Book Description:

Summer of Love & Murder

Joshua’s eldest son, Joshua “J.J.” Thornton Jr., has graduated at the top of his class from law school and returns home to spend the summer studying for the bar exam. However, to Joshua’s and Cameron’s shock and dismay, J.J. moves into the main house at Russell Ridge Farm, the largest dairy farm in the Ohio Valley, to rekindle a romance with Suellen Russell, a onetime leader of a rock group who’s twice his age. Quickly, they learn that she has been keeping a deep dark secret.

The move brings long-buried tensions between the father and son to the surface. But when a brutal killer strikes, the Lovers in Crime must set all differences aside to solve the crime before J.J. ends up in the cross hairs of a murderer.

Praise for Lauren Carr’s Mysteries:

“Lauren Carr could give Agatha Christie a run for her money!”
- Charlene Mabie-Gamble, Literary R&R

“As always, Lauren Carr brings an action-packed story that is almost impossible to put down. Her mystery plots have so many twists and turns that I didn’t know if I was coming or going. And the action just didn’t stop from the very beginning till the very end.” - Melina Mason, Melina’s Book Reviews

My Review
The first thing that made me interested in this book was the fact that it was written my Lauren Carr. Lauren has a gift for writing a great story while keeping it clean. I love how her books never have me cringing after a horrific scene or asking myself if that bit of adult content was needed because she never included things like that in her books.
This is my first time reading a book written by her without Gnarly in it and while I have to say I miss the furry guy this book did just fine without him. The characters were all well developed that I continued to learn more and more about as the book progressed. The plot line was well thought out and it moved as a nice steady pace that kept me on the edge of my chair. 

All in all I was very pleased with this book and I plan to keep reading books my Lauren Carr!
