You might already know Susan from her blog Everything Susan. If you do, hurrah! If you do not, I encourage you to visit. Susan has a warm spirit and pleasant nature that resonates with her readers. And she is now a published author too!!
New in Town was published in the summer of 2013, so it is fairly new to the market, and looking to obtain its audience. It is a very well-written short story (62 pages) about a young woman who moves to Toronto to start her life anew. Knowing only a cousin who lives in the same apartment building, Morag sets about to live her new life to the fullest, and is well on her way to doing so, when a series of unthinkables begin to happen. Without killing the mystery for you (pun intended), I will note that there is a man involved, a good looking one at that; a break-in; and a resulting case that must be solved.
The power of friendship and family support comes alive in this short story, in ways that you would never expect, and the story leaves you longing for more long after the last page of it has been closed. I cannot help but wonder what path Morag will take after the grand finale, and my last thought after reading, was this book deserves a sequel. :)
You can learn more about the book by visiting Amazon. It is available on Kindle for $1.99.
