Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Superb read – Save Her Soul by Lisa Regan #MurderMystery #Detective

 

Title: Save Her Soul

Series: Detective Josie Quinn #9

Author: Lisa Regan

 

My Review:

This is the ninth book in this series but I suspect it would still be a brilliant read for anyone who enjoys murder mysteries with a police officer as the leading character, even if you haven’t read the other eight books. The police officer is Detective Josie Quinn and she’s not someone to be constrained by expectations or rules. When Denton, the town where she lives and works, is flooded, Josie is out there on the rescue boats. However, she never expected to have to swim in the fast flowing waters to retrieve what she suspects is a tarpaulin wrapped body….. or for that body to be clothed in the jacket of Ray, her teen sweetheart and dead ex-husband . . . .

The victim’s body is that of Beverly Urban, someone Josie regularly clashed with when they went to High school. This is a story of uncovering the past, not only of Beverly but also of some prominent, contemporary, influential residents. As Josie starts to discover more about Beverly there is a mysterious woman contacting her wanting to reveal what happened but someone else is determined to stop the revelations at any cost. Can Josie and her team survive long enough to bring the murderer to justice?

The story is full of surprises, an enthralling read with so many twists and turns to keep you guessing right to the end. It reveals much about Josie’s personal history as she has to remember people and events from her years at High School. It is a gripping read and a brilliant addition to the series with some extra revelations that impinge on her personal relationships, too!

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and thoroughly enjoying doing so, though I hope the next book will have more about Josie’s current romance with Noah, rather than more about Ray!
