Witness To Murder by Jill Elizabeth Nelson

Poised for an interview, TV reporter Hallie Berglund walks into a murder scene instead. The victim's boyfriend stands over the body, murder weapon in hand. Hallie couldn't stop the crime, but as the star witness, she'll see the man brought to justice…right? Not according to her colleague Brody Jordan, who is convinced the police—and Hallie—are targeting the wrong man. To prove it, he'll need Hallie's help. The victim was wearing a bracelet handcrafted by Hallie's long-dead mother. Now Hallie is the only one who can unearth the secrets of the past—and bring the sinister truth to light.

Up and coming news reporter, Hallie Berglund, arrives for a much anticipated interview certain to boost her ratings, but stumbles into a murder scene. The victim's boyfriend is also on the scene and holds the murder weapon in his hands. Hallie's testimony is paramount to Damon's conviction. Everything points to his guilt. How could he be innocent? Co-worker Brody Jordon, believes in Damon's innocence in spite of the circumstantial evidence pointing to his guilt. Hallie believes Brody is resistant to see the truth, because Damon is a sport hero, one Brody admires. When Hallie discovers the victim's bracelet was handcrafted by her long-dead mother, Hallie begins to search for another truth, the secrets to her past. The answers to both mysteries rest in a deeper investigation to what Hallie believes she has witnessed. Hallie learns that things are not always as they appear. That may include Brody Jordon, too. Jill Nelson has woven together as intriguing a story as it is entertaining. A definite page turner, it is well worth the read for both the lover of mystery and those who enjoy a good love story.

Hallie Berglund is a news reporter who arrives at the home of a fashion model to conduct an interview only to find the model has just been murdered and the victim's boyfriend is standing over her with the murder weapon in his hand. Adding to the mystery, Hallie notices that the victim is wearing a bracelet made by Hallie's mom who died years ago. Hallie is convinced that the victim's boyfriend, Damon is the murderer, but her colleague Brody is certain Damon is innocent. Hallie and Brody form an unlikely team to find the answers to this mystery, and the sparks begin to fly. Reading Witness to Murder by Jill Elizabeth Nelson reminded me of watching the TV show 24. Each chapter ended with a cliffhanger that kept me turning page after page until late into the night. Jill Elizabeth Nelson is very good at writing an interesting and suspenseful story with just enough twists, turns and mystery (and some romance!). This book will grab you on the very first page and keep you hanging on. I really enjoy a good mystery and Witness to Murder fits in that category. I will look forward to more mysteries from Ms. Nelson. If you are looking for some good suspense, read this book, you will love it.

Witness to Murder by Jill Elizabeth Nelson is part of the Love Inspired Suspense line from Steeple Hill. Hallie Berglund is an up and coming news reporter in Minnesota when she stumbles onto a murder scene: a beautiful model has been strangled to death and her boyfriend stands over the body with the weapon in his hands. Because of something in her past, Hallie is determined that the girl receive justice for her death, but co-worker Brody Jordan doesn't believe the boyfriend is guilty and is equally determined to prove it. They work together comparing clues and discoveries to find the truth, which may hold a piece to Hallie's own puzzled past. These types of romantic suspense novels can quickly slip into cliche, but Smith makes her characters original and the story compelling. Lots of red herrings are thrown out as the chemistry between the two reporters sparks. One small complaint: the villain spent too much time revealing every piece of his plan and his motives at the end; it felt unnatural to the rest of the action within the scene. Nelson is a writer who I always enjoy, and this title is another terrific example of her writing.
