Megan Cahill might soon be making the news instead of writing it.
Newspaper editor Megan Cahill loves red pens, clean prose, and fast cars. When a friend is murdered, Meg sets a trap to snare the killer. The bait? One steamed editor with a razor-sharp pen. Only one person stands in her way, a stubborn police detective.
Death is no stranger to Detective Rod Kelter. Two years ago, death stole his family, and the press stole his privacy. To solve a murder, he must join forces with Megan Cahill, but someone wants the smart-mouthed editor dead. Megan and Rod race to unmask a murderer before he writes the final chapter of Meg's life - in blood.
This book has wonderful characters, great suspense, and a lovely romance. The narration is very good but some of the male voices don't "fit" real well for me. Still very good though.
So far this has been the best of the Rebecca Deel's Otter Creek series books.
Meg Cahill, the headstrong, no-nonsense one of the triplets, finds herself the eyewitness to her bff murder...sort of. Rod Kelter, the broken police detective, is working on the case. When Meg’s life is threatened, Rod is her self-appointed protector. Will Rod be able to keep Meg safe while solving the case? Or will Meg’s journalistic side make her more of a target. This book is my favorite in the series, by far. The chemistry between Rod & Meg was palpable and, at times, hilarious. They made a great team & great story.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
Another murder in not-so-sleepy Otter Creek, this time involving another of the triplets, Megan. She is the writer- reporter sister and was assaulted, though not seriously hurt, whilst meeting her close friend and daughter in law to Senator Drake, late at night in the woods. sherry, her friend, was not so lucky. She was shot dead before being able to ell Megan why she had wanted the meeting.
With fears for her safety, and aware of her sometimes aggressive reporting techniques, long time resident and officer in charge of the investigation, Rod, forbids her to do her own snooping this time. Does she take this to heart? Well, not really. And as his concern, and irritation, for her grows, so does his feeling of love.
An enjoyable, gentle romance entwining the unexpected and apparently pointless murder mystery, made more difficult in a small town where most people know each other, again nicely narrated by Christina Fuller Yeun. Having previously read, and enjoyed, the first book in the series, I requested a copy of Written in Blood from the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom, and was very fortunate in being freely gifted a complimentary copy. Thank you. These books are completely stand alone although the pleasure of revisiting characters met in earlier books is a bonus. They are suitable for anyone to read, without overt sex or graphic violence.
