I was inspired to read this book after hearing J.A. Jance speak
at Internet Librarian last year. The book is a about an “over
40” news reporter who is fired from her job for being too
old and subsequently finds herself with her life falling
apart: husband sleeping around, no job prospects, injured
father and embroiled in the aftermath of the death of her
friend. I enjoyed the story, but thought that it was really
complicated and not going anywhere until 7/8ths of the way
through when suddenly all the pieces fell into place. The
interesting part [from a librarian’s point of view:] was that the main character starting blogging. This element introduced
a variety of random voices into the story, something I think
that we all experience on a daily basis. It gave the book
a level of reality that I haven’t experienced in other books
thus far. I do hope the author writes about the character
again.
