A solid cozy with a plot like the Energizer Bunny. It keeps on going and takes the reader along for a twisting ride.
What would you do if your aunt went missing? Especially if the police tell you she has committed suicide but there is no body, only a note. Casey Alexander, when faced with this dilemma in Where the Truth Lies by Elizabeth Ludwig and Janelle Mowery, digs in her heels and starts sleuthing. No matter the frightening and dangerous actions that are taken to try to keep her from delving any deeper into her aunts disappearance, Casey keeps going. She begins the search alone in her aunt¿s sleepy town of Pine Mills, but soon pairs up with local nursery owner Luke Kerrigan to follow the trail. Or does she pair up with him? As much as she finds Luke attractive, she has suspicions about his involvement in Liddy¿s disappearance. Does Luke have a reason to want Aunt Liddy dead? If so, did he kill her? Is he the one behind the threatening incidents that keep occurring? These are all questions Casey must sift through and answer even as her heart tells her to trust him. Though there is much more to this plot, lots of unexpected turns and surprises, I¿ll stop right here before I inadvertently give a piece of the plot away. Wouldn¿t want to spoil the great twists in store for you. Twists that are guaranteed to keep you up at night reading when you should be in bed sleeping. The Ludwig and Mowery writing duo have penned a solid mystery with a sweet romance that is equally as enjoyable. The characters are interesting and believable, the writing is tight, crisp and fast moving. Where the Truth Lies is the first cozy mystery in the Massachusetts Mayhem Mystery and I for one, look forward to the second in the series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
