Death Scene by Sara Jayne Townsend


British-born, Toronto-based, actress Shara Summers turns amateur sleuth when her sister is stricken with a mysterious illness. Summoned back to England to be with her family during a time of crisis, Shara discovers doctors are at a loss as to what's causing Astrid’s debilitating sickness.

After her aunt is found dead at the bottom of the stairs the death is deemed an accident. Shara suspects otherwise. Her investigation unearths shocking family secrets and a chilling realization that could have far-reaching and tragic consequences that affect not only her own future, but Astrid’s as well.

Review by Rochelle:

SPOILER ALERT:  Do not read the Acknowledgments before reading Death Scene! Normally, I would simply delete roses for such an oversight, but this book was so good even with the spoiler, I asked the author if she did that on purpose. I thought maybe she meant the reader to know what was going on even if Shara didn’t. She told me she thought the Acknowledgments would be placed at the back of the book. She is planning to ask her publisher if it’s possible to change it. Meanwhile, I suggest saving them for the end.

That said, even knowing more than Shara, Death Scene was a gripping ride watching Shara figure out what was going on, why, who else was involved, and who would survive. I highly recommend it.

Length:  353 Pages
Digital Price:  $5.95 (Without Tax)

You’ll notice we always include the publisher’s buy link. That’s because authors usually receive 40% of the book price from the publisher. Editors and cover artists usually receive about 5%. When you buy a book from Amazon, Barnes & Noble or another third-party vendor, they take a hefty cut and the author, editors and cover artists receive their royalties from what is left. So, if a book costs $5.99 at and you buy from there, the author will receive about $2.40. If you buy the book at Amazon, the author will receive about $0.83.

Downloading the file from your computer to your e-reader is as easy as transferring any file from your computer to a USB flash drive. You can download your books onto your computer using “Save As” to a “Books” folder you create and sort them into sub-folders by genre, author, or however you wish before transferring them to your e-reader. That way, if there’s a glitch with your e-reader, the books are on your computer. Once you’ve saved the book to your computer plug the larger USB end of your chord into a USB port on your computer and simply move the file from the folder you created to your E-Reader/Documents/Books directory. Your author will be happy you did when he/she sees his/her royalty statement.

Thanks for visiting. Julie, Donna, & Rochelle
