Book Review: Murder in A-Minor by Janis Thomas

Murder in A-Minor
By Janis Thomas
Genre: Murder Mystery

Former detective Samantha Wedlock is having a bad year. After botching a huge case with the New York PD, Sam flees to her childhood home of Southern California and escapes her demons with the Internet and booze. Her career is over, her instincts have taken a vay-cay, and her music—the songs she composes in her head to help her solve puzzles and the challenges of her life—has abandoned her. When her old flame, sexy Lieutenant Jack Hudson, shows up on her doorstep to ask for her help with the case of two murdered college coeds, Sam refuses. But she can’t resist Jack, and she can’t resist the hunt, and soon becomes enmeshed in the investigation. The more involved she becomes, the more she sees the case as a means of rediscovering the things she’s lost: her purpose, her drive, and her hope for the future. With her music playing at full volume, Sam must re-sharpen her wits and learn to trust her instincts again in order to catch a cunning killer.

My Review

Nothing is better than reading a murder mystery that rocks the house! Murder in A-Minor is AWESOME. Janis Thomas has nailed this genre. The characters are diverse and realistic. I adore Sam Wedlock, drinking issues and all! She is powerful, smart, funny, and will take criminals out. 

In this novel, the plot is swirling with murder, deception, jealousy, and passion. You've got a chemistry thing happening with Sam and Jack in the midst of them attempting to solve the multiple murders that all tie together. 

This book surprised me, pleased me, and has me begging for more Sam Wedlock! If you're looking for a well-written read, then look no further.
