All Maddox Storm wanted was to come home and hide from the world in peaceful solitude for a few short weeks. Oh, and give her soon-to-be ex cheating scumbag husband a fat headache while she’s at it. He hates all small towns, and Silver Firs in particular, with the kind of passion most men reserve for the bedroom.
So call it revenge, or call it poetic justice, but investing his savings in the town’s founding inn seemed like the perfect plan for all her needs.
But everything goes out the window when Maddox finds her arch-nemesis dead as a doormat in the kitchen downstairs.
Before she knows it, she’s embroiled in a murder investigation and tangling with the smoky-eyed detective on the case. Not that she doesn’t trust him to do his job, but he may not be quite as motivated as she is to bring the guilty party to justice. After all, she’s the one who unwittingly incriminated upstanding townsfolk and worse, she may be living under the same roof as a pair of unlikely murderers.
Maddox Storm is a fabulous character, feisty and likable, with her own issues, such as a cheating husband. Now as a stake holder in Hollow House, in her small town of Silver Firs, she moves in and finds herself in a murder mystery. Ms Daggon isn’t well liked and Maddox finds herself in more than enough trouble.
This first, in a series, novel will delight. It gives the reader a new ‘book boyfriend’ with Detective Bishop and a chance to enjoy a girlie relationship with Maddox and her best friend Jenna.
Worst Laid Plans, really is a brilliant who did it read. No way did I guess the ending and with hidden clues, there was no suggestion to who it might be.
There are funny moments and Claire Robyns has written the beginning of what looks like to be fantastic and interesting tale. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
A delightful and exceptional read.
