Wrighty's Reads

I've always loved to read and enjoy a wide variety of genres. My favorites tend to be humor, mysteries, thrillers, chick lit, fantasy, paranormal, dystopian, young adult, children's books and most combinations of those previously mentioned.

Original Sin

Original Sin - Beth McMullen When I read the description it seemed to have all the elements I enjoy in a book - interesting story, lots of action, good writing and a large dose of humor. Jackpot! And it's done well here, especially for a debut novel. Lucy Hamilton was Sally Sin in her former life. As if being a spy wasn't hard enough, but she gave it all up to start a family. (I've never been a spy but I would still bet my money that the mom thing is much harder. You definitely get less sleep!) but Lucy has done both, although she never wanted to combine them into one lifetime. Unfortunately that decision was made for her.I was drawn in from the first page. Lucy is crawling around in her backyard looking for evidence of an intruder - paranoid mom? Old habits of a spy? She was making fun of herself as she was doing it so that endeared me to her right away. I thought all of the characters were quite interesting and a good combination of Lucy's past and present. The story unfolded nicely with plenty of action. I eagerly anticipated every little nugget of her life as a spy and how it all led to her now being a wife and mother. There were a few bumps in the road for me that didn't seem logical but the humor helped me to occasionally suspend disbelief. There was plenty of mystery at the end of this book but it sets up for the next one in the series. I will be waiting for it!Book 2, See Sally Spy, coming May 29, 2012!Thank you to Hyperion for sending me an arc to review.
