I am a huge fan of Carlene Thompson. I have read all of her books and I think they are all great reads. I live in West Virginia and I love how she writes about our state with a positive image. Her books always keep you guessing till the end and there is always a great plot to keep you interested. If anyone has not read her books, I feel sure you will not be dissapointed. I am hooked as a fan.
I love Carlene Thompson. Her books keep you guessing until the end.
A"light" mystery/thriller. Had me guessing, was a fun read.
Very good mystery and suspense story!
a few deaths around town all centered around one woman,did she do it?
I really enjoyed this book! It was fun, suspenseful, and it knew when to end. I would much rather read a 300 page book that is entertaining, gets to the point and keeps you turning the pages, than a 500 page story that drags on and on, making you long for the ending.
Blaine Avery is a beautiful, young vibrant woman who was suspected but never charged in the apparent suicide death of her older and wealthy husband. Now, 6 months later, people around Blaine are dying, shortly after being in her company. Are the rumors true? Is Blaine a cold-hearted killer, or is she being setup to take the blame for someone elses' crimes? Blaine claims to receive mysterious phone calls playing childrens songs right before the bodies are discovered. Is she lying to throw the police off track?
This book flowed so easily and was over before I knew it. It is a completely entertaining read. It won't take long to finish this book, but you'll be glad you took the time.
Good suspense. This book was hard to put down.

I read all of her books. She is always a great read.
I recently discovered this author, and this book does not disappoint! Ms. Thompson has a unique style of introducing multiple possible 'villians' and then, through the story, has a way to convince you that you know who the killer is, only to flush out that character's story and prove that it isn't. I had it narrowed down to two, and both were wrong. If you like good suspense with just a little eeriness thrown in, you will like this book!
