Author: Yolanda Renee
Publisher: Whampa, LLC
Genre: Adult Murder Mystery
A killer plays cat and mouse with a young widow against the snowy backdrop of an Alaskan winter. Branded a black widow after the suspicious death of her millionaire husband, Sarah Palmer flees Seattle for Anchorage. But the peace and quiet she hoped to enjoy in her hometown is soon shattered: The killer is murdering Sarah look-alikes on the 14th of each month, taunting Sarah with a valentine of evidence. After her experiences in Seattle, Sarah is slow to go to the police. When she finally does, she finds Detective Steven Quaid, who is called on to protect the beautiful widow from a stalker intent on her destruction. Steven is not entirely sure she is not behind the scheme herself, and before long Sarah has him wound up tighter than barbed wire. Is Sarah a victim or a very skilled manipulator? With a killer on the loose and a climbing body count, Steven can’t afford to hedge his bets-or his life.
Why you should read it:
I’m a sucker for a love story…and a good whodunit mystery in the flair of Jessica Fletcher’s Murder She Wrote series. when I saw the cover of Ms Renee’s book, I had the feeling I was going to like this story. It doesn’t hurt to throw in the Alaskan backdrop and a cute cowboy named Steven into the mix. Ms. Renee has others in this series but this stand alone creation was certainly a good effort at keeping my attention on a quiet Sunday afternoon.
