Cropped to Death by Christina Freeburn
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I enjoyed this well written mystery featuring Faith a young woman that was framed for murder by her con man fiancé while they were both in the Air Force. She was exonerated in that case, but can't forget the feelings of being accused of a crime she didn't commit and being betrayed by someone she loved.
Now she is back home in a small West Virginia town working in her grandmothers' scrap booking store. An innocent friend and coworker is accused of murdering her estranged husband. Faith is determined to prove her friend's innocence and sets off on a rather bumbling investigation.
The mystery part of the story is enhanced by Faith's two romantic interests, the investigating police detective and her neighbor, a prosecuting attorney. The other secondary characters are well developed and endearing.
This book would benefit from a good proofreader. The word omissions, and grammatical errors were too many.
I would recommend this author and book to anyone looking for a light read.
