Content Rating: PG + M (Please be aware that TWOFER MURDER is a murder mystery. There are depictions of murder and some violence–though easy on the gore contents. No f-words but there may be some mild profanity, and mild religious expletives such as “damn”, “hell” and “Oh God!”. Some depictions of brief sexual content (kissing).

Twofer Murder is a treat for fans of best-selling author Lauren Carr’s fast-paced mysteries! Lauren’s latest novel contains the main characters from her three successful series: Mac Faraday, Lovers in Crime, and Thorny Rose mysteries. The guys go away for a fishing weekend only to get caught up in the murder of a journalist investigating fraud at a timber company. Meanwhile, the ladies are spending the weekend in the presidential suite at a posh resort where Jessica Faraday is to accept a lifetime achievement award for her late grandmother at a murder mystery writers conference. But before they have time to get their facials, they get wrapped up in their own real mystery when an up and coming author ends up dead!

My Review: 4/5
I love all of the characters in Lauren Carr’s books. This book was a great reunion of all of them. Deciding to go on a fishing trip, Mac, Joshua, Murphy, JJ, and Tristan head out for an adventure. In typical Carr style, they encounter a mystery in the small town of Scary, WV and step in to assist.
The wives/girlfriends head on their own adventure: a writers conference. Of course, they also find themselves in the middle of a mystery.
Twofer is not my favorite of Carr’s books. While I absolutely love the characters and all of their chemistry, it was difficult to keep up with everyone. Usually, there is one mystery to keep track of, but with two and all of the supporting characters introduced, I felt like I needed to write down everyone with notes just to keep it straight. Because of this, I can’t give the book a perfect 5.
I still love Carr’s writing and her elements of humor thrown in (i.e. the missing tarantula (Monique) and the case of the missing cheeseballs!) I found myself laughing out loud.
The narrators also did a fantastic job. With so many different characters, they did a good job trying to differentiate each one with a different voice. The expressions and voice tones made for a very enjoyable read.
Even though this is not my favorite, I still highly recommend Twofer!
