It’s 7:15 p.m. here, so I’ll start with good evening. I certainly hope that everyone is doing well. Tonight, I’m going to share my thoughts on a book that I just finished, titled BEST DRESSED LIE by AJ Carella. You may remember her from THE GAME SERIES that I’d previously blogged about.
It isn’t very often that you can read a novella written by a woman who is as comfortable making her characters imperfect and even foolish. But, again, AJ Carella has managed to take selfish and sometimes doomed characters, and create an intense web of deception and drama. I love it!
Jamie is the perfect daughter, while her adopted brother, Jake, is something more of a family screw-up. They are part of one of the wealthiest families in the south and Jake hopes to one day take over the family company, despite him feeling like his parents favor Jamie. Things heat up even more when Jamie becomes engaged and her fiancé is offered the job that had been promised to Jake. Sex, lies, and murder. Sounds great, right?
Having a knack for surprising her readers, AJ Carella will not disappoint you. Understand, she writes novellas, so they aren’t as long as what you may be used to. But Ms. Carella writes quickly and her work is definitely something you’ll want to pay attention to! I’m not fancy, so I’ll simply add in the link to her book (http://www.amazon.com/Best-Dressed-Lie-Lies-Series-ebook/dp/B00GTUDW7I/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1385218506&sr=8-2&keywords=best+dressed+lie), as well as her twitter account (www.twitter.com/ajcarella)
If you haven’t already checked out THE GAME, GAME ON, and END GAME by her, check them out! They are fast-paced, intense stories that aren’t like anything else you’ve ever read.
All my love,
