‘Circle of Vengeance’ (A Star Cavanaugh Cold Case) by Ramona Richards

About The Book
Revenge is best served cold–and this family has been waiting decades to dish it up
Twenty-five years ago, a body was discovered in the Turney family barn–and folks around town were all too ready to believe that killing blood ran through all the Turney’s veins. Every member of the family came under suspicion, their reputations crumbled to pieces, and with no convictions, no one could be cleared.

Daughter Jill, now a Chicago lawyer, is ready for this case to be solved and for her broken family to be repaired at last. Who better to find the answers than cold-case P.I. Star Cavanaugh? But as Star begins to dig into generations-old secrets, the killer resurfaces to make sure none of those skeletons leave the closet–no matter what the cost.

As the danger mounts, Star again joins forces with police chief, Mike Luinetti, and begins to uncover truths that the whole town has kept hidden. But becoming the target of the determined killer isn’t the way Star wants to find the answers. It’s a race to solve the case before it becomes a matter of her life or death.

Readers will love jumping back into the Star Cavanaugh Cold Case series as their favorite plucky heroine drives her vintage Airstream home straight into the heart of another town’s mystery.

About Ramona Richards
I come from a long line of storytellers, and I grew up sitting on the front porch listening to my parents, grandparents, and a wide selection of aunts and uncles spinning yarns that would raise eyebrows and disturb sleep. Naturally, I wanted to do it for a living.
I love stories and books and readers and listeners, and I’m blessed to have been able to spend my life around them. These days, I’m a speaker, writer, and editor, and my latest book is My Mother’s Quilts (Worthy Publishing), which is a devotional written about and around the quilts I inherited from my mother. My latest is a small-town crime novel, Murder in the Family. I’ve written six novels for Love Inspired Suspense, and have devotionals available from Abingdon and Barbour Books.
I’m the associate publisher for Iron Stream Media, although I’ve been an editor for Abingdon Press, Thomas Nelson, Rutledge Hill Press, and Ideals magazine. I’ve freelanced for more than a dozen other publishers and have edited more than 500 publications, including fiction, trade nonfiction, magazines, scripts, poetry, Bibles and biblical reference works, study guides, curriculum, and how-to manuals.
Essentially, I’ll write or edit just about anything. I’m also a speaker for writer’s conferences and women’s groups.
I can be found online at Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, and my blog is at https://thefridgefront.blogspot.com/

My Rating: 5 Stars!
‘God sometimes drops you into some odd places. You may not understand at the time, but he does not make mistakes.’

When I read Burying Daisy Doe, I knew I wanted to read more by Ramona Richards. Her Star Cavanaugh cold case stories are incredibly fascinating to this suspense lover. They start out with a little info and Richards slowly begins adding layers, a bit at a time ramping up the reader’s excitement until you are completely hooked. Actually, you’re hooked from the beginning.

Richards is a fine hand at these split time stories and she always brings them to a most satisfying close. I racked my brain trying to figure it all out and never did. Well, I did figure out one tiny part, which was revealed quite soon, but the ending took me completely by surprise. And I love the relationship between Michael and Star. I sure hope the author does more in this series. Well done!

My thanks to the author and publisher for a copy of this book. The opinion here is my own.
