Book Tour Hosted by Silver Dagger Book Tours

Thank you to Silver Dagger Tours and Christa Nardi for the gifted copy of A New Place, Another Murder. This book was provided to me for an honest review and all opinions are my own.

Synopsis

Meet Sheridan. She has pretty much every thing she has every wish for. She has recently settled into her new home in Appomattox with her husband Brett and his daughter, but longs for something to help keep her busy. That is, until Maddie, her stepdaughter, and her friend are framed for theft and murder. While this is not quite the distraction she had in mind, Sheridan will do anything she can to prove their innocence. Will the truth come out before the person calling the shots takes Sheridan and Maddie out of the picture?

Review

I was really looking forward to reading this book, as I love a good mystery as much as the next person; however, this book just didn’t live up to my expectations. While the synopsis and the over all story were good, I felt like the build up of this story was really slow for my tastes. It took a long time to learn all the information related to the murder, and for me, the way the information was presented was a bit on the confusing side. I did love the characters that were created and I enjoyed the relationships between the characters.

The one thing that bothered me just a little, was that I had never picked up a Christa Nardi book before, and it without a little back history on the characters, some of the information presented in this book was confusing to me. It took me a long time to figure out how all the characters and their backgrounds fit together. I would have wished for just a bit more information on Brett, his daughter, and their relationship with Sheridan as well as a little background on why she had left her previous teaching position. Although this book is the start of a new series, and you should be able to start a series without reading the author’s previous books, I felt that I should have read the author’s Cold Creek Series books first.
