Rating: 4/5


Deputy Coroner Zoe Chamber received an incident report, a farm accident. She found a male body hanging from a rope, was it a suicide? In the beginning it seemed so, he had lung cancer, but after finding a letter in his belongings addressed to Kimberly, Zoe's mother, she started having questions about her father's car accident 27 years ago.
The police chief department, Pete Adams was not sure whether it was an easy case or not, specially after another attempted murder. He had to deal with a broken feet, his father who was not who he was in the past and some strong feelings for Zoe Chambers.

""Hi Paulette. Is Franklin available?" "He's in his office." The woman smiled at Harry. "Is this business? We have a wonderful preplanning program". Zoe choked, sneaking a glance at Harry. "Not that kind of business. This is Harry Adams. Chief Adam's dad." Paulette took his hand. "Lovely to meet you. I could give you a brochure about our services if you're interested." Harry scowled at her. "No thanks." Zoe bustled him down the hall before Franklin's secretary could launch further into her sales pitch. "Do I like I'm ready to kick the bucket?" Harry whispered. "Not at all. Business must be slow." "I can't imagine why. People are dyin' to get into places like this.""

Starting a saga on the second book is not always easy, you may miss some important information about the characters or the case. In this second book, the Zoe Chambers Mystery Series you could understand all the reactions of the principal characters, and you wonder what will be next! You will like to walk in the neighbourhood, tell Zoe that having her mother at home for her holidays is not the best for her health; help them in their farms, but not before they discover what is happening!
You will love this mystery book, it has everything; dead, bullets, missing persons, humour and a little bit of love! ;)

Prime Deception by Carys Jones

Prime Deception by Carys Jones
Genre: Mystery, Suspense, Romance
Source: NetGalley
Rating: 3/5

 
The suicide of a 22 years old woman is not big news, unless she had an affair with the Deputy Prime Minister, Charles Lloyd. Charles doesn't know how to face his job after ending the affair with her intern Lorna, but after her suicide, everything seems more tedious and unbearable for him.
After the appearance of Lorna's twin sister, Laurie, he will have to face that, perhaps, Lorna didn't commit suicide, that maybe she was murdered...

"Heavy is the head which wears the crown,' his mother had said to him warningly when he had told her of his decision to accept the position of Deputy Prime Minister. It was a rare moment when she had spoken her mind to him. Usually, she kept herself in the background when it came to these sorts of decisions, leaving the men to plan out the future of the family. 'I'm not trying to be a king, mother,' Charles had joked. 'You know what I mean,' she had said stubbornly, her always quiet voice till barely above a whisper. 'I just don't want you to end up unhappy.'"

Introduce yourself in a world where everything is based on appearances, making something for pleasure is not allowed and least of all, is falling in love with a much younger intern.
In this book you will feel the lost of Lorna from two different perspectives, Laurie and Charles.
Laurie cannot understand why her twin sister killed herself, as a consequence she stops talking to her family and moves to London to investigate. She will have to go through some really tough moments to understand the last months of her sister's life...
Charles just stops living with the suicide notice, cannot eat or concentrate in his job. However, with Laurie's obstinacy to know what had happened to Lorna, he will have to take some really difficult decisions, maybe changing his life forever.
What would you do to maintain your status?
