ACTS OF LOVE

Rating: 3 Cups
Amanda is forty something and lives above the aromatherapy shop that she owns. A divorcee, she has many friends and two cats. Her relationship with a police detective is starting to lean towards the romantic and she is not sure that she is ready.
Yazz is a police detective whose instincts have led to the solution of many crimes. His multiracial background and spirituality appeal to Amanda.
Two of the area’s least favorite citizens are found dead on the same day and in nearly the same place. Did Karla Ellsworth and Leon Diehl have more in common than the obvious? Yazz is determined to find out. Amanda is very close to Karla’s son and her guilty secret from the past may affect her relationships with those around her.
This is a well written cozy with a different theme. I learned more about aromatherapy than I knew before and Amanda and Yazz are unusual and appealing characters. The author is a deft hand with a mystery and kept me guessing while Amanda worries about her past and its repercussions. The characters and setting are well described and the plot is very involving. This is an author to look out for.
