Without a Doubt (A Carol Childs Mystery Book 3)

By: Nancy Cole Silverman

Rating: 5 of 5

withoutadoubtThis is a fast-paced mystery in a series about Carol Childs. Carol is the news reporter for the now chick-lite radio station KCHC Talk Radio. Carol is chaffing at the bit because of the new format which has her reporting on fluff instead of hard news.

She, and her excellent friend Sherri, are doing a taste-test competition for charity which features various famous chocolatiers in Beverly Hills (about as hard hitting as her news stories are these days.) Things are going sweet until, right in front of them, a personal bomb goes off in Carol’s life shortly followed by an actual bomb going off at the prestigious Westin’s jewelry store.

Without meaning to, Carol gets caught up in more than just reporting the news. Once involved, her news reporter instincts kick in the pursue to story even if it means distancing herself from her boyfriend, Eric, an FBI agent who is involved in the same case.

There are a lot of clues and red herrings as well as several deaths – accidents or murder? It was a fun read, filled with jewel heists, mayhem and the advent of a new master criminal. This is a series that I enjoy and will be looking forward to reading new books in the future.

I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
