Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Buying Time by Pamela Samuels Young
Angela Evans is an assistant U. S. Attorney who loses an associate to suspected murder while on assignment. She sets out on a quest to find his killer and on that quest finds love, separation, danger and redemption.
Pamela Samuels Young is flat out brilliant. This is an excellent story and as a debut novel, it is outstanding. The characters are clearly portrayed and practically anyone will find a character they know. Waverly Sloan is well portrayed as a basically good person who gets in way over his head. The viatical industry is explained clearly. The reverse mortgage concept applied to life insurance is so new that many readers may be surprised at how wide spread it is. The mystery remained mysterious and the multiple story lines were tied together adroitly. I look forward to future books by Young.
