Atlanta, Georgia
March 2002

Detective Patrick Kelly, Tick to his friends, signed out of his precinct and headed to his car, an eight-year-old Saturn with 120,000 miles on it. It purred like a baby when he turned the key. Then it sputtered and died. He'd give it too much gas and flooded the engine.
Friday 56:
"So what are you going to do, Kate?"

"Finish up my thesis. Write a cookbook."

Sandy laughed. "You don't know how to cook."
This week I am spotlighting Southern Comfort by Fern Michaels. I bought this Kindle and audiobook February 3, 2021. Here is the description from Amazon:
A DEA agent in Florida encounters a seductive suspect in this romantic and emotional thriller from the New York Times bestselling author…

Atlanta homicide detective Patrick "Tick" Kelly turned his back on the world the day his wife and children were murdered. Holed up in a beach shack on Mango Key, Florida, he drowned his grief in Jack Daniels. Now sober and a bestselling author, Tick would gladly stay a recluse forever if his brother Pete didn't keep trying to drag him back to the land of the living.

After years of sacrificing her personal life in favor of her DEA job, special agent Kate Rush resigned and moved back to her native Miami. But the unofficial assignment that has just come her way is too intriguing to pass up. She and a fellow ex-agent are relocated to Mango Key to keep an eye on an imposing, mysterious fortress believed to be at the center of a human trafficking ring. At first, the Kelly brothers are suspected of involvement, but Kate is sure Tick poses no danger--except for the slow-burning gaze that makes her breath catch and her heart race. . .


  1. Sounds like a great read!! Happy weekend!

  2. This one looks interesting, and I like the quotes. I have to admit that when I first saw the cover I thought the book would be about something else.

  3. I'm laughing at the 56. Two very different things the speaker is planning to write.

  4. I've never read Fern Michaels. Maybe one of these days.

  5. I remember my mother-in-law's Saturn . . . They don't make those cars anymore, do they? I love that Friday 56 excerpt. I had to laugh. :-) I hope you have a great weekend!
