I thought this book was great. A lot of fun to read. I can't wait to read the next book by this author. I'm definitly hooked. =)
This is a fun read. Sasha is a quirky, busy-body charachter whose cat talks to her. I think I'm going to check out the next in the series.
So hallucination-prone Sasha Solomon just happens to have degrees in psychotherapy and Chinese, and is pursuing a career in PR in a small town in New Mexico. That's just too much of a stretch for me.
I very much like this book. I have lived in New Mexico for over 15 years and it's so cool reading a story about places I have heard of and can even picture in my head. I really enjoyed this mystery. Very clever. I will definitely read Belen Hitch by the same author.
An interesting read with a unique character, Sasha Solomon, who uses whipped cream as comfort food and helps solve a murder.
Fun story but I kept tripping over "how come?" thoughts. The whole alien thing - given the storyline you wouldn't think Sasha would have to do any PR for Clovis since artifacts are apparently just lying about available to be grabbed. Sasha's friend Mae is so unpleasant to her in this story they really must have had an incredible friendship in order for Sasha to take pains on her behalf. Sasha's second major in college was Chinese, she speaks it fluently, but she's having trouble being employed? In public relations? Maybe she tells employers she hallucinates... It does have a good sense of place and some funny bits as well, the whipped cream cans made me giggle every time. The obligatory potential romance with a handsome detective comes up too.
Freshly unemployed New Mexico PR director Sasha Solomon travels to the tiny town of Clovis to bid on a hush-hush project aimed at competing with neighboring Roswell for the alien/UFO tourist dollar. Arriving in Clovis, Sasha stops by her old friend Mae King's cattle ranch-and discovers the body of a dead pilot from a nearby air force base floating in a water trough.
Mae, a true believer in the "visitors among us" theory, doesn't recognize the dead man...but does identify her diary and nightgown clutched in his stiff fingers. When the victim turns out to be a top foreign military officer. Sasha-contrary to Mae-things tis crime is quite earthly in origin. Unfortunately, Mae is now the prime suspect. Certain that the truth really is out there, Sasha butts heads with the locals, the law and Mae's vindictive relatives to unlock more than a few deadly secrets in Clovis.
