Book Review: A Deadly Business

Product Details
First, the housekeeping: 
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers <http://booklookbloggers.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 <http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/waisidx_03/16cfr255_03.html> : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

Now for the "meat"!

Mia, a widow with 2 children, is a prosecutor for violent crimes.  Scott, her husband, was a CPA who was killed in an apparent accident.  After Mia's house alarm goes off (ending a hellish day), Charlie (a homicide detective) starts putting 2 and 2 together regarding the circumstance of Scott's death.  Was it an accident, or was it murder?

This book got my attention right off the bat.  While some of the occurrences in the book were somewhat predictable (I may have rolled my eyes when Mia found a picture of Scott with another woman), I had to know how it all tied together.  
The ending of this book was different than the books I've read this summer.   I had to slap my forehead for not figuring out a connection in the book, but that made it more interesting.  This book had so much going on in it, occurrences that happened one right after another, that it was very hard to put it down. 
 Often, if I come across typos or grammatically incorrect statements, it ruins the book for me.  I saw none of that in this book, which made reading it that much more enjoyable.
If you like a book that keeps you interested in it from cover-to-cover, as well as one that has a few surprises, then you would enjoy this book as much as I.

  1. Thanks for the review.
    I see the author on Fox News and wondered if her books were worth reading.
