Three Days to Forever Review & Giveaway

3:00 AM Unknown 1 Comments

For most people, getting ready for their wedding is stressful, but for Mac and Archie it’s more like a nightmare. While most people are fighting off wedding day jitters, Mac, his soon to be mother in law and his friend/groomsman Joshua are fighting off a hit squad that has been sent to kill them. With the wedding just a few days away our characters are left racing against time to find out who is behind the hit and why so that Mac can meet Archie at the alter for what is expected to be the social event of the year.

This is the second book by Lauren Carr that I have read and I have to say that I am becoming quite the fan.  Because this is book 9 in the Mac Faraday series I was slightly worried that I would have a hard time following along, but that wasn’t an issue at all. Even for a late starter in the series it easy to keep up with the characters and I love that Lauren includes what is best described as an opening credits for the characters that also includes a short biography for each individual.   

She has a great writing style that flows well and does a wonderful job at keeping you guessing and she certainly knows how to play up the suspense. While some situations were a bit unbelievable, there were so many twists and turns that it was impossible to get bored and I found myself consumed by the story line and couldn’t bring myself to put it down.

Book Description for Three Days Forever (A Mac Faraday Mystery):

In this latest Mac Faraday Mystery from best-selling mystery author Lauren Carr, readers will embark on a rollercoaster adventure with old friends (including the Lovers in Crime team of Prosecutor Joshua Thornton and Homicide Detective Cameron Gates), but also meet new ones as Mac Faraday’s daughter Jessica Faraday and Joshua Thornton’s son Murphy Thornton join the team in the race to get the love birds to the altar!

With three days left to the year, Deep Creek Lake is hopping with holiday vacationers and wedding guests pouring into the Spencer Inn for Mac Faraday and Archie Monday’s huge wedding ceremony which is being touted as the social event of the year.

But droopy flowers and guests who failed to RSVP are the least of Mac’s and Archie’s problems when a professional hit squad hits Spencer Manor to send the groom, Joshua Thornton, Archie’s mother, and Gnarly running for their lives.

With time running out to the big day, Mac Faraday and Spencer’s small police force have to sort through the clues to figure out not only who has been targeted for assassination, but also who is determined to stop everything … FOREVER!
