...a sink-your-teeth-into-it mystery, a big tough thriller of a book that you can snuggle up with after pulling on a pair of soft cotton pants and a soft cotton T-shirt, sitting in your sunroom on a rainy day. ...I'd never read any of JLB's work because, being gay, I am almost allergic to the type of thrillers written by, say, Michael Connelly, John Sandford, or Elmore Leonard whose protagonists have so much testosterone in their blood that it comes through the pages like a vapor. Yeah, I usually stick to Carol Higgins Clark, Kathy Hogan Trocheck, Mary Higgins Clark, Susan Wittig Albert, Sue Grafton, Janis Harrison, and the like; mystery novels with female protagonists. But I had a romping good time with "Jolie Blon's Bounce". And you will too, if you pick it up.
