 Happy Release Day!!

Congrats Deanna
on the release today of
Death Becomes You!

Death Becomes You by Deanna Lynn Sletten
Women's Crime Fiction, 194 pages
Published August 10, 2021 by Deanna Lynn Sletten

Rachel Emery hadn’t planned on investigating a murder mystery again after her first and only experience solving a long-ago murder. But when her friend, romance writer Ariel Weathers, called her, frantic about her dead ex-husband stalking her, Rachel is too intrigued to refuse to investigate it.

As Rachel digs up information about Randall’s death, new twists and turns keep springing up, taking her in several directions. And when the original case investigator, Jack Meyers, joins in, they seem destined for choppy waters. Then a shocking new murder takes the two sleuths down yet another path that becomes more deadly by the minute.

What happened the day Randall went out for a cruise on his yacht? Did he die as they’d thought, or was he setting up a devious plan of murder? 

My thoughts about Death Becomes You ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"Rachel Emery sat at her desk, working on a romance novel cover for one of her authors."

I loved book #1 in this series, The Truth About Rachel, and was super excited that there was going to be more Rachel! Death Becomes You is even better, IMHO. Rachel is more confident in her character's role and has this sleuthing thing down. 

This is a definite page-turner with lots of twists and turns as Rachel tries to figure out how and why Randall died. And why not throw in another murder, just for a bit more excitement? The introduction of Jack, the FBI guy who first worked the case, was a nice addition to the story and I can't wait to see them work together again. Maybe? Who knows?

This is a great series and I highly recommend it! The next installment is scheduled to be out next summer. Yay! Grab both books now so you're ready. 

I received an ARC of Death Becomes You from the author and this is my honest opinion.
