Review: Deadly Devotion by Sandra Orchard

Mysterious Reviews: Reviews of New Mysteries, Novels of Suspense, and Thrillers

A Mysterious Review of Deadly Devotion by Sandra Orchard. A Port Aster Secrets Novel.

Review summary: There are many characters in this novel of (slightly romantic) suspense, but each is well developed, uniquely identified, and probably more importantly to the reader, easily kept track of. The study of herbs, their benefits and risks, plays nicely into the well crafted murder mystery plot. All in all, this is a very enjoyable mystery and a pleasure to read.
