Savannah Harris left her life as an investigative journalist following the death of her husband and daughter, but she finds herself getting deeper than she’d like when immigrant workers harvesting local crops begin to disappear and there are whispers of murder.
Dubosity is an excellent thriller, with enough of a touch of romance to keep me happy. There was plenty of suspense, especially as the reader knows Savannah is being watched … but we don’t know by whom. But there are plenty of likely suspects, including landowner Landon Kavanaugh, and Clive Miller, who is new in town.
Savannah is an intelligent and likeable character, despite abandoning God and withdrawing from life following the death of her family, and it was easy to want her to determine the identity of the evildoer, rediscover her faith, and get her happy-ever-after.
The writing was excellent. I have read one or two of Barritt’s earlier books, and while they were good, they were shorter works of fiction, and this was better: the longer novel gave more opportunity for subplots and character development, and it was well done. Recommended for suspense fans.
