The title says it all, except for the sort of double meaning or really triple meaning of the title that you won't get until the end of the story. Not sure if this is meant as dark comedy, but it's a keeper.
It takes a lot to get my attention, but East Garrison grabbed mine right away. I'm familiar with Fort Ord and the details in this book brought back memories. I bought a hard copy at one of the author events and had it signed. I like it so much that I bought her second edition in E-book format because of the cool stuff she added to it—photos of settings in the book, a map where every major event happened, and even a new chapter about the beast…mountain lion. Well worth the couple dollars.
This reads like a smart detective mini-novel. I didn't want to put this down. Reminded me of a Stephen King story with very good characterizations. The title is great. I highly recommend this and the author’s other work.
Kind of a sweet story with some of the elements of romance that are written in a way that rings true (we all have fantasies about)...especially once we hit forty-plus. Having a crush on a blue-collar worker is universal for women, isn't it? But then what would I know?!
