Book Review: Always Look Twice by Elizabeth Goddard
Crime scene photographer Harper is taking a well-deserved mental health break from her job and photographing wildlife in remote Wyoming when she accidentally witnesses a murder - and catches the whole thing on camera. Fleeing in fear of her own life, she runs into Heath, a local ranch owner who she knew as a child before her family moved away from the area.
Things get complicated when local law enforcement can’t find a body, Harper’s lost camera or any trace that a crime has even been committed. Heath believes Harper, but he seems to be the only one… and then the bombs start going off.
There’s a lot going on in this story and it was possibly a bit too much for a romantic suspense, because at the end of the story I realized while we knew who the murderer was, we never actually really found out why he killed the woman whose death Harper witnesses at the opening. That death didn’t fit with the rest of the pattern explained to us, and we didn’t really get an insight into the murderer’s psyche, why he committed certain crimes, why he took a significant break and then why he started killing again. I enjoyed Heath and Harper’s story but there were a few too many elements skimmed over on the suspense side of things for me to really love this. Four stars.
Always Look Twice is available now.
