I was so excited to receive an ARC of this book for review before it goes on sale July 13, 2015. I am loving the Bod Squad series. The story line is fast paced and intriguing and has a splash of adult romance thrown in. Be forewarned, if you do not enjoy a few steamy, vivid, love scenes, this may not be for you.
In this installment, we focus a bit more on Lisa Bee and Jackson. If you remember from my first post, Lisa was my favorite character so I was thrilled to read more about her. Susannah and the rest of the Bod Squad, as they have nicknamed themselves, are also present in this book but we are introduced to Lisa and Jackson in more depth.
Just as Susannah and Chas are about to say “I Do”, they are interrupted with a new case and this one is serious. It seems that Susannah’s presumed-dead father is alive and may be in massive trouble. The team is sent overseas and a lot happens there. I am not giving away the rest of the plot, you will just have to read it for yourselves.
I can’t wait for more of this series to come out later this year!
I picked up the hardcover edition of this book from www.bookoutlet.com. I decided to get it just based on its’ description. I had not heard anything about this book previously. I am so glad that I got it. THIS BOOK IS AMAZING!
Rebekah Roberts is a reporter for a tabloid paper and is sent on many assignments everyday. She is always running from one location to another to try to get the scoop on the story. She is sent to Brooklyn to cover a story of a murdered Hasidic woman. There is something about this story that hits home with Rebekah and she feels obligated to catch this killer. Rebekah grew up only with her Christian father because her mother, who was Jewish, abandoned her when she was an infant. As she tries to get more information about this victim, Rebekah has to deal with the reemerging anger and confusion that her own mother has caused. Rebekah learns more and more about the Hasidic community and is bothered by the fact the the NYPD isn’t more invested in finding the killer.
I read this book last week while we were experiencing some very warm weather and I found myself having a hard time pulling myself away from the setting of the book. I would tell myself to get my coat and gloves because I believed that the weather outside was the same as that in the story. I was shocked that I was so absorbed by this book. I then read about the author and found out that Julia Dahl is a news reporter. Now this made sense.
I had the pleasure of meeting Julia Dahl this past weekend at BookCon 2015 and she autographed my copy of this book. She was the sweetest woman and her new book is coming out the end of June. She is an author that I would love to sit down with and just chat like girlfriends do. Thanks Julia for taking the time to sign my book!

It’s almost time to find out who killed Nolan Hotchkiss! June 2nd is just around the corner, and with it come the release of THE GOOD GIRLS The Perfectionists #2 by Sara Shepard.
From Sara Shepard, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Pretty Little Liars series, comes the shocking sequel to The Perfectionists—with an ending you’ll have to read to believe!
Mackenzie, Ava, Caitlin, Julie, and Parker have done some not-so-perfect things. Even though they all talked about killing rich bully Nolan Hotchkiss, they didn’t actually go through with it. It’s just a coincidence that Nolan died in exactly the way they planned . . . right? Except Nolan wasn’t the only one they fantasized about killing. When someone else they named dies, the girls wonder if they’re being framed. Or are they about to become the killer’s next targets?
For as long as she can remember, Sara Shepard has been writing. However, when she was young she also wanted to be a soap opera star, a designer for LEGO, a filmmaker, a claymation artist, a geneticist, and a fashion magazine editor when she grew up. She and her sister have been creating joint artistic and written projects for years, except they’re pretty sure they’re the only ones who find them funny.
She got her MFA at Brooklyn College and now lives outside Philadelphia, PA with her husband and dogs. Her first adult novel is called The Visibles/ All The Things We Didn’t Say.
Sara’s bestselling young adult series, Pretty Little Liars, is loosely based on her experiences growing up on Philadelphia’s Main Line…although luckily she never had any serious stalkers. The series has also inspired the ABC Family television series of the same name. http://www.saracshepard.com
One winner will get finished copies of THE PERFECTIONISTS and THE GOOD GIRLS
