My Review

The second installment of Lauren Carr's Thorny Rose Mystery Series, A Fine Year for Murder surprises you with the thrill of a mystery that involves the back story of one of the central characters introduced in Kill and Run, the first book in the series, Jessica. Jessica's nightmares and a new twist to an old murder case have her, along with her husband Murphy, going to the scene of the crime, a place where she had spent many a holiday during her childhood days.

Once again, the author manages to weave the relationships and emotions with the thrill of solving cases. A Fine Year for Murder introduces many new characters and puts Jessica and Murphy's relationship to test as they struggle to bring together the clues from the present signs of danger as Jessica remembers threads of a memory she had suppressed as a child.

Another maze of whodunit by Lauren Carr that's interesting to read through.

Book Description:

After ten months of marital bliss, Jessica Faraday and Murphy Thornton are still discovering and adjusting to their life together. Settled in their new home, everything appears to be perfect … except in the middle of the night when, in the darkest shadows of her subconscious, a deep secret from Jessica’s past creeps to the surface to make her strike out at Murphy.

When investigative journalist Dallas Walker tells the couple about her latest case, known as the Pine Bridge Massacre, they realize Jessica may have witnessed the murder of a family while visiting family at the winery near-by, and suppressed the memory.

Determined to uncover the truth and find justice for the murder victims, Jessica and Murphy return to the scene of the crime with Dallas Walker, a spunky bull-headed Texan. Can this family reunion bring closure for a community touched by tragedy or will this prickly get-together bring an end to the Thorny Rose couple?

"Wow - this is one INCREDIBLE novel that I could not put down. It had me  on the edge of my seat and I can honestly say that I never saw the end coming. It was full of suspense, action but also humour (done in a way  that only Lauren can accomplish)." - 5-Star Review of THE NUTCRACKER CONSPIRACY by Working Mommy Journal
