Description

When aspiring writer Dr. Myaisha Douglas joins the Greensboro Women of Color Writing Group, in the hopes of writing a novel, she never imagines taking on the role of amateur sleuth in a real-life murder mystery.

When a friend, and member of the group, turns up dead, Myaisha believes she can help the police solve the crime. As an avid reader of mysteries, she feels confident that all of those stories have left her with the skills to find the killer. And, she’s also determined to see her friend’s murderer brought to justice.

However, the amateur detective soon regrets getting involved when her friend’s corruption and illegal dealings come to light. And, when their prime suspect ends up dead, the police warn Myaisha to stay off the case. Just as it looks like her investigation is over, the doctor is drawn back into the case when another member of the group becomes suspect number one.

Using her knowledge of medicine, and years as an armchair detective, can Myaisha deliver the murderer to the authorities or will she become victim number three?

Murder is Revealing is the perfect title for this Write Club Mystery book, by Michelle Corbier. In this exciting novel, Dr. Myaisha Douglas’s world is thrown for a loop when a long-time friend is suddenly murdered. Unable to ignore all of the questions surfacing in her mind, Myaisha decides to put on her sleuthing fedora and investigate. It turns out that death can reveal a lot about someone that you think you know well.

Myaisha, a doctor, aspiring writer, and avid mystery fan, soon discovers some unsavory tidbits about her dear friend that she once sincerely trusted. Despite being warned off by the police detectives on the case, Myaisha can’t help but follow her instincts until she finds out the truth—however ugly it is. Myaisha was widowed 5 years prior. But with a little encouragement from her best friend Deniece, she begins to open her heart to a persistent handsome suitor, AJ, who turns out to be more helpful than just as a distraction from the murder case.

This is a very exciting, stimulating, and creative mystery novel with a great storyline. It is an urban mystery, set in Greensboro, North Carolina. Michelle Corbier employs her unique expressive writing style to describe the setting in a most wonderful and vivid manner as to draw the reader into the story with all their senses absorbing every little detail of the surroundings as the mysterious story unfolds. She also carefully writes with the reader in mind and does not leave anything out. She allows the reader entry into Myaisha’s thoughts, the murder victim’s, and that of the other interesting and intriguing characters, such as the murder victim’s spouse and the two detectives working on the case. The writing pace is easy and steady, which kept me glued to the pages from start to finish. Perfectly narrated and conceived, the story is packed with plenty of surprises, twists and uncovering of clues at just the right moments. Myaisha’s character is balanced, smart, laid-back, and likable. Never jumping to conclusions, she is constantly using her spot-on profound observations, medical knowledge, common sense, and her experience from reading mystery novels, along with her Greensboro Women of Color Writing Group club members - to continue to keep her moving forward and lead her to her next clues and steps.

Murder is Revealing contains a determined, intelligent and perceptive main character, a stimulating, thought-provoking and clever plot, and a taste of modern-day adventure that will leave you wanting more. It is a fantastic and well-written Write Club Mystery book. Murder is Revealing will keep you guessing until the end, and of course, like any exceptional and ingenious mystery, the killer (or killers) is never who you think it is.

Murder Is Revealing: Write Club Mysteries by Michelle Corbier is an extraordinary mystery novel and comes highly recommended by Chick Lit Café."
