Every so often I go off the leash and wander around in other genres. I don’t see it as being unfaithful. More like taking a look around to see that else is out there. That’s how I found Kathy Bennett and Maddy Divine.
A Deadly Blessing is the first in a four book series and I ripped through the first three in a matter of days. I don’t know if it was the way Bennett nailed the characters down in a terse, almost noir style, or maybe the truthfulness on the page. Each book has a mystery to be solved and if finding the bad guys wasn’t hard enough, the cops are all human, too. That shouldn’t be a surprise to anybody who thinks about it for a moment. Bennett made sure I thought about it.
Detective stories aren’t on my normal bill of fare these days. This book reminded me of why I needed to add more mystery to my diet. Why not grab a sample and see how it works for you?
