My Review
Body of Crime by Jennifer Chase was a well written mystery filled with twists and turns that kept every new plot element a surprise. I enjoyed trying to figure out the mystery for myself alongside Dr. Chip Palmer and Inspector Kate Rawlins. Inspector Kate Rawlins was my favorite character because I felt like I share some similar personality traits with her. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I hope the author decides to write more mystery novels/
