Book Review: Deed To Death By D.B. Henson

I recently received a copy of the book Deed To Death by D.B. Henson to review.

Deed To Death follow Toni Matthews, a 29 year old real estate agent in Nashville. She has a successful career, great friends, and a architect fiance named Scott Chadwick. Everything seems absolutely perfect! Just a few days before the wedding, Scott has an accident at a construction site, and falls to his death. Instead of celebrating one of the happiest days of her life, Toni is burying the man she was going to marry. The coroner labels his death suicide, but Toni knows he would never do that, and it must have been an accident - even if friends and family doesn't seem to think so.

When the will is contested by Scott's brother, Brian, Toni begins to suspect something is up. Why else would Brian be so bent on taking the home she shared with Scott away from her? She does some digging, and finds out that not only does Brian owe a lot of money, but maybe the man she thought she knew wasn't that honest with her - Scott has a whole closet of secrets. Someone is on to her snooping though - will she be the next target? Will she prove Scott was the victim of foul play? Read the book to find out!

If your idea of summer reading is thriller mysteries, add Deed To Death to your must-read list. The book starts off chugging super fast with Scott's death and then keeps going at that pace - it's one you'll probably zip through in a day or two. It's not a long read (it checks in at under 300 pages) and there's not a ton of information thrown at you with everything the characters are wearing, loved, etc. Deed To Death is actually the author's first book (it was originally published simply as an e-book), but you'd never guess it.

The book also contains a reading group guide, with questions to provoke some entertaining and interesting answers, as well as a short Q&A with the author.

Deed To Death by D.B. Henson is a trade paperback fiction book published by Touchstone that will be available this Tuesday, July 5th 2011 at your favorite bookstore. It is 288 pages long. The suggested cover price is $14.00, but Amazon has it available for $10.63 as of this posting. It is also available as an e-book for the Kindle and other e-readers.

I received a copy of this book in order to read it and share my thoughts on it. All opinions are my own, and not that of the author(s) or publisher.
