Mini Reviews: Bee Books

More mini reviews today of some of my recent quarantine reads. “Bee” books because the titles start with B and they both happen to have ‘black’ in the title! One of these comes from my TBR list that you all helped me pick at the beginning of the year and the other is from my new TBR list of all the books on my shelves that I have yet to read.

Unfortunately not the book for me but very grateful to the author for sending me a copy to review! (And sorry that it took me so long to post!)

The Desert Run by Gregg Dunnett
Genre: Thriller

What does it take for an ordinary guy to do something extraordinary?

Meet Jake. He’s looking to use his new degree in Economics and Business Studies. But he can’t get a job and a mountain of student debt is threatening to overwhelm him.

And when the ordinary life he has planned doesn’t much impress the girl of his dreams, he starts to consider his best friend’s idea to get rich quick. After all, it’s only a little bit illegal, and they’re smart enough to not get caught. . .
The Desert Run is an intriguing and suspenseful thriller charting how one young man succumbs to the siren call of adventure.

One little crime doesn’t make you a criminal. Does it?
