Tetterbaum's Truth by S.R Claridge
Review: TETTERBAUM’S TRUTH by S.R. CLARIDGE
I began reading this book not remembering what it was actually about. Boy was I surprised at what was coming at me! After just a few pages I was already so drawn into this fictional world that at times I really lost my attention for what was happening around me in real life. The writing is very fluent and the plot just keeps you concentrated at all times because there’s never a dull moment in Angel’s life! A perfect mix of excitement, action, mystery and romance keeps you turning those pages without even thinking for a second about putting the book aside. I loved the Italian flavor (thank you Mafia) that was weaved into this contemporary story. I sure am very curious to find out what is left in store for Angel in the follow-up novel Traitors Among Us. And did I just hear there is yet another follow-up in the making? Don't lose this author out of sight!
Available in ebook and paperback format.
Tetterbaum's Truth is nothing short of enticing from the first page til the last page. The character's are as real as it gets, the plot full of suspense and mystery and the ending will leave you begging for more. Don't even think of opening this book for a casual read...it's just a "can't put down" kind of adventure.
WOW... great, well-written story .... anxiously awaiting book two.
Here's how it goes: following a tragic accident to her father, Angel inherits Tetterbaum's Pub. Even though she has a good head for business, she isn't the best at choosing men in her life and to make matters worse, her doting aunt is continually fixing her up with losers. Then, an old lover mysteriously appears on the heels of her current lover's disappearing act. To complicate things, a handsome employee at the pub makes a play for her. Three men: each claiming that the other two want to kill her. Trust her heart, or her intuition? And once the Mafia rears it's ugly head-with as many serpents as Medusa-the plot screams into full thrust with veiled and unveiled threats, surprise alliances, Machiavellian maneuvering for power, murder, kidnappings, and a wild search for some revealing tapes. Believe me, each chapter will leave you salivating for the next one and the ending will catch you by complete surprise.
S.A. Claridge, the author, has a background in theater and has written scripts for several venues. It is valuable experience that serves her well. She currently lives in Colorado and loves to hunker down in front of her computer with a Vodka Martini and write away. Happily for us, she's already published TRAITORS AMONG US, the second in her "Just call me Angel" series. I'm impatiently looking forward to reading it.
