Lillian's back, again with contrary attitude - still battling an ornery convalescent mother, trying to avoid Detective Leveque of Major Crimes, she's elevated her status to liquor store owner. An alchie owning a liquor store? That's only the beginning of Lillian putting herself in situations that trigger her stubbornness.
In book two, Suppose, the past haunts her again. This time it's her girlfriend's ex-boyfriend fingering her for her girlfriend's death. She'd have told him to take a jump off the idiot-cliff, only claiming proof. Lillian finds out blackmail isn't the only thing he's up to. Feds and a CEO connected with the Chicago Family are after him, and in turn, are on the hunt for Lillian.
Having no experience with crime, other than a former part-time job for the Frytown Police Department, Lillian learns fast who to believe and not believe, who to trust and who to run from, as if her life depended on it. It does!
Highly tenacious and high on resilience, despite the added manipulations from her mother, Lillian faces the CEO gangster who thinks the world was meant just for him.
Suppose is irresistible fun and powerful suspense from D. J. Adamson, author of the highly acclaimed Admit to Mayhem.

A Babe in Mafialand
If you could sum up Suppose in three words, what would they be?
What other book might you compare Suppose to and why?
Have you listened to any of Reagan Boggs’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This is the first time.Although she is a capable narrator and kept the story moving.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
My headline A Babe in Mafialand.

Enjoyable fast paced mystery
A fast paced thriller mystery, with a sympathetic main character and some quirky minor characters. Reagan Boggs voice perfectly fit the central character. An enjoyable 6 hour audio.
This was a free audio and a voluntary review, but worth a credit!

No path as narrow, no road taken straight.
In this novel, beautifully written in the first person throughout, the reader experiences the often lonely and confusing and sometimes downright terrifying, period of days in the life of Lilian Dove, now resident of Freitown, where she has inherited and runs a small discount liquor store.
For her this in itself is a major achievement. Until five years ago she was an alcoholic, like her father before her. Her mother, still living, has always been spitefully hateful towards her and just seems to keep getting worse. Her best, possible only, real friend had died, deemed a suicide (though Lilian has suspicions that the live in boy friend killed her) many months before. But at last it was beginning to get right, she had a life. Until the blackmail call threatening to show evidence that she had murdered her best friend: video from a nanny-cam on a flash drive. She knows the caller, goes to tell him what she thinks of him - and her newly won life starts to explode.
The characterisation of Lilian is very well done, helped also by the narration of Reagan Boggs, who takes on the persona of the young woman, still fighting past demons and struggling with the present chaos entering her life. She's confused, afraid and lonely but also feisty and won't give in. A likable and very real person. Ms.Boggs conveys all of this admirably, without hystrionics, reading clear and sustained with good intonation. She also interprets the other character voices distinctly. A nice performance which very much adds to the overall enjoyment of the book.
This is a well constructed book, filling in background information about the main protagonist through Lilian's remembrances at appropriate points of the story. The tale is one to keep the reader guessing: what is going on? Why is she being targeted? And with some nice little twists along the way. It always feels exciting, frightening and plausible.
My thanks to the rights holder who freely gifted me a complimentary copy of Suppose, at my request, via Audiobook Boom. This was my first encounter with Lilian Dove and her author, J.D.Adamson and I certainly hope that it will not be my last.
