Editorial Reviews:

“The action was great and started from the very first page…This book could easily sit on the shelf with traditionally published novels and beat them hands down.Judge, WRITER'S DIGEST 23rd Annual Self-Published Book Awards

"...a real gem of a novel...This book should be picked up and savored!" Judge, WRITER'S DIGEST 21st Annual Self-Published Book Awards

"Brave and determined, humorous despite it all...an admirable, down-to-earth heroine." KIRKUS REVIEWS

"Strong and feisty, Lauren also displays a tender side that is sweetly sentimental." PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY

 

"Murray's delightful Pennsylvania mystery pits tough but compassionate Lauren Beck, insurance investigator and ex-cop, against unknown adversaries following the death from cancer of her friend Corinne...Murray's characterization and resourcefulness create a consistent persona that supports the central narrative role...convincing, well-phrased detail sustains atmosphere and keeps the plotting vigorous." The BOOKLIFE Prize in Fiction

Reviews:

“I loved the plot and loved the main character. The story has a couple of mysteries in it and until the last page, you have no idea if they are connected or not…It is a light read, even if it has some hard subjects in it… perfect for a weekend chill-out with a good book.” 4* Marina Stevkovska

"Overall I think its the '"realness" of the book that makes it such a great read. Exploring topics such as grief and loss, thrown in with some action and mystery this book is 100% a recommendation from me. So if you're looking for a good book to read then this is definitely one for consideration." 5* Penguiino
