Have you ever started reading a book and couldn’t put it down? In fact, you missed out on hours and hours of sleep because you read until your eyes blurred? Well, that’s the experience I had after starting to read Nora’s new book…The Witness. Of course, it’s not technically new since it has a copyright of 2012, but it’s new to me.
Oh, and just to let you know, it happens to be her 200th published book. Kinda cool, right? Now let me tell you what kept me reading late, late, late into the night…two nights running…until I finished it. It starts out with a sixteen year old girl…Elizabeth…who has a domineering mother that rivals Mommy Dearest except that the woman puts Mommy Dearest way, way out in left field. Then comes the day that Elizabeth rebels and that starts a chain of events that has deadly consequences.
Now, I’m going to try like crazy not to ruin the story for you if you haven’t read it yet, but I will tell you that Elizabeth finds a way to pay back the bad guy while still getting the good guy in the end. I know, I know, that doesn’t tell you much, but, hey, I don’t want to ruin it for you! I’ll just tell you what Nora chose to tell you on the cover:
“Elizabeth Fitch’s short-lived teenage rebellion began with L’Oreal Pure Black, a pair of scissors and a fake ID. It ended in blood.”
So, if you have a few free hours…okay, maybe a bit longer since it’s 468 pages…and want to fall in love with a woman who learns to be strong and the hunky guy who falls in love with her, then you’re going to really enjoy The Witness. (Available on Amazon)
Also, at the end of the book, she gives a peek into her next book…The Collector that will be out in April 2014. I can’t wait to read it. HAPPY READING !!!!
