I broke my ban from Amazon again! But I had to. My friend Attica Locke’s second novel, The Cutting Season, just came out. I simply can’t wait to read it! The reviews have been stellar so far and she made it on Oprah’s top 10 must-reads in O Magazine this month.
I loved her debut novel, Black Water Rising. It was a page-turner and I know this next one will be as well. There’s something about Attica’s writing that I can’t get enough of. Yes, there’s the broader thriller, mystery, suspense aspects that take you for a ride, but it’s the intensely personal, intelligent and intimate layers that touch me on a deeper level. She not only entertains, but she also makes me think. And that is my favorite combination.
Until tomorrow, create from what you have…books that entertain and make you think.
