About the Book


 

Book:  Choir Loft Murder

Author: Karen Randau

Genre: Mystery Suspense

Release date: August 24, 2021

In book 3 of the Frankie Shep Suspense Novellas, a member of the church choir dies during rehearsal, and the apparent murder weapon—a blowgun—implicates the man Frankie loves. She’s shocked to discover Quint was a champion at the sport before he accepted the senior pastor role at the church. And he’s refusing to talk about his fate.

Her investigation reveals that Quint isn’t the only person with the skill to hit a woman’s carotid artery while she’s singing a high note, and Frankie is convinced someone is framing Quint. The closer she gets to proving it, the more she faces a stalker’s deadly wrath.

Can Frankie save herself and the man she loves from becoming the next victims?

More from Karen

Since Choir Loft Murder is the third book in the Frankie Shep Suspense Novellas series, I wanted to show how Frankie has grown through the series—from broken woman who is angry at God for allowing the deaths of family into a strong and happy woman who relies on God to help her through an unusually tough life.

She has shown her grit in all three novels in the series, and this one shows how she has grown through the adversity life has thrown at her.

In writing Choir Loft Murder, I wanted to show that ordinary people usually are stronger and more resilient than they know.

My Thoughts

Choir Loft Murder is the third book in the Frankie Shep Suspense Novellas series. While I believe enough background is given that you probably could enjoy this just fine as a standalone, I must say that having read just one of the previous books definitely helped me to better understand the characters at the start of this one, and as such I'd probably recommend checking them out first anyway! 

The action in the story takes you by surprise right from the very start. Truly, I read a lot of murder mysteries... but I have to say the idea of death by a blow dart was quite unique and already set this one apart from the rest... just one of the many things that did! It had a unique tone about it that certainly kept things interesting throughout with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing through to the end. As a novella, it was a very quick read but didn't feel too rushed as novellas sometimes do. Overall, I found it to be a really unique story and one that fans of Christian suspense are sure to want to check out for themselves.
