About this ebook

Multi-awardwinning, Bestselling Romantic Mystery Series

Saving Grace kicks the What Doesn't Kill You series off with voodoo, laughs, and suspense.

Katie Connell is a high-strung attorney whose sloppy drinking habits and stunted love life collide hilariously during a doomed celebrity case in Dallas. She flees Texas for the Caribbean and escapes professional humiliation, a broken heart, and a wicked Bloody Mary habit, but ends up trading one set of problems for another when she begins to investigate the suspicious deaths of her parents on the island of St. Marcos. She’s bewitched by the voodoo spirit of an abandoned house in the rainforest and discovers that she’s as much a danger to herself as the island’s bad guys are.

Honest and well paced, with a solid introduction to the series main character(s). I wouldn't call it a romance as she seems to be running from rather than accepting any love, but then again Katie is becoming established in a new life so I don't mind that she's not in the sack half the novel. A nice length for an opener by the way, almost 200 pages and it takes it's time getting through the various plot points. A solid 3.5 (I always round down) where four stars is among the better reads to me. M

A free Google Play book that I downloaded one night when I couldn't sleep. I must say that it's not a book that I would normally read but I loved it! A book with part drama, whodunit, comedy & a dash of the supernatural; it kept me riveted with great characters & storyline. Well written & proofread. My only complaint would be with the abruptness of the ending which didn't seem to be well thought out. Still, a great read & one I would thoroughly recommend.
