I am just discovering Chick-Lit, also known as cozy mysteries, from what I hear. I have stayed away because I thought they were just so much fluff on top of a mediocre story. I was wrong about that, I think. Sunshine Hunter has good plot lines and the story-telling by Ms. Cochere is first rate. It had everything needed to keep me turning the pages to the end so that I could find out who was stalking whom (one of two central characters) and why. I had no idea who the bad guy was until it was revealed near the end. I could see the depth of character in Sunshine Hunter as I watched her battle back and forth with decisions and situations. She attracts trouble like white on rice! As I read, I could see trouble about to happen but the author writes the character so well, I could tell she never saw it coming! Susan works in a weight loss center by day and a racquetball club at night. As the story goes, she takes off for Florida with a friend for a week after finding out that her boyfriend is married. She just needs to get over him and clear her head. See, this is why I have never read these kinds of stories! Is that a cliche plot-line, or what?! However, there is murder, stalking, accidents, car chases, mysteries abound. She ends up in the Gulf of Mexico on a flaming fishing boat! I am telling you, check this out. It is light and breezy, easy to read and the perfect beach read, too. Lots of laughs and also lots of surprises. I give Susan Hunter five stars! I loaded this as a free read on my Kindle app, it is not a new release.
This is Book One--I am checking out the rest!
Thanks so much for being here!
