Laila Harrow knows the best way to track down anything—or anybody—ask Billie Farmer. As the brains of the Laguna Shores Research Club, Billie teaches fellow members how to reach into the ether and pluck out facts. Counting on Billie’s guidance, Laila promises the St. Augustine Museum a catalogue of Florida Highwaymen paintings that will catapult her standing in the art world. But when Billie dies suddenly, Laila is forced to pull herself out of the darkness to think like Billie and follow the facts.

Fact: Billie’s good health makes the diagnosis of a heart attack unlikely.
Fact: Her actions the night of her death hint at a looming threat.
Fact: Her condo has been turned upside down, her computer and phone missing.

With support from her friends and family, Laila vows to get to the bottom of Billie’s death. Then one last piece of information comes to light.
Fact: Laila is at the center of a dangerous game.


Laura grew up in New York, the fifth of six daughters.  She earned a BA from the University of Toronto and went to work in Vigo, Spain. She lived in a small village and studied part-time at the University of Santiago.  Returning to the US, she taught Spanish and History in Seattle Schools.  After attending an Iowa Writers Workshop summer session, she began to submit short stories and write novels. China Rock, set in Washington State's San Juan Islands, was published in 2013. She now writes full-time, with The Laguna Shores Research Club coming September 2022, and a sequel in 2023.  She lives with her husband, Paul, close to her three adult children.

REVIEW:
I was really into this book and then the ending happened.
The ending was rushed. Like we went from the arrest at the crime scene to the courtroom in a flash, and I'm still wondering how it got there so fast. It came together, but I still wasn't a fan of that ending.
The ending didn't ruin the story though, no matter how rushed it was.
The rest of the book was intense, intriguing and a page-turner. You were invested in the story and needed the details.
Hopefully the next book has a better ending but I will definitely continue.


3.5/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
