Blog Tour & Giveaway: Rumors by Stephanie Abrams

A Little about Rumors

Conspiracies, secrets, lies, scandals and loves are woven into the intrigue of the business and personal lives of Frank, and his young wife Maisy, their family and friends, as rumors swirl around them and the company Frank joins on his search for a more confrotable life. Warned by Maisy's dad, a retired Nassau County, NY police officer, that disaster awaits if he accepts a job at this local company, based on unprovable rumors about the corporation, Frank's need to make a better life for himself and Maisy result in the lives of all around them being sucked into danger. Rumors abound, like a tornado sweeping through the family and community, threaten the lives, livelihoods, and love relationships of family, friends, and acquaintances in this Long Island community! A glimpse into Frank's welcoming ceremony into the company sets the stage for the intrigue that follows.

My Review
RumorsRumors by Stephanie Abrams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Deceit, twisted plots, opportunistic backstabbing characters, Rumors has it all.

Mystery novels are not my go to genre BUT having said that after reading Rumors I might be more inclined to check it out more often.
Stephanie does a good job involving you with the characters and wrapping you into the story.
You get sucked into the worlds of these selfish, self entered, unfortunate characters.

I particularly liked how everything and everyone seemed to be linked together.

There are many stories happening at the same time. I particularly liked Allison story. The Rumors that were manufactured against her changed her entire life. Melanie's story made me laugh at times with her perseverance trying to get her ideas for the flowers on the bema (that were plastic, tacky, and dusty) conceptualized. Newlyweds Frank and Maisy get more than they bargain while trying to create a life together.

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed the story with its many twist and turns.

My favorite quote from the book:
"People are crazy and I'm not going to make myself crazy trying to sort them out"
Yep that pretty much sums it up.
