Hand of Fate novel review

I have started a new section to my Blog where I will review books of interest to me, and hopefully to you also. I will be completely honest with my reviews and let you know what I like and do not like. These books will vary in gendre, and still have relevance to my site.

My first review is the second of two ‘triple threat’ novels by these co-authors.

‘Hand of Fate’ by Lis Wiehl and April Henry is a mystery novel that is certain to delight! This ‘whodunit’ setting is Portland, Oregon and centers around the mysterious death of blunt and outspoken radio talk show host, Jim Fate.

Three long-time friends since grade-school find their lives intertwined in their attempt to solve this dramatic ‘on air’ death. These women approach the crime as a TV Crime Reporter (Cassidy), a Federal Prosecutor (Allison), and a FBI Special Agent (Nicole).

Although the first few chapters jumped around somewhat, I was quickly drawn into their lives through the easy writing style, and found the Hand of Fate hard to put down. By the end of the novel, I felt I knew each woman personally as a friend.

From the outset, I believed that I knew who killed Jim Fate, but was lead to other worthy suspects, then surprised by the actual killer revelation.

This is a novel that I would highly recommend for the writing style, character development, and overall entertaining reading.
