"What is my Italian baby doing with that Irish cop?" is what Rita's mom is thinking.
"Why would 'Twinkle-Toes' pair up with such a brute?" is what Rita's training Sargent is thinking.
'How can my partner be so blinded by that dirty cop?" is what Rita's NYPD partner is thinking.
But Rita is thinking that this is the answer from the psychic at the shopping mall. Rita is the perfect example of eyes closed instead of open wide. Seeing things from her rose colored glasses while her fingers are crossed behind her back. Coming across on the job as a hard nose NYPD transit officer but inside still being the ballerina princess she once dreamed of.
I am so enjoying reading 'In Transit' by award winner Kathleen Gerard. It is great for a mid summer read out on the front porch. Of course I love to curl up with a good book, it is the most relaxing part of summer for me. Kathleen Gerard, who I first heard on NPR, manages to write with both the true grit of a police suspense novel while carrying over the dew-eyed romance novel. Not an easy task to do. 'In Transit', thankfully, does not come across as a fluff piece. Instead it is compelling, carrying me through the maze of love mixed up on the police force.
I do wish to thank Tribute Books for sending me the advance copy of 'In Transit' and allowing me to be part of their blog tour. Pop over to meet some great book reviewers and hopefully some new friends too. Now it is time for me to go back out to the porch, laze in front of the big ol fan out there and get back to my new friend Rita. I wonder how she is going to get through the mess her life is muddling into? Wanna join me?
