It's been quite some time since I've read a crime/mystery and now I wonder why I waited so long to pick up another. At first, when I realized that A Deadly Business by Lis Wiehl was #2 in the Mia Quinn series I thought I would be disappointed since I hadn't read the first. Surprisingly, I never would have known it as this book flowed well on it's own.
When Mia Quinn begins to suspect that maybe her husband's death wasn't an accident she starts off a chain reaction that leads to a very suspenseful story. What I like best about this mystery is that the lead character doesn't come across as overly beautiful, overly cocky, or as a know-it-all. I can't remember a mystery in quite some time that doesn't have all those aspects in the main character (avid readers, I'm sure you know what I mean!).
It wasn't so faced paced that I couldn't put it down before bed but it did have me wondering how it would end so I did finish it within a 24 hour time period. It was a perfect mix of suspense and mystery without being so far fetched like many mysteries. A very enjoyable read and I look forward to reading Lis Wiehl's other books!
