TIDEWATER MURDER by C Hope Clark

Filed under: Book Review,Novels,Thriller — by elizabethducie @ 2:18 pm

Tidewater MurderThis is the second in the Carolina Slade series of mysteries and anyone who’s read my review of Lowcountry Bribe will know how highly I rate Hope’s writing (not to mention the generous support she gives to writers everywhere). Her second novel does not disappoint.

Carolina Slade is moving home, with her two children, hoping to leave behind memories of a bad husband who turned out to be really dangerous. A call from co-worker and friend Savvy pitches Slade into another mystery, more danger and further trouble with friends, colleagues and part-time lover, Special Agent Wayne Largo.

Slade is impetuous, fiercely defensive of her friend – even when the evidence all points to Savvy being involved in crooked deals – and at times, downright irritating. But I guess that’s the point. Hope doesn’t write boring characters; she invents real-life, flawed individuals, then throws them into exciting situations. Another great read, highly recommended.
