Sunset In Old Savannah, By Mary Ellis

 

  The Price Investigators are on the job and working a case of infidelity that turns into a murder case. I enjoyed all of the twists and turns that kept me guessing until the end. This book labeled as a Christian, Murder & Thriller.  I found it a wonderful mix that had all three with.. yes, a nice romance as well! 

 

I requested a copy through NetGalley and my honest opinion and review is voluntary.

 

ABOUT THE BOOK: 

In Savannah, Everyone Has Something to Hide

When socialite Evelyn Doyle hires investigative partners and best friends Michael Preston and Elizabeth Kirby to do some routine surveillance on her wayward husband, the detective duo find themselves embroiled in a mystery that leaves them in this beautiful, historic city longer than they had expected.

Evelyn’s husband turns up dead, leaving her as the police chief’s prime target. The investigation reveals a hodgepodge of potential murderers, including a scheming business partner, a resentful mistress, and a ne’er-do-well brother. It’s up to Mike and Beth to follow the trail of secrets that reaches further than the branches of the moss-draped oaks of Savannah.

As praise of the agency gets around town, business is growing for Price Investigations. When Mike and Beth hire Kaitlyn Webb, Savannah’s newest transplant, their workload eases, but will the ghosts of her past threaten everyone’s safety before a killer can be put behind bars? And can Mike and Beth find love as their friendship and faith are put to the test?

Solve by Christmas by Amber Schamel

I enjoyed this book. A mystery had to be solved by Christmas or someone was going to die! Jasper is on the case and Jasper thinks quite a lot about himself! Interesting how Jasper is learning about more than just the facts pertaining to the case. I agree with the author.. He’s certainly a mix between Sherlock and Barney Fife! Enjoyable Christmas mystery!

When sabotage threatens the Rudin Sugar Factory, Detective Jasper Hollock believes this will be his first real case. But dear Mr. Rudin—the only father Jasper has ever known—holds a different assignment for his private investigator.

“I’ve struck a deal with God, Jasper, and you’re my angel.”

Mr. Rudin charges Jasper to build a “case” of reasons for his employer to continue his life. If he fails, Mr. Rudin will end it in suicide on Christmas night.

As the incidents at the factory become life threatening, Jasper’s attempts at dissuading Mr. Rudin prove futile, and Jasper is left staring at the stark reality of his own soul. Time is ticking. Jasper must solve both cases by Christmas before Mr. Rudin, the company, and Jasper’s faith, are dragged to perdition. Will this be the Christmas Jasper truly discovers what makes life worth living?

“Amber Schamel’s engaging prose weaves together not one, but two edge-of-your-seat threads in this historical mystery. With the hero racing against time to solve the two cases readers will be kept guessing as they attempt to crack the case. “ ~ Laura V. Hilton author of Christmas Admirer (Whitaker House)

The Priority Unit

 A mysterious computer program being designed under a cloak of mystery. Multiple programmers each with one key component and no access to the rest of the program! I was drawn right into the middle of this mystery when the main programmer disappears without a trace. If you like lots of action, a mystery with interesting twists and turns, you will enjoy helping Harvey figure out this deadly mystery!

 

ABOUT THE BOOK: A missing man.
A mysterious computer program –
Even the people constructing it don’t know what it will do.
On the worst night of Harvey Larson’s life, his partner is killed and his wife, Carrie, walks out on him. Ten years later, the Portland, Maine police detective has learned to cope with his grief and depression. When he and the Priority Unit investigate the disappearance of software designer Nick Dunham, he meets a young woman who will change his life. Jennifer Wainthrop was the last person to admit seeing Dunham alive.
Harvey and his partner, Eddie Thibodeau, stay a step ahead of a bomber and put together the clues that tell the truth: Dunham’s kidnapping and the bombings are one case, and Jennifer is caught in the middle. News that Carrie has committed suicide may plunge Harvey back into despair. Harvey turns to God for help untangling his complicated life. He finds strength in his faith as he attempts to save Jennifer from the same grim fate that claimed Nick. But Jennifer must depend on her own wits and God alone when the killer gets too close.

 

Echo Canyon

 

I enjoyed this story of young Iris and learning about the hard life this young Mormon woman would have lived. Settling in Utah in the 1800’s was a lot of hard work for Iris when she was placed into a family she didn’t know because a husband had been chosen for her. Hard work and trying to fit in where she didn’t want to be.. I was totally rooting for her to run to the shelter offered by the Sherman’s.  Wild horses, the Army, the struggles of settling the wildness of Utah and the faith it took to survive made for a great backdrop for a little romance and a wild race to the end.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Iris Perkins is told she will be married soon to a man she despises. A chance visit by two brothers and a beautiful woman from the other side of Echo Canyon gives her hope. For Edward Sherman, venturing into Utah with his brother to buy horses is risky. He only wants to find the livestock they need and get back to Fort Bridger, until he meets a frightened young woman in need. He’ll do anything he can to save Iris, even race against the man determined to marry her.

The Saboteur

 

This Police investigation soon had Debra into the mix of things when she took a job as the Sergeants secretary. Mystery, sabotage from inside and a touch of romance kept me turning the pages as each mishap just added more intrigue to the story!  Fast paced and lots of twists and turns made this one I was asking,  who?  who? Right to the end!

 

ABOUT THE BOOK:  Debra Griffin takes a job at the local police station as secretary to the detective sergeant, Michael Van Sant. Michael is trying to learn who wants to sabotage his unit, and Debra is soon caught up in his hush-hush investigation—while she tries not to fall head over heels for her boss. But danger is nearer than she thinks. When she confronts the saboteur, Mike and his detectives race against the clock. But is one of the men he trusted trying to get Debra out of the way and bring them down?
