Review: Gossip by Clara Grace Walker

Gossip is actually book two of the Desire Never Dies trilogy by Clara Grace Walker. This book stares Nick Beck, a tabloid publisher, in his dog-eat-dog world of magazine gossip.

Basically, Nick’s wife is murdered. And Nick, as well as the police, are determined to find out who did it. In a swirling world of tabloid publication and slander, Nick’s got to find the truth. His favorite freelance photographer, Jamie, is his detective partner. Nick’s got to talk to all kinds of people, and dig up quite a few dirty stories along the way, in order to find the truth about his wife’s death.

At first, I didn’t think I was going to like the book. But I kept reading, and was soon sucked so far in that I couldn’t stop in the middle. There’s a lot of sex scandal issues in the book, so if you don’t have the stomach for that, then stop while you’re ahead. But if that doesn’t bother you, then this is an intriguing murder mystery from a non-cop point of view.

I like that the characters are real. Flaws and all. They’re greedy or angry or scared by turns, and they make stupid decisions. But in the end, the good guys come out a head. Mostly.

If you like the sound of this one, you can find Gossip on Amazon or via the author’s website. This book is also featured in the Rave Reviews Book Club, which is how I found it.
