#BookReview: Dying Brandy by Wendy Tyson #CLPBlogTours

I received a review copy

dying brandSummary:

When image consultant Allison Campbell attends an award ceremony to honor a designer friend, she’s thrust into a murder investigation. Only this time, it’s personal.

A former boyfriend is dead, slain on the streets of Philadelphia. His widow claims he was meeting with Allison, yet Allison hadn’t spoken to him in years. Nothing about his death—or life—makes sense. When compromising photos from their past arrive at Allison’s office, they raise more questions than they answer.

Driven to find justice, Allison deconstructs the image her ex had created for himself, looking for clues about the man he’d become. As her hunt for the truth unveils secrets, Allison’s past and present collide—with deadly results.


I have read all the books in the Allison Campbell series, and I love them all! Tyson has a way of bringing you into the world and right in the center of the mystery. Dying Brand was no exception. I loved the short and snappy sections of the book, and it made the story seem to fly by. I couldn’t put the book down, especially as I neared the end. There were so many possible suspects in the death of Allison’s ex-boyfriend, and I had trouble deciding who I thought was the real killer. Turns out, I really wasn’t close at all! Definitely a mystery series not to miss.

5 stars
