ABOUT THE BOOK

After her mother dies from a heart attack, Sloane Templeton goes from Cyber Crimes Unit to bookstore owner before she can blink. She also "inherits" a half-batty store manager; a strange bunch of little old people from the neighborhood who meet at the store once a week, but never read books, called the Granny Oakleys Book Club; and Aunt Verline, who fancies herself an Iron Chef when in reality you need a cast iron stomach to partake of her culinary disasters. And with a group like this you should never ask, “What else can go wrong?”

A lot! Sloane begins to receive cyber threats. While Sloane uses her computer forensic skills to uncover the source of the threats, it is discovered someone is out to kill her. Can her life get more crazy?

MY THOUGHTS
I can only ask...."Bonnie, why did you wait so long to write this book?!"  If you want a book full of hilarious characters and a lot of action...then this is the book for you.  Sloane is one tough lady with a whole lot of wit.  With an aunt like Verline, you need to stay on your toes and have a direct line to the fire department!  With a store manager like Fifi, you don't know what's going to happen next.  Add in a couple of crazy boyfriends and you end up with a recipe for disaster.

The question is, when will disaster strike and how?

...Loved the book!
