Review of : the Tender Mercy of Roses by Anna Michaels

While the body of rodeo star Pony Jones lies motionless in the northern Alabama woods, her spirit is on a mission to find her killer. Invisible to the eye but not to the sixth sense, the only thing Pony can do is guide the living to the truth.

Her grief-stricken father, Titus, wants nothing more than retribution for his daughter's death, so when former police detective Jo Beth Dawson comes to town, something compels him to seek out her help.

But when Jo Beth and Titus team up to track down Pony's murderer, it turns loose a whirlwind of intense emotion and unexpected encounters. As they uncover more and more clues leading them to the killer, dark family secrets are revealed and the two must search their souls for redemption.
My Review:
I have read thousands upon thousands of books in my life time, once in a while you come across a book that grabs you from the first sentence and doesn't let go until you are finished, this is such a book. Sad, sometimes funny, tender yet tragic. Anna Michaels is not just an author she is a weaver of stories which is a gift some authors do not possess. I recommend you read this book and I sincerely hope to read more from this storyteller. I give this 5 croaks....
