Daily Review: A Fine Year for Murder by Lauren Carr
June 11, 2017
If they can solve the fifteen year old murder, maybe they can stop the nightmares.
After ten months of marital bliss, Jessica Faraday and Murphy Thornton are still discovering and adjusting to their life together. Settled in their new home, everything appears to be perfect … except in the middle of the night when, in the darkest shadows of her subconscious, a deep secret from Jessica’s past creeps to the surface to make her strike out at Murphy.
When investigative journalist Dallas Walker tells the couple about her latest case, known as the Pine Bridge Massacre, they realize Jessica may have witnessed the murder of a family while visiting family at the winery near-by, and suppressed the memory.
Determined to uncover the truth and find justice for the murder victims, Jessica and Murphy return to the scene of the crime with Dallas Walker, a spunky bull-headed Texan. Can this family reunion bring closure for a community touched by tragedy or will this prickly get-together bring an end to the Thorny Rose couple?

Another home run for Lauren. The Thorny Rose series is terrific and can’t wait for more. We learn more about Jessica Faraday, Murphy Thornton’s wife. A great pairing as they are still getting to know each other in their young marriage.
Jessica has nightmares that scare her so much she ends up attacking Murphy….as these get worse, the both decide they must get to the bottom of this deep seated problem. It seems that Jessica witnessed the murder of one of her girl friends at a very young age, but can’t remember any of it.
With her father’s help, Mac Faraday and her devoted husband, Murphy they and all Jessica’s family and friends join to help her in the long submerged event in her life. As always, there are bodies, secrets and total confusion. A great read, I didn’t want to put it down.

There were some twists and turns in the book a little humorous to me. It kept my interest and me wanting to know what was going to happen next.
Dallas is a hoot. The relationship between Jessica and Murphy is very loving they work good as a team. I am looking forward to more of the Thorny Rose Mysteries. I enjoy the whole clan. Lauren Carr has done it again.
I will admit my love for the Mac Faraday books are on the top of the list.

Lauren Carr has become a master at spinning yarns that are simply not easy to predict.
In order to stop the nightmares Jessica Faraday suffers from a childhood sleepover where an entire family was brutally murdered practically before her eyes, she and husband Murphy Thornton embark upon an investigation to solve the fifteen year old murder and stop the bad dreams.
Working with investigative journalist Dallas Walker, they find this investigation full of danger as they both become targets of the original killers, people with enough influence to have protected them for years.
Very, very difficult to put down.
