  1. Love this blog! Thanks, Must Read Mysteries!

    1. Thank you Julie! I found your blog post about the reasons for stopping writing the White House Chef series very enlightening and informative.

  2. There are always so many awesome mystery books listed on this blog :) I am so happy I found it! 2015 was such an awesome year for great books and I think 2016 is shaping up to be pretty fantastic too!! The book I enjoyed most this year was "Uncontrolled Spin" by author Jerry Summers (http://www.jerrysummersauthor.com/). The book is about a multimillionaire marketing expert, Sean Green, and his most recent client who is looking to put her apparel company on the map. During their “business” and “romantic” relationship Sean’s best friend is murdered and the twists and turns in the book don’t stop right up until the very end. This is the first book of the series and I am so excited to have found a book that not only keeps me hooked but offers more than just your typical murder mystery. I think Jerry Summers does a really good job at making it feel like a real romance and interlaces suspense and mystery in a really believable way. Hope you and your readers will check it out

    1. Thank you for sharing your experience with "Uncontrollable Spin" with us Deborah!
