The Fallen Body (book review)

About the book:

Stone Patrick

Taylour Dixxon, a modern day small-town lawyer in the beautiful hill country of Central Texas, befriends Sarah Cockrell Baines, a New Jersey socialite and millionairess. As their friendship begins, Sarah is arrested for the murder of her husband and is put into jail. When Taylour volunteers to defend Sarah, she has no idea that her struggling solo practice in the sleepy, fictional, small town of Marlinsville, Texas, will be turned upside down.

From a lovable, adolescent nephew who moves in with her, to a hired assassin who is determined to hide the truth, and a handsome Texas Ranger who becomes the object of affection in a love triangle between the two friends, Taylour’s life will never be the same.

My review:

I thought the mystery was pretty well done.  I liked how you sort of knew what happened through the whole book... you just weren't sure why and exactly how or who was behind it.

There were a few things that were left hanging... or unanswered.  I would have liked to have known what actually happened to Betty, Taylour's office manager.  Was Sarah's husband having an affair before he was killed?

The story took a few detours and had a couple of inconsistencies... but they weren't too distracting and I'm assuming some of it was just used for characters building and maybe to use in future books (since this is listed as book 1 in the Taylour Dixxon series).

I did liked the little twist at the end.  I'm always a sucker for a twist.
