DEAL BREAKER


"Sports agent Myron Bolitar is poised on the edge of the big time. So is Christian Steele, a rookie quarterback and Myron's prized client. But when Christian gets a phone call from a former girlfriend, a woman who everyone, including the police, believes is dead, the deal starts to go sour. Trying to unravel the truth about a family's tragedy, a woman's secret, and a man's lies, Myron is up against the dark side of his business—where image and talent make you rich, but the truth can get you killed."
from Amazon

My dad and step-mom suggested reading a Harlan Coben book, so they let me borrow this one, Deal Breaker. I thought it would just be a mystery that had me guessing until the end and it definitely was, but it was also humorous. It was an easy read and like many other mysteries, it was a quick one. Instead of wanting to rush through to the end just to see "who done it," this one was more descriptive so I found myself guessing who it was and hoping I was right before I finished it. Like always, I was wrong, but it was still a great read. It did kind of drag on with all of the details and it left me hanging at quite a few parts, but I guess that's expected. I'm just not a big fan of mentioning something that is significant to the case and then waiting 50 pages to revisit it and explain what it was. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes mysteries though. It was a better mystery than the James Patterson book I read, and it was much more realistic. I'll definitely read more by him!

Now on to read Water for Elephants...or Change of Heart. I haven't decided yet.

I hope ya'll are having a fantastic Monday!!
