Book Spotlight: On Tour With Lauren Carr

We are so happy to be a part of the spotlight tour for Lauren Carr’s latest novel, A Fine Year for Murder.  As book two in her newest series, The Thorny Rose series,  we’ve been anxiously awaiting its arrival.

Jessica Faraday and Murphy Thornton, the children of the featured characters in the Mac Faraday series and The Lovers in Crime series, were an instant hit when the two of them fell instantly in love.

Now married and living in Washington DC, they are still unable to avoid murder investigations, old and new.  Both are terrific characters with the challenges that are part of the DC environment, far different from the small town setting in Maryland.

Don’t miss Lauren’s books!  Complex mysteries, full of humor, and always a dog or cat winding through the mix.  Pure enjoyment any mystery lover will enjoy.

Watch for our review on part two of the tour.  That will be in March.  You will be pleased.

The Tour

Book Description:

After months of marital bliss, Jessica Faraday and Murphy Thornton are still discovering and adjusting to their life together. Settled in their new home, everything appears to be perfect … except in the middle of the night when, in darkest shadows of her subconscious, a deep secret from Jessica’s past creeps to the surface to make her strike out at Murphy.

When investigative journalist Dallas Walker tells the couple about her latest case, known as the Pine Bridge Massacre, they realize Jessica may have witnessed the murder of a family living near a winery owned by distant relatives she was visiting and suppressed the memory.

Determined to uncover the truth and find justice for the murder victims, Jessica and Murphy return to the scene of the crime with Dallas Walker, a spunky bull-headed Texan. Can this family reunion bring closure for a community touched by tragedy or will this prickly get-together bring an end to the Thorny Rose couple?
