Review - A Penny For Your Thoughts by Bess McBride
Title: A Penny For Your Thoughts
Author: Bess McBride
Publisher: Wild Rose Press
Available February 2010 From The Wild Rose Press
Rating: You Gotta Read
Penny Brown is a therapist in Michigan who works diligently to help each and every one of her clients. She genuinely wants to help them work through their problems. However, she can't always help them. She finds that cold truth out in the most disturbing of ways. Her client engages her in a phone conversation that ends in tragedy. This incident throws Penny into a tailspin from which she may never recover. To help her try, she goes on a sabbatical to the Gulf Coast.
Matt Williams is now the Chief of Police in a small town on the Gulf Coast. One of the most important women in his life walked out on him 15 years ago. He has struggled to move on and keep his options open. One divorce and a few years later, he is still trying. Little does he know that that long-ago love is about to come crashing back into his life.
When I began reading this book, it was New Year's Eve. I read until 1:00 in the morning without even taking note of the year change. This story is engrossing, gripping, suspenseful and undeniably one of the best romantic suspense stories ever written. Ms. McBride knits together a plotline fraught with twists and turns that leaves the reader guessing as to the path to be taken next. To say this is a page-turner is an understatment. I couldn't wait to see not only the mystery solved, but to see how, when and if Matt and Penny would resolve their long unquenched desire for one another. I believe the lesson to be learned from this book is that no matter what you think, there always are possibilities in life and in love. Without question, Bess McBride has knocked another one out of the park.
