Immerse yourself in a gripping sleuth murder mystery with Lacey's Star by Kay DiBianca. Airplane pilot Cassie Deakin travels to her Uncle Charlie's farm in Tabor County with Deputy Frank White. She finds her uncle on the verge of death after an encounter with two nefarious strangers. Cassie and Frank soon begin to investigate what prompted the attack on Uncle Charlie's life, only to discover links with Charlie's old friend from Vietnam, Sinclair Alderson, whose eight-year-old sister, Lacey, died under mysterious circumstances forty years ago in 1970. The search for Sinclair takes them through three different counties. But following the clues, Cassie and Frank eventually find themselves entangled in an even more insidious conspiracy whose perpetrator seems to be hiding in plain sight. Now, Cassie must be wary before she confronts a dangerous murderer.
Lacey's Star is one of those whodunnit stories where you're constantly second-guessing yourself and still fail to guess the killer right until the end. Author Kay DiBianca has crafted a delicious murder mystery tale that any sleuth lover will devour with relish. The narrative hooks you in from the very first page, and it's a non-stop thrill ride from there. Apart from the intricate plotting, the characters keep your eyes glued to the pages. Each character is well-developed, with multiple layers to their personality, exhibiting actions and motives that make sense to the reader. Cassie and Frank have palpable chemistry, and you can't help wishing they end up together. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and urge whodunnit readers and crime fiction enthusiasts not to miss out on this one!
