A Word or Two from Deja to You~

A Word or Two from Deja to You~
Before Halloween has even gathered up its belongings, Christmas has already slid in. Hey, but I was able to grab Jack and Sally Christmas figurines for a pretty sweet deal, so I’m not complaining. Too much.

This week an audible suggestion, blog hopping and pictures.

Be inspired.

Love to you all,
Deja
  




Audiobook Fave for the Week!
One of the suggestions for a person who wants to read but simply lacks the time? Audiobooks! And, I have the perfect one for you!

My absolute favorite this week is:





Cut and Run by Abigail Roux and Madeleine Urban
Narrated by Sawyer Allerde

A series of murders in New York City has stymied the police and FBI alike, and they suspect the culprit is a single killer sending an indecipherable message. But when the two federal agents assigned to the investigation are taken out, the FBI takes a more personal interest in the case.

Special Agent Ty Grady is pulled out of undercover work after his case blows up in his face. He's cocky, abrasive, and indisputably the best at what he does. But when he's paired with Special Agent Zane Garrett, it's hate at first sight. Garrett is the perfect image of an agent: serious, sober, and focused, which makes their partnership a classic cliché: total opposites, good cop - bad cop, the odd couple. They both know immediately that their partnership will pose more of an obstacle than the lack of evidence left by the murderer.

Practically before their special assignment starts, the murderer strikes again - this time at them. Now on the run, trying to track down a man who has focused on killing his pursuers, Grady and Garrett will have to figure out how to work together before they become two more notches in the murderer's knife.


This is the beginning of a fantastic series. You’ll easily become addicted to the story line, the action and Ty and Zane. And, it won’t even require an intervention.
