To Murder a Saint by Nicole Loughan

imagesI first learned about To Murder a Saint when I read Rebecca’s review on it and I was interested. When I saw it was free on Amazon kindle I picked it up, but I only got a chance to read this novella recently.  Fanchon and Josephine are two young girls from the Bayou who recently moved to New York City.  When Fanchon returns home from a date she went on, she found her roommate brutally murdered.  Fanchon helps the detective in the case to solve her murder and he accompanies her back to her hometown to search for a suspect. At first it seems like it’s the work of a wild animal (which I never believed) but it turns out that I, just like the detective, started suspecting one of the two men that were suspects in the beginning of the case. It was quite a surprise to me to learn who really killed her. This story was a quick enjoyable read and I was completely engrossed into finding out who the killer is. I believe this is part of a series, so I hope to read more of Nicole Loughan!

You can read Allison’s review on it too, here.  Do you read novellas? Which are your favourites?
