Charm City

The second book in the Tess Monaghan series by Laura Lippman did not disappoint either! I read this in basically one day.  I stayed up til after midnight to finish. ;)

I never realized the first one was kind of clunky with over info until I read this one and realized it was much better written.  Practice makes perfect.

In this installment, Tess is hired by the Beacon-Light to try to find out who put the un-authorized story on the front page of the paper.  A side drama, also involves her inheriting a greyhound after her Uncle Spike is beaten into a coma during a robbery at his bar. 

I really find Tess to be a likable enjoyable character who is real.  She makes mistakes, she isn't perfect and she gets her heart broken every now and then.  My kind of character. 

If you like Stephanie Plum books you will definitely like the Tess Monaghan series!

What are you reading right now?
