{Book Review} - A Deadly Business by Lis Wiehl

If you love to read novels that focus on crime, murder and mystery, you should definitely grab yourself a copy of A Deadly Business by Lis Wiehl. While this is the second book featuring detective Mia Quinn (the first is A Matter of Truth), it can easily be read as a standalone. Mia Quinn is a single parent and a prosecutor who works on high profile violent crimes. As if caring for her children and prosecuting some truly difficult cases is not enough, she recently lost her husband in a car accident, which homicide detective Charlie Carlson has come to believe was not an accident after all. As they delve into this new possibility, a string of hard-to-swallow scandal and chaos ensues making Mia question if she really knew her husband at all. This book is a fast-paced page turner with action and (some predictable) surprises at each turn of the page. Additionally, the scenarios in this book beg the question: Do you really want the truth, no matter the cost?

Over the Summer I was given the opportunity to read the book A Deadly Business by Lis Wiehl, and this was such a wonderful Summer read. I found myself flying through it with little effort. The story line is easy to follow and attention-grabbing to keep you turning those pages. The chapters are short in length, so I found that I would persuade myself that "of course I had time for one more chapter", which may have turned into TEN more chapters. It flows beautifully, so you never have to second-guess your reading or go back to make sure you understood correctly. These kinds of books are perfect for the beach, or now that it is officially Fall, great to pair with a warm blanket and a cup of hot cocoa. I highly recommend this book if you are looking for something engaging and entertaining without making you over think and analyze every sentence.

I rate A Deadly Business with 9 stars:
