In a Manner of Speaking by Barbara Cutrera

Neile Landry, a talented corporate interpreter, must face her past fears and rethink her future plans when she's confronted with deception, threats to her life, and murder. Her wealthy employer dies in a suspicious car accident that also critically injures her best friend, leading Neile to form an unlikely partnership with Scotsman Ewen Erskine, whose uncle died unexpectedly that same night. As secret plans for a global healthcare network are revealed, more deaths follow. Neile soon finds herself in a personal as well as professional relationship with Erskine as they work together in their efforts to uncover the truth. Their journey takes them from Louisiana to Scotland, but the killer follows. As they grapple with insidious attacks by an elusive sociopath, Neile struggles to overcome increasing difficulty with a congenital heart condition and her painful past, while Erskine tries to deal with terrible secrets from his youth. In the terrifying inevitable confrontation with the killer, Neile realizes that more is at stake than she ever imagined. If the murderer prevails, then everyone she cares about will die. Neile resolves to stop the killer but wonders if she'll lose her own life in the process.

About the Author

Barbara Cutrera has been a writer since childhood but didn’t begin writing novels until 1999. Her first novel to be completed was Over, Under, Across & Through, which is the initial book in her fiction trilogy that also includes A Good Man’s Life and Mercy. Not satisfied to be limited by writing in only one genre, she next penned a mystery, In a Manner of Speaking. Cutrera took a dare from friends who suggested she write a romance and wrote The Healer’s Gift. She has since added A Lovely Dream, a suspense novel filled with romance, and Prim and Proper, a true romance, to her list of novels in queue for publication. She is currently working on a new mystery entitled Lucky.
Those who have read and enjoyed Cutrera’s books come from diverse backgrounds, age groups, and professions. Some of the most common comments she receives from readers are, “Your characters are so real.” “I couldn’t put the book down, because I had to know what was going to happen next.” “I felt like I was actually there!” “Your characters come alive.” Writers love to hear words like that from readers!
Cutrera was born and raised in Louisiana and moved to Florida with her family in 2004. She works with the visually-impaired and is visually-impaired herself. She firmly believes that our minds are only limited by the restrictions that we place upon them. That is why her literary credo is, “Transcending reality by exploring it one story at a time….”

I really enjoyed this book. Very well written. A great story and well thought out characters. I could actually picture the scenes in my head as I read. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. The author hit a home run with this story.

What a fabulous mystery! Readers will empathize with Neile and be entranced by Ewen. The novel highlights the struggle between the humanity and inhumanity that co-exists within our world and how it can lead to deceit, stalking, outright cruelty, and murder. You won't know until the last page of the book what the outcome will be. A must-read!

This book was a great read! The suspense built as the book progressed, and there were harrowing scenes and a lot of intrigue. The characters seemed so real, and parts of the book were heart-stopping. The novel provided the reader with several twists and left me hanging a few times. I really wasn’t sure how things were going to turn out but was extremely satisfied with the ending and the book. I would highly recommend it to those who enjoy mysteries and thrillers!
