ISLAND OF DECEIT
Poarch’s third Quest for the Golden Bowl novel does not disappoint. The characters have distinctive voices that demand to be heard, and happily, they have something to say.
Barbara Turner returns to her family’s home in a quest to flush out her grandmother’s killer. She believes the killer scammed her grandmother and took a large chunk of her life’s savings. Harper Porterfield, Paradise Island’s sheriff, suspects Barbara is hiding something, but he wants to get to know her better. Teaming up to find a killer, Barbara and Harper discover an irresistible love to boot. (DAFINA, Jun., 352 pp., $6.99)
