The Bloody Mary Club by Debbie Dyke Spotlight for Pump Up Your Book Book Tour


BMC_Front_Small (3)

Stock market meltdown. United States housing bubble. Global financial crisis. Chief executives cooking the books. Who can you trust for financial advice? Gina Van Story, a savvy 40ish investment advisor to the rescue. She can spot a trend on the market and jump on it like a cat. She dreams of grabbing the bull by the horns and is on the hunt for one final big score. Gina and her three best friends form the Bloody Mary Investment Club and come face-to-face with corruption in a David and Goliath struggle when their stock portfolio turns deadly…literally.
Over made-to-order Bloody Mary cocktails at historic Gadsby’s Tavern, Gina takes her friends under her wing and teaches them the ins and outs of the stock market. Trouble begins when, following Gina’s bullish advice, they become majority owners in the local bank and then stubbornly turn down a lucrative buyout offer. Not only will money and greed challenge their friendship, they will have to get smart fast and figure out how to turn the tables on the charmingly seductive, yet evil,  banker who wants control of their stock by any means necessary – including murder!

Debbie's BLOG
She's always been a writer. While in High School in Naples, Italy she worked for the Panorama Navy Newspaper as a photo journalist covering all local events for the military community. She was set to pursue a career as a Photo-Journalist but fell in love with politics while attending University of Maryland in Munich Germany. She completed her undergraduate degree at Georgetown University, School of Foreign Service and then received a Masters Degree in National Security.
Debbie's writing credentials are varied, from writing technical training films, five screen plays, treatments, articles for magazines and several novels. Two of her screenplays have been optioned (HBO and A list actress) and she collaborated with award winning director Uli Edel (Baader Meinhof Complex, Tyson, Purgatory, Little Vampire) on an action thriller. She was part owner of Script Magazine and had the opportunity to attend film festivals and screenwriting conferences as an event correspondent. She authored the Louis Rukyser Wall Street Investment 365-day calendar and an episode for John Walsh's America's Most Wanted (Raymond Young, still a fugitive).
My Thoughts:
The Bloody Mary Club is a fun read about a stockbroker who becomes involved in a attempted bank takeover by a greedy, unscrupulous but exceedingly handsome man. The story is character driven and written with humor and knowledge about the brokering of stocks. The author is well versed in the ins and outs of the stock market. Add to this some zany ladies and an irresistible fiancee and you have yourself a very fun read. I enjoyed it very much and I look forward to Gina's Tonic, the next book featuring Gina Van Story.I highly recommend it.
I received this book for review and was not monetarily compensated for my review.
