Grab a comfortable seat, my mystery suspense criminal novel review of Stormy Weather follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Primarily a mystery suspense novel, Ebisch, included just enough romance to peak the readers interest. In Stormy Weather, the reader finds an intriguing story-line filled with worthy villains. Ebisch wove many plot threads together to form a solid cohesive novel of suspense and thrills. With twists and turns around very corner, the suspense is kept at its highest peak throughout the book.
The character development was solid as the reader finds a station full of suspects. Which ones are the real culprits? Ebisch expertly reveals the culprit or culprits at just the correct moment to keep the reader glued to the novel.
Developing two characters which seemed polar opposites, yet, had more in common than they realized, Ebisch wets the reader appetite with romance. Chance, a faith-based Bible verse quoting P. I. and Stormy with a non believers attitude and past relationship problems, would not typically be your normal romantic couple. However, Ebisch, weaves romance around them expertly.
Finally, in concluding my mystery suspense criminal novel review of Stormy Weather, I found a solid story-line, well-written, with well-developed characters, and plot lines which will hold the readers interest. I found at one point, the story slowed but quickly picked up speed again. The author held the culprits close to his chest and do not reveal the identifies until the last moment.
STORMY WEATHER RECOMMENDATION: Stars 4
I would not hesitate to buy this book for my self or a friend. I look forward to reading other works from the talented pen and imagination of Glen Ebisch.
