Review by Serena Soape:
A.M. Ialacci has written a captivating mystery that had me wondering all the way to the end – whodunit….. and yes I was totally surprised when I found out who the culprit was!
“Lenses, Lust and Murder” was a well written novel with easy-to-like characters.
The main character, Allie does a phenomenal job working hard to crack the case of the murder at Cape Lookout Lighthouse.
Allies’s brother Ryan was one of my favorite characters. They had a very special relationship that was a key factor in solving the murder.
I have read all of A.M. Ialacci’s books and have enjoyed them all. These are definitely action-packed, unexpected and will keep you turning the pages.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for fair and honest review.
Review By Phyllis Jones Pisanelli:
The new book by A.M. Ialacci called “Lenses, Lust and Murder” was an interesting book in a few ways. Her writing flow was easy and something you didn’t have to think about. I learned a little about autism along the way without me realizing it.
I fell in love with the characters. Allie is the main character with a brother on the autism spectrum and he has a sweet little girlfriend named Frankie. I wanted to be their friend and live in their town. I think you will love these characters as much as I do.
The murder story at the center of the book is intriguing. I was drawn in by all the suspects lying and covering up for each other. I just didn’t see how they would ever unravel the lies and find out what really happened. I just had to keep reading to find out how it all worked out.
I hope there is going to be a sequel to this book because I loved it so much and want too know more about these characters and where life takes them.
