5 out of 5 chickadees singing!
I was given a copy of this book and am voluntarily reviewing it. I just love this Stella Reynolds series! This latest installment was so enjoyable. Stella reports on a murdered man. His ex-wife, Tabitha, is in jail for the crime, but she says she’s innocent and needs to get home to her kids. Is she telling the truth? As Stella investigates, she finds more and more layers. Soon, Tabitha’s brother is killed at her house. A neighbor swears she saw Tabitha commit both crimes, but Tabith was in jail during the second one. Does Tabitah’s lawyer have anything to do with what’s going on?
In the midst of the murder investigation, Stella is trying to keep her relationship with race car driver Lucky strong. That isn’t so easy when they’re long distance and both so committed to their jobs. Will Stella be able to figure out her love life and solve the case?
I liked the intricate layers to this mystery. I always love reading about Stella’s investigative process as well. We get to see a little bit of where Stella’s crazy friend, Janet, is. It looks like Janet is about to get her own series, which is exciting. I hope Libby keeps writing Stella Reynold’s books, too, because they’re great. This whole series is so enjoyable and I highly recommend them!
