Book Description

Two unsolved murders will tear apart an Alaska fishing town unless a writer and a government agent reveal their secret obsessions.

Treasury agent Parker Browne is working undercover in Petersburg, Alaska to investigate a money scam and a murder. His prime suspect, Liv Hanson, is a freelance writer struggling to save her family's business. Free spirited, full of life, and with a talent for catching liars, she fascinates Parker.

Trying to prove she's a legitimate writer who cares about Petersburg's issues, Liv pens a series of newspaper articles about an old, unsolved murder. When her cold case ties in with Parker's investigation, bullets start to fly.

Parker understands money trails, and Liv knows the town residents. But he gave up on love two years ago, and she trusts no one, especially with her carefully guarded secret. If they mesh their skills to find the killers, will they survive the fallout?

4.0 out of 5 stars Something smells fishy, and it's not just the town... January 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
LIE CATCHERS is a romantic murder mystery set in a contemporary Alaskan fishing town. Rolynn Anderson has a style that bears strong similarity to authors in the mainstream suspense thriller genre. Her storytelling skills are strong and her dialogue sounds realistic to the reader's ear. Description is concise, leaving much to the imagination. Secondary characters are complex and memorable. In particular, I liked the heroine's tough guy brother, Ivor. The writing is tight and stays on point, always following the plot through to the nail biting climax.

Liv Hanson, is a frustrated newspaper columnist who helps out with her family's store and has unfulfilled writing ambitions. She is also a human lie detector with an extraordinary memory. She's a bit frenzied and a little strange, but her quirks are entirely likeable. Early on, she decides to investigate on old unsolved murder in conjunction with the hero's real life investigation. She fictionalizes the historical murder. Unfortunately, I found the story segments written by Liv to be somewhat disruptive to story flow. The author is definitely a more talented writer than her heroine.

Parker Browne is an undercover treasure agent working to solve the drowning death of a local fisherman. The hero is a hard man to get a feel for so I had trouble connecting with him. Throughout the beginning of the story I was left feeling like I didn't really know him. Characterization does become more discernable as the story progresses. Parker is appropriate courageous, protective and considerate and comes through in the end. I enjoyed his chemistry with Liv, although, I would have liked more explicit romantic encounters.

My favorite thing was how the author managed to create such an amazing setting as the backdrop to her story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kept me turning the pages February 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
LIE CATCHERS is a romantic suspense set in the contemporary Alaskan fishing town of Petersburg. I enjoyed this novel and its twists and turns on the way to solving the case and recommend it to anyone who likes a good murder mystery. It kept me up turning the pages way past my bedtime to finish it.
The story is filled with quirky characters and everyone involved in the case has secrets they want kept hidden, including our hero and heroine, but no secret is sacred with a murder to be solved. I loved how Ms. Anderson intertwined the old cold case (inspired by a real-life cold case from 1932) with the new murder and wove in the past issues of the townspeople, hero, and heroine to complicate the investigation. I liked the layers given to the characters in the story, even the secondary characters had depth. My favorite secondary characters were Liv’s harried policeman brother and Parker’s father.
I liked the interaction of the hero and heroine and the slow reveal of their characters, both to us and to each other. Free-lance writer Liv Hanson isn’t your typical heroine. She’s got history, issues, and a fascinating, extraordinary memory she doesn’t want anyone to know about. Parker Browne is an undercover treasure agent, burdened with grief, and a fish out of water in this small fishing community as he tries to pry the truth out of these closed-mouthed villagers to solve a money scam and the murder. I thought the chemistry of these two worked well and I would have liked the romance scenes expanded in the story, particularly at the end.
The mystery was further enriched with fascinating Norwegian and Tlingit cultural information and tidbits. Ms. Anderson’s setting description showed a love of Alaska from her own travels and made me want to visit and experience that unique landscape for myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rich, Intriguing Story December 27, 2013
By Roben
Format:Kindle Edition
I recieved an ARC of this book, and was thrilled to read it. I adored the setting, and the quirkiness of the characters in the small Alaska town. It made me want to go to Alaska. That kind of authenticity comes from an author who knows her setting, who understands its people, and can then convey that knowledge richly. Anderson does just that. Her mystery/suspense, is carefully woven with the right amount of history to engage the reader, and enough mystery to keep the reader guessing. This was my first novel by Rolynn Anderson, and I would definitely read this author again.
