OMG is all I have to say. I was asked to participate in a blog tour surrounding the newest book from Margot Hunt, and my immediate answer was YES!
First off, I only came across Hunt's work last year, when I picked up For Better and Worse. My book club loves psychological thrillers, so we ended up selecting it as one of our book club's monthly picks. I love any type of thriller/mystery that sparks discussion, especially from a morality/ethics standpoint. After reading this, I went straight to the library to pick up her other novel, Best Friends Forever. It was twisty and engaging...exactly what I needed to get out of a reading slump.
And now...she finally has a new book out on November 26.
Introducing The Last Affair...and I have an excerpt for you to read! (scroll down).
Margot Hunt is a critically acclaimed author of psychological suspense. Her work has been praised by Publisher's Weekly, Booklist and Kirkus Reviews.
Gwen Landon—poster woman for perfect wife, mother, and suburban bliss—is found brutally
bludgeoned to death behind her Floridian McMansion. Beautiful and beloved by her community, Gwen makes an unlikely victim. But just a scratch below the surface of her perfectly curated world reveals one far more sinister. When looking back over the six months leading up to her death, the question of, “who would do this?” quickly shifts to, “who wouldn’t?” Commercially successful food blogger and mother of three, Nora Holliday never imagined she would have the nerve, let alone time, to get involved an affair. Trapped in an unhappy marriage, she does whatever it takes to keep it all together. But when Nora runs into Gwen Landon's husband at a hotel in Orlando, his easy kindness and warmth proves too tempting to resist. As their affair spirals dangerously out of control, it seems things can’t get more complicated—until Gwen turns up dead.
