A Fine Year for Murder

(1 customer review)


After 10 months of marital bliss, Jessica Faraday and Murphy Thornton are still discovering and adjusting to their life together. Settled in their new home, everything appears to be perfect…except in the middle of the night when, in the darkest shadows of her subconscious, a deep secret from Jessica’s past creeps to the surface to make her strike out at Murphy.

When investigative journalist Dallas Walker tells the couple about her latest case, known as the Pine Bridge Massacre, they realize Jessica may have witnessed the murder of a family while visiting family at the winery near-by, and suppressed the memory.

Determined to uncover the truth and find justice for the murder victims, Jessica and Murphy return to the scene of the crime with Dallas Walker, a spunky bull-headed Texan. Can this family reunion bring closure for a community touched by tragedy or will this prickly get-together bring an end to the Thorny Rose couple?

    Not only is the character a manipulator but the author is also a master manipulator of the plot, keeping the listener hooked with all the twist and turns the story takes and I just loved it. This is book two in the series and although you don’t need to listen or read the books in order, I would recommend that what ever order you listen to them in that you just listen to them, they are that good. This book focuses more on Jessica’s family history but that doesn’t mean the author skimps on the action or humour. This book doesn’t contain as many of the extended family as the first book (characters from some of the authors others series, which are worth a listen also) but with so much going on and Jessica and Murphy’s character development they weren’t really missed. The characters that did make it were wonderful and had me laughing out loud, such as the couch potato dog, the computer butler and the Texan journalist. The mystery was interesting and took a lot of different directions that I was kept guessing what what was going to happen next throughout the whole book. This author has definitely jumped up to if not the top then very close to my favourite author list.
    Jessica perfect life is distributed by nightmares that have her lashing out and hitting her husband while she is sleeping. Did she witness something during her childhood that she is unconsciously trying to remember? Dallas investigative reporter new story has the three of them returning to her childhood memories and her father’s adopted family home. A family was brutally wiped out one summer evening and as Jessica memories come back to her, she realises her ten year old self was a witness along with her cousins. The more she learns the more she wonders did she ever really knew the people she called family. With Murphy and Dallas by her side can they uncover the hidden secret of what really happened that night?
    I liked the narrator and thought he really help to bring the characters to life in my mind, I especially liked the void he used to voice the computer butler.
