Jessy5 Stars Out Of 5Justice DelayedMay 16, 2018JessyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5this story was very delightful! The detective and crime reporter are actually childhood friends, almost family since he and her older brother have been best friends since elementary. Lately though their feelings have been changing and harder to conceal as they work together on the case that is opening old wounds for Andis family. Her brother who is a police officer, is resistant to his best friend reopening the close case and with his sisters involvement. Patricia Bradley has a great sense of humor, I was literally laughing out loud as I listened on my ear phones at work. Although my coworkers eyed me suspiciously I could not help myself as I enjoyed the banter the author created between the siblings, along with the teasing among the characters. The plot itself was very clever, it had me guessing who done it, and I couldnt have been more wrong with my suspect and how the murder actually occurred.
This book is great for anyone who enjoys fast pace stories, great mysteries, suspense, romance, and great humor:)!

CozyWriter'sDen5 Stars Out Of 5A good mysteryMay 7, 2017CozyWriter'sDenQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This was a good read and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a clean, non-graphic, entertaining murder mystery. After reading several incredibly graphic crime novels (from Christian publishing houses) recently it was really nice to read something that didn't make my stomach turn or give me nightmares. This is proof you can have a good mystery without resorting to awful graphic detail. Well done, Patricia Bradley! More Christian authors needs to take note of what you've accomplished here.
As to why else I liked it, I really enjoyed how the plot of this book was laid out! It was done a little differently, in that the forward of the book pretty much explains why Andi Hollister's sister was murdered and gives some large hints as to who did it. As the author jumps into present time and follows Andi as she tries to figure out the crime the reader is a step ahead. I haven't read a book written in this style for a while, and it was fun cheering on Andi and her friends as they wandered closer and closer to the truth. Patricia Bradley also did an impressive job on maintaining the suspense even though the reader does have the upper hand with the knowledge she shares in the beginning. It didn't get dull at all.
Another interesting part of this book that really got to me was Andi Hollister's narcotic habit. I don't want to get into it too much, but what starts out as an innocent prescription for a little of back pain slowly turns into a monster. What starts out as one pill on occasion, when her back is really hurting her, suddenly become ten then twelve pills a day as the stress of finding her sister's true murderer builds. Almost by accident, Andi finds herself in the sort of trouble she never would have dreamed would befall her. This fall into addiction was wonderfully and insightfully written. Again, well done Patricia Bradley.
The romance in this novel is tentative and sweet, but certainly not the main focus of the story - more like a nice side dish.
A well done novel and one that I would definitely recommend.
Thank-you to Graf Martin Communications and Baker Publishing House for a complimentary copy of this novel in exchange for my honest opinion.

Words that could save a man from being unjustly executed for a crime that he did not commit, tucked inside a mysterious letter that vanishes as quickly as it appears. A message that could open, what everyone thought was an open and shut case eighteen years earlier, not to mention the traumatic effect it would impose on the victim's family and friends.
Andi Hollister and her brother Brad are outraged when their friend Detective Will Kincaide of the Memphis Cold Case Unit dares to insinuate that his cousin Jimmy might be innocent of their sister's murder. The man confessed at the scene, even though he later indicated it was under duress. As others who were associated with their deceased sibling, the night she was killed, rise to the surface, the evidence begins to mount up; some things about the case need to be reexamined so that justice is not delayed.
This story is filled multiple characters and intersecting story threads, which is to be expected in the first novel of a new series. Perhaps that could be distracting, or perhaps the reader will enjoy following a menagerie of trails, just as long as they all lead to the truth. Who killed Stephanie Hollister and why?
Angela SuzanneAge: 18-24Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Riveting suspenseApril 9, 2017Angela SuzanneAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The suspense in this book was riveting. It kept ramping up until the conclusion. I thought it was an interesting take to have the main characters try to save someone on death row and prove that he was innocent of the crime he had confessed to. I liked that there were enough bread crumbs for me to feel like I was figuring it out but not enough for me to have it all figured out before the full story was revealed. There were a couple of loose ends that weren't tied together by the end and weren't really explained how they fit into the story. I don't know if those parts will come into a later book in the series but I doubt it. Overall, it was a well written romantic suspense.
