Love Honour and O'Brien

Memorable Books from 2011

Whilst I can normally manage to cobble together one of those dreaded "Top 10" listings for some of the mailing lists or, just before Christmas, on the Sisters in Crime website, I hate doing them.  It's such an arbitrary number, and doesn't even allow me the luxury of a favourite book per month.  So instead, a few reminders to myself on what really stayed with me from last year's reading list of 135 books.

Currently Reading - Love Honour and O'Brien, Jennifer Rowe

Author Name: 

I'm as startled as you are.  Light-hearted, bordering on chick-lit and I've really enjoyed the latest (and much waited for) release from Jennifer Rowe.

From the Blurb:

She stared into the speckled mirror, wondering how she had come to this.  How could she, Holly Love, apple of her parent's eye, competent manipulator of invoices in Gorgon Office Suppplies, have ended up alone and starving in a dead man's flat?

Blurb from the book

Holly Love's in big trouble - she's got to find the cheating swine who ripped her life apart, which turns out to be a huge mystery involving a gloomy old house, a hearse-driving Elvis impersonator and a gang of vengeful thugs - not to mention a possessed parrot and a very cute guy who might just take her mind off all her woes! A funny and hugely entertaining mystery from a brilliant storyteller.
