for Sophie's Last Stand
Date of Review: 07/06/05
"Like A Fish Needs A Bicycle!!!" is the mantra that sassy Sophie Mazzaratti used when it came to men. She is done with men after she get rid of her sleazy ex. Well, at least she thought she was done with men. Her mind is changed though when she makes a move in order to get a fresh start in New Bern, North Carolina. One sexy detective named Gray Evans is making her rethink her stance on men. Will he be around though at the end of her trials and tribulations? See, trouble has followed Sophie to her new home. Dead bodies, exploding cars, drive by shootings, and break-ins, the FBI, and oh yeah...the mob have also arrived. Well, Sophie has had enough and she won't take it any more. With help from her family, her dad's friends, and yummy Gray things will be put to rights...right?
Sophie is a heroine for today's lady!!! She can take on the bullies by herself (and innocent plumbers as well but you have to read the book), but still have the good sense to know a good thing when she sees it. In this case our hero Gray. Gray on the other hand is sexy, strong, but not in an over powering way! In other words a perfect couple. Ms. Bartholomew has added a new twist to the romantic suspense genre. This story is penned in 1st person POV, with laugh out loud moments, quirky secondary characters, and slowly built sensuality that is toe curling. In other words, this is a book you won't want to overlook!
