This year for the A-Z challenge, I've been featuring an A-Z list of books taken from my GoodReads to-read shelf. For my "X" book, I've decided to take a break from the onslaught of classics and aim for a nice murder mystery:
XS (Allie Armington Mystery #2) - Louise Gaylord
There's a Bad Apple in the Big Apple The trouble started with a call from her sister, a supermodel, in New York City. The next thing she knew, Allie Armington, young, bright, successful and slightly bored Texas attorney, was on a plane to the Big Apple. It was downhill from there. Beautiful women are showing up dead, neat X marks carved in their breasts with almost surgical precision. Chilling enough in the abstract, but made all too real when Allie's sister's roommate turns up among them In a New York minute, Allie's up to her eyeballs in an NYPD sting operation targeting mega-rich men hosting parties in a secluded castle on the exclusive Jersey shore, complete with masks, mysterious monikers, models and mischief of the carnal and chemical kind.
Why do I want to read it? I'm not big on murder mystery type books, but I do enjoy trying to figure out what's going on, and I also love to see justice done!
