So… I discovered back in the day (when I first started power reading again)… a certain love for “Fan Fiction” (stories written by “fans” that continue in the world of their favorite book series or famous person life situation). I know… I know… such a reading-taboo for many, as some absolutely resist fan-fiction. But, well… as a reader that couldn’t get enough of the Twilight Saga when I finished the series, or of the Sookie Steakhouse series when I finished THAT one, I just wanted to read and I was DESPERATE for more!!
I received four separate recommendations for this one within a week. THAT caught my attention and even though the cover wouldn’t have intrigued me off the bat (I’m not usually into murder mysteries, and this one *looked* like it might have been one), I set aside my reservations and immediately moved it to the top of my reading list.
