A Book in Review: Gone with a Handsomer Man
I just finished reading 'Gone with a Handsomer Man' by Michael Lee West... literally, like 5 minutes ago. I got this book for my mom as a Christmas gift. She read it quickly and passed it on to me. I am glad that she did. Yes, it is a quick read, but it is fun. I did not know what to expect, because I had never read one of Michael Lee West's books before.
I do not like when I find out things early on in the book. In this one, I didn't figure stuff out until just before the book revealed it to me. I have read that other readers figured out the whole story at the beginning and they were sad about this. I am glad this did not happen for me.
I believe that I was in the mood for a light read and this did the trick. I am looking forward to reading other books by Michael Lee West and definitely her sequel to 'Gone with a Handsomer Man' titled 'A Teeny Bit of Trouble'.
If you would like to read a quick and fun Murder mystery, pick up 'Gone with a Handsomer Man'.
3 out of 5 stars, I liked it
Here is a list of Michael Lee West's other novels:
Mad Girls in Love
