The Bloody Mary Club Book Review and Giveaway

Thank you for stopping at my spot on The Bloody Mary Club Blog Tour. This Virtual Book Tour is brought to you by Pump Up Your Books. I will provide you with a synopsis of the book, review, excerpt and a small bio from Debbie Dyke. Visit the other blogs on this Book Tour to learn more about this book.

 Stock market meltdown. United States housing bubble. Global financial crisis. Chief executives cooking the books. Who can you trust for financial advice? Gina Van Story, a savvy 40ish investment advisor to the rescue. She can spot a trend on the market and jump on it like a cat. She dreams of grabbing the bull by the horns and is on the hunt for one final big score. Gina and her three best friends form the Bloody Mary Investment Club and come face-to-face with corruption in a David and Goliath struggle when their stock portfolio turns deadly…literally.
Over made-to-order Bloody Mary cocktails at historic Gadsby’s Tavern, Gina takes her friends under her wing and teaches them the ins and outs of the stock market. Trouble begins when, following Gina’s bullish advice, they become majority owners in the local bank and then stubbornly turn down a lucrative buyout offer. Not only will money and greed challenge their friendship, they will have to get smart fast and figure out how to turn the tables on the charmingly seductive, yet evil,  banker who wants control of their stock by any means necessary – including murder!

My Review:

I really found The Bloody Mary Club to be an interesting book.  I couldn't wait to see what happened, it kept me turning the pages.

Gina had a great personality and was very believable.  After reading only a short bit of the book I felt like I knew the investment group well enough to be my friends.  I liked how each one was described. It was good to see they were like the friends you and I have - they teased each other and told them the truth when it was needed. In reading the story I liked how each had different opinions and also reacted differently to the issues that arose after becoming major owners in a local bank.

What happens to the investment club when they are offered a buyout offer? How do they work together to keep control of their stocks? Is everyone safe?  You will need to read The Bloody Mary Club to find out what happens. If you like thrillers I think you will find this fast paced book a good one.

I received a Copy of this book from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for the review, and the review is honest and my responsibility.
