In this post, I’ll be featuring A Fine Year for Murder, from the Author’s Thorny Rose series:
After 10 months of marital bliss, Jessica Faraday and Murphy Thornton are still discovering and adjusting to their life together. Settled in their new home, everything appears to be perfect…except in the middle of the night when, in the darkest shadows of her subconscious, a deep secret from Jessica’s past creeps to the surface to make her strike out at Murphy.
When investigative journalist Dallas Walker tells the couple about her latest case, known as the Pine Bridge Massacre, they realize Jessica may have witnessed the murder of a family while visiting family at the winery near-by, and suppressed the memory.
Determined to uncover the truth and find justice for the murder victims, Jessica and Murphy return to the scene of the crime with Dallas Walker, a spunky bull-headed Texan. Can this family reunion bring closure for a community touched by tragedy or will this prickly get-together bring an end to the Thorny Rose couple?
My Review: 5/5
This is another audiobook that is a hit! Lauren Carr’s mysteries are perfect to listen to. I couldn’t wait to get into my car to listen to more!
The narrator did such a great job. Most of the time, the narrator is the biggest turnoff for me. There have books in the past that have received stellar reviews, and I thought it was just okay, due to the narration. C.J. McAllister did a superb job.
In this book, Jessica’s past is explored. She has been having night terrors, and has decided to get to the bottom of them once and for all. She remembers bits and pieces of a murder that occurred when she was just a child. Murphy and her take a little vacation back to the scene of the crime, and discover secrets the little town of Pine Bridge never wanted discovered.
I love reading about Jessica and Murphy, and enjoyed learning more about them. Their chemistry is strong, and I found myself laughing at their interactions.
I loved this book and was sad when it ended. I only hope the author continues the Thorny Rose series so I can read more about Jessica and Murphy.
All of Lauren Carr’s books are rated PG-13 because they are murder mysteries and will contains murder scenes. Some of the books contain violence associated with military assignments. There are some books that contain sex scenes which are not explicit. There is little profanity, no f-words.
