Once again Alex Duggins finds herself involved in a murder investigation. Kyle Gammage finds the body of an unidentified woman. He and his elder brother, Scoot, are beside themselves with worry. Their father is a long-haul truck driver and leaving his boys alone for weeks at a time is a secret they all keep.
But now that the boys are involved, Alex, her friend Toni the veterinarian, her mother, and several others in the small community unite in keeping this information from the police.
But her silence may not be the best thing ... someone abducts Kyle. Are they afraid that he may have seen the killer? Is her silence putting those she loves in danger? Who is the murdered woman? Where is the boys' father? So many questions ...so few answers.
I liked the mystery .. the story premise is very good. It's not exciting, as something surprising popping up on every page, but it is engaging and kept me reading. The characters are credible and makes me want to go back to the beginning to read this particular series.
Many thanks to the Author / Severn House / Netgalley for the digital copy of LIES THAT BIND. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
The MC, Alex Duggins own the local pub. A friend, Tony Harrison owns the veterinary clinic and there is a relationship between them. Kyle Gammage who works for Tony discover a body. Alex learns the Kyle and his brother Scoot have been living by themselves while their Father is working and has not been presented for some time. In order to protect the boys from Social Services, they lied to the police. The reason The Father is missing most of the time is critical to the story. The lie involved them with the murder. There are enough turns in the narrative to keep you changing the pages. The ending is a surprise and intriguing. I highly recommend this book.
Disclosure: I received a free copy from Severn House for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.
Author Stella Cameron provides strong characters in Alex and her boyfriend Tony, the village vet, as well as Dan and Bill, tight lipped law enforcement agents who are sent to investigate a murder and end up with so much more. Cameron peoples her book with supporting figures who are interesting without being stereotypes. This is a good mystery that moves along quickly. Although there are some personal aspects to the story, the suspenseful plot takes the lead. There is a surprise ending as a minor thread emerges assuming major importance.
I would like to extend my thanks to netgalley.com and to Severn House for giving me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
