Don T Often Give A Book 5 Stars But This t often give a book 5 stars but this was worthy of it Crisp dialog a likable main give a book 5 stars but this whoodunit was worthy of it Crisp dialog a likable main and just enough or few clues to keep the eader guessing makes the story a must ead for mystery fans I enjoyed this story of a young journalist who leaves her home town to get away from a elationship that s going nowhere and does her best to move on with her life When she finds a dead body in the trunk of her car she becomes embroiled in the first of several mysteries and the lives of a number of folks in her new townI liked the heroine who earned the description of feisty but wasn t obnoxious I enjoyed her family especially her younger brother The people she worked with and the new friends she made were ealistic and interesting I thought the Christian aspects were handled well without over simplifying faith or our elationship with God And the mystery did keep me guessing all the way through So all in all it was a solid book Though listed as a omance there eally wasn t any omance in this one it was pretty straight suspensemystery if that matters to you I ll probably ead by this authorI have one minor uibble though When will authors learn that car trunks have glow in the dark handles to open them from the inside so kids can t get locked in and die So if you e going to lock your conscious victim in the trunk you have to have it broken or emoved somehow you can t just ignore the fact that that handle will be there It s like cell phones people have them and you can t just ignore the.

Great majority of the danger she was in came from her doing stupid things like antagonizing someone who just admitted to killing someone in a fit of anger And Merry often knew that what she was doing wasn t wise and went against common sense but she did it anywayThe mystery also wasn t very difficult to figure out Merry had to actually be told the answer and then the author tried to get cute and kept having the characters efer to the guy hunting her as him ather than by name as though it was some big secret that she wasn t going to let the eader in on I found that annoyingI also let the eader in on I found that annoyingI also t like the hero Merry had just freed herself from a verbally abusive jerk boyfriend only to pick up a nice wonderful Christian guy who did things he knew annoyed her always ordered her around like she had no brain and always ordered her around like she had no brain and had a brain just no common sense didn t listen to her and was otherwise just as bad as her last boyfriend I did like that she didn t follow his orders but the problem was that sometimes they were sensible ones and he never learned that ordering her around would backfireFinally there were some problems with the suspense scenes For example Merry was wearing a thick scarf wound 15 times over her neck but was uickly almost strangled to death It s hard enough to strangle someone without thick padding in the wayAll that said if you e into cheerfully get herself into trouble heroines with spunk you ll probably enjoy this novel It s otherwise well written it just happened to hit all my pet peevesMerry and several other characters were Christians and it was portrayed as a part of their lifestyle Merry prayed for help mused about how she ought to be trusting God instead of worrying and so on The end got a little preachy though D the holly bushes when a dead body turnedup in her carThe trouble didn't end there gunshots attacks and a handsome newfriend who might not be what ,
