Review of A Fatal Romance



Fixing up homes can be tricky.

Finding true love can be even trickier.

But finding a killer can be plain old deadly . . .

Twin sister divorcees Sunny Taylor and Eve Vaughn have had their fill of both heartaches and headaches. So when they settle down in the small Louisiana town of Sugar Ledge and open a remodeling and repair company, they think they’ve finally found some peace—even though Eve is still open for romance while Sunny considers her own heart out-of-business.

Then their newest customer ends up face-down in a pond, and his widow is found dead soon after. Unfortunately, Sunny was witnessed having an unpleasant moment with the distraught woman, and suspicion falls on the twins. And when an attempt is made on Eve’s life, they find themselves pulled into a murder mystery neither knows how to navigate.

With a town of prying eyes on them, and an unknown culprit out to stop them, Sunny and Eve will have to depend on each other like never before if they’re going to clip a killer in the bud.  (Goodreads)


The characters are fairly well developed and well rounded.  The two main characters, twins Sunny and Eve, are quirky and unpredictable.  At times I felt they were a little immature and some of their actions were not realistic.  But that is only my opinion and other readers may not feel this way at all.  I did enjoy reading about their interactions and conversations with each other.

The mystery is carried on well throughout the book.  There were many suspects to consider and enough clues to make it a hard murder to solve.  There was also humor mixed in to give it a more cozy feel.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a cozy mystery with unique characters, a dash of humor and a tough mystery to solve.  I will definitely read the next book in the series when it is released.

I received a free copy of NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.  I would like to thank NetGalley and Kensington Books for the opportunity to read and review this book.
