Hand of Fate by Lis Wiehl and April Henry. 2010, Thomas Nelson Publishers. This story follows three friends and colleagues as they investigate the murder of a talk-show host. Shocking turns and white-knuckle escapades make this a riveting novel from start to finish.
Honestly, I did not expect to like this book. Lis Wiehl was an unfamiliar author to me and I was skeptical about reading yet another murder mystery by yet another obscure writer. (I’ve since discovered that Wiehl and Henry are not so obscure.) The story had me hooked from the first page and I read the whole book in one day. I was pulled right into the lives of Cassidy, Nicole and Allison, and found myself holding my breath at each turn of events. Hand of Fate is well-constructed, professionally written, and a darn good story. Loved it! I’ll be recommending this one to my bookstore customers.
