✱✱Book Review✱✱ The Secret Life and Death of Josie by Angela Kay

The Secret Life and Death of Josie
by Angela Kay

In the midst of a brutal custody battle for her young son, Det. Lexi Dixon is dragged into the cold case of seventeen-year-old Josie Parker, who was found dead fourteen years ago. Intrigued and hoping to get justice for Josie, Dixon and her partner investigates every possible lead as if the murder happened yesterday. They soon learn that Josie's life was not as it appeared. Was the killer her controlling mother or her best friend? Was it the boyfriend no one ever knew about or someone else entirely? Or will this young girl’s killer once again slip through the cracks?

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Between a tense custody battle and a cold case with more suspects than you can shake a stick at, Detective Lexi Dixon has her hands full. Sound busy? That's because it is - in all the best ways. I love that Angela Kay gives us both sides of Dixon's life, the personal and professional, and they are equally gripping. The outcome and fallout of the custody hearing had me on just as many pins and needles as trying to suss out Josie's killer. There are plenty of suspects to choose from, and I'm pretty sure I chose each one at least once during the story, if not twice. Plus we even get a bit of romance as Dixon works on getting on with her life. What it all boils down to is everything I've come to appreciate from this author - terrific characters, great suspense, and a gripping storyline.
