Poisoned Pen Press A Tai Randolph Mystery (series)
Tina Whittle has a gift for writing tense scenes and troubled characters. Tai Randolph, the young protagonist, and her love interest, Trey Seaver, an ex-FBI agent, who suffers from PTSD after a critical head injury add an undercurrent to the story.
When a Civil War hero’s ancient grave is tossed by a tornado that sets down in North Georgia, more than skeletal remains are sent flying. Plot twists reign in this mystery/thriller as Trey approaches the annual anniversary that usually sends him spiraling into chaos, the gun shop is almost destroyed, the rich, a prominent Southern family fights the investigation, a little grave complicates things, and a young, unexpected visitor keeps you on your toes. Whittle is a pro at revving up the tension and pacing it just right to keep the readers attention. It certainly kept mine engaged.
