We love to read here (hence lots of book reviews on here LOL). That being said you have to check out the new Liv Bergen Mystery Series! If you like mystery, you will LOVE these books. They both were really good and keep you guessing right to the end! The clues lead you one way and yet the killer is usually not who you think!
In the Belly of Jonah is a fast-paced mystery with a likable protagonist and an intricately woven narrative brimming with bizarre yet believable twists. The first in a series, the book expertly lays the groundwork for Liv Bergen, amateur sleuth, and her love interest, FBI Agent Streeter Pierce.
Liv becomes involved in the investigation of the murder of Jill Brannigan, a summer intern at the limestone mine Liv manages near Fort Collins, Colorado (a breathtaking setting that unwittingly becomes an accessory to crime). In doing so, she inadvertently puts her friends, her family, and herself at risk of being swallowed in the belly of a madman bloated with perverse appetites for women, surrealistic art, and renown.
In Lots Return to Sodom, Liv Bergen's family's hometown of Sturgis, South Dakota, is quickly becoming the Sodom of the Black Hills during the dog days of summer as it hosts the infamous rally of grizzled hard-core motorcycle bikers half a million of them. Crime comes too close for comfort when Liv must solve the mystery of a beautiful young townie to clear her brother's name. Liv witnesses the vile death of another young woman, and during her investigation of both crimes she attracts the uninvited attentions of the menacing leader of Lucifer's Lot the baddest of the bad biker gangs. Her quick wit and pragmatic thinking are all that stands between her and certain elimination. FBI agent Streeter Pierce is back on the trail, working undercover to find the murderer and a shadow criminal called the Crooked Man. When he and Liv cross paths, sparks are flying, literally.
Fans of the amateur sleuth's adventures will find this second book in the Liv Bergen series the sequel to In the Belly of Jonah an even deeper mystery, with greater consequences for their heroine. It also nice to see woman who isn't a victim in a mystery novel.
