SCENE OF THE CRIME
The Grant familyâ€™s exclusive Sonoma spa is a place for rest and relaxationâ€”not murder! Then Naomi Grant finds her client Jessica Ortiz bleeding to death in her massage room, and everything falls apart. The salonâ€™s reputation is at stakeâ€¦and so is Naomiâ€™s freedom when she discovers that she is one of the main suspects! Her only solace is found with the other suspectâ€”Dr. Devon Knightley, the victimâ€™s ex-husband. But Devon is hiding secrets of his own. When they come to light, where can Naomi turnâ€¦and whom can she trust?
Camy comes back with a new book, this time not with sushi but with a spa, a new spa owner, a handsome doctor and a murder! Itâ€™s no secret that I love Camyâ€™s books (see the reviews here, here and here) and having a chance to read this book is really exciting. :D
In this book, Naomi is taking over their family spa, and is not expecting it to be an easy job, but she also never expected that she would have to deal with the murder of her client! Naomi wonders what God has in store for her and if he really wanted her to be where she was. Not only that, but thereâ€™s also handsome Dr. Devon Knightley who always seems to be around ever since the murderâ€¦and itâ€™s making Naomi not so comfortable because of her crush on Devon. I think Naomi definitely wouldnâ€™t mind giving away wedding invitations with their names on it, but not at this time, when theyâ€™re both accused of murder!
This is a fun and quick read â€” just the right amount of mystery, suspense and dead bodies and it kept me hanging until the end. I was actually quite surprised to find out who the culprit was, and kind of sad to know why she did all those things. Naomi is a strong protagonist though, and I found myself rooting for her all through out the novel. The faith aspect is nicely tied in as well, and it never felt like it was too preachy â€” everything felt natural.
Another great book by Camy! :D
