If you love an action packed adventure written by someone who understands how to grip you from the first sentence and hold you until the end, you need to read this book.
I was recently asked to review Sharp Shooter by Marianne Delacourt. Being a huge fan of Marianne’s books I eagerly agreed. This book didn’t disappoint.
SYNOPSIS: Tara Sharp can see auras, and it’s ruining her life.
When she tries to turn her inconvenient secret into a paying gig, her first job lands her in the middle of a tug of war between the biggest, baddest crime lord in town and the hottest business man Tara has ever met.
With only a narcoleptic ex-roadie, her pet galah and a vanilla slice for back up, Tara is ready to take on trouble with a capital ‘T’.
Sharp Shooter is a hilarious, action-packed novel and Tara Sharp is Triple F: Funny. Fast. Feisty.
WINNER of the Davitt Award 2010 Best Crime Novel and nominated for Ned Kelly Award 2010 Best First Crime Novel
This highly unusual hero reads auras and is at first scared of her ability. But when she meets a mentor who helps her understand how unique her ability is and how it can be used to help other people she is off on a life-changing adventure. Strong, compassionate and dependable she is drawn into the lives of other people and puts herself in great danger to help them.
This book has a fast pace that we are used to from Marianne and the hero’s unusual abilities, feisty attitude and loyalty to her friends and family endear her to the reader. While it could be considered a crime novel, it also has the flavour of chic lit novel.
I am a fan of Marianne’s books and this one didn’t disappoint. I can’t wait for the next.
