Hush Money by T.E. Woods
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Thanks to Netgalley and Random House for the ARC Kindle e-book of Hush Money: Hush Money Mystery #1 by T.E. Woods
Sydney a fearless and determined entrepreneur opens two restaurants in her hometown of Madison, Wisconsin. Her mother worked in the food industry all of her life and both of their lives were changed by the death of Sydney's father who was a police officer.
Although the opening night of both restaurants; one fine-dining (Hush Money) and the attached (Ten Ten) cop bar are a hit with the community, it turns murderous.
As the main suspect in the homicide of the Mayor of Madison, Sydney is tossed into a mixer of intrigue and mystery, finding clues and friendship in unlikely places.
Will Sydney lose everything including her freedom? Will her father's old buddies in blue turn out to be friends or foes?
The first in a series, the writing is good, subplots move the story along, building the narrative and setting the reader up for a wild and twisty ride.
I have recommended this for our library collection and in reader's advisory.
