REVIEW: Trial by Twelve by Heather Day Gilbert

REVIEW: Trial by Twelve by Heather Day Gilbert

{About the Book}

Tess Spencer loves her low-key job at the Crystal Mountain Spa, which allows her plenty of down-time with her one-year old daughter and lawyer husband, Thomas. But when a pool installation turns up eight skeletons in the spa's back yard, Tess becomes entangled in a sleuthing job destined to go awry.

As the investigation gets underway, someone dumps a fresh body near the excavated burial site, confirming unspeakable fears. A serial killer has returned to Buckneck, West Virginia...a skilled hunter with a unique taste in prey.

When Tess agrees to help the cunning Detective Tucker gather clues from the inside, she discovers the posh spa hides more than dead bodies. Even as she sifts through layers of deceit, Tess realizes too late that the killer's sights have zeroed in on her. 

Unpredictable psychological mystery replete with memorable characters, Trial by Twelve is Book Two in A Murder in the Mountains series.

{My Review}

Trial by Twelve is the second book in Heather's Murder in the Mountain's series. The first book Miranda Warning was a favourite last year. So I couldn't wait to read and review Trial by Twelve. Trial by Twelve was one heck of a crazy ride and if your a fan of mysteries then you need to read this series. Tess Spencer is back for another mystery, a serial killer who keeps dropping bodies and she thinks he is after her next.

Tess Spencer is still living in West Virginia with her husband and loving her job at the Crystal Mountain Spa. The job allows her to be with her daughter and help her husband pay of those darn student loans that so many people are plagued with these days. One day while at work the contruction team was digging to install a pool and during the dig human remains are discovered. The police are called and Detective Tucker along with Tess Spencer is on the case.

Trial by Twelve is an on-the-edge-of-your-seat mystery that you will not want to put down.
