Book Review - FATEFUL FALL by Erin Unger
Erin Unger says in her Amazon biography that she loves to read and write mysteries such as Mary Higgins Clark did--and I think she's made a good start in this story of murder, intrigue, and, yes, even a bit of romance.
Ava Worthington looks much too young to be a private detective, and just doesn't fit the mold of tough investigator. Her two companions, Shauna (former military) and Jillian (shy to the point of reclusive), are a little distant from that picture too. However, they've been hired by the owner of a backwoods resort to help the local sheriff (who doesn't exactly like their butt-inski ways) solve the murder of the owner's son.
The inquiry is hampered by the arrival of paying guests who shouldn't be disturbed or aware of the goings-on, the reluctance of anyone to divulge information about their local friends, and the "accidental" death of an employee. How's a fledgling investigator supposed to prove herself when no one is cooperating?
Thank goodness for that handsome (although Ava really shouldn't be thinking along those lines) guy assigned to guide them around, Cory Mortel.
Available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble. If you're a mystery fan, I do believe you'll enjoy this one.
I received an advance copy of this book free from the publisher in return for an honest review.
