I Covet This Book

I had to do some routine grocery shopping for my mom today, and as always I am drawn to the small section of books in the store. I never buy anything there, because the books are full price, and I'm cheap like that.

I didn't expect to find anything that I'd really like to buy, but I did. This new one by Karen Hawkin's looks fab!

Something about the title, Lois Lane Tells All really grabbed me, as well as that cute little pooch on the front cover. Yes, I'm a sucker for animals, dogs or cats, it makes no difference.

Then I made the mistake. I touched the book. And turned it over...and read the blurb!!

She thinks she’s Lois Lane . . .Susan Collins always wanted to be a hard-hitting reporter, but there’s not much call for her talents in sleepy Glory, North Carolina. Then the Murder Mystery Club—a trio of enterprising octogenarians—decides to open their own CSI lab at the assisted-living center. And when strange "accidents" begin to happen around town, Susan senses she could be on to the news story of her dreams.He doesn’t want to be her Superman . . .Mark Tremayne has returned to Glory to take over as CFO of The Glory Examiner. His job is to keep the newspaper profitable, which means covering the annual Baptist Church Bake-Off and selling ads for the county fair—not allowing his too-sexy-for-her-own-good reporter to hare off after a wild story that could alienate some of the townspeople.Together . . . they’re Kryptonite.Mark’s and Susan’s viewpoints could be from different planets, but their mutual attraction is in total alignment. Despite their arguments, the indomitable redhead and the hot accountant are a sexual explosion waiting to happen. And when it does, Glory had better watch out!

Now its wishlisted because I will not pay full price for a book when I can get a discount at B & N or Books-A-Million.

Have I mentioned my Amazon wishlist is looking scarier by the minute?
