What others are saying about Old Acquaintances:
Gorman has a firm grasp on murder mystery and tells a captivating story in Old Acquaintances. Her characters are believable and intriguing. She kept me guessing until it was obvious who 'done' it. I turned page after page without putting the book down. Excellent job and I'm looking forward to her next book! ~Darlene (5 star rating)
What would you do if suddenly, people you used to know were being murdered, you were being harassed by frightening phone calls, you began receiving strange gifts, and you felt you were being followed? All these things and more were happneing to Rissa Neil. All Rissa had in her life were the only two friends who stuck by her after she lost her mother two years ago and a small boutique. Things were not perfect for the kindhearted beauty, but her sad existence turned into a living nightmare when late one night after closing up shop, a dark figure stepped out of the bushes.
I would suggest that when you read 'Old Acquaintances' that you make sure you have a chair with a comfortable edge because this book will have you on the edge of your seat, a lot. It reads like a well-edited movie with every page alive with drama, mystery, and romance. The characters are interesting and believable. The story is captivating and hard to put down. My wife, who is blind, reads many books on tape. When I read Old Acquaintances to her, she agreed with me that Author-Ursula Gorman has crafted a murder mystery that is as good as any we have ever read, and we have read several of the classics. If you like suspenseful murder mysteries with a dash of romance then you must read 'Old Acquaintances.' ~Stephen Groll (5 star rating)

The Best of Us by Ursula Gorman is a real page turner! I was immediately swept into the story and could not wait to find out what happened next. I felt the hurt and disbelief along with the Daniel, Carly and the rest of the family as the events surrounding Jenna unfolded. The twists and turns along the way led me on an exciting journey and kept me guessing until the very end. It was very satisfying seeing old feelings rekindled and new feelings come to light. As I turned the last page, I was saying, no! I was not ready to put the book down. I can't wait to find out what adventure Harm and Carter embark upon. I highly recommend this book as a great read!
