#Review #Giveaway of Latitude Zero by @dianarenn

“I have to run,” said Juan Carlos. “You will call? Please? It is very important.” 
“Yes. I will call. Definitely. At two.”

That’s what Tessa promises. But by two o’clock, young Ecuadorian cycling superstar Juan Carlos is dead, and Tessa, one of the last people ever to speak to him, is left with nothing but questions. The media deems Juan Carlos’s death a tragic accident at a charity bike ride, but Tessa, a teen television host and an aspiring investigative journalist, knows that something more is going on. While she grapples with her own grief and guilt, she is being stalked by spies with an insidious connection to the dead cycling champion. Tessa’s pursuit of an explanation for Juan Carlos’s untimely death leads her from the quiet New England backwoods to bustling bike shops and ultimately to Ecuador, Juan Carlos’s homeland. As the ride grows bumpy, Tessa no longer knows who is a suspect and who is an ally. The only thing she knows for sure is that she must uncover the truth of why Juan Carlos has died and race to find the real villain—before the trail goes cold.

Well this is my first book by author Diana Renn but I have to say that this will not be the last.  I might go stalk her later today!

This book is for the murder mystery reader. As this book is full of mystery, suspense, and ya murder. This is another book that will take you the ride of your life with a fast paced story about the murder of  teenage bike racer, Jaun Carlos.  With this book you will be whisked away with a great behind the scenes into the world of bike racing. Which I for one had never read about before.

That really gave this book something that others didn't have.  Something NEW!  Which made me want to read it all the more! This book will be a great read for both boys and girls. As I think it will appeal to almost anyone who picks it up. Teen and Adult alike.

The characters were great. Fully formed and wonderful.  And I can't wait to read the next book she throws at us.

This story have a few twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat as well!
