My name is Barry Greenberg and all I want to do is get married. Okay, I’ve failed at it before, but I’m sure Molly and I can make it as a couple.
Except somebody keeps pulling us apart.
There must be somewhere people in a book can register a complaint against authors who keep messing up the lives of the people in their books. It started in Hooked on Murder, continued in Dead Men Don't Crochet, more in By Hook or By Crook, and even more in A Stitch in Crime. I can't speak for You Better Knot Die since it doesn't come out until November.
If my author would stop interfering, Molly would see the light. But the author keeps filling Molly’s head with the idea that after being married for so long before her husband died, she likes having her freedom now. All this junk about trying her wings and flying solo. I want to marry her, not put her in a cage.
And I’d like to kick Mason Fields right off the page and out of the book. I’m a serious minded homicide detective. Mason is a lawyer - need I say more? I keep telling Molly to stay out of the murder solving business and he keeps helping her get in deeper. They have way too much fun.
She says they’re just friends. If you could see me, you’d know by my expression how much I don’t buy that. Everybody, or at least every guys knows that “just friends” stuff is a bunch of bull. Guys have other guys as friends. Guys hanging out with women have an agenda.
I could also do without all those embarrassing situations my author puts me in just for a laugh.
But I’m not giving up. I have a few things up my sleeve. My author might just be surprised to find out the people in her book have ways of pulling their own strings.
How about the rest of you people in books. Do you want to rebel against your author?
