So you just what happens when a virtually unlikable business owner is found murdered on the beach in a small English town. Read Collide-O-Scope and you’ll find out just how crazy things are going to get in this small coastal community.
Detective Sergeant Kate Brannon is on the case of the homicide of Connie Wells. She must find out why the reclusive business owner was murdered. There are no witnesses, no real motive, and the only real clues are a missing high-powered camera and a bunch of random numbers written down in a journal. Kate spends her days investigating the small community members for clues. Many disliked Connie, but why kill her she was planning on moving anyways.
Gina Temple is the manager of the camp grounds that was owned by the deceased. She is one of the few people that called Connie a friend. Gina is the one community member that is really helping Kate with her investigations. She knows all the movers and shakers in the small town, and she isn’t afraid of sharing background information about each. Gina and Kate have an instant connection, but Gina has secrets of her own.
What makes this book really good is that it’s realistic. You feel like all the pieces are 100% plausible. Never did I feel like the author was grabbing at straws or making things too convenient for the cops or the killer. As the story unfolded all I could think is yeah I’m pretty sure this could happen in real life. This is a police crime drama with a side of romance. The romance unfolds in a way that was sweet and perfect for this book and fits with the story. Kate and Gina, while instantly have a spark, they also dance around each other enough to keep the reader guessing will they or not ever find their way to each other. Great book by an author that always delivers!
