Hold a Scorpion: A Diana Poole Thriller by Melodie Johnson-Howe

When Diana goes out her front door to do some errands, she sees a lady on the other side of the freeway.  She's waving at her.  Diana has no idea who she is.  As she watches a black SUV pulls up.  The person in it scares her and she runs across the freeway.  She's hit and killed.  The cops want to know who she is.  Diana can't answer that question...

Pegasus Books and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published October 25th.

If you want to read a story with unconventional characters, this book is for you.  Diana is an actress, following in her mother's footsteps.  Her neighbor is an oddball writer that has developed a new girlfriend who has ulterior motives.  The health rehabilitation center where the victim lived is strange.  So are the employees.  Add in Diane's old boyfriend, a scorpion bracelet that used to belong to her mother and another actress that competes with her for parts.  If that's not enough for you, her dead mother is still alive.  See what I meant?

It was interesting read, kept my attention and kept me going.  I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out but it ended better than I expected.  Trust me, you won't be bored if you have a good imagination.
