There’s nothing like coming to a blog tour late. A MONTH late, to be exact. I still don’t know what happened to the original email, but I can’t tell you how frustrated I was to find out I’d missed the tour for Fatal Deduction by Gayle Roper.
I’ve read several other books of Roper’s, and this one didn’t disappoint.
Libby Keating and her twin sister, Tori, are beneficiaries of a sizable inheritance left by their Aunt Stella. The catch? These feuding identical twins must share Aunt Stella’s home for six months. Libby, a mousy single mom to 13-year old Chloe, doesn’t condone Tori’s wild lifestyle. She knows that living with Tori will be a true test of her Christian faith.
Of course, it doesn’t help that on the first morning in the house, Libby literally stumbles across a dead body on the doorstep. The crossword puzzle he’s holding (with Tori’s name on it) only adds to the mystery.
As Libby seeks to find the truth behind the murder (and Tori’s possible involvement), she realizes she may be losing Chloe’s affections to Tori. She also meets a handsome history professor, Drew, who’s trying to put his own life back together. The characters search for clues to solve the tangible mystery before them, as well as the keys to spiritual fulfillment.
If you’re looking to read a Whodunit? with substance, Fatal Deduction is a good choice. And guess what? I’ve got two copies to give away. Just pop over to my blog and leave me a comment on the Fatal Deduction post. Winners will be announced on July 18th.
