense to keep me coming back to my laptop. I had no trouble visualizing the characters and getting to like and/or dislike them. While the protagonist, Amanda Anderson, lacks judgement in her choice of men, she is a smart lady who recognizes her mistakes and has the strength to correct them.

    I am not a literary critic I just know what I like and I enjoyed this story. I'm hoping that there will be more Ellie Burmeister stories in the future.

    Highly Recommend

    I started reading this book mostly because of the title. The further in I got found me reading it in the car before comnpleting errands and in the driveway before going back in my house. I love John Grisham, but was excited to read something that was less complicated and more fun.
