Today it’s my stop on the blog tour for What She Saw by Diane Saxon. The cover pretty much drew me to this book. It’s pretty scary to see a house on fire on the cover, but is there more to this? Of course! Read on for the book blurb and what I thought.
Why does someone want the Lawrence family dead?
The Lawrence’s were the perfect family; successful, beautiful, and happy until one night their whole world was ripped apart.
Detective Sergeant Jenna Morgan is called to investigate the suspected arson attack and death of the Lawrence family at the charred remains of their stunning home, Kimble Hall. The case takes a sinister turn as the body count fails to tally. Suspecting that someone may have survived the inferno, DS Morgan and her team need to discover whether they have a witness, or someone far more dangerous.
Who set the fire? Who wanted this family extinguished beyond recognition. As the case progresses, DS Morgan realises she has a calculating, cold-blooded killer on her hands, and the race is on to track them down before they kill again.
What I Thought
What She Saw is the third book in the Detective Sergeant Jenna Morgan series, set in Shropshire. I haven’t read the first two books, but that didn’t matter, I soon got stuck in and found myself getting involved in Jenna Morgan’s world of policing and her personal life.
It’s very straight to the point as a crime thriller. It starts off at the scene of the crime and works backward. Gordon Lawrence has opened fire on his family in a fit of rage. But one family member has managed to escape – teenager Poppy. She feels she is to blame for her father’s rage and runs away scared.
There are some great action scenes and twists leading to an emotional ending. It’s well written with great character development, it teases you with tense moments. One crime thriller not to miss!
Where To Buy
Diane Saxon previously wrote romantic fiction for the US market but has now turned to writing psychological crime. Find Her Alive was her first novel in this genre and introduced series character DS Jemma Morgan. She is married to a retired policeman and lives in Shropshire.
