The Fallen Angels Book Club has only two requirements: the members must love books and have a white-collar criminal record. Hollis Morgan fits the bill. Left holding the bag in an insurance fraud scheme concocted by her now ex-husband, she served her time and is trying to rebuild her life. All she wants is for the court to pardon her conviction so she can return to law school.
After one of her fellow members is murdered in a scenario straight out of a club selection, Hollis is once again the subject of police scrutiny. Refusing to get stuck with another bad rap, she sets out to investigate her fellow club members. Is one of them really blackmailing the others? As a second member dies in yet another book-inspired murder, Hollis realizes that time is running out. Everything rides on her finding the killer–not just her career aspirations. She must identify the killer before she herself becomes the next victim. Everyone is convinced she knows more than she lets on. But what is it, exactly, that is she supposed to know?

What a good time I had reading this book. First of all, it’s about a group of book lovers who belong to a book club. But this book club is unlike any I’ve ever heard of before. All the members are ex-cons. Yep, you can only join if you have a white-collar criminal record.
I love a good murder mystery, and these murders where mirrored from the books the club read. I loved that!!
Hollis took the wrap for something her her ex did, and now that she’s out she just wants to have a normal life. So much for wants… the book club she joins is about to have one of it’s members murdered. Then another is murdered. Hollis is afraid before it’s over, she’s going to be arrest for the murders, so she’s more than determined to find the true killer.
The story line was interesting, as were the characters. The book flows steady without any dull gaps. I really liked the authors way of writing.
I’ve never read anything by this author before, so I’m glad I decided to join this tour. The book is good and it keeps you reading till the end. I definitely want to read more from the author.
If you love a good murder mystery, you should get a copy of this book.
