About the Author

Terry Lynn Thomasgrew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, which explains her love of foggy beaches and Gothic mysteries. When her husband promised to buy Terry a horse and the time to write if she moved to Mississippi with him, she jumped at the chance. Although she had written several novels and screenplays prior to 2006, after she relocated to the South she set out to write in earnest and has never looked back.

Now Terry Lynn writes the Sarah Bennett Mysteries, set on the California coast during the 1940s, which feature a misunderstood medium in love with a spy. Neptune’s Daughter is a recipient of the IndieBRAG Medallion. She also writes the Cat Carlisle Mysteries, set in Britain during World War II. The first book in this series, The Silent Woman, came out in April 2018 and has since become a USA TODAY bestseller. When she’s not writing, you can find Terry Lynn riding her horse, walking in the woods with her dogs, or visiting old cemeteries in search of story ideas.

Cat Carlisle appears at first to be a woman resigned to yet absorbed by her problems—infertility, her cheating husband, and avoiding her few good friends. She’s an outsider, though she’s proved herself to her husband’s family and friends, for all the good it does her now, as her husband’s sister, Isobel, has made her a particular target to reinforce her self importance. Cat manages to side step Isobel and rise above the petty tyrannies forced on her. There are allies she does not quite see, also, because she’s a good hearted, intelligent woman despite it all. It’s easy to see at the onset why this is such a popular suspense novel. It’s well written and moves at a fairly brisk pace; Cat is very likable, a cut above the people who try to keep her down, looked up to by the people who need her. The only dangers, it appears at first, are empty threats from Isobel and perhaps using the wrong fork at an important dinner. Well, hold on there. It’s also pre-WWII Britain, Hitler and Germany beginning to beat the war drums. Cat’s husband has something to do with the Air Ministry and makes quite a bit of money whatever he’s doing. The novel really takes off when one spy notices another spy sitting outside of Cat’s house and involves Cat in finding out why. Really enjoyable domestic spy thriller, looking forward to the second book in the series. :D

It was an interesting plot that had a number of twists. Some were pretty far fetched but enjoyed it just the same

Review I really enjoyed reading this historical mystery. The setting is in Pre-World War 2 England which really works well with the spy/mystery aspect of the story. My favorite character was the main character, Catherine. I love that she has the strength and courage to go against society rules to seek out happiness. I also like the supporting characters of Annie, Aunt Lydia, and Thomas all of which have strong likable personalities. This is a well-written book with well-paced suspense interwoven into the lives of these characters. This is a great start to a new series, the only thing I had a problem with was the prologue (I just kept getting distracted but the info it supplies comes into play later in the book) after I got past it I couldn’t put the book down. I really enjoyed the spy aspect of the mystery. I would recommend this book to historical and cozy mystery lovers alike. I received this book from Netgallery. All thoughts and opinions are my own and in no way have been influenced.
