The Miner’s Canary by Barbara Pronin ~ 5⭐

Genre: Suspense, Thriller ~ Release Date: October 25, 2022

REVIEW: The Miner’s Canary by Barbara Pronin was one book I read this year that grabbed me from the beginning and didn’t let me go until the very end! It has some twists and turns I didn’t expect. I am so pleased that I was approached to read and review an early copy of this book. This is the first book I’ve read by this author and it won’t be my last!

I have to admit I read the synopsis when Ms. Pronin first offered her new book to me to read but I forgot what the book was about when I picked it up. I went in cold. I’m so glad I did. The surprises along the way were a delight. I didn’t remember that it was a mystery. I thought it was a cute story about a woman that inherited her Aunt’s home. I was so mistaken.

The characters in this book are lovable and believable. I liked Julie, who is the main character. She is the widowed mother of a young girl. The town the Aunt lived in is Deadwood, South Dakota and the Police Chief is Charlie. Julie has every intention of selling the house and going back to California. In the short time she is in Deadwood, she meets people she considers her friends. It becomes obvious she has more friends there than she has back home. She moves with her daughter and the young woman who does child care for her back to Deadwood.

There are questions she has about the sudden death of her Aunt and things begin to happen to her and her daughter that makes her think someone in Deadwood doesn’t want her there. Problem is there are at least three people she can think of that would like her to leave. She decides they are not going to drive her out. She stays and fights back! Good for you, Julie!

This book literally had me sitting on the edge of my chair. I couldn’t put it down. I spent every spare minute I had in two days to finish The Miner’s Canary. If you love a book filled with mystery and suspense, then this book is for you! I loved it. I’m sure you will too. If you read this book, let me know what you think. Until next time…Happy Reading!

SYNOPSIS: “A smart heroine with a haunted past . . . a who-done-it full of twists and turns.”

Haunted by a death she might have prevented, single mom Julie Goldman returns to the brooding Black Hills of South Dakota to turn the old Victorian she inherits from her aunt into a bed-and-breakfast inn. But mysterious deaths are piling up, and a series of vaguely escalating threats convince her that someone wants her gone. When daughter Lu is run off the road while riding her bike, Julie knows she must find and stop whoever has them squarely in their sights.
