Content Rating: PG-13 – (Lauren Carr’s books are murder mysteries, so there are murders involved. Occasionally, a murder will happen on stage. There is sexual content, but always behind closed doors. Some mild swearing (a hell or a damn few and far between). No F-bombs!


Book Description:

What started out as the worst day of Mac Faraday’s life would end up being a new beginning. After a messy divorce hearing, the last person that Mac wanted to see was another lawyer. Yet, this lawyer wore the expression of a child bursting to tell his secret. This confidence would reveal Mac as heir to undreamed of fortunes, and lead him to the birthplace of America’s Queen of Mystery and an investigation that will unfold like one of her famous mystery novels.

Soon after she moves to Deep Creek Lake, Maryland, Katrina Singleton learns that life in an exclusive community is not all good. For some unknown reason, a strange man calling himself “Pay Back” begins stalking her. When Katrina is found strangled all evidence points to her terrorist, who is nowhere to be found.

Three months later, the file on her murder is still open when Mac Faraday, sole heir to his unknown birth mother’s home and fortune, moves into the estate next door. Little does he know as he drives up to Spencer Manor that he is driving into a closed gate community that is hiding more suspicious deaths than his DC workload as a homicide detective. With the help of his late mother’s journal, this retired cop puts all his detective skills to work to pick up where the local investigators have left off to follow the clues to Katrina’s executor.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK


In this book, It’s Murder, My Son, author Lauren Carr introduces readers to the Mac Faraday Mysteries. Mac comes to the town of Spencer to claim the inheritance left to him by his mother. Immediately he finds out about the tragic murder of one of the town of Spencer’s wealthiest Katrina Singleton and of course being an investigator, he can’t stand by and not get involved in solving this murder.

I love suspense stories so I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Mac is an interesting man, full of surprises and I enjoyed following his investigation throughout the book. There are many other characters, expertly crafted by Ms. Carr, and I enjoyed watching them develop throughout the story as well. Of course there are always the characters you don’t like, but the story wouldn’t be the same without them, right? My favorite character by far has to be the furry friend, the adorable and very smart Gnarly. Watching this famous dog act out his character was so fun and entertaining and I can’t wait to read more books with this special furry friend.

Over all this is a very good read. There are many twists and turns that kept me biting my nails as I read, because I couldn’t figure out whodunnit! And author Lauren Carr does and fantastic job of weaving it all together to come up with a very nice and surprising ending. This one is a five star for me!
