Welcome to my stop on the blog tours The Lake Templeton Murders by HS Burney. Thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the tour invite. Read on for more info and my review, and let me know what you think in the comments.
A body washes up on the shores of Lake Templeton, a small town on the coast of Vancouver Island. Sharon Reese, the victim, was a dedicated government employee. Everyone liked her, but no one knew much about her. Was she hiding something? Maybe a questionable past riddled with scandal. And did it lead to her plunge to death, in a drunken stupor, off the dock outside her secluded lakefront lodge?
Was it an accident? A suicide? Or cold-blooded murder? Private Investigator, Fati Rizvi, is determined to find out.
Fati arrives in Lake Templeton to find secrets that run as deep as the City’s sewers. Everyone is hiding something and nothing is as it seems. A cult escapee. A corrupt politician. A struggling airline. A multi-million dollar public-private project to revitalize the Lake Templeton waterfront. How are they all connected?
As Fati valiantly unravels the knots, another body is found on the shore. Is it the same killer? And can Fati stop them before they strike again?
The Lake Templeton Murders by HS Burney is an excellent murder mystery that had me guessing til the end. HS Burney spins quite a web of mystery and even when I thought I knew, I second guessed because the mystery was very well written!
The plot was excellent. There were a few scenes that dragged a little because of extra detail, but overall, the story was fast-paced and well written. I enjoyed the writing and as I said earlier, the twists and turns.
Fatzi is an great main character. She was east to connect with because while she was quick witted and smart, she was also real, and made real decisions. Great characters make books great, and this is where The Lake Templeton Murders really shined.
Overall, this was entertaining, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to read it. Check it out!
