Review: The Fallen Angels Book Club by R. Franklin James
Author: R. Franklin James
Publisher: Camel Press
Format: E Book
Source: Partners In Crime
The Fallen Angels Book Club has only two requirements: the members must love books and have a white-collar criminal record. Hollis Morgan fits the bill. Left holding the bag in an insurance fraud scheme concocted by her now ex-husband, she served her time and is trying to rebuild her life. All she wants is for the court to pardon her conviction so she can return to law school.
After one of her fellow members is murdered in a scenario straight out of a club selection, Hollis is once again the subject of police scrutiny. Refusing to get stuck with another bad rap, she sets out to investigate her fellow club members. Is one of them really blackmailing the others? As a second member dies in yet another book-inspired murder, Hollis realizes that time is running out. Everything rides on her finding the killer–not just her career aspirations. She must identify the killer before she herself becomes the next victim. Everyone is convinced she knows more than she lets on. But what is it, exactly, that is she supposed to know?
The Fallen Angels Book Club is the first book in an exciting new mystery series featuring amateur sleuth Hollis Morgan.
I received this book for a fair and honest review. This book is book 1 in a series.
This book had a mini mystery storyline within the main one. Hollis was trying to help out some elderly residents in a nursing home. She was able to figure that mystery out eventually though.
The main mystery however was the murders of two book club members. For me, it was a real twist who the murder was. I didn’t see that one coming at all.
Hollis sure hasn’t had an easy life. She was trying to get her life back and on the right track when these murders happened. She should of just let the police do their job and keep her nose clean but her personality wouldn’t allow for that.
I highly enjoyed this book and will be looking for the other books in the series when they come available.
