Review - Booked for Murder
Author: R.J. Blain
Where has RJ Blain been my whole life? Where was this book? I can't remember the last time a book in this genre grabbed me so strongly and took me down an adventure where I couldn't predict the ending, or it was watered down. Blain has a succinct way of writing and I thoroughly enjoyed immersing myself in this world. And I want magic powers too again. I don't care if I'm 34. Also I really want to be a badass librarian. How do I apply? Looking for a fun, intricate and what I can only describe as blunt story - this is the book for you. I've already bought the sequel!
Life as a bodyguard and driver for the rich, famous, and powerful is dangerous on a good day, and after sustaining a crippling injury while on duty, Janette's left with few options. Having signed a ‘for life’ contract but unable to work, she uses her skills to disappear. Her new life as a librarian suits her. Nobody cares she limps and sometimes requires a cane to walk. She’s wanted for her knowledge, not her lethal magic. She’s surrounded by books, a woman’s best friend. But when her former employer’s best friend is murdered on the steps of her library, old loyalties and secrets might destroy her - or set her free. Teaming up with her co-workers to find the killer might keep her from being booked for murder, but unless she’s careful, she’ll find out exactly how far her ex-boss will go to reclaim what is rightfully his.
