NICUnurse’s Review of A Forgotten Murder by Jude Deveraux
For anyone who began reading romance in the 1980s as I did, Jude Deveraux is a well-known author. I cut my teeth on her romance books back in the day. And to be completely honest, it’s probably been years since I read one of her books because historical romance fell into a category for me that became the least of my favorites to read once I found Nora Roberts. So imagine my surprise at finding out that over the years that I wasn’t quite paying attention to what she was releasing, Ms. Deveraux has been writing more contemporary romance. And romantic suspense at that! A Forgotten Murder is book three in her Medlar Mystery series. I missed books one and two, but I’ll most definitely be going back to read them soon because while this book can be read as a standalone, I felt I was missing something where Jack and Kate are concerned. I’m a curious, sometimes nosey, person, so I have to know what I’m missing!
A Forgotten Murder was very much, at least in my head, like reading a modern-day telling of Clue. There’s a murder to solve and too many options for the who, the what, and the where. This murder happens to be a twenty-year-old murder that this trio of amateur sleuths happens upon when they are really hoping for a vacation from everything, including sleuthing. With some old fashioned detective work, and some rather unorthodox methods, as well, Sara, Kate, and Jack strive to figure out more than one whodunit.
NICUnurse’s Rating: It goes without saying that this author is a master storyteller. Her career speaks for itself. And I’m a huge romantic suspense/suspense fan, so combining those two factors had me fairly giddy as I began reading this story. With more twists and turns than a Colorado mountain road, this book had me turning the pages and not wanting to put it down until the very end. Needless to say, I’m still a big fan of Jude Deveraux’s writing!
I give A Forgotten Murder by Jude Deveraux 5 out of 5 propellers!
