I apologize for the late post. I thought today was Saturday. It is not. Sigh.
I recently read Good Sam by Dete Meserve. It's a cute romance mystery set in LA. The first person voice is of a news reporter covering a story on Good Sam. Dete does a great job telling the tale and it feels as though she knows what she's writing about. A lot of good inside information and lingo. If you're interested in the book, act now. It's on sale for 99 cents and I'm not sure how long the price will last.
After years covering murders, disasters, and tragedy for Los Angeles TV news, Kate Bradley knows that violence and cruelty are everywhere and that good is hard to find. When she is assigned to cover a story about ten people who have each found $100,000 in cash on their front porch, Kate is intrigued by the anonymous Good Samaritan, dubbed Good Sam, who is behind it all. As interest in the extraordinary gifts sweeps across the country, Kate finds the elusive Good Sam and her exclusive interview with him thrusts her into the national spotlight. Even as his message captivates viewers and wins ratings, Kate suspects he may not be all he claims to be and that the real Good Sam is still out there. Searching for answers, Kate unravels the powerful and unexpected reason behind the mysterious cash gifts and the true identity of Good Sam becomes the biggest surprise story of her career, turning her personal and professional life upside down.
