Over the weekend, I did some cleaning & rearranging in my dining room—also known as The Playroom or Kitty Cat Central. My entire house is decorated for the cats’ pleasure, of course, but the dining room especially is like a feline Disneyland.
(For the record, this is not a picture of my actual dining room.
I wish! :kittylaugh )
Anyway, I also have some boxes of book stored in there—which the cats like to sleep on, otherwise they’d be outie! And while I was moving a few of those around, the lid came off of one & I happened to look inside. What was on top? you might be asking. (Well, you should; you know I’m leading up to a Big Reveal here. :tongue ) It was The Alibi by Sandra Brown.
Oooh. You know how much I love Sandra Brown. And since I just finished Smash Cut, I am totally in the mood for more, more, more from her. But remember my vow: I shall read no book that ain’t set down South. I really want to try to stick with that so I remain in a southern frame of mind while I’m writing my “Dynasties: The Kincaids” story for Harlequin Desire, which is set in Charleston, South Carolina.
I couldn’t resist picking it up, though. Taking a look. Skimming the back cover blurb.
OMG! Guess what?! It’s set in Charleston!
Check it out:
The sensational murder of one of Charleston‘s most powerful citizens, real estate tycoon Lute Pettijohn, rocks the city and gives ambitious prosecutor Hammond Cross his chance to become the city’s next district attorney—if he wins the case. His investigation turns up no shortage of people who wanted Pettijohn dead. But when the prime suspect turns out to be a mysterious woman who holds the secret that can shatter Hammond’s ambitions, he faces a moral dilemma and a haunting question: Was he set up to be the perfect alibi?
Charleston! Charleston, Charleston, Charleston. Not just one of those nice, southern states…Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama…I’ve been running across in my search, but actual, factual Charleston itself. Woot! :vday I am dee-lighted.
And…sorry, but the other books I had started or planned to read next had to be pushed to the back burner. It’s The Alibi all the way bay-bee.
Of course, now I can’t help but wonder what I might find if I cleaned another room. But I really don’t wanna. :knock
