Thank you to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for giving me the chance to review Preserved by Fiona Sherlock
He’s watching her unfold his masterpiece, but her time is almost up.
When a local farmer announces on social media that he has discovered a bog body in Ardee, the world’s historians are keen to explore the secrets of the life and grisly death of the victim.
Antique journalist January Quail is fighting to keep her newspaper job and uncovers far more than she bargained for. The victim is actually a recent murder, and January uses her nose for the truth to investigate the County Louth town. From shopkeeper to the publican, everyone is a suspect, but when the Gardai can’t find the killer, can January?
Once she sets down the liqueur glass, January gains the confidence of the lead garda investigator. Within days, the case unravels into a much more dangerous situation with a killer on the loose.
Despite the risk, January is electrified that this newest discovery has come at the perfect time to inject some colour into her flailing career. January relinquishes her old ways to fight for survival, abandoning her antiques column and vintage corsets to solve a cryptic crime that has the experts puzzled. This woman who longs to lives in the past must now fight for her life in the present.
There’s always one book that you never forget reading and Preserved will definitely be one of those.
I absolutely fell in love the character January. It’s nice to have a strong female character. The plot was well thought out and very interesting.
Preserved is a book I would recommend.
