Today I’m participating in Digital Reads Blog Tour’s Tied to Deceit Tour! Thank you for the opportunity to read and review this book!
A little bit about the author:
Neena H. Brar lives in Edmonton, Canada with her husband, two children, a highly energetic German Shepherd, and a lifetime collection of her favorite books. A hermit at heart, she’s a permissive mother, a reluctant housekeeper, a superb cook, and a hard-core reader. Tied to Deceit is her debut novel.
Onto the book: On a drizzly August morning, the inhabitants of the hill town of Sanover, Himachal Pradesh, wake up to the shocking news of the murder of the exquisite, secretive, malicious, and thoroughly immoral Devika Singh. As Superintendent of Police Vishwanath Sharma begins to sift through the hidden secrets of Devika Singh’s life, it becomes evident that everyone who knew her seems to have a clear-cut motive for killing her. Faced with the investigation of a crime that appears to have as many suspects as there are motives, Vishwanath Sharma probes the sinister web spun around a tangle of lies and deception.
I’m a huge fan of mystery novels, if you haven’t noticed already, so I was quite thrilled to pick this book up. Neena is an extremely talented writer. The story flowed so nicely with the descriptions of emotions and locations being so intricate. There’s a little thought that goes into this book when you read it so it’s not an easy pick-up read for pleasure. The names took me a bit to get used to only because I’m not used to reading names from Indian culture. I throughly enjoyed it through the end as it kept me on the edge of my seat.
You can find this book on Amazon or Barnes and Nobles or simply find it here!
