Book Review: Hand Of Fate by Lis Wiehl

I love reading books, and although I may not be as fast as the average, I still manage to get in a book a month or a little more. I can read a book on average in about 3 weeks. I like Crime Drama books and although they're not at the top of my list, they are a favorite. I got pretty excited when I got the chance to review Lis Wiehl's Hand Of Fate to review on my blog.

The book centers on 3 friends, (one a crime reporter, one a federal prosecutor, and the other an FBI agent) as they work together to solve the death of radio talk show personality, Jim Fate.  His death prompted panic in the city of Portland, OR, as terrorism was suspected. 

This book was a quick read for me. I read it in under 2 weeks, which I probably could've done it in a couple days, but between the blog, a toddler, Jon and life in general it took a bit longer! Plus we've been rebuilding our porch and installing light fixtures outside for a little while now, so that took some time out of reading.

This was a fairly decent book and the ending really surprised me. I like when they have a surprise ending because it changes the ENTIRE book.

I also like when a book like this is actually something that could happen in real life. Some horrors aren't even that good. This is a good story and it really is something I could see happening in real life.

I'd give this book a 3.5 out of 5. It's definitely not the best out there, but it was a good read. 

Disclosure: I received this book from Thomas nelson publisher's Booksneeze website. It was for the soul purpose or reviewing it on my blog!
