Book & Author Details:
Reasonable Doubts by Kyra Lennon
Publication date: August 9th 2017
Genres: Romantic Suspense
Darcy Ryan is a woman on a mission.
A mission to take down the corrupt cops who ensured her best friend, Matteo Torres, went to jail for a crime he didn’t commit – the murder of his wife, Rebecca.
Darcy is willing to do just about anything to prove his innocence, including getting up close and personal with lead detective, Finn Drake.
She knows she’s playing a dangerous game, but it gets more dangerous than she could have ever imagined when she discovers everything she thought she knew about Rebecca Torres was wrong, and Finn Drake isn’t the man she thought he was either.
Darcy’s life and her best friend’s freedom are on the line. With her entire world turned on its head and time running out, she has to decide. Should she take a chance on Drake and go against her gut instincts, or go it alone and pray she can find the killer before he finds her?
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – novellas can be tricky things to get right. It can be difficult to condense all the necessary details and still allow the story to flow properly, for the character connections to develop organically.
However, I think that the author has done a decent job with this one. Told in dual POV, the back story is released in increments without being intrusive. The character connection is tangible and the narrative is fast paced and engaging.
An enjoyable, quick diversion.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
Kyra is a self-confessed book-a-holic, and has been since she first learned to read. When she’s not reading, you’ll usually find her hanging out in coffee shops with her trusty laptop and/or her friends, or girling it up at the nearest shopping mall.
Kyra grew up on the South Coast of England and refuses to move away from the seaside which provides massive inspiration for her novels. Her debut novel, Game On (New Adult Contemporary Romance), was released in July 2012, and she scored her first Amazon Top 20 listing with her New Adult novella, If I Let You Go in November.
