About the book: Donte Noble has the life he's always dreamed of: a beautiful fiancee and a bright future as a doctor. But in a shattering turn of events, his future is ripped away. He is the number-one suspect in a murder case—and for everyone involved, including his fiancee, Donte is guilty until proven innocent. He's been framed. With the very real threat of conviction, he is left with no choice: he runs.
Living as a nomad, Donte crisscrosses the country, his new persona allowing him to hide in plain sight as he searches for an answer to his plight. That answer comes in the form of bestselling mystery writer Clive Granger, a man who believes the unbelievable—and as farfetched as Donte's story sounds, Clive is irrevocably drawn into the young man's quest to clear his name. As the ambitious duo embarks on their investigation, they begin to uncover a shocking trail of secrets, leading them to a killer who will stop at nothing to hide the truth...
My review: Clair Poulson is one of my very favorite mystery writers. His books are amazing. I love his characters, plot, and there is always an awesome twist at the end. This book is another great one. Donte is a really great character to be in the mind of. You can really sense his desperation to remain hidden so that he can't be arrested for a murder that he didn't commit. His sister Sara is great too, I love how hard she's had to work to help keep Donte hidden. Then there's Clive, a genuinely nice guy who happened to be able to help a man who appears to be down on his luck, and he's also a mystery novel writer and aspiring PI. I loved this book! The mystery was really well done, and I have to say I was really surprised at the end to find who the real murderer was. Oh and I forgot to mention there is also a touch of a sweet romance story thrown in to keep things interesting. And as always, this book is super clean. Make sure to check it out!
I was able to borrow this book from my local library.
