In case you missed the last post, I’ve joined the CFBA blog tours, but unfortunately didn’t get to read the current book, which Mrs. Frugal here will definitely have to look for at the library, along with Dandelion Dust. So here’s what a fellow founding member of the Lost Genre Guild, Dan Weaver, had to say about it.
The Election by Jerome Teel – Review
Who doesn’t love a good, fast-paced thriller? Oh, come on, you know you do. Well, Jerome Teel’s debut novel, The Election, shouldn’t disappoint. After hearing author John Grisham speak in one of his law classes at the University of Mississippi, Teel was motivated to write his own novel. His inspiration? A desire to tell a story about the impact that individuals with a worldview can have when they become involved in local, state, and national politics.
In the climax of our electoral season, Howard Books couldn’t have picked a better time to release Mr. Teel’s debut novel.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR :
