Murder on Edisto by C. Hope Clark is the first of Ms. Clark’s books that I’ve had the pleasure of listening to (I had the audiobook). It’s a fast paced thriller mystery that will keep you intrigued.
Callie Morgan is a tough ex-Boston Detective who has been thrown off her game. Forced to accept the murder of her husband, she takes a reprieve to Edisto Beach, hoping to regain her footing with her only son. But trouble only follows her and she finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation and multiple robberies. Worse, she’s being looked at as a suspect. Callie finds the inner resolve to fight back and use the training she’s been given to find the killer and stop the robberies but it might cost her the life of her son and herself.
My favorite character in this story is the crazy gypsy neighbor, Ms. Bianche. She’s the complete opposite of Callie and someone to keep her life lighter, when possible. She had me laughing at her antics.
I found the story to be extremely well done and enjoyed it very much and would highly recommend it. I received the audiobook of Murder on Edisto from the author and have provided my honest opinion in this review.
