Review: Vines of Entanglement by Lisa Cox Carter


About the book:
A tangled web of lies characterizes the life Laura Mabry has built for herself and her son after the tragic death of her husband. But Laura’s carefully constructed world slides off its axis when she stumbles upon the body of a young college student on the recreational trails of Raleigh’s Greenway. What’s worse, Detective Jon Locklear is Laura’s worst nightmare...and her dream come true.

Jon has spent years trying to forget Laura. Past experience has taught him that he can’t trust her, but old habits—like old loves—die hard. When the killer turns his attention on Laura, Jon may be the only one who can save her.

Truth and murder lurk just around the corner for Laura. Can she find the courage to face her deepest fears and unravel the lies of her past before she and her son become the Greenway Killer’s next victims.

My thoughts:

Lisa Carter is a new-to-me author, so I didn't really have any expectations for Vines of Entanglement when starting it. The story took a while to grab my attention and I was never really engrossed in it, but it was still a nice mystery.

I liked the characters and how grace and mercy were key elements in the story. I also thought that while the mystery was predictable at times, there were some surprising moments.

Overall, I liked Vines of Entanglement and am glad I read it. Despite being a slower read, it was a nice story. If you enjoy mystery novels, I think you might enjoy this book -- especially if you like stories set in the South.
