This story was definitely different from most of what I usually read, and it took me just a little while to really get into it. As I continued reading, though, the story drew me in and definitely intrigued me. I wasn't sure where she was going with the story being told from two totally different perspectives, but the progression which gradually brought the two together, along with the element of suspense throughout, certainly kept me turning the pages. The wide variety of characters added much to the interest level of the story.
Thanks to Heather for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
About the Book:
Child of the Appalachian mountains, Tess Spencer has experienced more than her share of heartache. The Glock-wielding, knife-carrying housewife knows how to survive whatever life throws at her.
But when an anonymous warning note shows up in her best friend Miranda’s mailbox—a note written in a dead woman’s handwriting—Tess quickly discovers that ghosts are alive and well in Buckneck, West Virginia. Hot on a cold trail, she must use limited clues and her keen insight into human nature to unmask the killer…or the next victim might be Tess herself.
Tinged with the supernatural and overshadowed by the mountains’ lush, protective presence, this twisting psychological mystery is the first in A Murder in the Mountains series.
This novel is written from a Christian worldview.
