The Queen of Cool--Claudia Hall Christian
As a member of Business2Blogger, I was given an opportunity to read and review the first 6 chapters of a serial fiction called The Queen of Cool by Claudia Hall Christian. Also, when the book comes out in April 2012, I will be getting a copy for free...yay!! :)
Returning from her husband's funeral, Lorraine 'Lo' Downs discovers her home has been foreclosed. The Queen of Cool follows Lo as she works to put her life together and tries to find out what happened to her and her husband.
I have to say, I absolutely loved it! I read the first 6 chapters straight through...no stopping! It was great! I kept finding myself wanting to know what happens next. It just gets more and more interesting as the story unfolds. After only the first chapter, I felt such a strong connection to the main character. I truly cared for her...It was like I knew her personally.
You can't even imagine the complete disappointment that came over me when I finished the 6th chapter, and thought I would have to wait to find out what was going to happen. Lucky for me, I was given a membership to the Queen of Cool Club, which allows you to read the chapters as they are released. Ha! The suspense would have tormented me if I would have had to wait until April to read the rest!
I was so into reading, that I even ignored phone calls while I was reading. That's something that never happens in my house. Ignore a phone call?!...Are you crazy?! But I did it...I had to! I just couldn't stop reading. This is definitely one of the best books I've read in a really long time. I can't wait to read the rest of it!
Does all my talk about The Queen of Cool make you want to read it? You can. You can read each chapter as they come out, (as well as past chapters), by joining the Queen of Cool Club for just $12 .
If you have the willpower, you could wait til April 2012 to buy the book. You can also try to win a copy! Claudia has graciously agreed to let me hold a giveaway for you, my readers! There will be 2 prizes! One winner will receive a membership to the Queen of Cool Club, and one winner will get a copy of the book when it becomes available in April 2012! How cool is that?!
(Giveaway is no longer open. Thank you to those who participated and congrats to the winners!)
