This author’s intense, highly researched thriller/mysteries are always at the top of my reading list. So when I learned she was branching into cozy mysteries, I paused. OMG – she nailed it. I love cozy mysteries but at times wish for a little something more – Dickason provided just that. With her usual well-developed characters, she creates a world filled with small town Texas charm and big city intensity. The main character is literally running for her life when a strange call takes her to a small town with the hope of disappearing. Little does she realize that appearing in Granbury puts her back in the crosshairs. The supporting cast is just as entertaining as the main character Tori. Even the old house and its furnishings are a character all on their own.
I was guessing at every page to figure out the who done it (I was wrong!). I can’t wait for the next book in this series.
PS – Dickson is famous for linking non-fiction into her fiction work and once again provides the reader with the insight for this book, based on fact, at the end.
