Debbie Dyke is on tour now with CLP Blog Tours and her financial thriller The Bloody Mary Club. I was looking forward to reading this book because I love smart, crafty writing, and that is just what I got! The setting is Historic Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. The time is during the stock market meltdown. Our MC is Gina Van Story, a smart and ambitious investment advisor. She is on the prowl for the last big score before she retires, but she doesn’t expect to run into corruption – and death – while searching. Along with her crew of friends – deemed The Bloody Mary Club – Gina tries to broaden their stock portfolio while dodging threats and still come out on top.
I had a really fun time reading this novel. I loved Gina and her friends – all hilarious in their own ways. They were jut a blast to get to know. I actually even took a few notes while I read the book, because if it is one thing I wish I was more educated in, it’s the stock market! I really enjoyed the dynamic of the friendship between those in The Bloody Mary Club. They had a lot of challenges thrown their way – and money is obviously a huge factor – but they were able to stand united through it all, which I found very satisfying. I loved the mystery aspect – and Gina’s belly-dancing! (Minor plot point, but I thought it was great!) A well-written novel from Debbie Dyke that I would recommend![Rating: 4]
