Review

Martin has continued her masterful story of Lawrence Juste, his past, and his attempts to be the kind of man his hero Atticus Finch would be proud of... You can feel his frustration and his anxiety throughout the whole book.... What seems to be an unravelling in Lawrence's life, is more of the piecing together the quilt of truth...It's a great novel.

Let me put it this way...Here's one reader who can't wait to see how this Trilogy finishes! Brilliant illustration of the psychology of people and how our minds can both conceal, reveal...and hide, even from ourselves... Amazing Novel!

REVIEW

Mystery Novels are one of my favorite genres. There have been some I dnf, they were boring. I didn't find this one boring at all. Patchwork People is among the best mystery novels I've read in a while. This is Book Two of the series but it is a stand alone, so don't worry if you haven't read Book One.

The character, Lawrence Juste, I find very enjoyable. He jumped the gun when he thought all was well because it ended up it wasn't. Blackmail letters start arriving.
early on in the book. Once that started, I knew I was in for a real ride with this one. This was a mystery that I got so attached to, that I couldn't put it down. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I was trying to come to a conclusion of what was going on. My only problem with this book was it finished too soon. That to me is a sign of a good book. You want more and this is how the book ended. The reader wanting a third book. It can't come soon enough.

I was given a complimentary copy of THE PATCHWORK PEOPLE from the author, Deborah Martin for my view of the book. No other compensation took place.

This book by D.B. Martin is an excellent follow up to the first one, Patchwork Man. Have no fear, you won’t be lost if you did not read the first one. However, getting the first book and reading it in order will make for a much more pleasant experience.

After the events of the first book came to a conclusion, Lawrence probably figured he could sit back and relax. Not so fast. A string of provocative notes, new dangers, and new mysteries all smack Lawrence in the face once again! Lawrence past is about to catch up with him. How will it all end this time? The author made the second book even more enjoyable than the first one.

I have been into mystery novels lately, but have been disappointed by quite a few of them. Patchwork People is different, and probably the best I've read thus far. It is Book 2 in the series, but if you haven't read book 1 it doesn't really matter because this is a story of It's own.

Lawrence Juste is an enjoyable character all on his own. He finally thinks that he's off the hook with nothing to fear. However, he will soon discover how wrong that thought is. The blackmail notes start to come in, very early on in the book. Once that started, I knew I was in for a real ride with this one.

From beginning to end, I couldn't seem to put this down. It kept me on the edge of my seat, and also made my mind rattle trying to figure out what was about to happen next.

This was a great read, and I can't wait for the third to come out!

How can you improve on success? If you want to see an author who knows exactly how to achieve this lofty goal, read D.B. Martin's "Patchwork People," the second book of the Patchwork trilogy.

In the first novel, "Patchwork Man", we meet Lawrence A. Juste, QC, noted British counselor whose sterling record before the bar is about to catapult him to the Queen's Bench, the culmination of the dreams of many lawyers in the United Kingdom. The unsuspecting Juste is devastated by the untimely death of his strictly proper wife Margaret, killed by a hit-and-run driver. She has carefully crafted Lawrence's life so his path to the bench will be free of obstacles. Margaret is, by all accounts, the perfect wife for Lawrence. She seems coldly flawless, but was she?

As he takes time to prepare for her funeral, he is unwittingly drawn into the case of a boy who is unjustly accused of a crime. His late wife seems to be reaching out from the grave to direct his steps in this effort. Why would she do this? Is there something she never told her husband? As he plunges into this shadowy world, Juste is reacquainted with a family he has pushed aside and a nemesis he has tried not only to forget but also banish from all aspects of his life. Juste wins the case but at what cost?

In the first novel, Martin brilliantly paints a word picture that challenges you to follow and then provides the equivalent of a literary trail of crumbs to ensure that you do. From cover to cover, "Patchwork Man" is the equivalent of a novel-length trail of crumbs that leads you, quite willingly, to "People."

In "People," the past does rear up to ensnare the unwitting counselor-at-law.

Patchwork people is a great sequel to Patchwork Man. It is part of a Trilogy. Although some reviews say it is a stand alone book, I think you must read the first one in order to really understand all that transpires. Much of the plot refers to what went before and without having read it, you could be missing much of the story line. This book is not lite reading. The story line is intriguing and "twisty, twisty" as the character says.
KennyJuss, now called Laurence Juste (see first book), is a barrister on the way to success until a certain case is forced upon him. All the problems that have transpired in his boyhood, things that he has concealed, begin to unravel his life. Why is a mystery to him and one he must solve to maintain his climb up the ladder of success as well as his freedom.
I thoroughly enjoyed the way this story was written. The plot is convoluted and detailed. I wish I had kept a score card to refer to to keep the happenings and characters straight. Many of the characters are intertwined with each other as are the events in Laurence's life. I almost could not put this book down, wanting to know what, which, or who, would come about next. I highly recommended this book to anyone who enjoys an interesting, intriguing story. I can hardly wait for the third book, due out in April. I have already preordered it.
I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
