Book Review - "A Matter of Trust"

Lis Wiehl and April Henry are back with a new book and a new series: "A Matter of Trust," the first Mia Quinn Mystery. 

Book Description from the publishers:

When life is murder, who can you trust?

One minute Mia Quinn is in her basement, chatting on the phone with a colleague at the prosecutor’s office. The next minute there’s a gunshot over the line, and Mia listens in horror as her colleague and friend Colleen bleeds to death.

Mia’s a natural for heading up the murder investigation, but these days she has all she can do to hold her life together. As a new widow with a pile of debts, a troubled teenaged son, and a four-year-old who wakes up screaming at night, she needs more time with her family, not less—and working Colleen’s case will be especially demanding. But Colleen was her friend, and she needs to keep her job. So she reluctantly teams up with detective Charlie Carlson to investigate Colleen’s death. But the deeper they dig, the more complications unfold—even the unsettling possibility that someone may be coming after her.

Lis Wiehl’s signature plot twists and relatable characters shine in this absorbing series debut . . . with an intriguing cameo from her best-selling Triple Threat series.

My Review -
I loved all four books in the Triple Threat series and was disappointed when they ended that there were no more; however this latest book  by these authors have taken care of that!  Wow - what an excellent start to this series and I am looking forward to the next book!  Mia has so much going on in her own personal life and her professional life gets so much more complicated as well.  There are so many story lines going on just like in the Triple Threat series and I love this about Wiehl and Henry's writing.  This really pulls the reader into the story and the characters' lives as well as getting them really involved and engrossed in the story.  I highly recommend this book to fans of the Triple Threat series and anyone who enjoys a well-written, totally engrossing mystery!
