Book Review - Witness to Murder

When TV reporter Hallie arrives to interview a model with a promising future, she walks into a grizzly scene -- the girl's boyfriend bending over her body holding the murder weapon. She also makes a baffling discovery when she sees the bracelet the murder victim is wearing. How did that young model end up with a bracelet made by Hallie's deceased Nigerian mother?

This book is full of Jill Elizabeth Nelson's trademark snappy narrative and unexpected developments. Hallie's headstrong personality carries the story forward at a satisfyingly swift pace. Her struggle to blend her Nigerian heritage with her American life was well-done, and the glimpses into the lives of her missionary parents were fascinating. I also enjoyed getting a second look at the girls I met in Evidence of Murder.
