Book Review of Violet Dawn by Brandilyn Collins

Brandilyn Collins has done it again. Violet Dawn begins with a gruesome discovery of the body of famous movie actress, Edna San then takes off to give the reader another breathless ride. The difference with this book is in the characters created for the town of Kanner Lake. Quirky, lovable, sympathetic, and somewhat eclectic, the townspeople are richly drawn against the tapestry of the beauty of Idaho. The reader will suffer with Paige as she tries to fit in with the others in town, but finds herself the victim in an elaborate scheme to frame her for murder. No one is free from suspicion and help comes from the least likely direction. The care and concern of these likable characters contrasts sharply with the scenes from Paige’s past. In this first novel in the Kanner Lake series, Brandilyn has all the suspense of her usual thrillers combined with the small town feel and unforgettable characters of her earliest novels. A must read for fans of Brandilyn Collins.

I have never read any of Brandilyn Collins's books but this does sound like a winner. I love mysteries and would like to read this one and perhaps become a Collins fan.

Thanks for opportunity to do so.

How strange! I just found Brandilyn Collin's web site while surfing the net. Before then, I had not heard of her.

Now that I have read your review of Violet Dawn, I will definitely read this book.

Thank you, and thank you for the chance to have a free copy.
