 The Prime Suspect (A Sam MacKade PI Mystery) by Lauren Carr

Genre: Mystery
Publisher: Acorn Book Services
Release date: Oct 26, 2023
Tour dates: Oct 26, to Nov 30, 2023
Content Rating: PG-13 (Lauren Carr’s books are murder mysteries, so there are murders involved. Occasionally, a murder will happen on stage. There is sexual content, but always behind closed doors. Some mild swearing (a hell or a damn few and far between). No F-bombs!

Book Description:

Two murders with one common denominator. Both victims betrayed Bryce Greyson. How could she not be the prime suspect?

Four years after Bryce’s cheating husband is gunned down, her boyfriend-stealing former roommate’s remains are found buried under a statue at her alma mater.

Declared the prime suspect by both detectives and the media, Bryce has no choice but to hire someone to clear her name.

Enter Sam MacKade, private eye.

To solve two murders, the former police K-9 officer and his canine partners must sift through the clues and the lies to reveal the true prime suspect.

Review By LAWonder10:

Outstanding Author, Lauren Carr, has once again “hit it out of the ballpark” with her new Sam Mackade Mystery series!

Carr has such a delightful way of creating pet vocabulary that is so humorous and plausible. A pet lover herself, Carr always includes dogs and/or felines in her stories as key character parts. They truly add to the energy and fun of each story. It never detracts from the mysteries themselves. Also, there never is just one mystery in her books. They are very “weblike”, entangling more people and situations to each plot. They are never boring!

In this new series, Sam is an ex-police detective and ex-K9 policeman, now running his own Sam MacKade Private Investigations and Security services. He has a teenage daughter, Makayla, and a best friend, ex-wife, Alyson Perez. The two other members of his team are Gus and Cleo.

He moved into a new area and a new High School for his daughter, Makayla. The soccer coaches were Bryce Greson and Erin Gibson.

Bryce immediately became an interest and an issue. She wanted to hire him. Does he really want to take this controversial case on?

Captivating the readers’/listeners’ interest from the very first page, the momentum steadily builds, new characters are added, the mysteries increase, the “web” is actively designed, a touch of romance, a touch of humor, suspense increases, and it finally bursts and bursts again into a stunning climax! An Epilogue ends this segment and leaves the reader/listener anxious for the next venture in the series.

The Book Cover and the Title choices are perfect! The image is simple yet colorfully eye-catching. The title fits the main gist of the story content.

I offer a firm 5 Stars rating for this book. 

This book was gifted to me with no pressure to post a positive review. This is my honest review.
