I just wanted to say thanks to Blackthorn Tours for sharing this awesome cozy mystery with me. I had a lot of fun reading it.
Here is the blurb:
While divorce lawyer Toby Wong spends her days helping couples split up, she’s still hoping for her own love story. The second novel in Elka Ray’s Vancouver Island mystery series finds Toby settling back into island life and looking forward to getting to know two attractive men better–charismatic Josh Barton, whom Toby first fell for as a teen, and the newly-met Detective Colin Destin.
Unfortunately, Toby’s romantic prospects take a hit when she’s sucked into a family drama. Toby’s mom, Ivy, is distraught when her best friend–wealthy socialite Daphne Dane–goes missing. Is Daphne’s new boyfriend behind her disappearance? And is he a conman, like his betrayed wife–who’s also Toby’s client–alleges?
Things get worse when Toby finds a battered body. As well as threatening her relationships with Josh and Colin, Toby’s involvement with the Danes puts her in danger.
Part cozy mystery and part family drama, the second novel in Elka Ray’s Vancouver Island mystery series will keep you up late with a twisty tale of love, money, and murder.
I found this to be a good book, and I did not want it to end. The characters are strong and written very well. I thought this was a very good book, and I could not stop reading once I had begun. It is just so engrossing. I was shocked when it was over because I didn’t realize I had read so much of the book, but that just means it is an amazing book.
The ending was a little anti climatic, and I did solve the mystery. I think this happens, but it made the book end on a lower note for me. Still, this is an engaging mystery you will be glued to until the end. It is fast paced and highly entertaining.
Overall. A strong mystery. 4 stars.
All thoughts and opinions are my own. Thanks to the author and blackthorn tours for the reading copy.
