Lethal Outlook by Victoria Laurie
I love brain candy, but before you begin to think that Lethal Outlook by Victoria Laurie is a piece of fluff, let me give you my definition of brain candy. My kind of brain candy is rich like Godiva chocolate. Intense and absolutely delicious, something that keeps me coming back. A book where I am going along for the adventure and I don’t want it to end.
A book that keeps me up late into the night.
Lethal Outlook was as predicted an absolutely fabulous piece of brain candy. I didn’t want to put it down last night. My brain wanted to continue, but my eyes finally closed on about 4 am.
After her last adventure, Abby aka Edgar, is slowly recovering from her injuries, a fracture pelvis. She is determined to walk down the aisle without her cane. Between physical therapy, running her business, dodging phone calls from sister who is obsessed with planning Abby the perfect wedding and her contractor, Dave, she is in over her head as the book begins then she gets the case of a missing woman handed to her by a mystery woman. A woman who is clearly in danger if anyone knew that she had come to happy for help.
Kendra Moreno, a young mother, has gone missing and investigators have no leads and suspect her husband, Tristan, of doing away for his wife. Abby and her partner Candice know they have a case when Abby sees a picture of the missing woman and knows the she is dead. The only problem is that they don’t have a client. When meetings with both the parents of the missing woman and her husband go wrong it doesn’t look like will be getting paid for their investigation. The two persist and the action of books picks up and takes you in.
One of the best things about a Victorie Laurie mystery is that she weaves it so well that you won’t guess who the killer is until the end of the book. Her heroine is realistic and the rest of the cast of characters are genuine and lovable.
Lethal Outlook is the 10th book in the series. Book 11 – Deadly Forecast is already out and I am happy to say downloaded onto my kindle. The only reason that I am tearing into today is that I have work to do and I know if I get started I won’t stop.
