Are you searching for a unique whodunit?

Then I have another book to add to your summer reading list!

And two mystery/ suspense lovers will have their very own copies to enjoy! Just leave me a note in the guestbook...

Fatal Deduction by Gayle Roper is a fascinating mix of family dynamics, painful pasts and crosswords puzzles to die for. The clues might be in the puzzles, but the lessons learned on loving the unlovable and depending on the Lord are worth digging into the story and decoding the truth for yourself.

One across… Three down… The answer is in the puzzle. The danger is in not solving it before time’s up.

Libby Burton longs to be close to her twin sister, Tori, but their lives have taken them in different directions. Forced to share Aunt Stella’s old Philadelphia home in order to receive their inheritance, Libby hopes for a change, but it isn’t looking good so far.

First, Tori tries to steal the affection and allegiance of Libby’s thirteen-year-old daughter, Chloe. Then when a crossword puzzle with a hidden warning shows up on their doorstep, Tori refuses to take it seriously—in spite of the dead man who delivers it.

Libby finds comfort in neighbor Drew Canfield, but he hesitates to trust her after his disastrous marriage. As Libby struggles to act faithfully in the midst of these confusing relationships, she must also deal with a stolen diamond and a botched kidnapping. The answer to her problems lies in the riddles of the crosswords, if only she can solve the puzzle before it’s too late.

Gayle Roper has been writing mystery and romantic suspense novels for more than thirty years and is the author of over forty-five books. She is a three-time Christy Award finalist, the winner of three Holt Medallions, and the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award from Romantic Times magazine. Her novel Autumn Dreams won Romance Writers of America’s RITA Award for Best Inspirational Romance. She and her husband, Chuck, divide their time between Pennsylvania and Ontario, Canada.

It's early morning, Amy, and maybe my eyes aren't working right yet. I can't find the guestbook!

Crossword puzzles and mysteries - a fun combination. I'd love to enter the drawing.
