Death by Divorce

Death by Divorce (Caribbean Murder Mystery #2) by Jaden Skye

Thoughts Before Reading:

I received this book free from BookBub an amazing site that you can get free ebooks from. You know me and free things.

Plot Synopsis:

So Cindy Blaine has solved the death of her husband in Death by HoneymoonCindy is lost at what to do next with her life when she is called by an old school friend Dalia who’s husband has gone missing.

Understanding how her friend feels, unsure that she can solve this crime too, she still heads down to Grenada. There she teams up with police detective Mattheus and sets out to solve the disappearance.

This is a tricky case as Ames was very unfaithful and would leave for weeks at a time, could he have left Dalia for another woman, like he did the wife before?

It also turns out that while Ames is very rich and lives a high life, most of his money has come from Dalia-who has refused to fund him any longer.

Oh

There is much more than meets the eye with drugs, deception, and a complex web of lies and other lives.

Hmm…

Thoughts After Reading:

This was a good follow-up novel. The mystery and characters were very interesting with some good twists and turns.

The combination of Cindy’s inexperience but emotional clarity, matched with Mattheus’ weary experience and logical thinking was great. I thought it was a good read sans all the awful spelling mistakes.

Plot Synopsis:

Cindy and Clint have just been married.

They decide to head out to Barbados for their honeymoon.

But instead of the high class side that are on the rougher, more rugged side as Clint prefers it for surfing. Things might not have gone well in the engagement, mainly his family hates her, but Cindy is so happy that this wedding marks the beginning of a new and long life.

But one morning, Cindy come down with food poisoning and stays in the room, planning on resting and meeting Clint on the beach in an hour. She accidentally oversleeps, and run down to the beach.

On the beach she finds Clint’s body. Death on their honeymoon.

Cindy returns to New York but can’t go back to her job investigating facts for a major newspaper. She can’t leave things alone as their turns out to be too many questions. First Clint’s family start accusing her of murder and threatening her and trying to control Clint’s stuff and his money.

Then it turns out that Clint was lying to her about some things. He said he went to a conference to talk on a paper, but went to a completely different city with a friend.

It turns out that he also has a child with an ex-girlfriend.

What?!

For Cindy the last straw is when her sister borrows her car and crashes due to cut brake lines, almost dying.

After that, Cindy heads back to the island to find out the answers to what really happened to her husband. But can Cindy navigate an island she knows little about and not only solve this case-but survive?

Thoughts After Reading:

I enjoyed this book.

At times Cindy seems a little plain and wooden but I thought it did well as a first novel in trying to capture your attention, develop characters, etc.

It is an interesting mystery and as the rest of the series was free, I’m interested to see if it stays good or goes downhill. I guess we will just have to wait and see.
