Indie Author Nenny May though quite young writes psychological and legal thrillers, romantic suspense and mystery novels. Her books are nail-biting page-turners. Her titles include Missing, The Perfect Father, and Miller Avenue Murder that is due to release September 15th, 2021.
Nenny May is currently in the works of attaining a degree in Law. She lives with her parents and two siblings in a cozy home in a small sleepy town where she continues to weave her words for her audience.
Tillamook county, Northwest Oregon had been lulled, a slumber gradually trailing the brisk night when an unthinkable tragedy sends a tremor through the district. Blake Campbell an antique storekeeper had been found lacerated in a threadbare wedding dress in the heart of her late husband’s home on Miller Avenue.
And four women find themselves tied to the investigation.
Detective Rachel Olson believes it’s a wedding night gone wrong. Criminal law professor Claire Fisher thinks it’s the ex-wife. Psychologist Lisa Patterson is convinced it’s the disturbed son. And District Attorney Regan Sinclair has her money on the governor.
Four perspectives and a killer on the loose.
Nenny May brought a stunning whodunnit with a bit of romance, and kept me guessing until the final pages. I love when a book makes it difficult to guess the killer, and Miller Avenue Murder makes it near impossible. I never could have figured it out.
I did enjoy the multiple perspectives, though I found it a bit hard to follow at times. Rachel Olson was probably my favorite character to read.
The victim being found stabbed to death in a wedding dress added to the mystery of this story. Why would a woman who clearly had no reason to wear a gown be murdered in one? I like that Nenny May brought something unique in this story.
I just going to make a brief comment on the sexual content – I didn’t really feel that it brought much to the story, but I’m never really a fan of sex scenes. Some people may enjoy reading it, but it’s just not for me. The scene was well-written and descriptive.
I was impressed by Nenny May’s Miller Avenue Murder. It is a well-crafted mystery that will keep readers guessing until the end. I can’t wait to see what happens next in the Campbell Murder Series!
I received an advanced review copy of this book for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
