Title: Her Deadly Touch (Detective Josie Quinn #12)
Author: Lisa Regan
I decided to pick up up book 12 in the Josie Quinn series even though I only read book 10 in the series. I might have found an author I need to go back and start the series from the beginning.
Lisa Regan weaves a tale of sorrow, murder, suspense that mystery loves will not be able to put down. The story moves at a slow pace at first but soon picks up quickly engaging the readers until every last detail is read.
Thank you to Netgalley for a advance copy of Lisa Regan Her Deadly Touch.
The woman is kneeling at a gravestone, her hair blowing in the breeze, a bunch of wilting yellow daffodils on the grass beside her. Her eyes are fixed on the ground and her mouth is parted in a silent prayer. But the wax dripping from her cold blue lips means it’s already too late to save her…
On her first day back with the Denton PD after a major trauma, Detective Josie Quinn is on the hunt for a missing woman, Krystal Duncan, the mother of one of five children killed in a devastating school bus crash. Hours later, Josie finds Krystal’s body beside her daughter’s grave, her lips sealed together forever with wax.
Forensics match the wax to one of the candles lit in memory of the sweet little souls who died, giving Josie her first lead to a support group made up of the parents who lost children in the crash. Painstakingly dissecting the lives of these grieving couples, it’s clear to Josie that each of them is hiding something about the day of the accident—but whose secret is worth killing for?
