A fast-paced murder mystery, thriller - fiction novel, enveloped in a romance: A man on the run and a distraught woman are both escaping very different unjust circumstances. Fate brings the pair together - ironically the injustices they suffer conclude in the same dramatic final twist!
Grady Harp's review: ‘I’m so grateful for your help, you have saved my life’ – mysterious curtain raiser! Reviewed in the United States on September 29, 2020 (Amazon). British author Glenis Kellet has life experiences in managing thoroughbred horses, diary and crop farming, creating (and marketing) a coarse fishery, dealing with the financial markets, and now returns to her childhood passion for writing. Her books to date – FAITH IN LOVE, THE VILLAGE NARCISSIST, and FALSELY ACCUSED OF THE UNTHINKABLE. Experiencing the latest book by an author and then exploring earlier their earlier works provides a fine window into talent. THE VILLAGE NARCISSIST was a splendid introduction to Glenis’ ability to spin a fine mystery, and now reading an earlier work further proves that her talent is consistent. She manages to blend mystery with enough lighthearted humor to keep her story balanced. This novel opens with a suspenseful introduction of her characters: “I pity anyone out in this weather. The blizzard looks like it’s set for the rest of the day!” Jean exclaimed to her elderly mother, Martha. The fire was aglow, keeping them both warm in their cozy lounge. The snow was blowing horizontally outdoors, hitting the single paned windows and piling up on the ledges. It was difficult to see outside. ‘Bang…bang…bang.’ Someone was frantically banging at the back door. “Whoever could that be?” Jean asked, hurrying to the door and opening it. “Good grief, what are you doing in weather like this Come in quickly, you’ll freeze to death outside.” The grey-haired woman grabbed the man’s arm and pulled him into the kitchen. “Sit yourself down, I’ll get some towels and blankets.” Jean hurried to gather the items….The man tried to smile, but his face was frozen. He was so grateful to her; he would have died outside if he had not found this remote place. His escape from prison had nearly cost him his life…’ A fine overture to this zesty mystery! The plot is well paced and full of unexpected twists that encourage the reader to untangle. Respecting the suspense pleasure of reading, the plot line provided on the book’s back cover is merely hinted – ‘An escaped prisoner encounters horrendous struggles – a traumatized woman overturns his life completely – will he ever prove his innocence or is he in fact guilty: Astonishing revelations are unveiled about who he is!’ Written in a most engaging style, this fine novel by Glenis Kellet places her solidly in the arena of important contemporary authors. Very highly recommended. Grady Harp, September 20 I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book
