Review: THE MURDER MOTIF by Roslyn Woods

Michelle Hodge needed a change in her life. She left her job and boyfriend, packed up her car, and headed straight for Austin, where she would work in an art gallery—a perfect place for an artist.

Meanwhile, Dean discovers that his mean, greedy, soon-to-be-ex-wife had been shot and killed.

For the first night in town, Michelle stays with her old college friend, Margie, who recommended her half-brother’s (Dean) sublet for rent. Neither had realized that Dean would be a prime suspect in his ex-wife’s murder. Michelle felt bad for the torment and anguish this murder was causing. If only she could help.

I liked how you just get into these flawed and relatable characters. I liked how this started, opening up to the case at hand; however, it had a consistent lag. I think there was too much time spent on getting Michelle settled into her new house and all the other everyday banalities of life. There wasn’t that much on the mystery itself.

This was an okay read, but not as riveting as I first thought.

My rating: 3 stars
