Synopsis: Old Loves Die Hard…and in the worst places.
In Old Loves Die Hard, Lauren Carr continues the rags-to-riches story of Mac Faraday, an underpaid homicide detective who inherits two-hundred-and-seventy million dollars and an estate on Deep Creek Lake, Maryland, from his birth mother on the day his divorce becomes final.
Mac is settling nicely into his new life at Spencer Manor when his ex-wife Christine shows up—and she wants him back! Before Mac can send her packing, Christine and her estranged lover are murdered in Mac’s private penthouse suite at the Spencer Inn, the five-star resort built by his ancestors.
The investigation leads to the discovery of cases files for some of Mac’s murder cases in the room of the man responsible for destroying his marriage. Why would his ex-wife’s lover come to Spencer to dig into Mac’s old cases?
With the help of his new friends on Deep Creek Lake, Mac must use all of his detective skills to clear his name and the Spencer Inn’s reputation, before its five-stars—and more bodies—start dropping!
I read one of the later books in this series in 2020 and really enjoyed it, so I was excited to be accepted on this group of book tours. I really love the author’s writing style, and I was excited to jump back into this universe.
Mac Faraday is one of the few enjoyable detective leads I’ve read. Starting back this early into the series made me like him even more actually. It really showed how much he’s grown as a character from the beginning of the series.
Lauren Carr writes great cozy mysteries that I highly recommend!
I received a gifted copy of this book via iRead Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
