Murder Deja Vu by Polly Iyer was an enjoyable read. It started a little slow for me. The hero in the story spent fifteen years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit and once he’s out and an investigator for his lawyer is trying to uncover the truth, another murder occurs. This murder is of a local woman and is carried out in the same manner. This is when the action picked up considerably in the story.
The villains in this story were very evil, especially the former husband of the heroine. He’s the local prosecutor and has an agenda of his own and while I enjoyed the story, the only part that I didn’t like is that we didn’t get to see him get his comeuppance. It was almost an aside at the end of the book. I really, really would have liked a scene where we, as the readers, could watch as he went down.
I recommend this one. The writing is clean and clear and the author will take you on an adventure.
got to 13,697 today on my NaNoWriMo novel. It’s a romantic suspense called Obsession. I had a hard time getting a handle on my female protagonist until I changed her name. Once I got the right name for her, she came together in my head much easier. This happened on another story, too.
It’s funny how my writing process works. I get the hero first. Always. His name and his back story come easy to me. Wonder why the women are so much harder for me? Guess it’s like real life. I have male friends and female friends and the male ones are much easier to get a handle on. Simpler needs, I guess. Life imitates art? I think so.
So, I woke up today with a really random thought/question. We all know about the Alpha male- you know, the macho, bossy, too arrogant to care guy. We also write about the Beta male. The one that is caring, sensitive and treats the heroine well. So, is there an OMEGA male? The first two letter of the Greek Alphabet are Alpha and Beta. The last is Omega. So, what kind of guy is the Omega? And will we ever see a book with him as the hero?
So, do you see the Omega man (yes. I know there was a movie by that name) as the ultimate anti hero or as the uber-nerd?? Just askin’
