BOOK REVIEW: Guaranteed to Bleed by Julie Mulhern


Guaranteed to Bleed (The Country Club Murders #2)
by Julie Mulhern (Goodreads Author)
Paperback, 268 pages
Published October 13th 2015 by Henery Press


Goodreads synopsis:
With his dying breath, Bobby Lowell begs Ellison Russell, “Tell her I love her.”

Unable to refuse, Ellison struggles to find the girl the murdered boy loved. Too bad an epically bad blind date, a vindictive graffiti artist, and multiple trips to the emergency room keep getting in the way.

Worse, a killer has Ellison in his sights, her newly-rebellious daughter is missing, and there’s yet another body in her hostas. Mother won’t be pleased.

Now Ellison must track down not one but two runaway teenagers, keep her promise to Bobby and elude the killer—all before her next charity gala committee meeting.

***

5 stars

Having loved book one and rating it five stars, I was immediately drawn to tackle book two. I was intrigued by Ellison and Anarchy’s relationship. So I had to read book two as soon as I could get my hands in it.

Under the bleachers at a high school game, Ellison finds the body of a boy who has been friends with her daughter, Grace, for a long time. Before he dies, he mutters “Tell her I love her.”

Grace is much more front stage for this book as she brings home a new friend Dona and the two go on a wild adventure together… without Ellison’s permission. Ellison splits her time between trying to figure out who Bobby’s special love was and trying to track down her daughter.  All the while she tries to stay in town to answer Anarchy’s multitude of questions.

This is definitely another winning story. I can’t recommend this series highly enough. This was a full-fledged speed read as I had to find out what was really going on. Great flow and fully created characters. Just excellent all around.

If you love all those cop shows from the 70’s, cop shows in general or anything that is mystery related. You will love this. Check it out.


I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank Net Galley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
