Book review by Merri Rosenberg
“I need to confess that I’m not usually a fan of this genre…I initially opened Camilla Crespi’s, The Breakfast Club Murder as an assigned task to be completed. I wasn’t prepared for my complete immersion in this enthralling story, lifting my eyes from the pages only when I realized that I’d be late for a dinner meeting.
…What Crespi does admirably, besides work successfully within the suspense genre to dangle various scenarios before changing direction and keeping the reader eager to turn the page, is create a completely credible and specific world.
…The plot includes dark secrets from the murder victim’s past, Lori’s attraction to a younger suitor, the realities of economic reversals that suggest motive for some characters, and the tangled tensions between mothers and daughters.
Tuck this into a tote as a diverting read for the daily commute or save it for a summer beach bag as a welcome reward for surviving the winter of 2014.”
