About the Book
Aspen Adams is shocked to find her best friend murdered when out for a morning jog. She doesn’t trust the police and decides to launch her own investigation. But doing so seems to unravel more questions than answers. A major question being, is Aspen herself also the target of a cold blooded killer?
I enjoy the cozy mysteries by this author and have not had the opportunity before now to read one of her suspense novels. I enjoyed how it was edgier than a cozy mystery, but it didn’t cross any lines for me. The book had a lot of action and dealt with some hard hitting issues. It was also written in a smart and sophisticated way that didn’t rely on language or graphic violence. It was a perfect dose of mystery and suspense for me and I look forward to reading more from this series!
