Today’s team book review is from Karen, she blogs at http://mytrainofthoughtson.wordpress.com
Karen chose to read and review The Scarlet Wench by M.K. Graff
This book reunites the readers with American writer Nora Tierney and her son Sean. The impending arrival of a theatre group about to stage “Blithe Spirit” promises a house full of paying guests for the staff at Ramsey Lodge. Strange things happen within the group, reawakening Nora’s inner sleuth – much to DI Declan Barnes’ sorrow. As a reader, I automatically tried to solve this strange case – and enjoyed it!
With The Scarlet Wench, M. K. Graff has created a thrilling suspense story with local flair. The story comprises a broad variety of believable and often pretty complex characters, nicely woven situations and interesting interactions to solve a set of crimes. I had a great time reading The Scarlet Wench – it is a very intriguing read. I was drawn into the story right away, thrilled to solve the mystery alongside Nora and Declan. This is for you if you like female sleuths, crime writers, suspense with twists and local flair and a little interwoven romance.
A suspenseful book and/or series to read again. I’m eagerly waiting for the opportunity to read the previous volumes of the series.
