BOOK REVIEW: BEFORE I WAKE
What happens when the sheriff of a peaceful place called Justice suddenly finds his town's visitors being murdered?
Rae Gabriella is trying to turn her life around. She was working as an undercover investigator for the FBI and things did not go as planned with one of the investigations.
She is offered a job as a private investigator in her former boyfriend's detective agency. She is not too sure this is a good idea but needs to start new somewhere so why not in Justice.
The strange thing about the murders that are occurring is that the women who are being murdered still have money in their billfolds and jewelry on the dresser. So why are these women being murdered?
Rae happened to be staying at one of the hotels where a woman is murdered. Her family hires Rae to try and find out what happened. Rae met this woman earlier in the day. Her death seemed like a natural death but she was healthy. Sheriff Nathan is not too happy to hear that Rae has been hired to investigate.
Is Rae successful at finding out why these women are being murdered? Is she able to find the killer? Could she be the next victim?
Dee Henderson has written an excellent police procedural that will keep the reader in suspense wondering who is the murderer. One minute you might think you are sure who is doing the killing but as you read a little more, you are not really sure. This novel has an exciting plot and as usual, Dee Henderson always comes through in making her stories a great read.
