My Review:

ma--towak

Matowak Woman who Cries by Joylene Nowell Butler is a murder mystery that will keep you glued to its pages with a good plot and inviting deliverance. It moves nicely to get to the twist at the end.

A very important retired lawyer and diplomat is killed in his house after breakfast, and his wife is the main suspect.

There is a lot of racism going on in this book, related to the Native American characters and those who think white people are better than they are. The policeman in charge of the crime is a Native American and one of his suspects is his white boss’ native American woman that lives with him.

As in all good murder mysteries, this book has secrets, twists, abuse, a gun and a body. I enjoyed the theme and the characters, what I didn’t like at all was the unnecessary swear words. They seemed to be used at random and did not necessarily feel natural to the conversation. I knocked one point off the rating for making me listen to them. I recommend it to adults who like murder mysteries and don’t mind swearing in their reading.

Dangerous Game by Keith Morris

We find in Dangerous Game a thrilling book about terrorists and the Olympic games that come to Utah for the second time. This story is well done, clean and has characters who are Mormons. I recommended it to all who enjoy thrillers, detectives and don’t mind a sprinkle of Mormonism here and there. It isn’t preachy at all, nor is it a conversion tool. What it is, though, is a great reading for all readers from pre-teens to adults.

It all starts when Peter is asked by the FBI to investigate a murder in rural Utah. This results in contingency with his job as a security officer for the LDS church. He not only meets the deceased man, but also the police woman who will become his partner in this bizarre case.

Why would anyone kill a God-fearing man and call the police to tell them where his body is? Just a few days later, Peter and his partner find that that there have been other cases like this one. All the bodies had been bitten before they were killed. Are they dealing with a serial killer, or some other type of villain who doesn’t care for human life?

Tangled Hearts, an LDS Novel by Roseanne Evans Wilkins

What a great read for anyone who enjoys romance with LDS standards! It is clean, refreshing and fun. Roseanne takes the tale of family and enhances it with twists and mysteries.
