Cause of Death by Sheri Lewis Wohl


This one is more crime than romance. In fact there is very little romance. There is crime, some vague paranormal stuff and stumbling-upon-a-sibling-never-knew-the-existence-of with paranormal abilities running in the DNA.

Vi Akiak moves from Alaska to Spokane as an intern medical examiner and to complete her studies. Her new landlady is Kate Renard, a burnt-out computer whiz now managing a farm and also a volunteer K9 handler. On the very first day of Vi’s internship, a murder victim turns up. And then another. And another. All with missing eyes. And one of them has been arranged exactly like Vi’s murdered mother was. A couple of the bodies are found by Kate.

Here is the strange thing. In the scenes between Vi and Kate, there was great chemistry and very well written attraction. Yet, in the overall narrative, the romance track just didn’t flow. And the weirdest thing was that we never see their first kiss. We know it happened when the MCs are thinking back about it. Why?

The crime track was chilling at first, soon repetitive and the big discovery and solution were flat. And yeah, towards the end, Kate and her bumbling PI efforts were terribly irritating.

Overall, this is not something to grab and sink into.
