A Thorn Among the Lilies by Michael Hiebert

A Thorn Among the LiliesThis is the author's third novel in the Leah Teal detective series set in the small town of Alvin. I loved the first two so was delighted to get a review copy through Netgalley.

 

In this story Leah has the murder of a young woman to solve. The victim was shot dead and rather disturbingly had her eyelids sewn shut while she was still alive. When Leah discovers that a very similar murder occurred a few months previously in another town she realises there is a serial killer on the loose.

 

These novels are so easy to read and I love the likeability of the Teal family. We once again find out what is happening in the lives of Leah's daughter Carry, son Abe and his amusing friend Dewey. The ending felt a little rushed but I am hoping that I'll get to meet these characters again soon.


Rating: 3.5 out of 4


Published by Kensington Books on 30th June
