Dear Kara: I am an author from Massachusetts. My debut novel HUNTING THE KING was published in April. I’m hoping its something you might have an interest in based upon your library of books.HUNTING is a fast-paced page-turner that follows archaeologist Molly O'Dwyer into war torn Iraq in search of the remains of Jesus. Molly was five years old when she witnessed her mother die in a fire. She never knew her father, and after her mother’s death was raised on the campus of a Jesuit university. ForeWord Magazine says: "Fans of intellectual thrillers and historical fiction will find a worthy new voice in Clenott. His best invention may be Molly O’Dwyer, a genuinely likable heroine who more than holds her own in a man’s world. An ambitious scientist, she is also an observant Catholic whose heart and mind don’t always agree. Given such an auspicious start, the sequel can't come too soon." To get a good sense of how exciting the novel is check out the heart-pounding trailer for the book on YouTube. Thanks.Peter
Hi Kara,Sorry for the delay- I actually started "Secret Life of Lobsters" but had great difficulty getting into it. I thought I'd love it, but I have put it down for now and will try coming back to it later. What do you think about it?Caitlin
Welcome to Better than Starbucks! Look around, make yourself at home, start a new thread or dig up an old one or just read and jump in on the more active ones.
You're very welcome.
Hi Kara,I really enjoyed it, and it taught me so much about something I knew nothing about! I read his other book on sushi, and liked it, so I decided that I would read this one, and was really pleasantly surprised. : ) Who knew that there was so much to know about lobsters? Since I live in Colorado, I had to run to the internet to look up the islands he talks about, and for photos of a lobster trap so I could visualize it when he talked about it, so fascinating! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. : )Nora Su
