Welcome to Down and Dead, Inc., where, to Live, Sometimes Ya Gotta Die.

MINDING YOUR OWN BUSINESS DOESN’T KEEP TROUBLE AWAY

Daisy Grant is in a heap of trouble. Minding her own business, walking to her car after leaving work, she stumbles into a mob turf war and now somebody wants her dead. Actually, several somebodies want her dead. She may be small-town to the bone, not at all the type of woman to deal with the Southern Mafia, but being on her own most of her life has taught her how to get creative fast!

NATURALLY THEN IS WHEN YOU MEET THE MAN OF YOUR DREAMS

The way-too-attractive restaurant owner, Mark Jensen. He didn’t mean to rescue anybody just by offering them a job, and he certainly didn’t mean to endanger his business or himself and need go on the run because of a stubborn, sassy woman. But things rarely work out the way we intend, and in survival situations, a man does what a man has to do.

THE PROBLEM IS WHO TO TRUST. WHO IS GOOD? WHO IS BAD? HOW DO YOU TELL WHEN THEY ALL SEEM HALF-CRAZY?

Soon Daisy and Mark are up to their ears in so many wacky characters with secret agendas it is impossible to know for fact who is after them and who is on their side.

HARD TRUTHS ARE INEVITABLE

As events unfold, Daisy and Mark learn many hard-knock lessons about life. The most important one?

To live, sometimes ya gotta die. And sometimes dying right takes…practice.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a well written novel 5 star novel, as it is well written.Vickie Hinze is well known for her suspense novels, with edge of the seat action.  Told exclusively from the viewpoint of Daisy Grant, there is nothing to distract the reader from what is happening to her. Just as you can not know exactly what another person is thinking or feeling, so you see and know only what Daisy does. In this case, it means that you know every thought she thinks and dreams she has, which comes out in a lot of internalization. This did seem to me to slow down the action dramatically, but also allowed the author to introduce twists and turns that I as the reader never saw coming! This story explores the issues of mob turf war between two powerful families and of being in the wrong place at the wrong time and becoming involved in something completely outside of you comfort zone, as well as how sometimes you need someone else's help. I received this book free from Fred at The Book Club Network and the author Vickie Hinze in exchange for an honest review. A positive critique was not required. The opinions are my own
