Everybody Wanted Room 623


Everybody Wanted Room 623 (Everybody’s a Suspect #2) by Cecil Murphy

Dr. Julie West has just arrived at the Cartledge Inn after a call by reformed prisoner Stefan Lauber. However, it turns out that Lauber has just been murdered.

According to the hotel clerk, everybody has been asking for Room 623. Why?

Throw in the mix Pastor James Burton who has come to the inn to meet the same friend. The two have strong feelings for each other, but Dr. West’s unbelief in Christ sets up a wall impeding any relationship to move forward.

What to do?

Thoughts After Reading:

I thought it was horrible.


A good premise but badly constructed book and boring. This author doesn’t seem to know how to write a good mystery. So much was told through another person instead of something that was in front of the characters.

A lot of these side characters who relayed all the information were annoying as well.

The Christianity parts were written much better than in the previous book, but this was still bad.

I figured out the bad guy as soon as they introduced him, it was painfully obvious.
