Lethal Lifestyles by LynDee Walker is the sixth book in the “Nichelle Clarke Headlines in Heels” mystery series. Publisher: Henery Press, September 2016
Wedding bells are ringing at the Richmond Telegraph, and maid of honor Nichelle Clarke is determined to give her friends the perfect fairytale beginning to their happily ever after. So when a corpse crashes rehearsal weekend, Nichelle ditches her wedding coordinator shoes for her crime reporter ones, and a little poking around turns up a big problem: the victim and the groom have a history, and it’s not a pretty one.
Evidence against groom Grant Parker piles up, leaving Nichelle wishing a hostile bridesmaid was still her biggest worry as she tries to fend off Richmond’s favorite TV reporter—and her own scheming publisher. At odds with the cops, her beloved editor, and the ticking clock, Nichelle races to uncover the truth and save the day before this perfect wedding turns into a funeral.
LynDee consistently entertains me with each subsequent book in her long-running series. This was a fast-paced and feet on the ground action-packed drama where the multi-plot storyline boasted a bevy of suspects and twists and turns that adds to the betterment of this tale. The mystery was nicely done with narrative that supported the character’s behavior as one by one, each played a pivotal role where the author made directional changes that continually teased me throughout the reading of this book. I like the tone and the writing style of the author that makes this an easy and comfortable read and the author never loses steps with the character development that enables me to build a continuing relationship with Nichelle and her associates. The scenes towards the end quickened my reading pace and the ending was pure heaven. This is one of the best book in this endearing series and I look forward to more exciting adventures with Nichelle.
