Hollis Morgan is focused on getting her life back on track. She was sidelined when her ex-husband framed her for his fraudulent activities and she ended up in jail. She started a new life and is working on getting her record expunged – all with the help of her book club. The club is unique in that only white-collar criminals are allowed in. When members start dying, though, Hollis must work to find out who is behind the murders before she ends up in jail – again – for a crime she didn’t commit.
The Fallen Angels Book Club by author R. Franklin James is an enjoyable first book in the new series featuring Hollis Morgan. Hollis is a good heroine as she is smart, determined and resourceful. The supporting characters are more generic but work well with the story. The plot goes by at a nice pace and the mystery unfolds in a logical way for the most part. This book is not an edgy or shocking book but its enjoyable and pleasant to read.
