Patricia and I would like to say a very big THANK YOU to the wonderful #Bloggers on the #BlogTour for Class of 2008. Your help is very much appreciated xx
I loved the wide range of characters in this book. I especially loved the closeness between Rosario and her companion Balou, who is actually a C.A.T. (I can’t say the word out loud because my youngest dog would go ballistic which is why I have spelt it out. Read more here
I love how this story was written. Alternating chapters are heard in Rosario’s voice .. and then Balou’s take on the things that are happening. I liked Rosario, she’s down to earth and loyal to her friends. Read more here
The author’s characters are very believable (haven’t we all known people who never grow out of being a bully?) and the story rolls along, making the reader want to find out what happens next. For me, that is a sign of a good book and I would recommend this to all readers who enjoy a mystery. Read more here
I loved the way that the chapters alternated between Rosario and Balou the cat, looking at the same set of events but from different perspectives was very clever, even if you were sitting and nodding with a cat!
The story had my attention all the way through and I loved reading about everyone’s back story and how they became the people they were today, I didn’t guess who was the culprit, so that’s always a good sign. because it means you will have to read it to the very end to get the answers you seek.
The book starts off with a list of characters and description of who they are, which really helped as I haven’t read book 1 and didn’t have any back story/
The book can be read on it’s own as you can pick it up quite quickly. Read more here
Class of 2008 (A Rosario and Balou Mystery) by Patricia Asedegbega
Amazon link AMAZON
After surviving the near-death experience at the hands of her husband, “cold eyes,” Rosario and her feline friend Balou are trying to get some semblance of normality back into their lives A new home, new surroundings, old friends, and plenty of rest is just what the doctor ordered, had he been consulted. Balou’s law of minimum effort means days spent licking his paws in the sun, but Balou’s practice is soon shaken to its very foundation. When a dear friend’s innocent class reunion goes horribly wrong, their peace is shattered. In a race against time, the amateur sleuths navigate the muddy waters of old secrets and friendships to try to save the day, but the clock is ticking and it might very well be too late…
This gripping new tale of suspense is the second in the Rosario and Balou series, from the author of I Stand Corrected.
I live in sunny Spain and have been writing for about six years now. I started with a collection of cat stories to raise funds for a shelter and then moved on to my first suspense novel. I write both in Spanish and English and have series in both languages. Though I am a biologist, writing is my true passion. I feel incredibly lucky to be able to do what I love.
