My Review for The Elder:
So this book is a murder mystery with a love story wrapped in. This booked reminded me of Tami Hoag’s writing.
With a “beloved” member of the community being murdered and having a hidden life. The cops have very little to go on and the family doesn’t seem to want to help or know anything.
Detective Arabella Matthews is a single mother and head detective in this town. She is a no-nonsense kind of person. She has no time for love or peoples crap. When she and her partner Logan are called into the King lawyer office to find the senior King murdered and the two sons the prime suspects.
Benton King is a lawyer at his fathers firm. Porter is the County Sheriff. There is also a sister Charlotte in the King family. As all the King family seems close none of them seem to know what is going on with their father.
Arabella and Benton decide to work together to find his fathers killer. While everyone tries to figure out what is going on, Arabella and Benton start having feelings for each other. But it is very subtle. And that is what I liked about this story. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.
Celia Aaron is a recovering attorney who loves romance and erotic fiction. Dark to light, angsty to funny, real to fantasy—if it’s hot and strikes her fancy, she writes it. Thanks for reading.
