My Friday Five Challenge is this….. IN ONLY FIVE MINUTES….
1) Go to any online book supplier,
2) Randomly choose a category,
3) Speed through the book covers, choose one which has instantly appealed to your eye,
4) Read the book Bio/ Description for this book,
5) If there are reviews, check out a couple,
6) Make an instant decision, would you BUY or PASS?
Cupcake-loving croupier Tiffany Black is determined to leave her job at the casino for good. She’s one small step away from acquiring her Private Investigator license, and has her eye on the prize.
Accepting her first real case – investigating the murder of casino-mogul Ethan Becker – should be exciting. Instead, things spiral out of control and Tiffany finds herself in over her head, as she confronts secretive suspects, corrupt casino henchmen and a bodyguard with a mysterious past.
Tiffany’s poker-hustling Nanna and pushy parents want her to find a nice man and settle down, but Tiffany just wants to track down the real murderer before he finds her first…
I choose this cover because of the embellishment of the items on the cover. The book is clearly about an investigation into a murder in Las Vegas. I like that the cover appears to show that the book isn’t a serious mystery but a playful mystery.
BUY OR PASS? If it was just one book, I would buy it, but it appears to be the first book out of three, so I’d probably PASS. But I don’t know what if the fist book is so good, I am missing out on a different genre and possibly a new category of fiction to love.
Oh, Rose Amber, this is much to difficult for me!!!
