Quiet the Dead (Promise McNeal Mysteries #1)
MURDER IN SLEEPY APPALACHIA. AND PSYCHIC CLUES FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE...
Promise McNeal is startled awake one night by a jarring dream: she sees a beautiful woman, hanging over a shallow creek, strangled to death with a red scarf. An unsettling image to say the least for a woman who recently left her lucrative job as a psychologist in bustling Atlanta for the mountains of No
The author constructed a story with just enough intrigue to keep one reading. In a world of high tech happenings Promise goes about her business without the the part and uses her senses to help solve issues from the PST and present day world.
It is a good book when the characters are tea
Ms James characters have human flaws. The situations are contemporary and the reader can feel the reality of the situation. There is a low grade friction between paranormal, intuition and psychic that adds spice
Quiet The Dead: A Promise McNeal Mystery is not exactly the kind of mystery I enjoy. It was fairly dry without any excitement or "well mystery". It had a lot of ancient history. I never have really enjoyed history. Maybe you will.
I was just looking for something light with a bit of whimsy to read and I found it. I also found myself getting attached to the wacky characters which is always a nice surprise. This was a freebie but I am happily purchasing the next Promise McNeal book.
This is a great story with well-developed memorable characters, an interesting plot, and a number of notable observations and original description. It is marred down to 4 stars by too many grammar and spelling/proofreading errors. It's a shame. Read it anyway, but be prepared to have the pleasure reduced by preventable flaws.
I will definitely be picking up the second book down the road.
