10 Questions with Rosie Miles

We haven’t done one of these in a while, but I’m bringing it back, because it was one of my favorite features on H.L.B. Today we have Rosie Miles joining us and answering the 10 questions today is Maggie Sinclair from her book, Never Surrender, and you can read the review of the book here. So without further ado, here’s Maggie! Q: What is the one thing you never leave the house without and why. A: I never leave home without my “to do” list. I live such a busy life and it helps keep me on track. Q: What is the number one item on your birthday wish list? A: I love a good pamper. So, I’d say, a day at a health spa, you know, have a massage and a facial, and then for a special treatment, a pedicure. Absolute bliss. Q: What’s your biggest pet peeve? A: When someone leaves a dribble of milk in the bottle rather than finish it then throw the empty into the rubbish. Q: What’s your favorite book? A: Old Man’s War by John Scalzi. It’s the first book of a series. I love a series. Q: What’s your go to song to get you amped up? A: Superwoman, by Alicia Keys. The first time I heard that song, I cried.

I think what set this book apart for me is that our heroine in this book is undercover, and her ex is also a cop, and when she gets in trouble, he is who she calls, which I thought is such a good set up for a good book. So our heroine is Maggie, and she is undercover trying to bring down this, well basically, kingpin in the sex-slave business. When our book starts Maggie is extraordinarily paranoid, I mean like super paranoid, she is convinced she is being watched all the time. At first I thought her paranoia was over the top and I might have even been a little annoyed by it, but honestly when the book continued I thought maybe she could have used a bit more paranoia. I liked her as a character, I liked that she was trying to do the right thing. I liked that even though she was being set up to take the fall in this case, that she was first and foremost concerned with the welfare of the girls she was trying to save then she was for herself. I also liked that she wasn’t like some 100% awesome super […]
