Love and Mystery in the 6-oh-3 – Book 2
Who shot Lucy Watson’s estranged brother, the popular high school teacher who brought snacks for the staff and volunteered to help troubled students? When Lucy Watson returns to her hometown in New Hampshire to bury her brother, she learns law enforcement is looking into several suspects. But soon the search for the killer grows intensely personal for Lucy. The police discover a fierce argument occurred the day of the murder between Lucy’s brother and his best friend Liam McAllister, Lucy’s first love. The cops shift their focus to Liam. Determined to get justice, Lucy becomes involved in the mystery and must choose to put her faith in Liam one last time, or face the truth; she is in love with her brother’s murderer.

When former bad boy Liam McAllister runs into Lucy Watson, he feels the familiar hunger and tug of attraction that they once shared. Since their breakup five years ago, he’s regretted ending their relationship and dreams of winning her back. Now is his chance. He invites her to his bar and grill to show he’s a reformed, self-made businessman. But his plan comes apart. The bank threatens foreclosure on his establishment, and he falls under suspicion for the death of his pal and Lucy’s brother. Liam struggles to overcome his personal challenges while proving he’s changed. Can he convince Lucy to trust him, or is it too late for a second shot at love?

EXCERPT

She wandered into the hall and glanced into a paneled den with a large-screen TV mounted on the wall. The leather furniture added to the masculine feel. A rawhide bone lay beside the recliner. Too homey.

She whirled around and slowed at the sight of the entryway. Fragments of Sullivan’s words played in her mind. In the front hall. Answered the door. Shot.

Her stomach clenched tight. Liam came up behind her as they inched forward. She halted. Sections of the wooden plank floor were stained rust-colored. Ryan’s blood. Lightness whirled in her head. Her legs threatened to fold under her.

Brown splatters streaked the white walls.

She stumbled back against Liam. He wrapped his arm around her waist to support her and pointed. Her gaze ran over the trail of spatter near the door.

There, pennies were stuck above the knob. It took a few seconds to realize the coins had been grouped to form letters that spelled: CHEAT.

MY REVIEW
The Devil Wore SneakersThe Devil Wore Sneakers by Nora LeDuc
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Devil Wore Sneakers is a fast paced and gripping mystery.
We have a murder, a coming home girl, a sexy and suspect ex, a serial killer, a lot of suspects and a small town full of interesting characters.
The plot is well-developed, full of twists and turns and complex characters, two likeable main characters and a couple of crazy ones and a great romance. It's obvious that the Author knows how to write a powerful mystery that had me guessing all through pages!
This is a solid 5 star book.
I highly recommend this book to all type of readers.

  5. Hi Mai, Good question. In fact I ended up going to PT for my back. So it shows the importance of being fit. He told me the most important thing to do is to walk. Although my exercises helped a lot!! Do you exercise? Many people love it.

    1. Thanks, Kay, I try to have a balance between the two because I love a good mystery and there's nothing like a romance.
