Detective Brianna “Bree” Morris and her partner and ex-lover Steven Kemp are back. This time they are thrown head first into a gruesome homicide that brings forth as many secrets as it does clues.
Brianna’s psychiatrist, Dr. Nadia Hollister is stabbed to death in her upstairs bathroom. Brianna, who is at Nadia’s while the murder happens, is the only witness. Unfortunately she was knocked unconscious by the killer and only has the memory of the killer’s scent to go on.
Brianna and Steven sign on to help Homicide Detective Jayce Matthews solve the case. With Nadia’s journals as her guide, Bree learns that Nadia was keeping a devastating secret that has something to do with her adopted daughter. The renowned doctor was not whom she seemed to be and her secret may not have only got her killed but could ruin the foundation of her entire family.
The police hunt for suspects but Nadia’s secret could wreck the lives of many, all who have motive to kill her.
The deeper Brianna and Steven dig into Nadia’s past; the more they question whether Nadia was the true victim after all.
This thriller starts off with a BANG! Stacy you have officially become one of my favorite authors! I can’t wait to read what you have for us next! (Readers Paradise Book Club)
I read The Season of Sin in less than 24 hours. I was held captive from page one until the very end. When I thought I knew who it was, I learned later on I was wrong. Stacy-Deanne is a really great mystery writer. She does not make it easy to figure out who did the crime at first glance, but the clues are all there. Readers of whodunits and mystery with a hint of romance in the background will enjoy The Season of Sin. (Jennifer Coissiere Words Mosaic Review)
This book had me on edge while trying to figure out who was behind the murder. This book provides drama, excitement and is definitely entertaining. I am hoping the author is planning the next Detective Brianna Morris novel because I am hooked on this character. I recommend this book to others. (Teresa Beasley APOOO BookClub)
