Hand of Fate (A Triple Threat Novel) 
Book Review
In this second triple threat novel, a trio of strong female characters who formed a bond of friendship in the first novel of this series are back.  One of the women is much closer to the investigation than she would like, having been close enough to the victim to be considered as a suspect herself if she isn’t careful.  The other two ladies are dealing with their own struggles, one has an ugly event from the past resurface and the other handles a personal crisis with grace, thanks to her strong faith.  A faith that isn’t shared by her two friends … just yet.  I applaud the authors for their ability to create a thrilling story, full of plot twists and an array of possible villains, yet keeping the personal stories moving along for their three main characters.  Their friendship grows tighter. We are able to see how events in their lives have shaped their characters, and how the faith of a friend can inspire hope in the lives of their friends – even if they don’t quite understand it.

This is one murder investigation that keeps you guessing right up until the end.  There are so many possible killers … This novel is fast-paced and SO easy to get sucked in and unable to put it down!

Book Cover Review

The large block letters featuring the main author and title are pretty typical of this genre when the publisher is hoping the author is well-known enough that their name alone will assist in selling the book. The size of the letters, the bright red color against the flat black background, and the varnished surface definitely attract the eye of the reader first. But beyond the letters is the image of a pale-faced woman.  Who is she?  Her fly away hair, dark make up and watchful eye have you guessing from the very first page … Is she one of the women in the triple threat club?  She’s not the victim and there is no widow … so, is she the killer? The author keeps you guessing on that until almost the very end.

Mysterious and thought-provoking – the cover captures your attention and promotes its own sense of mystery before you even turn the page.  It fits the genre, and should appeal to both men and women alike with the design style and also includes some great quotes from well-known reviewers that should also help make the book sell very well. This cover is doing it’s job, and should help this second triple threat novel become another best seller.
