2023 Challenge: A Book Bought At An Independent Bookstore: The Last Lie Told

 Book: The Last Lie Told

Author: Debra Webb

Pages: 315

This is my 27th read for the year

This is the story of Finley O'Sullivan.  A year ago her husband was murdered right in front of her, and she was beaten and raped by the murderers - not expected to survive.  A lawyer by trade, when she recovered and tried to go back to work, she has a psychological break and was let go from her position.  Her family friend, Jack, a private investigator hired her to work for him and help solve cases.  While Finley is determined to find the people who murdered her husband, Jack turns her onto an old case that has recently been reopened.  The Legard family's patriarch was murdered several years ago and the man who was convicted of that murder wants to provide new evidence.  Says he didn't do it.  Jack and Finley start the process of opening up the case and interviewing the family and friends and others involved to try and find ou what happened. One twist after another finally comes to a head when the real story of what happened to this family is brought to light.

This was a decent book.  I picked it up while shopping at our in town bookstore, and when I saw the main character was named Finley like my daughter, I decided to read it.  It isn't superbly written, but it kept me entertained.  Took me until about half the book to figure out the mystery.  I might be a little slower than others on that point.  It wrapped up decently, and I found out that this is a triology so Iwill be reading the next book for sure because loose ends were left at the end of this one.  

If you like a murder mystery - you might want to check this one out.
