She certainly suspects that there are ulterior motives involved.
When her mother, Yvette, finds Jett dead in the library and
calls Dev's father, who is barely out of prison for crimes
he didn't commit, Dev makes the decision to get her father
out of the crime scene and tell the police that she and her
mother found Jett's body together. Is this a wise decision
that will save her father or one that will land all three
of them in prison for a long, long time?
While all this is going on, there is a Professor Hinkley
in town. He claims that there are UFO's being seen around
town and that he’s in communication with the aliens
and plans to welcome them to earth. To top it off, one of
Devereaux's suitors, Noah Underwood, is watching his mother
Nadine unravel further and further mentally. She's even become
a believer in the UFOs. The other man in Dev's life, Jake
Del Vecchio, is distracted by his own mentally damaged wife,
Meg. Poor Dev just can't win! The questions remain as to whether
she'll be able to unmask the killer to save her parents, resolve
the UFO situation and figure out a way to fix her own love
This is a fun and fast read in an entertaining series. The
characters and relationships continue to develop in unexpected
ways and bringing in Dev's mother adds to the back story.
Although I didn't find the mysteries too challenging to solve,
I remained engaged and interested throughout the book.
If you love a
solid mystery with some romance, some offbeat characters and
unusual plots, you won't want to miss “Between a Book
and a Hard Place.”
