It's Sunday Salon Time!

Ok, So I know I am suppose to feature all my new finds on Friday Finds but really when you think about it. It's now really a new find as I first heard about this author and book from J. Kaye. LOL. Actually J. Kaye was nice enough to pass my information along to Mrs. Nowell Butler . So you can imagine my surprise when Joylene emailed me asking if I wanted to review her book Dead Witness.

Valerie McCormick had won a Mother’s Day contest for two fun filed days in Seattle. If she had known that winning would have her running for her life then she probably won’t have gone. Valerie went down to the docks to take some pictures when she witnesses the murder of two men. Valerie discovers that the two men were undercover FBI agents who were working a case to bring down of Latin’s most famous drug lord’s Miguel DeOlmos. Now DeOlmos is after Valerie and her family but the FBI is going to try their hardest to protect Valerie. DeOlmos tracks Valerie down and almost succeeds in killing her. Now Valerie knows that she will have to take matters into her own hands. It’s a battle of wits in addition to who has time in their favor.

I found it amazing just to what extremes a mother will go to protect her family. Valerie’s character is a very strong woman with a fierce personality. The story line was a very exciting one with all the action and adventure. It seemed like though that Valerie was better equipped to take on Miguel DeOlmos then the FBI were. This is why I think I found Dead Witness so good was because I wanted to see what Valerie would do next. I was pleasantly surprised to find I couldn’t put Dead Witness down. Dead Witness can by classified as a great read. This is all due to the author Joylene Nowell Butler. Keep up the good job.
