A Time To Die by Jeffrey S. Savage

To see my review of the first book in this series please click here: House of Secrets.

Title: A Time To Die: A Shandra Covington Mystery (Book 3)
Author: Jeffrey S. Savage
Reviewer: Karen
Genre: Adult Mystery
Rating: Love
Alerts/Warnings: Drug-related deaths
Premise: "Reporter Shandra Covington becomes the "beloved" next target of a serial killer walking the streets of Salt Lake City. If she's to save herself, she must discover who is responsible for the recent deaths of several young women--all thought to be overdose victims." (PG Library System)
Opinions: I LOVE Shandra Convington. She is one of the most intriguing, best written, realistic characters out there. Shandra is spunky, brilliant, and a lot of fun to read about. I've loved learning about her from the first book in this series, House of Secrets, and she just keeps getting better. Shandra realizes when she's screwed up, and yet she always strives to follow her instincts and to do what is right. The only thing that matches her appetite for truth and being a reporter is her appetite for good food.

In true murder mystery form, this books has its twists and turns that left me with my jaw open a time or two as answers became revealed. I was so drawn into the story that I read it in under 24 hours (even while taking care of a 2-yr old with shingles, and a teething 9 month old). If you love a good murder mystery, then please read this entire series.
