Review: My GRL by John W. Howell

February 18, 2017

My GRL by John W. Howell


About the book

John J. Cannon successful San Francisco lawyer takes a leave of absence from the firm and buys a boat he names My GRL. He is unaware that his newly-purchased boat had already been targeted by a terrorist group. John’s first inkling of a problem is when he wakes up in the hospital where he learns he was found unconscious next to the dead body of the attractive young woman who sold him the boat in the first place. John now stands between the terrorists and the success of their mission.

My Review

John Cannon takes a break from his job and moves to a little coastal town where the biggest decision he needs to make is whether to buy a boat or not.

Sounds Idyllic.

Little does he know it will be a decision that will change his life. The boat will soon become the least of his problems.

John W. Howell has written a terrific book in My GRL. Full of action and suspense, there is a definite James Bond feel – if James Bond was a lawyer rather than a trained secret agent. Poor John Cannon. His bravery comes from a need to do what’s right. It’s an honorable intention. All he wants is a relaxing time out from the intensity of his high powered legal job, and instead he finds himself in the middle of a terrorist plot.

My GRL is a great read if you want to escape into a good book.

John (the author) has created well-rounded characters and a believable real-feel setting. You can’t help but feel for poor Cannon – caught in a net with the ends growing ever tighter and no matter what move he makes, it looks like it can only get worse.

I really enjoyed My GRL and am looking forward to the next in the series!
