An unexplainable, deplorable death opens, Murder, Madness and Love, the first book of a series by Yolanda Renèe. The scene in itself, an alley, leading to a car park, outside of a noble bar where the woman worked, is detestable, but it captivated my attention, throwing me into Renèe well-crafted book like a fireball.
Sarah Palmer, labeled as The Black Widow, due to the circumstances behind her husband’s death becomes the first suspect on Quaid’s list after he talks with his colleague and friend, Terry O’ Conner. However, Sarah Palmer and Steven Quaid are drawn to each other; loving her changes his viewpoint.
The book is based on locations in Alaska and Renee’s descriptive scenes give us a vivid picture of the cold. Renèe shows the loveliness and the beauty of the forty-ninth state and displays the dangers and the attitudes of the people who live within its borders. Packed with suspense, each chapter brings you deeper into her Alaskan world.
Her caring approach to the original inhabitants calling them by their tribal name impressed me. I had started reading book three of her series and had the hunger to know what happened before book three as I read her snippets in The A to Z Blog Challenge where she is also a participant. I then decided to put down the third book and read Murder, Madness and Love.
Renèe has written a beautiful Thriller filled with tension and curiosity that will keep you turning the pages.
I look forward to reading book two.
