A Timely Vision by Joyce and Jim Lavene is the first book in the new “Missing Pieces” mystery series. Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime (Penguin), May 2010
Meet Dae O’Donnell, a woman with a gift for finding lost things. Sometimes it leads to lost keys or earrings—and sometimes it leads to murder.
The mayor of Duck, North Carolina, Dae O’Donnell wears many hats. She’s the ceremonial ribbon cutter, champion of the local turtle population, and the person everyone turns to when they’ve lost something. One tough and Dae can find it, and missing pieces seem to find their way to her, whether she wants them to or not.
When town matriarch Miss Mildred seeks out Dae to help find her missing watch, Dae’s vision leads her straight into a murder investigation. Now she must prove that Miss Mildred isn’t a cold-blooded killer. With the help of town newbie and retired FBI agent Kevin Brickman, Dae sets out to prove Mildred’s innocence—hoping she won’t become Duck’s next missing piece.
We are introduced to Dae who finds lost items and unfortunately found a body attached. With the help of an ex-FBI agent, Dae gathers clues to help prove the primary suspect’s innocence. This was a good read and I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. My rating: 4 stars
