Happy Friday! Last night was all rain and I’m not going to complain, because by this time of year, its usually snow. So I’ll take the rain and the cooler temperatures if it keeps the snow away.
Thanks to GetRed PR and to the author for the gifted copy in exchange for my feature and honest review
DOUBLE EXPOSURE – Jeanne Sacken (Released September 27th, 2022)
My quick thoughts: Despite this being book two in the series I didn’t feel lost, so it can be read as a standalone with ease. I really enjoyed this new thriller/mystery and I do want to go back and check out book one. 4/5 stars
The second novel in the award-winning Annie Hawkins Green series.
November 2015—Seasoned war photojournalist Annie Hawkins returns home after an assignment to find her life falling apart. She’s under investigation for an incident that happened six months earlier in Afghanistan. Her best friend’s daughter, Seema, is still missing, apparently with her Taliban boyfriend. Her daughter Mel and friends are busy fundraising to rebuild the Wad Qol Secondary School for Girls and expect Annie to deliver the money. To make matters worse, she has a major argument with the love of her life, Finn Cerelli, and they’re no longer speaking.
When Annie returns to Afghanistan to cover peace talks between the government and the Taliban, she takes a side trip to Wad Qol, where she discovers that not everyone wants the new school. Sabotage delays construction, and when a worker ends up dead, it’s clear the militants are to blame. It’s also obvious that they know exactly where Annie is.
