UNREVEALED by Laurel Dewey
In UNREVEALED, Dewey gives us four indelible portraits of Jane Perry:
ANONYMOUS: One of Jane’s first AA meetings leads her to an encounter with a woman in need of her detection skills…and a secret she never expected to uncover.
YOU CAN’T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER: Forced by her boss to speak at a high school career day, Jane meets a troubled boy and finds that his story is only the beginning of a much more revealing tale.
YOU’RE ONLY AS SICK AS YOUR SECRETS: An early-morning homicide call introduces Jane to a mystery as layered as it is unsuspected.
THINGS AREN’T ALWAYS WHAT THEY SEEM: Jane finds herself sharing a 2:00 am conversation at a downtown bar with an old acquaintance. Will the bloody night that proceeded this moment complicate Jane’s intentions?
I loved all four of the stories in Unrevealed. You wouldn’t think there could possibly be much going on in such short reads, but you’d be very very wrong. The author keeps a steady flow of twists, and clues are popping up all over, but again I never did figure out who did what. It would be impossible to say which one of the four was my favorite, I was blown away with each one!
I loved every second of reading and didn’t want to put it down. I love Jane Perry, she’s got a quick mind and not much gets past her. She has a keen sense of intuition and picks up on clues that most people wouldn’t give a second thought to.
The only down side to this books was the language. Jane definitely has a potty mouth…um no, it’s more like a sewer mouth.
Laurel Dewey is working on a new character named Betty Craven. She says Betty doesn’t solve crime or talk like a sailor, but that she’s tough. I know for sure that I’ll be waiting eagerly to meet Betty.
