Lamb introduces support characters to her readers giving them each characters backstory and their role in the storyline as her story proceeds.
The author places her readers in the middle of a story of manipulation and danger, as they follow Kate and her war council members as they search for the murderer. Lamb skillfully illustrates the value of trust, family and friendships. MULTIPLE MOTIVES keeps readers' involement in Lamb's spellbinding story.
Two old friends, Kate Huntington and Rob Franklin, and their families are targeted by an unknown person. They are being attacked using multiple methods while they try to convince the police detective that the attacks are real. Kate, Rob, their family, and friends race to figure out who the guilty person is before it's too late.
These are strong characters who will have you rooting for them to find the perpetrator and find peace in their lives again.
I had to keep reading to find out who was causing these good people so much pain.
I found it difficult to empathize with the MCs who were not likable and lacked believability, because of their actions. Example: the disturbingly close relationship of male and female friends, who had spouses.
The plot itself suffers from clichéd tropes: 1) the police are hateful, brainless idiots, 2) the MCs non-investigate while the murderer targets them, and 3) a blinking neon sign is pointed at suspect(s), which means he/she/they must be innocent. As a mystery reader, I enjoy guessing the culprit’s identity, but in this story there were no indications that another character was guilty.
There are other problems, but I’ll close with: this book needed a good editor/grammarian.
The story is interesting and well thought out. It also avoids the usual formula that is so popular and over-used now (Woman with an attitude who is inexplicably irresistible to secretly wealthy, handsome, well-endowed cop with incredible patience toward woman who repeatedly tells him to get lost and lists her numerous bad qualities while butting into situations she is absolutely not qualified for. Sorry, end of rant.).
The editing was very thorough, a unique quality in a digital book. Well done and thank you!
I really enjoyed reading this book and recommend it to anyone looking for a well-written story that keeps your interest without descending to graphic descriptions of gore and brutality. I think this author cares about writing, not just about pandering to cheap sensationalism.
