For No Apparent Reason Book By S K Derban

A focused law student, romance has been absent from Madison’s life. She has successfully planned each phase of her life and resigned to the fact that there will be plenty of time for love after she passes the bar exam—that is until the single act of seeking shelter from a spring downpour dramatically alters the course of her life. Madison is lured away from the security of law school into a world where she learns about the destructive nature of greed. Thrust in a maze of money laundering and murder, Madison experiences the value of true friendship and witnesses the healing power of love.

Ms. S. K. Derban captivated me again with her second book For No Apparent Reason. I really enjoyed reading this book. It is not only captivating, emotional and very funny as well.

Madison Rae will crack you up not only with her wittiness but how she forgets things too like her gadget. It is also a beautiful book about the love and support of a family.

This book is hard to put it down once you started reading it. It is very suspense. It will blow your mind. A book that handles any FBI involvement is my cup of tea to read. Madison and Court’s relationship is like cat and a mouse. They both like to play games though the attraction is undeniable. I loved these two characters.

For No Apparent Reason teaches you to trust you instinct and do everything to help your neighbors. Madison Rae has that character being a student that studies crimes and law. She is one stubborn woman who will never says no while she can help. If you love to read crimes, this book is a must read. I highly recommended it. Prepare to be amazed and fall in-love with Madison Rae and Court.

It is a heart thumping read

My very first time to read the author’s writing. I LOVED this book Uneven Exchange by Ms. S. K. Derban. It is a heart thumping book to read.

I LOVED reading suspense or mystery. This book never fails me. I cannot put it down. It is so suspense. My heart never stop to beat faster. The scenes seem like so real to read. Druglord and undercover is the main exciting scenes. It makes you breathless.

My first time to read a book like this that the main character has perfect resemblance to a certain person. I can imagine the Mexicans and undercover that I can watch in the news while reading this book. It is so good. The book is funny too. It has also romance. I highly recommended it. I am looking forward to read the author’s next book. 

Disclosure:

I received the paperback copy of the book in exchange of my honest review.

1. How did you do research for your book?

After developing my plot, I met separately with a DEA agent, and police detective. They both provided valuable assistance, and were gracious enough to take my calls when I had follow-up

questions.

2. What made you write a book about a woman working undercover?

My mind is always filled with adventure stories, and working undercover is one of the best. When I write, it is like being able to live in any fantasy I desire.

3. What advice would you give budding writers?

Stop what you are doing right now and go write at least one page! When you finish one book, write another. Do not stop writing even while you are trying to get published. Good writing will find a way!

4. Do you have another profession besides writing?

As a real estate Broker, for a number of years I owned and operated a real estate company. Then, after selling the office, I was recruited to work as the Executive Director for a real estate, tax, law firm. I remain with that firm in the capacity of a consultant, in order to allow more time for writing.

5. What is your next project?

Presently I am working on another mystery romance with the working title of Circumvent. I am hoping for a publication date of Christmas 2016.

6. Do you snack while writing? Favorite snack?

Although I am not a big on snacking, I also get grumpy when I am hungry. To make it worse, I am also lazy, and will grab the easiest thing to open! Instead of being tempted to reach for the chips (one simple chip clip away) I have a container of raw walnuts and almonds at eye level in the refrigerator.

7. If you could go back in time, where would you go?

To Highclere Castle of course! I know this is fiction, but one can dream! Oh how I would love to be a member of the Crawley family in Downton Abbey.
