What are you waiting for?

My pick for this week is . . .

a little different for me, but I like to shake things up. I read the first chapter and was hooked!

Description (from the author's website):
In the mid-21st century, the human race stopped aging. Those who know why aren’t talking, and the few who are brave enough to ask questions tend to disappear. To an elite few, The Change means long life and health, but to the increasing masses, it means starvation, desperation, and violence.

Four centuries after The Change, Grace Harper, a blacklisted P.I., sets off on a mission to find Jordan Lacklin, the man who might be responsible for it all. She and her employer, Matthew Stanton, want to enlist his help to restore the natural aging process, but there’s no guarantee Jordan is alive after all this time. To make matters worse, Matthew Stanton is suspected of murdering his father, and when the police find out she’s working for him they give her a choice – help them find the evidence they need to convict Matthew and have her named cleared, or die. But if they find out what Matthew has hired her to do, they’ll probably kill her anyway.

Grace has to duck warring factions in her search for the truth, ending up imprisoned as a slave on a farm while powerful enemies clash all around her. There she finds a new ally, Jordan’s grandson, Alex, and a shot at finding love again. At least, if the two of them survive.

You are right, there is something very interesting about this one! I am going to have to try to see if I can read it. It's very different than my normal fare, but it sounds excellent! Thanks for sharing!

Sounds interesting!
If they stop aging, does that mean babies don't age either, or they get to a certain age and basically stay that way?

I am relatively new to your blog and can I already say I♥U!!!!I♥UI♥UI♥UI♥UI♥UI♥UI♥UI♥UI♥U!!!!

I just finished Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series book 1 thru 7, and have been feeling very depressed. I have been SO involved with that world for so long and now felt very lost and didn't know what to read. Well, I found oooooodles of ideas here. My barnes and noble wish list is now 45 high! Thank you very much.
