I admit I have enjoyed lauren's murder mysteries. They are complicated,lots of murder suspects that keep you guessing on who did what murders and why. I usually am able to figure out part but not all the answers. The characters are a mixed bag. Some you love,some you love to hate and hope they are the guilty party.
This is the second Joshua Thornton mystery book. I do like the newer one better but this one kept me reading to find out all the answers.
Joshua is the new proscuter for the county. He is a widower with 5 kids and one dog. He has moved his family back to his hometown. His cousin Tad is a dr. and medical examiner. They are good friends and work close together on some cases.
Joshua has a lot of ladies chasing him some from high school, some are even lawyers.
He does not understand it.
A cheerleader is shot to death after practice. His son chases down the killer but he doesn't catch him.
A new detective is hired and put in charge of the other detectives. Joshua is not impressed with him at all. He even checks him out. Sean jumps to conclusions without asking all the questions than trys to make his case fit.
He tries to arrest Joshua for murder of an old friend who he slept with once back in high school. Gail has been stocking him and he did not even know it.
Joshua opens a old case that had another high school cheerleader he was friends back in the day with. It was ruled a sucide even when the evidence proves it was not. Beside the fact thier was no gun left at the scene.
The story takes twists and turns all over the place till everything is revealed. I like Joshua and hope to read more books with him as the main character in the future.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review by Lauren.
