I have always loved books ever since I learnt to read. The sort of person who would look at an instruction manual if there were nothing else available. Not that that has happened too often - I have tottering piles of books not to mention e books. I will read almost anything as l long as it holds my interest. Besides books. I love music, photography, cryptic crosswords and playing Fitz 1 & 2 games.
Black-Eyed Susans: A Novel of Suspense - Julia Heaberlin

Tessie is the only survivor of a brutal murderer (nicknamed Black-eyed Susans). The culprit is behind bars awaiting execution as this is Texas, but is he? Sadly this book took far too long to get going, wasn't creepy enough and it just didn't hold my attention. The reader is meant to empathise with Tessie as we find out what happened in alternate chapters when the teenager tells the tale. I realise I am going against the majority here but I just didn't like the way it was written and had to force myself to read it. I liked the cover very much!
