The Tables Have Turned is book two in Lori Power’s Under Suspicion series, a story that features fine romance with heart-stopping suspense mixed with a criminal investigation. A dead woman, an undercover police detective, and a woman who could be turned in by the man she loves. An old woman gets killed, and all the evidence points to Lorna Tymchuck. For her, it is a set up and she is determined to get to the bottom of it, but as she digs deeper, she meets with unsettling facts that could implicate her even more — and the dark secrets she doesn’t want to stare in the face. Her fiancé, Mitch Morgan, is an astute detective and he’ll do everything to find the killer, but then the evidence seems to lead too close to home. Could he have been in love with a murderer and, if Lorna is responsible for the crime, does he have the courage to bring her in?
One of Lori Power’s fortes is the strong prose and her uncanny ability to make readers feel the characters. I got hooked from the start of the story. “No one was to know – except one,” is the line that captures the thoughts of Mitchell Morgan as he prowls the night like a predator. That was the hook for me. Lorna and Mitch are well sculpted characters and readers become keen as they explore the worlds within them, caught up in the suspense, waiting for the moment of truth. The writing is fluid, exceptionally good, and enticing. The conflict is well-crafted to measure the pace of the plot and the reader can’t escape either the psychological conflict that moves the characters or the physical one. I found both the plot and the writing in The Tables Have Turned to be beguiling and can’t wait to read Secrets Revealed. This is a book for those who love dynamic characters, strong writing, and a gripping plot.
