The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Viv Delaney leaves her home town and ends up in Fells, NY. She gets a night clerk job at the same rundown motel her aunt worked at just before she disappeared 35 years ago.

Death with a Double Edge (Daniel Pitt #4) by Anne Perry

Rating: 4 out of 5.

3.5 stars rounded up to 4

I really enjoy this author’s work and this book series, but this is my least favorite book in the series so far. I didn’t find the mystery as compelling as in past books, and there seemed to be a lot of filler and repetitiveness to the story.
