Without a Doubt (A Carol Childs Mystery)
Cozy Mystery
3rd in Series
Henery Press (May 24, 2016)
Paperback: 258 pages


As radio reporter Carol Childs investigates a series of Beverly Hills jewelry heists, she realizes her FBI boyfriend, Eric, is working the same case. Even worse, she may have inadvertently helped the suspect escape. The situation intensifies when the suspect calls the radio station during a live broadcast, baiting Carol deeper into the investigation.

In order for her to uncover the truth, Carol must choose between her job and her personal relationships. What started out as coincidence between Carol and Eric becomes a race for the facts—pitting them against one another—before the thieves can pull off a daring escape, leaving a trail of dead bodies behind, and taking the jewels with them.

Related subjects include: women sleuths, murder mystery series, whodunit mysteries (whodunnit), book club recommendations, suspense, noir.

There is something about this series that I really enjoy. I don’t know if I can put my finger on anything specific but I have enjoyed each book that I have read and wonder what news reporter Carol Childs will get involved with next.

I like that Carol isn’t afraid to search for the truth using her investigative skills as a “cub” reporter for a chick-lit news station, they don’t report the gruesome news but do keep their listeners informed. She does have a young son and her love interest is Eric who is a FBI agent.

The mystery in this book is a little different as no one was meant to die, at least not initially. The thief also reaches out to Carol and seems to have some sort of connection to her and that is what helps her figure out part of the mystery.
