It has been twenty years since Lisa Craig was found murdered in a park at midnight. Her killer was never found. When the case is re-opened, reporter Scott Preston falls increasingly under Lisa's spell. Uncovering disturbing evidence of an inefficient police investigation, Scott decides to put his reporter skills to work and find out what really happened to Lisa Craig. Surprisingly the answer is closer to home than he thought.
She’s a victim of an unsolved murder. He’s a beat reporter bent on solving her case. He’s also dealing with a raging case of infatuation with her. What will come of things? Read Lisa and find out.
Ms. Lewis writes a captivating story filled with twists and turns which keeps the reader guessing throughout. Her scenes are rich in detail and her characters, though flawed in some manner are realistic and relatable. I enjoyed the intricacy of her story. Many times murder mystery romances are topical, but her work delves deep, like a true murder investigation.
Although I wished to see more romance for the hero, Scott, I thoroughly enjoyed following his journey to capture Lisa’s killer. I also enjoyed the multifaceted subplots in the story, including the love affair between Aunt Violet and Phillip Mitford. A few minor editing errors could take away from the reading experience, but not a total hassle.
If you want an engaging mystery read filled with a twist of romance, then Lisa is the novel for you. I give this work 4 books.
