The characters were interesting,familiar and likeable. If you want a good mystery novel that unfolds in front of your eyes this is the book for you. The twist of the plot was really well written and left me wanting to hear more stories about Abby. For her first book Vicki Briner kept me captivated from the beginning to the end. I started reading and did not want to put the book down.
Can't wait to read more!

This story is a great first novel by the author. The story is well written, flows smoothly, easy to read, it grabs you right away and keeps your attention to the end. The characters are believable and well defined.

Abby Reed is a new reporter whose world is turned upside down when her mentor and friend Patrick McDonnell is murdered. She feels she must do something to honor him, so she decides, with permission from her boss, to finish his last story. This decision, she will soon learn, will get her into situation after painful situation.

Marcus Anderson is an amateur art historian and is also a paralegal to the DA. Marcus and Abby have a rocky start at first with misunderstandings and more. Finally, they get it together and start being friends. Will this friendship turn into love? Only the author knows this. What it does turn into though is a sincere caring for Abby and he turns out to be her knight in shining armor for sure.

As she works on Patrick's story she gets deep into art theft and tries to find out what is going on. With everything she learns, the people behind the scheme break into her home, her office, and bomb her car. All the while, Marcus is there to rescue her and support her.

This is a mystery you can't miss. I recommend it highly.

For those who hate sex scenes, there are none,
For those who hate bloody gore, there is none.

I have no idea why this book got five star reviews. I have the Kindle version and am having a tough time staying interested. The dialogue is too amateurish and stilted for me. I'm not sure if it gets better as it moves forward but if it doesn't I probably won't finish it and I hate starting a book and not reading it. Good thing it was a free download.

This book is a very good first effort. I hope she will continue to follow with the same character(s), especially how the love relationship develops. The writing is clear and the plot well scripted and the surprise ending was refreshing. I look forward to her next novel.

I thoroughly enjoyed A Brush With Death. I found the author's attention to detail informative and especially liked her knowledge on art forgery. The story flowed nicely and being familiar with South Florida, at times felt as if I was right there with the characters. I think she did an excellent job of capturing the readers attention and maintaining it. I am looking forward to reading her second book.

When news reporters get a line on a juicy story, they just work it like a hawk, this reporter not only had a great story lead to follow, but a good start in finding out who killed her friend , Patrick. Love interest, Matcus, was a nice surprise in the equation. Couldn't get enough of this story. I will definitely pick up more of her books.
