Virtue Falls by Christina Dodd

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

An author whose work I have been wanting to read for a very long time. I love the romantic suspense genre and this rightly fills the bill. Elizabeth is a geologist who is socially inept and brutally honest to a fault. Garik is her ex husband who has been suspended from FBI. By adding a serial killer to the murder mystery of Elizabeth’s mother, the whole plot took an unexpected turn. Of course there are quite a lot of clues to keep the reader entertained and have to say I was thoroughly engrossed even though one can fairly guess the killer.

The effects of earthquake on a community and the resilience of people to continue fighting in spite of the hardships was inspiring to read. Also the part of Charles and his suffering was deeply moving.

Looking forward to read more from this author.
