Blog Tour: Murder in Devon by Maggi Andersen (Review and Book Giveaway!)

Mystery, Romantic Suspense

Black Opal Books

Release Date:
February 2012

EBook (also available in paperback)

Casey Rowan, an ex-patriot American living in England, discovers one of her best friends has been murdered, another is lying near death. Her world is totally shattered and she is determined to find out who is behind these horrible events. This does not sit well with the lead detective on the case, Rod Carlisle. Not to mention that Casey is on his list of suspects. In fact, she’s right at the top of the list.

Much to Rod’s dismay, Casey continues to interfere in the murder investigation as well as put herself in harm’s way at every turn. He finds himself quite attracted to the beautiful American despite knowing that nothing good can come of getting involved with a murder suspect. To make matters worse, Casey is obviously getting someone angry with all questions making her the next target. Rod has his hands full finding a killer and keeping Casey safe.

This is a fast-paced mystery that reminds me quite a bit of an Agatha Christie mystery. The suspects are presented in a clear, concise manner giving readers a chance to figure out whodunit themselves. Casey is a very strong-willed heroine who I liked from the beginning. It took me a little longer to warm up to Rod, but I did like him.

This book has it all – a good mystery, great characters, a beautiful setting and a nice romance all mixed into one enjoyable read.
