It’s Raining Reviews!

Early reviews are in for my eleventh novel, THE EX.

“Who cares?” you say? “I want to know what it’s about.”TheEx_hc c

Hey, thanks for asking.  It’s about Olivia Randall, a New York City defense attorney who has to face some old demons when her ex-fiance gets himself into some deep, deep trouble.

If your ex was in danger, how far would you go to save him or her?  That’s a theme I’ll be talking about a lot once the book’s out.

“Who cares what it’s about?” you say?  “Tell me about the reviews!”

Publishers Weekly calls it “gripping” with “an appealingly bold protagonist…Burke keeps the supsense high throughout, prying open mysteriest of relationships and perception.”  Kirkus agrees, saying it “features smooth, engaging writing; a sharp, funny edge; and characters worth investing in.  Burke has created some memorable female protagonists over the years, but Olivia might be the cream of the crop.”

The cream of the crop, people!  That’s some good cream.  Not that I read reviews or anything.

Learn more about THE EX here.  And while you’re at it, why not pre-order a copy?  Be sure to save your receipt, because my publisher will soon be unlocking the details of a fun pre-order promotion.  Yep, “unlock” was a clue.  Stay tuned for details!
