clapping-hands copyI love saying that. I hope the Grammarly post helped everyone. It’s truly a great tool. And, as several of you commented, there is a FREE version as well.

However, the winner will receive 3 months of the premium version which, in my humble opinion, is amazing!

I threw everyone’s name in a hat and handed it to my husband to draw the winner. Congrats to………..aurorajeanalexander. Woohooo! Let’s congratulate Aurora Jean Alexander.

I finished “Shadow Man“. In my last post I mentioned what I learned about Smoky, the main character, within the first few chapters. I’ve read other novels that proceeded to dump information in the beginning, and the rest of the book sputtered along like a broke train. This was not the case. The pace continued forward, the character arcs grew, and the tension built.

I’d say ninety-five percent of the time in mystery/thriller novels I figure out who done it. Shadow Man tippy-toed across the floor and snuck up on me. I didn’t see this one coming due to being so concerned about the characters. This is both a plot and character driven novel. Overall, this is a great example of the essentials that really make a good book.

While taking a break from reading, I went to the kitchen for some watermelon and my doorbell rang. Now I’ve just read where the killer rings the victim’s doorbell. I know that I’m expecting a package and it’s the UPS person, but I stood there in my kitchen thinking about the book and said aloud “Ahhhh hell no, I’m not answering that door.” I then look up and my sliding glass door is wide open. If anyone wanted to come in they certainly could. I laughed at myself and proceeded to cut my melon.

If anyone reads this book, or has read it. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Until Next Time…
