Bitter Truth – review


This cozy mystery quickly turns chilly with a murder and an attack in the opening pages. Main character, Landon Smith, still shaken from her adventures in Hidden Secrets, (Book 2 of the Green Dory Series), is determined not to get involved. However, she soon finds herself in the thick of the investigation despite how events trigger her own unresolved psychological issues.

Janet Sketchley’s tight writing is full of homey details—nicely appointed rooms in a seaside inn on the shores of beautiful Nova Scotia, Canada, cups of coffee, tea, and fragrant baking—disarming us for the plot’s next whiplash development.

The exploration of deeper themes of forgiveness, trust, and faith in God (enhanced by a set of discussion questions at the book’s end) deepen the characters. They also add a dimension to the story that goes beyond mere entertainment.

Bitter Truth is recommended reading for all who love a good puzzley story.

I received a copy of Bitter Truth from the author for the purpose of writing a review.
