Book Description:

What started out as the worst day of Mac Faraday’s life would end up being a new beginning. After a messy divorce hearing, the last person that Mac wanted to see was another lawyer. Yet, this lawyer wore the expression of a child bursting to tell his secret. This confidence would reveal Mac as heir to undreamed of fortunes, and lead him to the birthplace of America’s Queen of Mystery and an investigation that will unfold like one of her famous mystery novels.

Soon after she moves to Deep Creek Lake, Maryland, Katrina Singleton learns that life in an exclusive community is not all good. For some unknown reason, a strange man calling himself “Pay Back” begins stalking her. When Katrina is found strangled all evidence points to her terrorist, who is nowhere to be found.

Three months later, the file on her murder is still open when Mac Faraday, sole heir to his unknown birth mother’s home and fortune, moves into the estate next door. Little does he know as he drives up to Spencer Manor that he is driving into a closed gate community that is hiding more suspicious deaths than his DC workload as a homicide detective. With the help of his late mother’s journal, this retired cop puts all his detective skills to work to pick up where the local investigators have left off to follow the clues to Katrina’s executer.

My Review: 

It’s Murder, My Son begins Mac Faraday Mysteries series by Lauren Carr. Readers are introduced to former homicide investigator, Mac Faraday. While trying to get by following a difficult and messy divorce, he discovers that his birth mother is a famous author, Robin Spencer. She passes away and leaves her fortune and home in Spencer to him. When he arrives in town to claim his inheritance, Mac finds out about the horrific, tragic and unsolved murder of Katrina Singleton, a wealthy woman of Spencer. With this revelation, he starts to put his detective skills to work. He teams up with other locals and a German shepherd named Gnarly to investigate the happenings of the town. What will they find out and will they solve the mystery before it is too late?

It’s Murder, My Son is a fun and entertaining suspenseful read. I love getting to know Mac Faraday and learning his background story. Of course, my favorite character has to be Gnarly. There is nothing like reading book with a spunky canine being part of the plot. I love the twists and turns involved that kept me on the edge of my seat. I was continually wondering what would happen next. 

It’s Murder, My Son is getting a well deserved five plus stars from me. I am hooked on Miss Carr’s writing. I can not wait to get my hands on the other books in Mac Faraday Mysteries series. I look forward to find out what else Mac and Gnarly gets themselves into. 

Great book!
