The Murder of Grace Bryant

Suzanne Rossi delves into the past and risks the future in this fabulous mystery. Callie Bryant is such a strong and determined woman and I felt almost as invested as she was in finding out who killed her mother so many years ago. While her story is absolutely tragic and I was heartbroken for her I can truthfully say I never once felt sorry for her. This young woman did not need anyone's pity she just wanted and needed answers. I enjoyed the fact that while she didn't have every step figured out she was able to give her plans some thought and wing it when needed. So often reporters are portrayed as either villains or super heroes and yet Josh Hendricks was neither. He was simply a good man with a profession he is meant for. I'm a sucker for romance with my mystery so I enjoyed the relationship developing between these two. The possible suspects were intriguing and I loved seeing details revealed and layers peeled away. The fact that as a reader we learned things just as she did and had no insight into what happened in the past made for a thrilling ride. If you like your mysteries on the smart side this is a must read.

Years ago Callie Bryant's father was convicted of murdering her mother and while she was in the house that night she has no memory of the event. But she knows in her heart her father was innocent so she's come back home to prove it. Will she clear his name or become a victim?
