So I loooove Jodie Thomas. I didn’t know I did, it was a surprise love. I thought her book covers looked like Debbie Macomber’s so I didn’t even look twice. Then, one day when I was bored and had NOTHING to read (y’know, except the 3 bags full of books sitting on the sofa – but still) I bought Rewriting Monday. What a blast I had reading it!
Pepper Malone is a journalist who suddenly leaves her last job – after her life is threatened – to move to Bailee, Texas. Her aunt has left her a house in her will, and Pepper needs somewhere to hide out for a bit. Problem is, the aunt isn’t dead. And it isn’t a house so much as a trailer. Complete with a disgruntled cat.
Mike McCulloch runs the local newspaper, who has a motley crew working for him. He hires Pepper and the fun begins. There’s murder, mayhem and the FBI is called in. And that’s just one night in the nursing home! Jodie Thomas writes extremely well, with lots of giggles and outright guffaws. There’s romantic tension, suspense tension and even cat tension. Well worth the money spent and I’ll buy from this author again. And again!
