Redgrave Murders Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway

Thursday, July 11, 2019

Loss is inevitable, as Evie Hampton knows all too well. But despite losing her mother to cancer and her older brother to a war, she knows she's one of the lucky ones. After all, she still has her father, a distinguished professor of medieval history. And she has Gary Redhawk, the man she loves despite the emotional scars he carries from the Second World War--and despite her father's opposition to their relationship.

When Evie's car suddenly careens off the road, she chalks it up to poor maintenance or sheer bad luck making another appearance in her life. Little does she know a host of hardships is just beginning--the car was her father's, and the brake lines were deliberately cut. Someone wants them dead--but why? All fingers point to Gary, a man with a troubled past and no solid alibi, but Evie is unwilling to believe he's involved. Determined to uncover the truth, she begins to piece together a startling picture of deception and vice. But as she closes in on the truth, it is clear that someone is determined to silence her--and the next attempt on her life may be a deadly success.

On the cover of the novel, The Redgrave Murders, it says "romantic suspense." To me, this book was more a murder mystery, a classic whodunnit, with some romantic drama splashed in. Evie and Gary try work on their relationship and piece together who committed murder and why. Gary is blamed for the murder by local authorities and several of the people in the town are biased against him based on his race and culture. The suspect list is long and several people have a motive. The writing style reminded me of a classic mystery style novel or a classic mystery movie. I was on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. I loved how it was well-written and there was historical events mentioned. I hope Sowards continues to write mysteries. There is a lot of violence mentioned in the novel, but the author isn't descriptive enough to make it graphic. I would also suggest reading the author's notes in the back of the book. They were interesting to read and learn more about the time period. To learn more about The Redgrave Murders, click here.
