Wow! This was absolutely amazing and truly unlike any other mystery that I ve read before. I m going to try to go through this without giving everything away so here while still telling you everything I love about it and not making it pages and pages long. So here goes. Linda weaves an amazing tale of murder and mystery and suspense with characters that are themselves weaved into the plot. She spends time developing said characters in a way that you both hate, love, and want to know so much more about them and just have to keep reading. Also, I found her format so interested. For instance, you first hear from the point of view of the witness to the crime then the detective then the crime itself and so on. Like I said, I don t want to give away everything. I will say in closing that Linda has created another winner. Murdered Twice is absolutely positively in a class all its own. --Amazon Reviews: Max Stone
At 1st I admit I was wondering about the story telling at the beginning of the book. It is not something I am use to however, very quickly I was addicted and couldn't put this book down! The author does a fantastic job of descripting the Florida town and its cast of characters. You feel as if you are there.The more into the story you get the more you connect with the characters. However, Ms Gerald doesn't stop there. She weaves a story within a story and a shocking twist to the conclusion. I've never read this author before but she is definitely on my watch list. I received a copy for my honest review. --Amazon Reviews: Bookworm
Linda Gerald is a amazing story teller. She makes you feel like part of the story. I recommend buying this book. --Amazon Reviews: Lisa Lynn Mawyer
