Summary

Megan Cahill might soon be making the news instead of writing it.

Newspaper editor Megan Cahill loves red pens, clean prose, and fast cars. When a friend is murdered, Meg sets a trap to snare the killer. The bait? One steamed editor with a razor-sharp pen. Only one person stands in her way, a stubborn police detective.

Death is no stranger to Detective Rod Kelter. Two years ago, death stole his family, and the press stole his privacy. To solve a murder, he must join forces with Megan Cahill, but someone wants the smart-mouthed editor dead. Megan and Rod race to unmask a murderer before he writes the final chapter of Meg's life - in blood.

Everybody is weak at some time ...even you.

Another murder in not-so-sleepy Otter Creek, this time involving another of the triplets, Megan. She is the writer- reporter sister and was assaulted, though not seriously hurt, whilst meeting her close friend and daughter in law to Senator Drake, late at night in the woods. sherry, her friend, was not so lucky. She was shot dead before being able to ell Megan why she had wanted the meeting.
With fears for her safety, and aware of her sometimes aggressive reporting techniques, long time resident and officer in charge of the investigation, Rod, forbids her to do her own snooping this time. Does she take this to heart? Well, not really. And as his concern, and irritation, for her grows, so does his feeling of love.

An enjoyable, gentle romance entwining the unexpected and apparently pointless murder mystery, made more difficult in a small town where most people know each other, again nicely narrated by Christina Fuller Yeun. Having previously read, and enjoyed, the first book in the series, I requested a copy of Written in Blood from the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom, and was very fortunate in being freely gifted a complimentary copy. Thank you. These books are completely stand alone although the pleasure of revisiting characters met in earlier books is a bonus. They are suitable for anyone to read, without overt sex or graphic violence.

Great listen

Even though the newspaper editor was somewhat stereotypical, (feisty, sassy, no nonsense), the story was totally fun to listen to. Responses were a little predictable, but knowing that, and it was still great fun to listen to, says the author is excellent. True in this case.

Great Mystery Romance

I have really enjoyed the Otter Creek series. This is the third one and I enjoyed it just as much as the first two books if not a little more then them. The author does a great job keeping the mystery going and throws in a clean romance. This was a story I had a hard time putting down and the narrator did a fantastic job to which only made it more fun to listen.

Stalker

mystery, murder, romance, suspense, reporter, law-enforcement, twisty, stalker

Small town journalist agreed to meet with friend/source in the middle of the night in the woods. The journalist gets tased, abraded, and concussed, but the other woman is murdered. Local detective takes it all personally, as does the journalist, and the killer stalks the one that got away. Lots of twists and red herrings, fraught romance, and suspense to keep the reader up late reading!
Kristina Fuller Yuen is excellent as narrator and really knows how to make the characters even more real!

Twists and turns

Greed, power, murder, and family secrets all make for a great mystery novel!
Meg is a tenacious character and a force to be reckoned with.

Kristina Fuller Yuen did a good job narrating. She new her characters well.

5 star story, 4 star narration

This book has wonderful characters, great suspense, and a lovely romance. The narration is very good but some of the male voices don't "fit" real well for me. Still very good and I love it.

The fiery journalist & the broken cop

Meg Cahill, the headstrong, no-nonsense one of the triplets, finds herself the eyewitness to her bff murder...sort of. Rod Kelter, the broken police detective, is working on the case. When Meg’s life is threatened, Rod is her self-appointed protector. Will Rod be able to keep Meg safe while solving the case? Or will Meg’s journalistic side make her more of a target. This book is my favorite in the series, by far. The chemistry between Rod & Meg was palpable and, at times, hilarious. They made a great team & great story.
