The Bloody Mary Club by Debbie Dyke
In this day and age of stock market scandals and banking woes most aren’t eager to read anything dealing with financial issues. However, author Debbie Dyke has put a fun and interesting spin on the situation resulting in a delightful mystery, THE BLOODY MARY CLUB.
Savvy 40ish investment advisor Gina Van Story puts her talents to use and talks her three best friends into forming the Bloody Mary Investment Club. Gina teaches her friends the ins and outs of the stock market while they enjoy made-to-order Bloody Mary cocktails at the historic Gadsby’s Tavern.
All seems to be going well as they become majority owners in the local bank. However, trouble begins when they turn down a lucrative buyout offer for their part in the bank. Gina is attacked, threats are made and friendships become strained. To make matters worse, the man trying to buy them out is not only charming and seductive but possibly capable of murder.
Dyke has created a witty and charming protagonist in Gina. She’s strong, independent and loyal to her friends. All of the characters are well developed and feature realistic traits making the story more plausible. The friends can bicker among themselves, but stand as one against trouble as true friends do.
The story overall moves at a good pace and holds your interest. It has charm and intrigue. While there are financial terms used that slow the story a bit, they are necessary for the plot.
THE BLOODY MARY CLUB is a tantalizing read that will have you smiling about financial woes. Can’t wait to see what Gina invests in next.
