I love finding new to me authors, and it’s such a pleasure to introduce Rolynn Anderson to you. Anderson’s novel, Lie Catchers, is one of suspense, mystery, and intrigue, and it caused me to stay up reading until the wee small hours. I don’t know about you, but for me the non-put-down-able-books are true treasures.
Several things grabbed me about this story. I liked the author’s non-linear style. She used journalistic articles to showcase an older crime and parallel a current crime in the same small town. I also admired the authenticity the author brought to the page. The third aspect was that of the main character and her incredible talent (no spoilers here, but I had recently watched a television show on this very topic.)
Now you’ll have to read the book to find out. ; )
Being of Scandinavian background, an avid boater, and an Alaskan adventurer, Anderson did an excellent job of pulling me into her story. There was just enough background to make the story, and that small town, leap to life. The quirkiness of the characters (all lovely flawed characters) had me rooting for some, and wanting justice done.
Definitely a 5* read!
And now I want to visit Alaska!
Here’s the blurb on Lie Catchers:
Two unsolved murders will tear apart an Alaska fishing town unless a writer and a government agent reveal their secret obsessions.
Treasury agent Parker Browne is working undercover in Petersburg, Alaska to investigate a money scam and a murder. His prime suspect, Liv Hanson, is a freelance writer struggling to save her family’s business. Free spirited, full of life, and with a talent for catching liars, she fascinates Parker.
Trying to prove she’s a legitimate writer who cares about Petersburg’s issues, Liv pens a series of newspaper articles about an old, unsolved murder. When her cold case ties in with Parker’s investigation, bullets start to fly.
Parker understands money trails, and Liv knows the town residents. But he gave up on love two years ago, and she trusts no one, especially with her carefully guarded secret. If they mesh their skills to find the killers, will they survive the fallout?
