CLP Blog Tours Book Review: The Seduction of Miriam Cross by WA Tyson

Reviewer: Samantha

the seduction of miriam crossWA Tyson is now on tour with CLP Blog Tours and The Seduction of Miriam Cross


Can Delilah Percy Powers figure out who killed Miriam Cross before she becomes the killer’s next target?

Miriam Cross, author, feminist and philanthropist, disappears from her Philadelphia home. A year later, a lonely recluse named Emily Cray is brutally murdered in her bed in a small Pennsylvania town. Miriam and Emily are one and the same. As Delilah and her staff of female detectives – a militant homemaker, an ex-headmistress and a former stripper – delve into Miriam’s life, they become submerged in an underworld of unfathomable cruelty and greed with implications that go far beyond the gruesome death of one woman or the boundaries of one country. Eventually Miriam’s fight for justice becomes Delilah’s own…until Delilah’s obsession with finding the truth may prove just as deadly.


I could tell from the first chapter that this book was for me. I didn’t even quite know what was happening or why or had gotten to know the characters real well, yet I couldn’t put the book down. I was just drawn in immediately, and it got to the point where I was working and writing emails like this – type a line, look down at Kindle. Type a line, look down at Kindle. I loved it! There is a complex story behind the mystery of Miriam Cross’s death, and hard-hitting PI at the helm trying to solve the case. While we mostly get the suspense, there is a touch of romance and some family angst thrown in there as well to give the book more depth, but I appreciated that WA Tyson didn’t turn this into a romance novel and really stuck to what the book was about – mystery. A story that I didn’t want to stop reading, I look forward to more in this series and give this 5 stars!
