I absolutely love a murder mystery where the MC is suspected of the murder! I enjoy the sleuthing skills that are used to (hopefully) clear their name!
Lucy lives with her aging mother who is suffering from a terminal illness. While Lucy spends her days taking care of her mother, her brother spends his days as a rockstar. When a sinkhole reveals the skeleton of an old band member, Lucy becomes the prime suspect!
I really enjoyed this story. It was filled with twists and tricks to have the reader completely unsure of what had happened and what would happen! I had ideas of what had happened, but I couldn’t be sure, and kept changing my ideas! I liked the mystery, and I would definitely recommend this one for whodunnit readers!

She publishes her thrillers in a Large Print dyslexia-friendly edition as well as standard paperback and ebook versions. (You can also adjust the font on your electronic device to suit your needs.)
A member of the Alliance of Independent Authors, Helen likes speaking to book groups, business networks and social circles.
