I read a lot of classic and contemporary mysteries. This is a very good example of the genre. Ms. Fontenot understands first-hand the world of the professional blogger, which brings an element of realism to the story. I admit I did figure out "whodunnit" a few pages before the book revealed the killer's identity, but I still found it a satisfying read all the way to the last page. It was an exciting race to the wire to see if the good guys would be able to save the day. An excellent first novel, and I look forward to Ms. Fontenot's next story!
I read at least three (3) books a week and I found this book to be one of the BEST that I have read in a long time. The book captured my attention from the very first page was definitely a page turner. Couldn't wait for the ending to see "who done it". Waiting now for the sequel! This new author is going to be great. Congratulations Donna and keep writing!
I loved this book. I never read mysteries. Never. This book completely grabbed my attention. I simply plowed through it to get to the end as it was entirely engrossing. I suspect we'll hear more from Raya the heroine shortly. and I look forward to it.
I read this book on my Nook during Hurricane Isaac. I found that the hardships (no power, hot food or hot water) seemed to go away as I read. The book held my attention and I couldn't wait to find out "who done it". I hope this is just the beginning to a long and enjoyable career for the author and long and enjoyable reads for me.
The Grave Blogger is one of the most suspenseful,entertaining,books Ive read in a very long time. I dont remember the last time i spent a whole day reading a book because I just had to know what was going to happen next. From page one of Donna Fontenot's book i was hooked. Its a must read for anyone who loves great characters,suspense,humor, and twists and turns in every chapter. Great job for first time novelist Donna Fontenot. Cant wait for a sequel.
