Fun read, really fast paced.
Wow! This was a really good book! I made a big mistake of starting it last night, I was only going to read the first chapter since I am already reading 2 other books, well.....I stayed up all night. This book you will not be able to put down!
This book kept my attention and desire to keep reading, always a plus.
This book kept you guessing right to the end.....why would a women leave her fortune to someone she doesn't know, or does she know her?
Back cover, " As Geri sets out to discover why the estate has been left to her, everything leads back to her own troubled childhood."
I thought this book was interesting, but the writer's style was hard to follow.
Absolutley a pager tuner at one seating!!!!!
This is the third in a three book "series" of sorts. One character is in all 3 books ... that's it. These books (all three of them) were so unimpressive I had to go back and read the comments about the book to even remember the stories. I did enjoy reading them at the time. It just seemed like they took forever to get through. I guess Ken Follet spoiled me with his "Fall of Giants and "Pillars of the Earth" his writing is unstoppable and easy to read even though these are 900 plus page books. Maybe it's not fair to compare Bonnie Hearn Hill to Ken Follet, but that just happens to be what I have read after her. I really enjoyed the book set in San Francisco, "Cutline" that one was my favorite of the 3 the last one "Off the Record" I don't remember finishing it I was so excited to start Pillars after reading "Fall of Giants"

This will be the story of her life
Journalist Geri LaRue is outraged when she loses the paper's "Off the Record" column to an insufferable colleague. To salvage her career and her waning self-confidence, Geri needs a breakâand fast. The perfect story comes when successful businesswoman Kathleen Fowler is found deadâher battered body dropped from the balcony of her home to the cliffs below. But Geri doesn't have to chase this story; she inherits it. Somehow she has been named the murdered woman's sole beneficiary, despite never having met her.
As Geri sets out to discover why the estate has been left to her, everything leads back to her own troubled childhood. A childhood she would rather forgetâthe foster homes, the painful memories. And when another person is brutally murdered, Geri realizes that the key to finding a killer may be hidden in her own mind.
