A Writer’s Apprentice #4
“Writer’s apprentice Lena London is back and better than ever when her friend, bestselling suspense novelist Camilla Graham, needs help solving a town murder that hits a little too close to home. It’s summertime, and Lena and Camilla are busy working away while a town vandal runs amok. Things get even more complicated when an acquaintance pays Camilla a not-so-friendly visit and gives her an ultimatum: reveal Camilla’s husband’s family secret, or she will. Lena assures Camilla that nothing will come of the woman’s threats, since the family has no secret’s to hide. When the woman is later found dead, they’re convinced that whatever secret she was planning to expose led to her death.” ~Berkley Prime Crime
I’ve been enjoying this series from it’s beginnings. Camilla Graham is a successful, suspense writer. She is also my favorite character in all the mysteries. There is a list of Camilla’s best selling books at the beginning of the mystery. Lena London is her assistant. Together, along with the help of very good friends, they solve the community’s mysteries.
Camilla is a strong female. Confident, self-assured, poised. She’s professional and when there is an issue to resolve, she finds the strength within herself to resolve said issue. She is a widow and does have a gentleman friend she is seeing on a regular basis.
In this mystery, a friend from the past, Jane, pays a visit to Camilla informing her, she wants justice for her family and if Camilla doesn’t do the right thing, she will publicly expose her husband’s secret. Camilla has no idea what Jane is referring to. When Jane is discovered dead, Camilla and Lena decide to investigate.
This “secret” Jane was referring to, although not murder, is a very cold case. Camilla and Lena are investigating a forty year old mystery. There are dangers along the way and someone is trying to stop Camilla and Lena from discovering the truth. Good story! Well written! I highly recommend the entire series, but, please read it in order. 5 ***** stars!
A BIG thank-you to Berkley Prime Crime!
