Title: Jenny’s Blue Velvet
Author: Angela Carlie
Genre: Romantic Thriller
She’s tried just about every occupation she can think of and will be digging out of student debt for a very long time, but has nothing to show for it. Her everyday routine feels like a prison. And her marriage? Well, let’s just say it’s been a little one-sided lately and the money she threw down on the toys from Lover’s Erotic Store was well worth it and then some.
Jenny decides her next big step is to become a romance writer. Romance books are flying off the virtual shelves, after all. This will be her big break, her escape from the prison, and a way to freedom. Self-publishing is all the rage these days. She’ll be a best seller in no time.
When Jenny makes friends with a woman named Cassandra from the gym, she instantly decides that her new friend will make a perfect main character in her upcoming book. After the first chapter, real life begins to resemble the fiction she’s writing. Her friendship blossoms, sex with her husband turns into a daily feast, and her job gets more interesting with each chapter written.
Out of the blue, a person who is a close friend with her husband and who is dating Cassandra disappears. As the mystery behind the missing person unfolds, Jenny wonders if she might be responsible for his possible death. And if she is, what will be the consequence? What has this writing business gotten her into?
Jenny’s Blue Velvet was an interesting read. The first half was an okay read. I read through it quite fast. The second half was far better, though. The twists and turns were so unexpected that I had to reread some parts just to make sure I was reading it right and my mind wasn’t playing tricks on me. It was refreshingly unexpected and I was truly shocked.
The book was told through Jenny’s eyes and although the characters weren’t all that memorable but it was developed enough to make the plot twist work. I found Jenny and Jason’s relationship to be interesting. I was wondering throughout the book if their marriage will make it or not.
The author did an awesome job keeping me guessing the whole time and when she delivered the biggest twist of all, it was awesome and I couldn’t put the book down at all. It was definitely a page-turner.
Jenny’s Blue Velvet was heart-breaking, mysterious, and thrilling. It was a very interesting read and I enjoyed it a lot. It was better than what I expected and was one of the strangest books I’ve read in a long time. You will be thinking about it for a few days, if not weeks, after reading it. If you’re looking for an exciting, interesting, strange, and thrilling book with unexpected twists and turns, Jenny’s Blue Velvet will not disappoint you.
