Her Last Letter (book review)

Written by Nancy C. Johnson.

I think I actually "purchased" Her Last Letter because it was on Amazon's list of free Kindle books.  (It's $.99 now).  I'm actually very glad I downloaded it.  I haven't read a suspense or mystery in a very long time... and it might be enough to get me more interested in finding some better ones (and away from vampires and fairies? maybe? not?)

Back Cover Summary...

In the Colorado mountain town of Glenwood Springs, not far from Aspen, artist/photographer Gwyn Sanders discovers a cryptic letter her sister Kelly left behind.  The victim of a deadly hit and run, Kelly reveals she was sexually involved with her sister’s boyfriend and is scared for her life. Both Gwyn and her remaining sister Linda have since married their boyfriends, so either of their husbands could be guilty of murder. The sisters received a large inheritance before meeting these men, and know little of either man’s background. Worse, both Gwyn and Linda love their husbands deeply, but steps must be taken to find the truth. And the truth is complicated. Is it one of the two men, or another previous lover? Or none of them? Danger abounds and everyone is a suspect as Gwyn tries with the help of a gifted private detective to track a killer....

 

Mainly... this book is a murder mystery.  I think, for me, it succeeded at being just what it was supposed to be.  I was continually guessing throughout the book who the actual murderer was.  Was it Gwyn's (the main character's) husband Trevor?  Her sister Linda's husband Wolfgang?  (seriously... his name was Wolfgang.) Was it Josh, Gwyn's old ex-boyfriend? Was it Craig... who the police think did it?

There were some exciting page-turner chapters... and there were some chapters that were dull and I found myself skimming.  Did I enjoy the book? Yes.  At times I couldn't put it down.  Would I go out of my way to get another book by Nancy C. Johnson? Probably not.
