Recently, I read Miranda Warning by author Heather Gilbert. This is Heather’s second book. Her first book was a Viking historical, God’s Daughter.
Miranda Warning is a mystery/suspense novel set in West Virginia; it’s the first in Gilbert’s A Murder in the Mountains series.
Tess Spencer, a young married woman, befriends an elderly woman named Miranda. When Miranda receives a written warning presumably from a dead woman named Rose, Tess takes it seriously and begins to investigate, delving deeper into the past. The novel’s chapters alternate between two points of view: Tess (first person, present) and Rose (third person, past), with the stories diverging and syncing up in the present at the end of the book.
Gilbert has spent her time crafting and editing this story; her writing is very poetic, descriptive, and unique. The novel was well written and included several twists and turns, and the characters were well developed. If you love a good mystery, this is for you.
Please note that I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.
