Great Book @ $7.34 What A Bargain

An intricate maze that starts with a single person accused of a heinous crime at the beginning of this mystery but soon branches off into a labyrinth of directions that wind down to the center of the truth leaving a wake of collateral damage.

Nine years ago Jeb Cullen was convicted of crime he didn't commit. A multitude of people testified against him including his best friend who was also the only woman he has ever loved.

When Jed gets released early based on some discrepancies brought to light he vows to return to Snowy Creek and prove his innocence even knowing he is going to get strong opposition from everyone in the small town most of all from all of those that testified against him.

Rachel Salonen thought she and Jed would be together forever until he was arrested for the murder of one girl and the brutal rape of another. Rachel's testimony about what happened that night and about something dark from his past helped put in him jail. Since then she has moved on and is engaged but when her sister and her husband are killed she is suddenly made guardian of there 9 year adopted daughter and her life takes a different turn.

The author gives us some clues right away as to who some characters are and how they came to be and for the rest little by little she unravels a intricate web with a large cast of characters and many POV's until all points intersect at the end with insidious effects.

The intricate plot kept me turning the pages and wanting to see how all of these lives that were affected by one night nine years ago were going to collide and what the outcome would be.

Tanya Eby , Alexander Cendese were good with the delivery of the story. However, I thought Alexander Cendese was muchh better than Tanya Eby and would have preferred the story to be narrated by him alone.

- Lia "I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!"

Good suspense mystery!

I suspect this novel is classified as romance suspense, but is is more suspense than romance. It is an excellent story well told. Narration is definitely 5 star.
