The Dead Will Tell: A Kate Burkholder Novel by Linda Castillo is a dark romantic suspense. It’s well written and had me up into the middle of the night finishing it. It starts with a murder in an Amish community about thirty years ago. Now its present time and people are being killed. Kate investigates and it looks like the people who are dying were involved in the murder many years ago. Who will be next? Can Kate catch the killer before another body is found? The plot is well crafted. It grabs you and you want to find out who and what. I also recommend this one.
The last one is Fatal Affair by Marie Force. It’s another dark romantic suspense. It’s well-written, well-developed characters and a plot that grabs you in the first few paragraphs and keeps you reading, unable to put the book down. Senator John O'Connor is found brutally murdered in his bed. The conflict between the hero/heroine spills into the story. They shouldn’t be involved. She’s a cop and he’s a material witness. It could compromise the case. But they can’t stop. The bodies keep piling up. Is it the congressman’s brother? And the family keep s telling lies. Another one I couldn’t put down and recommend.
What about you? Have you read any books over the summer you’d like to recommend?
