The Big Thrill Recommends: FATAL WITNESS By Patricia Bradley

Recommendation by Tracey Devlyn

Book Cover Image: Fatal WitnessUSA Today bestselling author Patricia Bradley returns to the Cumberland Plateau in this second installment of her popular Pearl River inspirational romantic suspense series. Although part of a series, the novel reads well as a standalone.

In FATAL WITNESS, pottery artist Dani Bennett returns to Pearl Springs after fleeing with her uncle two-and-a-half decades ago. She has no memory of the nine years she spent in Tennessee. But once she meets old friends and her crime-sleuthing grandmother, Mae Richmond, flashes of her past return. Including some details about the night her parents were murdered.

Word of Dani’s homecoming whips through the small town, and she soon finds herself fighting not only to remember but to stay alive.

Veteran K-9 officer Mark Lassiter and his fearless partner, Gem, work around the clock to keep Dani safe. Together, Dani and Mark sort through the clues to the 25-year-old cold case. But her parents’ killer is busy burying loose ends—and Dani’s next.

Bradley did a wonderful job teasing out the clues through Dani’s memories and Mark’s investigative skills. The author found an enjoyable balance between propulsive suspense, sweet romance, and inspirational messages. FATAL WITNESS will also find a home with anyone who loves dogs, small-town dynamics, and wilderness backdrops.

Recommended reading accessories: A creaky porch swing, a warm cuppa, and a wet-nosed companion.
