Cari suspects an arsonist is at work

Tragedy strikes when a local bookstore is struck by lightning and burns to the ground. First responders discover an unknown man inside the building in their attempts to extinguish the fire. Intrigued by the man’s presence, Cari visits the building’s remains hoping to figure out why he was there. Her search leaves her with more questions than answers when a possible witness disappears. On the surface, the fire looks like an unfortunately timed lightning strike, but as Cari digs deeper the pieces seem to add up to arson. Meanwhile, she struggles to balance her personal and professional life when her sister announces that she is moving back to New York. Can Cari manage to put the clues together before someone else gets hurt?

Page Turner: This third book in the Cari Turnlyle series is the best so far, and another one is heading our way. There are enough twists and turns to keep you curious, and it’s a story your teen can read as well. Clean cut newspaper gal and police lieutenant gal make a good mystery-solving team.

Worth the read! The characters were very relatable. I especially like the relationship between the main character and her grandmother. Story line is easy to follow, with just enough suspense to keep you engaged all the way through the story.

Love this series!! I've read the first two in the Cari Turnlyle series and Book 3 does not disappoint. I personally love mysteries with a journalist for the main character. Cari bridges her natural curiosity with her keen insight about human nature for this new investigation, and it's just a great story and a wonderful series. Looking forward to more by this author.
