Due for Discard by Sharon St. George Review & Giveaway


Due for Discard Summary:
Aimee Machado is thrilled to be starting her first job as a forensic librarian at the medical center in the town of Timbergate, north of Sacramento, California. Her ebullient mood is somewhat dampened by her recent breakup with her former live-in boyfriend, Nick Alexander. And then there's a little matter of murder: on Aimee's first day on the job, a body is found in a nearby Dumpster and soon identified as her supervisor's wife, Bonnie Beardsley.

Aimee's heartbreaker of a brother and best friend, Harry, just happens to be one of the last people to see Bonnie alive, but he is hardly the only suspect. Bonnie was notorious for her wild partying and man-stealing ways, and she has left a trail of broken hearts and bitterness. Aimee is determined to get her brother off the suspect list.

Aimee's snooping quickly makes her a target. Isolated on her grandparents' llama farm where she fled post-breakup, she realizes exactly how vulnerable she is. Three men have pledged to protect her: her brother Harry, her ex, Nick, and the dashing hospital administrator with a reputation for womanizing, Jared Quinn. But they can't be on the alert every minute, not when Aimee is so bent on cracking the case with or without their help.

Book 1 in a new mystery series featuring amateur sleuth Aimee Machado.


Sharon St. George's Bio: 

Sharon St. George had the good fortune to spend an idyllic childhood in a small northern California town, riding horseback and camping with her family in the nearby mountains. One of her favorite pastimes was reading fiction, and a trip to the library was always an occasion of great joy. She’s traded horses for llamas, but she still treks to the high mountain lakes near her home—always with a mystery novel in her backpack. Sharon’s writing credits include three plays, several years writing advertising copy, a book on NASA’s space food project, and feature stories too numerous to count. She holds dual degrees in English and Theatre Arts, and occasionally acts in, or directs, one of her local community theater productions. Sharon is a member of Sisters in Crime and Mystery Writers of America, and she serves as program director for Writers Forum, a nonprofit organization for writers in northern California.

My Review:

Aimee Machado is happy to start a new job as a forensic librarian. It is not her fault that the body of her new boss is found in a dumpster near her place of employment. There is more than one suspect even her own brother, Harry is on the list. While trying to help her brother she is now in danger. Will she be able to find the real killer before they find her?   This is  a great beginning to a new mystery series.  I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book for the purpose of a  review and all opinions are my own.

    1. I am obsessed with Clue! That was the theme for the rehearsal dinner for my wedding. The guests "all received letters" to invite them! We had so much fun! Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Okay that was so weird and disappointing! I was entering this giveaway and it said it wasn't over for 9 years! I figured it was an error, but kept entering. Then when I left a comment and the page refreshed the giveaway had ended. It looks like all my entries were also erased as it now shows 1 out of 39 entries. Very disappointed to have spent time entering, following Twitter accounts, tweeting, posting comment, visiting Facebook pages, etc.
