This book was so good i read it in one day but of cousre i didnt go to sleep. Sassy is a women who is looking for the kind of romance that she writes about in her books and when she finds the perfect man theres another side to him but not really i dont know how to explain it without giving away the entire book. All i can really tell you is that if you like a murder mystery with a bit of romance and a really big twist that there is no way you can guess it kind of book then i promise you that you wont be disappointed with SASSY and dont borrow it from a friend this is a buy it yourself book for sure.

Bestselling romance novelist Sassy Davenport has found the man of her dreams. Norris is like any of the leading male characters that she creates in her books. He's handsome, charming, kind and rich. But.he seems to have a split personality, one good and the other evil - a modern day Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. As people in Norris' life are brutally murdered, the common denominator is Norris. He quickly becomes the main suspect. Is Sassy in love with a mad man. More importantly, is her own life in danger? I haven't read a book by Gloria Mallette that I didn't like. As a versatile writer, she has taken her newest endeavor in yet another direction dealing with murder, love, family and AIDS. Unfortunately, there were some editing issues. That said, like her other novels, "Sassy" makes for good reading. Reviewed by: Toni

What I thought would be a drama, has a little intrigue and a lot of mystery. I enjoyed "Sassy" by Gloria Mallette, maybe because I know of the areas she is writing about; maybe because I wanted to know if Norris was evil or just maybe because it was a goo book. I got the impression that this story may have been a little autobiographical (hopefully, not the killing part), and some parts were a little unbelievable, but Ms. Mallette kept this reader entertained. Certainly, a good summer read.
