Fatal Witness (Pearl River #2) by Patricia Bradley

 

As a child, artist and potter Dani Bennett witnessed the brutal murder of her parents. With no memory of the incident or her true identity, she was forced to take on a new name and a new life, hidden away in Montana for the past 25 years.

Mae Richmond has spent the same stretch of time searching for her granddaughter, who went missing the night her daughter and son-in-law were murdered. Convinced the woman she saw in a pottery magazine feature is the woman she's been searching for, she enlists the help of K-9 officer Mark Lassiter of Pearl Springs, Tennessee, who tracks Dani down.

Skeptical but curious, Dani sets out on a journey to uncover the secrets of her past and reclaim her true identity. But someone close to her is determined to keep the truth of what happened all those years ago hidden.

My Review


 

This is the second book in the Pearl River series, but they can stand alone, there are recurring characters.

This is a sad story, of a young woman whom is finally reunited with her Grandmother after 25 years, I can't imagine, but this was to keep her safe.

There are a few people in this story whom have embraced evil, and it seems everyone is expendable, but my mind kept changing as to whom the culprit was.

There are big bomb shells dropped and surprises, yes, I really didn't guess whom the was the guilty party, and I was saddened.

This is a page turner, I needed answers, but we are gifted with some sweet romance along dogging bullets!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Revell, and was not required to give a positive review.
