One of the first books I read after I started this blog in 2006 was Lost and Found, by Carolyn Parkhurst. It was a fictionalized account of a TV competition show based on "The Amazing Race". Here was my review. While I found a few faults with the book, I did enjoy it. (It's so funny to read old reviews – I was such a newbie blogger back then!)
Parkhurst has a new book coming out in June, and I just got a review copy in the mail, thanks to Doubleday. (Hi FTC!). It's called The Nobodies Album, and here is the blurb from the marketing department at Doubleday: "Carolyn's novel is a terrific
story about a successful writer, Octavia Frost, who learns that her son is
accused of his girlfriend's murder via (of all things) the news feed in Times
Square. Even though they have been estranged, she travels to California to be
with him. As they try to patch up their relationship, surprising facts about
the murder emerge."
I like the sound of this book, and I like the author. So this is going in the TBR pile! I will let you know how I like it!
