Almost True Confessions: Closet Sleuth Spills All
Rannie Bookman is a divorced mother of two teens who works in New York City as a copy editor. Since a massive mistake at her full-time job at one publisher, though, she’s been freelancing to get by. When a friend gives her the opportunity to edit a top-secret manuscript, she naturally jumps at it. But when she goes to pick up the materials from the reclusive writer, she finds the woman dead. After one foray into solving a murder (in a previous book), Rannie can’t help but want to figure out whodunit in this new case. As she navigates her life of parenting and kind-of-dating a former cop, all while trying to make ends meet, she happens upon clues and figures out ways to find more. Her connections to high society (such as the former mother-in-law with whom she is still close) help as she investigates what could be the link between the manuscript she’s editing and the death of its tell-all author. But what price will she pay for satisfying her natural curiosity?
Almost True Confessions is an entertaining read, particularly for those of us who also happen to be copy editors. But it’s enjoyable for everyone else wanting a light murder mystery, too.
