I sent this out months ago, knowing it would probably get savaged, and then more or less forgot about it. She states that it often takes her months to get to e-books and I took her at her word.
Beth Williamson, who is now and forever a woman I will adore (Well, I did already since I met her in Atlanta. She's a laugh riot!) e-mailed me to tell me about it.
I'm still shaking. And bouncing. I had to take a break to make a breathless to call to dh and tell him. Naturally, he was unsurprised since he says he already knows it's "universally acknowledged that it's a good book." Ok, that sentence kind of sucked, but I'm too excited to edit it.
What did she say?
The pacing is well-done - the story moves fast like a rollercoaster ride to Hip-hip Hurray land or something - while the romance is actually very convincing despite the fast pace and short duration over which the story takes place.
These two are really fun to read and their chemistry is pretty good.
This book has action, romance and comedy and packs a pretty hard punch as well. I really have a wonderful time reading it. Sure, it's short, but it's also very enjoyable. A quick bite-sized read that feels so good is exactly what I find Not Quite Dead to be.
You said it - HOLY CRAP!!!
That's fantastic, Sela!!! Go you, babe. :-D
