Dangerous Deeds

The Westport Mysteries, #1

In "Dangerous Deeds" the author starts the story off by having the main character Lizzie describe herself. It was great to have a visual of the storyteller right from the start. The story flows along pretty good. A mystery gets added in with several things going on, leaving one subject and going back into another subject. Beth Prentice carries the reader along through the book and it ends on a good note. Ms. Prentice described the surroundings and the characters as well as the emotions of the characters very well. She made me want to meet and hang out with these characters.

I did feel like the romance could have been speeded up a little quicker. I'm calling this book a cozy read.

The main thing I founded odd was in almost every chapter Lizzie took a shower. She mentioned showering all the time, so much that you notice.

*PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED UNDER THE TITLE It Started With A House*

Meet Lizzie. She’s 31 and having a premature mid-life crisis. So, she bought a lonely, run down old house that pulled on her heartstrings.

But with the purchase Lizzie gets more than she bargained for. She didn’t expect the engagement ring and letters of forbidden love hidden under the attic floorboards. She didn’t expect the lazy cat, or the drop dead gorgeous handyman. And she definitely didn’t expect the stalker.

As the renovation begins and the house starts to slowly return to its former glory, the letters dog her dreams. Why was the writer forced to turn away from his love? Why was their love forbidden? And why was this all hidden under the floorboards?

Filled with a drive to reunite the ring with its rightful owner, Lizzie engages the help of her new handyman, her crazy family and her sex crazed Grandma, and sets on a journey of lost love, heartache, and public damnation.

But can Lizzie restore the house to its former glory, and find who it all once belonged to before her stalker catches up with her? Or will she lose everything...including her life?
