Phoebe and Mason get their own story in Southwest of Love and Murder.
The book’s strength is in its characters and descriptions… The setting was a character in itself. I loved the town! The author really made it come to life, not stinting on details (but not boring the reader either)… the writing kept me turning pages and I never once thought about setting it down.
I give this book a Loved It rating. The Art of Love and Murder is the perfect summer read to grab while the weather is hot. Brenda Whiteside ropes you in and will have you not wanting to move from your spot until you finish every last page.
Highly recommended. The Art of Love and Murder is full of strong, believable characters and a gripping suspenseful plotline. It was really easy to visualise the events as the setting description was fantastically detailed.
I liked this story a lot. The chemistry between the two is sizzling, another great read from Brenda Whiteside.
The Art of Love and Murder is full of strong, believable characters and a gripping suspenseful plotline. Highly recommended for anyone who likes romance mixed with intrigue.
