I'm A Book Shark

Freelance copyeditor to all amazing self-published and independent authors. Check out my editing page for more information. <3 Mickey is the blogger behind I’m A Book Shark. She really wishes there was a better explanation for why she’s a book shark. A new twitter name was needed, and it had to be about her favorite hobby: reading! For whatever reason, sharks also came to mind, and a book shark was born. Besides reading, Mickey is a natural reddish-headed, late-twenties, tattooed, entertainment-of-all-kinds lover, wife of husband, mother of reptiles (and a cat and two puppies, all spoiled), student, employee, boss, and (mostly) raw vegan. Oh yeah, and she likes to blog. www.imabookshark.com

It's Murder, My Son (Mac Faraday Mystery #1) - Lauren Carr Full review here!

Big thanks to the author for mailing me the physical copy of this novel. Here is my honest review:

I enjoyed the mystery behind this novel. It was predictable and unpredictable all at the same time. The initial murder created the mystery, but then several other people ended up dead and Mac had to figure it out. Speaking of Mac..

He's just gotten divorced and lost his job, so when he finds out that his biological mother has died and left him $270,000,000 he's just fine. He moves into her house and meets Archer, his mother's female book editor who stays in the house too, and Gnarly, the genius German Shepherd. David, his half brother, comes along, and he's a police officer who helps him figure out the murders. It gets very convoluted after that. And there wasn't enough romance in there for me! Just sayin'.

Thanks again to the author for sending me this novel!
