I gotta be honest. I don’t know anything about J.A. Jance, but she seems to be a popular mystery writer, and Costco is doing a book giveaway for her latest — “Cruel Intent”. There’s 25 being given away.
(BTW, Costco, your giveaway page has a big graphic that is totally not showing up. I’m sure it would be impressive if we could see it. You need to check that.)
Here’s what the book’s about:
On a dating site, singleatheart.com, bored housewives can find romance with married men looking for sex without strings. But these “married singles” are flirting with more than just their vows. At the heart of this seemingly innocent service, a vengeful computer hacker is playing games with people’s lives…and deaths.
Ex-television journalist Ali Reynolds just wants a break from excitement. In the midst of a remodel, the last thing she expects is a murder investigation that will stop the construction on her home. But when the savagely murdered body of stay-at-home mom Morgan Forester is found, Ali’s contractor Bryan is the prime suspect. Bryan swears he has nothing to do with his wife’s murder – but as the investigation progresses Ali seems to be the only resident of Sedona who believes him.
Determined to prove Bryan’s innocence, Ali unknowingly lands herself directly in the path of a calculating killer. In a world filled with encrypted computer traps and life-threatening lies, will Ali be able to decode the actions of a ruthless man determined to destroy women – before he uses his wicked website to find her?
Ooooooh, sounds good. Actually not really my kind of thing, but if you like J.A. Jance it probably sounds good.
This is sort of a tangent, but I think Sedona is totally overrated. I know everyone’s getting the healing powers and finding their vortexes or whatever out there, but to me it was just a lot of red rocks and no grass.
(I bring up Sedona because that’s where the book takes place according to the description, so I haven’t like flipped out or anything.)
