“Daley’s characters come to life on the page. Her novels are filled with a little mystery and a little romance which makes for a murderous adventure.” – Tonya Kappes, USA Today Bestselling Author of Southern Fried

While on vacation in South Carolina, Tj Jensen receives a call that her father has been left in a coma after a devastating car crash. Back home in Paradise Lake, Tj learns the accident that killed family friend Judge Harper and left her father clinging to life wasn’t an accident at all—someone cut their brake lines. To make matters worse, her friend and police contact, Deputy Roy Fisher, is working with a new partner who has no intention of letting Tj anywhere near the case. Facing an investigation more explosive than the annual fireworks show, Tj enlists the help of her best friends to unravel the mystery, all the while navigating a new romance and the thought her father may never wake up.

Review:

The characters are well rounded and well developed.  In this installment Tj finds herself right in the middle of a family emergency and it will take all of her faith and family love to get through it.  She will have to rely on her family and friends to solve this mystery and bring her family back together again.  I love the tight knit group that she surrounds herself with, they are all caring and loyal. In all of her books, family and friends are very important and this book is no exception.

The mystery was carried on well throughout the entire book.  There were plenty of clues to sift through and suspects to consider.  And as usual, there is more than one mystery to solve and they both are woven together like a beautifully made sweater.

The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  The author is very talented in creating a cozy small town setting and I would love to visit the places that she creates.  

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  This book is a great addition to an already fantastic series.

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.  I would like to thank NetGalley and Henery Press for the opportunity to read and review this book (and for granting wishes).
