Reasons to Read “Game of Deceit” + A Giveaway
This book is a little different from the cozy mysteries I read so often and hold dear. But when I heard fellow mystery blogger, Kim Davis, of Cinnamon Sugar and a Little Bit of Murder, had written a book, I knew I had to give it a try. If the book was half as good as the baked goods that she posts to her website, I knew I was in for a treat.
Game of Deceit is a stand alone novel (even though if the author wanted, she could totally tell more of the story, I think we’d gladly take it!) that follows Kathryn Landry. Kathryn has a great life. An interior design business she loves, a husband, a devoted assistant, and financial stability. But pain and sorrow lurk beneath the surface of Kathryn and her life.
When her husband disappears, very similar to the way her father did many years ago, the pain and sorrow that Kathryn had been able to keep so hidden comes back. And she is determined to get to the bottom of, not only her husband’s disappearance, but what really happened with her parents as well.
The Suspense Was Fun!
As a person who traditionally reads cozy mysteries, it was fun to change things up a little bit. The author didn’t follow the traditional cozy roadmap, which made for an exciting read. You just didn’t know what would happen!
Twists and Turns That Keep You Guessing
This book kept me guessing. Just when I thought I knew where things were going, I’d be thrown for a loop. This was a book that I didn’t even try to guess as I read. I just sat back and let the author take me for the ride.
The Ending Leaves You Wondering
For a stand alone mystery, it left me with enough questions I’d love to see a sequel that follows up on a few things. If this is the only book, I also do enjoy doing my own speculating as to how things play out. I think it says a lot for a book and characters when you keep thinking about them and wondering what they are up to after you turn the final page.
Thrills, Suspense, and Mystery.
A Game of Deceit has it all. This would be a great one to read on a rainy weekend or on a chilly Saturday morning in front of the fireplace. Kim Davis has a hit on her hands and I can’t wait to see where her writing takes her from here.
I also have a great giveaway to offer you.
