I completely enjoyed this book, it's my first with this writer but she gives enough background information so I didn't feel lost at all. I love that Beanie, main character, and his wife Noelle have a strong loving relationship, you don't often see that. Beanie is an investigative reporter for the local small town paper who discovers a man stabbed in his own backyard. Join him as he tries to unravel this mystery and the others that follow!

Several twists and turns in the story that have to be discovered to find out the truth. Keeps you guessing till the end. Interesting character to follow as he gathers and reviews the evidence and clues to find out what happened. Good read. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I have read many books written by this author because she is the TRUTH!! I love a good mystery. My favorite show is Columbo (I’m aging myself) and for some reason, this author reminds me of him.
