Secrets, Mystery, and More!!!

                 `Death Be Not Proud`
                      By C. F. Dunn    

This fluent author has successfully written  a book that had me on the edge of my chair with the building of the tension filled moments. A most unusual story that kept me glued to the page, wondering what was going to take place next. There were totally unexpected twists and turns throughout the story, ones which totally mystify the reader. Extremely well developed plot gives us the desire to attempt to figure out the basics of the mystery.  

In this book, Professor Emma D'Eresby is viciously attacked by a psychotic colleague and the book begins with her reeling from the discovery that Matthew Lynes, the man she has fallen in love with is VERY DIFFERENT!! In a way that you would never suspect!! In fact, it took me a few chapters to figure out in what way, he was strange!  Emma flees her college in Maine and returns home to England to come to terms with her shattering revelation. Just when she thinks she has the answers, she faces her worst NIGHTMARE!  

A powerful love story between the historical researcher and the mysterious doctor, Matthew is described and developed in realistic, however, unusual, mysterious ways.  The tension continues to build until the final conclusion.

These characters , are described in detail, so that you become friends with them and they grow on you as you read. They are unique, strange and mysterious, which fits perfectly with the plot.

Definitely , a book to be read by all mystery fans!! Well written and a spell binding theme!!

This book was supplied for the purpose of an honest and fair review by Kregel Publications.
