THE BUG JAR – A Book Review
There’s a new girl in town, and she is a force to be reckoned with. Ava Black debuted her first book September 16, 2108 to rave reviews. While it’s not my typical read, I enjoyed it immensely. And maybe that’s why I enjoyed it so much…because it is not my typical read, or even yours. But don’t miss it! It’s thrilling to find a book that doesn’t follow a typical pattern, that doesn’t always conform to the standard subject material. Don’t get me wrong, it has everything I love in a book; it’s quick paced, exciting, never drags. But it has elements that may surprise you. Should you root for the heroine? Or is she an anti-hero? Read this book…decide for yourself. You won’t be disappointed, and will in fact be thrilled to have discovered a new, talented author on her rise to the top.
Barnes and Noble describes THE BUG JAR:
“For make-up salesgirl Samantha Holland, life is a constant struggle to cling to reality. Her tenuous hold on sanity is exacerbated by a toxic affair with wealthy and powerful State Representative Richard Harrison, who gets sadistic pleasure toying with her already confused mind. But Sam comes closest to losing her grip when Harrison’s emotionally disturbed stepson is murdered—and the police suspect her. When Harrison tries to break off their relationship, Sam tries to save herself by piecing together patchy memories of what might be her own involvement in the killing. The truth she uncovers is more sinister than she could have imagined.”

Let me make a prediction: I predict The BUG JAR will be made into a major motion picture. And you can say, “Hey! I read that book, way back when!”
