˃˃˃ The Ava series reviews are in, and they're good. Very, very good.
"Just when I think I couldn't love another Pamela Fagan Hutchins novel more, along comes Ava. She's smart and sassy, with a story full of juicy plot twists. I enjoyed Bombshell from cover to cover!" — Marcy McKay, author of Pennies from Burger Heaven
"To finally get a whole book of Ava's beautiful voice and attitude was so much fun. And then to see that her outer armor was mixed with the very real insecurities and struggles that we can all relate to was magical. She personifies bombshell in every sense of word and I can't wait to have her voice in my head again in Stunner." — Tara Scheyer, Grammy-nominated musician, Long-Distance Sisters Book Club
"Entertaining, complex, and thought-provoking. Each book gets better and better and better (with a) more intricate and complex storyline. [The What Doesn’t Kill You world] started out great, but [Pamela] outdid herself on this one. I am anxiously anticipating the next book about Ava. It was so hard to put this book down once I started reading." — Ginger Copeland, power reader

This is book #8 for me from Pamela Fagan Hutchins. I have read about Katie, Emily, Michelle and now Ava.
I had a little trouble getting "chummy" with Ava at first because she seemed like such a different character. However, she proved to be a truly interesting, complex person. I know I will be reading "Stunner" soon, as well as catching up on the books I have missed about the other ladies in this series.
Quit reading halfway through. Tired of waiting for more spirit connection. Don't like lead’s morals and tired of waiting for mystery to develop. Also turned off by political inferences.
I thought I got a romance novel. I got that and so much more; with suspense, fear, and trauma. Absolutely loved reading this book written from a black woman's perspective. Loved the dialect depicted. Had my head pounding trying to figure out the ending.
