Breaker's Reef Book Review


 About the Book

The murders occurring on Cape Refuge mirror scenes in a local writer s novels. Could the killer be a copycat or the author himself?

When a teenage girl s body is discovered in a boat between Tybee Island and Cape Refuge, all evidence points to a famous mystery writer who has taken up residence in the small town: Marcus Gibson. After all, ex-con Sheila Caruso discovers that a scene in one of his books perfectly mirrors the brutal crime scene, and Gibson seems just eccentric enough to be murderous.

Police Chief Cade works to confirm the evidence but more devastation is just around the corner. He and Blair Owens discover a second dead teenager, again paralleling a scene in one of Gibson s books. Then Sheila s daughter, Sadie, goes missing.

In a race against time, there are many questions to be answered. Can Cade find the killer before Sadie is murdered too? What connection does Sheila have with the crimes? And is Marcus one of the killers or is the murderer still walking free, ready to prey on his next victim?" (Goodreads)

My Review

 This was a great conclusion for this series! This and the first book were my favorites from the series. This story line held more suspense for me throughout the book. I enjoyed the same characters of course but also the new ones introduced. I love the message of Christ within the pages, even during a murder investigation everyone's lives still continue on. Cade of course is knee deep in tracking down the murderer while trying to live his own personal life. Sheila and Sadie are in this book a lot and I enjoyed them more this book than any before. 

I think the murder case was intriguing and overall the end wraps up nicely with all of the characters. 
I highly recommend this series and that you read them in order. 

Five stars.
