Take your time and give Trial by Twelve a chance. Each chapter begins with an anonymous letter written by a father to his estranged child. Once you get into it the pages will fly by. Since I have not read the first book in Heather Day Gilbert’s A Murder in the Mountain series I’m assuming the main character, Tess is introduced there. She will entertain you and her family is delightful. One problem though or actually quite a few keep her from her ideal life. She works part time at a high end spa where bones are discovered while an outdoor pool is being installed. She gets pulled into the investigation when more than one human’s bones are found. A super sleuth, Detective Tucker is on the case and thinks Tess can help him while she keeps an eye on the spa staff. Her attorney husband is less enthusiastic over her involvement. He’s on his way up the ladder and needs her by his side. This book will entertain, provide suspense, and even give some humor.
I recommend Trial by Twelve. It’s a great summer read or anytime you want a vacation from your life.
I received a copy of Heather Day Gilbert’s book through The Book Club Network for my honest review which I have given.
