Reviews - What do customers think about Evidence of Murder (Murder Mystery Series #1) (Steeple Hill Love Inspired Suspense #137)?
Evidence of Murder Jun 29, 2009
I'm quite familiar with Ms. Nelson's books. I became a fan with her first series. Unfortunately I didn't find this book to be as good as her other books. The hero lacks something for me. It's an okay read, but she's definitely done better.
A picture's worth a thousand words Apr 28, 2009
Decades-old photos of a multiple homicide are found in Samantha Reid's newly refurbished dry cleaning store. Horrified, she takes them to the police and later discovers that the last surviving memeber of the family, houseboat entrepreneur Ryan Davidson, wants to know who killed his family and why. The mystery plot is top-notch and the romance moves along slowly, since Ryan's given up on God but Samantha hasn't. The concept of "why bad things happen to good people" comes up again--as it does in many Christian books--and is handled well.
Inspirational Romance Mar 17, 2009
Samantha Reid has bought an old dry-cleaning establishment with plans to refurbish the building, update the equipment and open for business. But she and her friends find more than she bought with hard earned dollars. There's the inevitable junk left over from the former owner's packrat days, and a roll of undeveloped film. Vacation pictures? Nope. Photos from a decade-old murder involving an entire family, with the only survivor, Ryan Davidson, poking around, attempting to solve the crime against his family. Two quirky animals, interference from someone who wants to keep the case closed, and too much attention for Samantha twist into a plot for more murder--and romance.
You'll enjoy this story, and don't expect to put it down in the middle. It's a great read, all the way to the end.

Original Intent Mar 5, 2009
All Samantha Reid wants to do is turn her recently purchased building into a cleaners. While clearing out debris left by the previous owner she and a friend stumble upon evidence that is the link to an unsolved murder.
The lone survivor of the murdered victim's family, Ryan Davidson shows up to see if he can put together the pieces of the unsolved puzzle. Ryan and Sam must work together to not only solve the mystery, but also to survive. Unfortunately they will find all too soon that solving of this crime is not beneficial to all; and that is where the intrigue begins.
Ms. Nelson has woven a story that will cause the reader to put on their sleuth hat in order to help the protagonists solve the crime. The multi-layered plot of Evidence of Murder is one that will definitely keep you from skipping pages.
