Book Review: An Intimate Murder


An Intimate MurderAn Intimate Murder by Stacy Verdick Case
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received a copy of the book through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

A couple, Jonathan and Susan Luther, were brutally murdered in their home. Their son Chad discovers their bodies and the police are called in. Detectives Catherine and Louise are investigating the case. During the investigation, it is learned that Chad also happened to discover his grandmother's body when she was murdered many years before. It appears that the Luther family has had experience dealing with tragedy before.

An Intimate Murder is a good read. The story is written in a manner that will draw the reader in. It is also a book that one would be very reluctant to put down. The twist at the end is unexpected and is a refreshing change from the usual detective novels available out there. This book is definitely worth a read.

Book Review: Fire in the Blood


Fire in the BloodFire in the Blood by Erin M. Evans
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received a copy of the book from NetGalley, in exchange for my unbiased and honest review.

This book centers of the character named Farideh. Farideh plays an important role in the "Sundering" series of books. Erin M. Evans, who was among the authors who wrote books part of the Sundering series, tells us what happened to Farideh as she finds herself in the middle of complicated set of circumstances.

Farideh and her twin sister, Havilar, are in Cormyr. Aubrin is engaged to marry the Princess Raedra although he is trying to make sure that does not happen. As Brin tries to find ways to make sure the wedding never happens (so he can be with Havilar). Meanwhile, within Cormyr, there are political struggles that have resulted in attempts to kidnap the twins.

Fire in the Blood is an exciting read. Though it forms part of the Dungeons & Dragons theme and the twins are characters that have been involved in the Sundering series, this book can be read on its own. The story is fast-paced and the characters are nicely evolved.
