I Make a Romance! (wa wa wee wa)

THE MARK by Jason Pinter
Romance Reader at Heart
"Top Pick"

I have to admit this. THE MARK by Jason Pinter took me by total surprise. It wasn't at all what I expected it to be. Oh my, it was so much better than I ever dreamed it would be. This, for me at least, is a case of not being able to gauge a book by its cover. With its no-nonsense, non-flowery cover, I thought THE MARK would be heavy on suspense, light on romance. Was I ever wrong. Big time!

The story of an eager young journalist who is looking to make his mark on the writing world, this book is the perfect blend of mystery and romance. Henry comes to New York with limited funds, a failing relationship with his current girlfriend and a bright mind. When he gets caught up in a tangled plot of murder and corruption, his bright mind turns out to be his biggest asset. That, and a woman he meets while attempting to escape death, are the two things Henry can count on. I was on the edge of my seat as I read, wondering if the couple would find a way out of Henry's mess, and find a way into each other's arms.

I won't let on how this book ends, but I will say that Jason Pinter has a new reader. THE MARK is an excellent book and Jason Pinter is a talented writer. I loved this and I look forward to reading more from this author.
