Dead Ends by Sandra Balzo is the first book in the “Main Street” mystery series. Publisher: Severn House Publishers, September 2012
AnnaLise gets involved in a murder when her married ex-lover arrives in town with his wife and child. By asking questions, AnnaLise suddenly becomes a threat to a killer who’s hiding in plain sight. This was a good read and the author did a great job in keeping me in suspense with the many twists and directions the story took in unraveling and exposing a killer. AnnaLise is a strong yet vulnerable heroine as her search for answers brings her face-to-face with some of her own past actions. This character-driven whodunit boasts a wonderful supporting cast, good conversations and southern charm. The ending left us with new possibilities and I look forward to reading the next book in this charismatically appealing series.
