Title: The Season of Sin
Words Mosaic: 5 Mosaic Stones
Heading: Secrets of the Heart
Stacy-Deanne has brought back tough girl, Detective Briana “Bree” Morris and her partner Steven Kemp in The Season of Sin. From the first page, the book takes right off. On the first page, Bree is coming to from being hit over her head, and to matters worse she wakes at the scene of a heinous crime. Bree’s good friend Nadia Hollister has been murdered. The case would easily have been solved if she had seen who done it, but unfortunately all she saw coming was the headache from being hit really hard by the killer. Bree and Steven are not the lead detectives on the case, but she cannot let things go because it was her friend.
As Bree and Steven dig deeper into the heart of the case, Bree realizes there is so much about Nadia that she did not know. People are telling her things that seem unbelievable, but she cannot ignore any of the information surfacing. One could honestly say Nadia lived a double life. No one really knew all there was to know about her. As pieces came together, the person who killed her still eluded me. I guess I am not a detective for a good reason.
Nadia leaves behind her sisters and her daughter Dylan. Immediately the family begins to point the finger at Dylan’s ex-boyfriend Bruce. Even though Dylan is no longer dating Bruce, she cannot believe he would do something this bad. Bruce was in jail before, but Dylan believes he has changed and is working toward being a better person. When different clues keeps bringing the case back to Bruce, Dylan begins to doubt his innocence. Could someone Dylan love really kill her mother? Or is it someone from Nadia’s past coming to pay her back for something she has done wrong?
I read The Season of Sin in less than 24 hours. I was held captive from page one until the very end. When I thought I knew who it was, I learned later on I was wrong. Stacy-Deanne is a really great mystery writer. She does not make it easy to figure out who did the crime at first glance, but the clues are all there. Readers of whodunits and mystery with a hint of romance in the background will enjoy The Season of Sins.

Who would want to hurt, let alone kill, Dr Nadia Hollister? This is the question her friend Detective Brianna Morris is determined to find an answer to. Brianna was found knocked out by her partner, Steven Kemp. Nadia was killed while Bree was downstairs waiting for her. Brianna didn't see who assaulted her, but she will never forget their scent.
I've never read anything by Stacy-Deanne. I learned after the fact “The Season of Sin” is book two in a series. I had no problem keeping up with the pace but I'm anxious to read the first book. The flow is smooth and continuous. The characters are very intriguing. Just when you think you've figured it out, another twist develops. This is a great book and I highly recommend it.

The book opens with a murder and a mystery. While Detective Brianna Morris was at her friend's house, someone knocked her unconscious and killed her friend, Nadia. All Brianna can recall is a certain smell. It is this first clue and Nadia's journals that start the detectives on the search for the killer. As they read through the journals, they learn some very unpleasant truths about Nadia, and these have something to do with the killer's motive. I can't say any more without spoiling the book, except that Nadia didn't mind using some people to get what she wanted and this provides some motives for who might have killed her.
I really enjoyed this book. As in the author's other book, Giving Up the Ghost, I couldn't figure out who the killer was. Just when I thought it was someone, that person was killed off or found to be innocent, so I was back to trying to guessing who did it. I love the twists and turns the author always comes up with. But when I did find out who killed Nadia, I couldn't help but feel sorry for the killer. This wasn't a case where you hated the killer because of the circumstances that led up to the murder.
A secondary plot involved the romantic tension between ex-lovers, detectives Brianna and Steven. I don't know if these two will ever get together, but he's incredibly devoted to her, even when he tried to pursue a relationship with another character in this book. This romantic tension is another part of the book I enjoyed a lot.
I look forward to reading more books featuring Brianna and Steven as they continue to solve murders.
