Engrossed And Guessing
For No Apparent Reason by S.K. Derban is a contemporary murder mystery which I really enjoyed. There was a great plotline that drew the reader in from the start – the cosy opening that morphed into the very sinister.
With amateur sleuthing meeting the professional FBI, the reader realised something big was going down. There were warm touches as a romance bubbled alongside the mystery.
God was in control. “When you allow God to be in control, there is no need to worry about tomorrow.” It did not always seem like it to the characters, but God always had a plan, we just need to trust Him.
Trust was a theme. When trying to solve a mystery, there is always the question of whom to trust.
There was a wonderful family bond shown in the novel. Sisters supported each other in lieu of a mother.
New friends are always welcome in life. Strangers soon become friends when drawn together by a common bond.
There was the theme of grief. Grief ties in with guilt. We often feel guilty when we begin to smile again following a death.
For No Apparent Reason was a cracking novel that had me engrossed and guessing. A great story with likable characters.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
