This is the third book in the Jazz Ramsey series by author Kylie Logan who’s written League of Literary Ladies, Button Box Mysteries, Ethnic Eats and Chili Cook-Off under this pen name. Her Constance Laux GR profile lists some other names you’ll find series under as well. I’ve read the first in the Button Box series and the first three in the League of Literary Ladies and I do enjoy her writing. I hope Jazz Ramsey continues on, because I really enjoy those key characters.
My Goodreads review:
A Trail of Lies: A Mystery by Kylie Logan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’m really enjoying this series, and this third book definitely didn’t disappoint. I love that Jazz and Nick have grown closer since the last book. Sweet Airedale pup Wally isn’t completely HRD trained, but he’s getting there. It was good to see Gus the Lab come out of retirement for a little bit to help out.
Readers got to know Nick’s mom Kim a little better in this book along with her backstory. She wasn’t a terrible person, but she didn’t do right by her son when he was little, although I think she finally came to realize it by the end of the book. There were a couple of surprise reveals in the story, and wow what a showdown. I had definitely not suspected whodunit, at least not until Jazz realized, then it made sense. The very ending was really good too and was emphasizing family.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher via NetGalley, and my opinions are my own.
