Miranda Warning by Heather Day Gilbert

Miranda Warning by Heather Day Gilbert
Miranda Warning (A Murder in the Mountains, #1) by Heather Day Gilbert
Book Description: Child of the Appalachian mountains, Tess Spencer has experienced more than her share of heartache. The Glock-wielding, knife-carrying housewife knows how to survive whatever life throws at her.

But when an anonymous warning note shows up in her best friend Miranda’s mailbox—a note written in a dead woman’s handwriting—Tess quickly discovers that ghosts are alive and well in Buckneck, West Virginia. Hot on a cold trail, she must use limited clues and her keen insight into human nature to unmask the killer...or the next victim might be Tess herself.

Tinged with the supernatural and overshadowed by the mountains' lush, protective presence, this twisting psychological mystery is the first in A Murder in the Mountains series. From Amazon

My review: Even though Tess is pregnant with her first child that does not stop her from protecting her elderly best friend Miranda. Miranda lives in an assisted living home and has a new beau. After she starts dating a old friend, she receives threatening notes from his deceased wife. As Tess try’s to solve the mystery of the threats both her and her family are in jeopardy. This book is a great reminder of what a true family model really is and the consorted views of the mentally ill.

Heather Day Gilbert did an outstanding job of brining the characters to life, they were well developed. I found Miranda Warning to be fun, suspenseful and fact paced. I would recommend this book to anyone that loves who done it mysteries, ghosts and lots of family. I give it 5 stars. Miranda Warning is the first in A Murder in the Mountains Series and I look forward to reading others in this series.
I want to give a high-five to the author Heather Day Gilbert and publisher for bringing compelling Christian books that are entertaining and give hope to the reader with stories of faith. The Book Club Network Inc. provided me with this book in exchange for my honest review and I am so grateful for their, the authors and publishers generosity.
