BOOK REVIEW

STILETTOS & SCOUNDRELS by Laina Turner Molaski

Stilettos & Scoundrels is a fun read; the kind of book you want to tuck into your tote and take to the beach. The protagonist is 33 year-old Presley; a gal with red hair, a serious addiction to Starbucks, a passion for designer shoes, and a bevy of beaus who won’t take no for an answer. When Presley loses her job because of a “no” to the boss, she lands a freelance writing gig and goes back to her hometown to interview a U.S. Senator. When the Senator is murdered shortly after the interview, Presley finds herself smack in the middle of a scandal that threatens to expose the town’s most prominent citizens. Turner has made this a page-turner with the type of suspenseful intrigue that keeps the reader guessing; just when you think you know who the killer is, she weaves another twist into the plot.

Stilettos & Scoundrels is available on Amazon in both print paperback and Kindle version – I got mine on my Kindle.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
