New review of Deadly Pleasures from an author!

Mary Firmin’s titillating debut thriller Deadly Pleasures keeps the reader engrossed from start to finish. The author must have asked herself, “Why should men have all the fun? Why shouldn’t women enjoy the services of a boy toy?” The answer is a resounding yes!

Firmin’s deftly plotted mystery tosses real-estate agent Megan Riley into a world populated with a serial killer, bondage clubs, a skunk of a former boyfriend, a handsome hunk detective, while keeping up with her three rich female friends at a local yacht club. After these intrepid females hire a gorgeous boy toy, dead bodies appear with frightening regularity. Twists and turns sneak up on the reader. All signs point to involvement in sexual bondage. What do the women really know about the boy toy? What’s Megan’s role in helping the detective?

Deadly Pleasures doesn’t rely on gimmicks. Firmin writes with authority. Fully developed characters keep the story moving. While the setting is a yacht club for the wealthy, readers can relate to their universal problems. This reviewer hopes Mary Firmin gives us a follow-up book soon.
Reviewed by Doris Parmett, National Best-selling author of Lies, Risk, and 11 other novels.

This week with Mary
This has been a hectic week for me.  My sister is visiting from England and we have had a great time.  Barnes and Noble is featuring Deadly Pleasures on its Rising Star page for the month of February, so if anyone would like to buy a book for themselves or as a gift, now is the time to do it.  iUniverse is also featuring the book on its Rising Star Page. I have had some interest in the book from a couple of agents.  Time alone will tell.  I attended the Palm Springs Writers Guild last week and they featured a panel of agents. The discussion was enlightening and I took away a lot of good information.  Thank you for the wonderful reviews you have all given me on It all really helps.  Have a wonderful week.  All the best, Mary.
