Review: Savage Summer

For this review, I chose Savage Summer by Ruth Bainbridge and my first book by this author.  I love that I am reading authors that I have not read before.

I received a copy of the ebook for a honest review of this book.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
“When life gives you lemons … be sure to spit the pits out of that lemonade you’re making. Otherwise you’ll choke.” – Curt Savage

The past year has not been a good one for Curt Savage. Depressed over the death of a loved one, he’s gone into hiding, becoming entirely too comfortable with saying that he’s in the Witness Protection Program. But the urge to find that elusive killer puts his MIA status on hold. With the help of his new buddy Mike, he delves into the murky world of tracking down a killer — and uncovering who poisoned a neighbor’s dog. 

SAVAGE SUMMER is the first in the Curt Savage mystery series. Going from former cop to private dick, he represents a new kind of detective—the reluctant kind. As his best bud Mike puts it, “Private investigation just got Savage.”

This book was not the normal type of books I normally read, but the description caught my eye.  I knew I had to read it.  There was mysteries that I had to know.  

How do you go on after losing the one you are to marry?  Everything Curt does reminds him of Ruth.  Curt was investigated for Ruth's murder by his fellow police co-workers.  His best friend, Mike, is a lesbian private investigator.  She is a woot!!  She is definitely colorful. 

Cliffhanger at the end of book was something else.  I can not wait to read book #2, Savage Fall, to find out all of my answers to my questions.  This was one of those books that I could not put down.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Would I recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!
Would I read more from this author? Yes!

Happy Reading!
