Fatal Facade (An Allison Campbell Mystery) (Volume 4) - Wendy Tyson

Another Allison Campbell read wherein she is hired to "reinvent" Elle Rose, the daughter of an aging rock star who loves to really party and whose antics have had her in the limelight more times than she would like.

This one takes place in Italy and right before Allison shows up, Elle's husband is found dead at the bottom of a cliff. The police say it was accidental, but after another death shortly thereafter, was it?

The story is full of quirky characters all staying at Elle and her father's castle due to a filming of a movie in Italy. Something is definitely going on at this castle and Allison fears for herself and her niece who is staying there with her.

A really good story that is both creepy with the characters and the setting that I really enjoyed reading. This is one of my favorite cozies and I was very excited when I saw that I had been approved to read this.

Thanks to Henery Press and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Tyson, and Campbell, just keep getting better.
Fatal Facade (An Allison Campbell Mystery) (Volume 4) - Wendy Tyson

As a long-time fan of Wendy Tyson and Allison Campbell, I lept at the chance to read the fourth installment of the series before it releases. I was not disappointed in the least. As cliched as it sounds, I absolutely could not put it down. Allison only becomes more complex and therefore more relatable with each book. Because I abhor spoilers, I will only say that Fatal Facade had me cheering for her so thoroughly that I'm a bit sad she isn't real and we can't meet up for a glass of wine. The way that she helps Elle Rose shows determination and compassion that we come to expect from a Wendy Tyson protagonist, but Allison's willingness to walk away for her own safety and that of her family shows growth. All of the sundry characters are fully developed and are anything but caricatures, which makes this installment that much more thrilling. And the historic castle grounds! I'm absolutely going to have to make a trip to the dolomites to experience it myself. Hopefully with less murder.

Fatal Facade (An Allison Campbell Mystery) (Volume 4) - Wendy Tyson

It feels like forever since I read the previous book in this series. I didn't have any problem remembering who the characters were in the beginning of this book. The plot seemed like it would be interesting when I first started this but the more that I read this the more I became bored with this. The plot dragged on until I felt like this was going nowhere. The few deaths that were thrown in couldn't even save this for me. Allison's strained relationship with Jason also caused me to not enjoy this. I don't see myself continuing on with this series anymore. 

 

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.
