Danger in her Words

Barbara Barth


Publisher: Gilbert Street Press

Publication Date:

238 pages

A TV sitcom pitch gone wrong turns dog-column writer Susan Meyers in a tailspin. Sex Sells was the topic of the day at the writers’ convention. Susan decided to try something new and a steamy romantic novel seemed just the answer. A widow who hadn’t dated in three years, Susan was out of practice with men and sex. She turned to an online dating site to find inspiration for her book and unleashed a predator with the words she wrote. Tucked an hour away from her friends in a small town where she kept to herself, with only her tiny dog for company, Susan felt safe from the world. Little did she know her life was about to change.

A romp of a story about writing and finding yourself in this book within a book. If you love girl-talk, farmhouses, antiques, country towns, a touch of murder, a sprinkle of suspense, and a bit of naughty fun, come join Susan as she learns about life from her character Jamie. Two widows looking for love in all the wrong places might still get it right if they live long enough.

My Review:
This is a great summer read that I really liked. It was a fast read for me, and I loved Susan's dog. I also really enjoyed the Book in a book aspect. The author did a great job, and each plot flowed together very nicely. The antique shopping and the mystery were only a few of what was in this book. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
