Content Rating:  PG-13 (Lauren Carr's books are murder mysteries, so there are murders involved. Occasionally, a murder will happen on stage. There is sexual content, but always behind closed doors. Some mild swearing (a hell or a damn few and far between). No F-bombs!

Book Description:
Homicide Detective Cameron Gates learned long ago that there is no such thing as a typical murder case. Each mystery is special in its own right—especially for the family of the victim.The homicide of a successful executive, husband, and father seems open and shut when the murder weapon is found in his estranged son-in-law’s possession. The circumstantial evidence is so damning that when her step-son, J.J. Thornton, agrees to act as the defendant’s public defender, he assumes his first murder case will be a loss. Only the report of a missing husband proves that this case is not as open and shut as it seems. Strap on your seat belts for a wild ride in this mystery rooted in decades of deception that sprouts into murder.

My Review
The Root of Murder (A Lovers in Crime Mystery #4) by Lauren Carr was the fourth book in what was an amazing series. I was sad to get to this book as it meant I was done with reading the series. By the time I finished this book I was left hoping that Lauren Carr would decide to expand upon this series in the future!
I loved how JJ was back again in this book and the interaction between him and Cameron was great! I loved how the character interactions all felt realistic, emotional, and unscripted. This is the sort of book that would make for a great movie!
I also really liked how Lauren Carr avoided most of the more gory aspects involved in murder mysteries in not just this book, but all of the books in this series there were no gross moments that some books have nor any gory or horror language!
