Authors By The Alphabet Q - n - A

Ok girls, Belle has posted the ?'s on her blog BookBelle so go and check it out, just click on her blog title.  You can post your reviews and answers on your blog, and copy and paste the q-n-a onto her comment section.  I'm almost done with it.

As I said, I'm going to go back to E, check the last post *HERE* for that author link if you ever get stuck. 

May's book choice for the letter E -

The First Cut: A Novel

The First Cut
Dianne Emley
416 pgs
Ballantine Books

Amazon Blurb -

A year after surviving a brutal attack, Pasadena, Calif., police officer Nan Vining returns to duty in Emley's sizzling debut, a hard-edged police procedural with a psychic twist. Nan, a 34-year-old single mom who still bears emotional and skin-deep scars, has her mettle tested by her first case back. The gory corpse of young, blonde LAPD vice cop Frankie Lynde, who got "too close to her work," murmurs a cryptic message to Nan at the crime scene. Nan's ability to hear the dead may be connected to her near-death experience or may be a symptom of post-traumatic stress, but it does help crack Frankie's case and eerily provides a clue about Nan's unknown attacker, whom she and her 14-year-old daughter, Emily, dubbed T.B. Mann or "The Bad Man." Readers will cheer as the fast-paced, high-stakes investigation empowers Nan to triumph over a repugnant criminal and her fears.

I have never read this author.  Now, this is the first in a series that seems to have four altogether so far.  I'll see if I want to read some more.  It is availble on Kindle as well as traditional, and my library has it so I am keeping with my goal of not buying books if it can be avoided!   Hope you all like the choice, went for some murder mystery this month.  Next on the list for June is Marce with G's author :)  I know she'll find a good one for us!


  1. Oh cool, I just started Still Life with Husband.

    Yours sounds great, I have no idea what I will choose for 'G' glad I have time, someone may join also.

  2. Ugh! I haven't even started April's book yet! I will probably get it done some time next week and then just post my answers late....

  3. Oooo a suspense thriller! We haven't yet gone down that road in our book choices. Should be fun!

    And Yay!! My library has it, too. I'll pick it up on my next library visit. :)

  4. Yeah, I thought a thriller worked well. Julie hurry up and read lady! ;)

    I love not having to buy books Christine!

  5. A psychological thriller. Those usually scare my pants off. I'm in though. I'll go find it right now.

    I'm really enjoying this book club.

  6. Glad you're enjoying it Belle! Thrillers are one of my faves :)
