Book Review

Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth

RT Rating

This mystery is light and entertaining, but the characters fail to come to life. The writing is sometimes awkward, and stilted dialogue takes the reader out of the plot for a moment. Despite these weaknesses, this is an easy read on a lazy afternoon.

Following a series of unfortunate events, Hayley needs a lot of money fast. When she learns that an extreme couponing TV game show will be taping in her town, she thinks she can win the cash prize if she can get on the show. She’s thrilled when she learns she’s been chosen to compete. The other contestant is disliked by many. When she’s found murdered, one of Hayley’s friends is a prime suspect. An inexperienced cop starts investigating and Hayley moves to prevent her friend from being charged. Her detecting skills are challenged as clues point to an ever-widening list of potential suspects. (KENSINGTON, Jul., 304 pp., $7.99)
