“Reason To Die” by Debbie De Louise - IHIBRP 5-Star Book Review

A Shocking & Suspenseful Stunner—Guaranteed!

It’s up to Detective Courtney Lang and her ex-partner/former lover, who is now wheelchair-bound and suffering from PTSD, to solve a series of murders involving disabled people—former victims of unsolved muggings by the same masked man that shot Bill on the anniversary of his proposal. Things are further complicated when Courtney engages in a romantic fling and break-up with her new partner, Mark. Can they all work together to solve these crimes, or will one of them botch up the investigation for good?

De Louise sets up an absorbing thriller for mystery and romance fans in “Reason To Die”. Her small-town, close-knit community of Baxter, Connecticut works well to narrow the scope of her detectives’ investigation while providing readers with a wide range of suspects and witnesses that need to be screened. The dynamics of the relationship between Courtney, Bill, and Mark is both curious and compelling with their constant tug of war for control and power, but the tautness of this story is balanced by just the right amount of humor and humanity to allow the reader a break in this otherwise emotional roller coaster of a read.

It’s hard to pull oneself away from reading “Reason To Die” all in one sitting since the leads are compelling, the characters are engaging, and the urgency to solve the riddle lying at the heart of the story is driven. This is a great take-along novel for a weekend getaway or a cozy evening by the hearth. I highly recommend this tale for the adult reader who loves to follow clues, profile murderers, and solve crimes—Even if you’re adept at all three, the ending is a shocking stunner... Guaranteed.

Congratulations to the author on this award-winning story! This novel will be permanently featured on my website at under IHIBRP 5 Star Recommended Reads!
