Author: Sherri L. Smith
Publisher: G.P. Putnam
Release Date: September 13, 2016

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Award-winning author Sherri L. Smith returns with a riveting, noir-style thriller, perfect for fans of E. Lockhart

Bad things happen everywhere. Even in the land of sun and roses.

When Jude's best friend is found dead in a swimming pool, her family calls it an accident. Her friends call it suicide. But Jude calls it what it is: murder. And someone has to pay.

Now everyone is a suspect--family and friends alike. And Jude is digging up the past like bones from a shallow grave. Anything to get closer to the truth. But that's the thing about secrets. Once they start turning up, nothing is sacred. And Jude's got a few skeletons of her own.

In a homage to the great noir stories of Los Angeles, award-winning author Sherri L. Smith's Pasadena is a tale of love, damage and salvation set against the backdrop of California's City of Roses.

Why I'm excited:
If you follow me at all, you know I love a good mystery. When you say the words: noir-style thriller, my ears perk up like a dog who just heard the word: walk. e. lockhart is one of my favorite authors, so a comparison to her will also peak my interest. So basically, what I'm saying, is that my interest is very much peaked. Gimme.

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
