Ann Kinnear is a quiet, private person who “senses” spirits. She and her brother Mike have a spirit consulting business, but Ann prefers to stay out of the limelight. When Ann is asked to sense spirits for a client in a home that she’s considering purchasing, Ann immediately senses that a terrible event has occurred within the home. Ann is then unwillingly drawn into a murder mystery that puts her own life in danger.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It has so many great elements going for it. Yes, readers are aware of who the murderer is at the start, but that in no way ruins the book. In fact, I found The Sense of Death to be one of the most suspenseful books I’ve ever read. I never knew quite what would happen next.
Matty Dalyrmple’s writing is wonderfully expressive. Her characters are well developed and relatable. She does a great job of making the murderer a highly unlikable character. I enjoyed the author’s writing, plot and characters so much that I was able to breeze through the book in a day. I was also very interested in seeing how it would end. The ending was tidy and satisfying!
I highly recommend The Sense of Death to anyone who enjoys a good murder mystery, with a unique paranormal slant added in for plenty of additional interest.
