My Review

This is a new-to-me author and a very nice introduction into her work. It’s a short whodunit. The author takes the reader through the investigation in a very small time span and she’s able to keep readers hooked to the end. It’s not a complex mystery, but it’s an interesting one to keep you guessing when you are looking for a quick read. It’s a good mystery with a touch of romance thrown in.

I’m looking forward to reading by this author.
