Fatal Impressions by Reba White Williams--A Review
Coleman and Dinah Greene are making names for themselves in the art world. Coleman's magazine publishing empire is growing and Dinah's print gallery is gaining traction. In fact, Dinah has just won the contract to select, buy, and hang art in the New York office of the management consultants Davidson, Douglas, Danbury & Weeks � a major coup that will generate The Greene Gallery's first big profits. However, when Dinah goes to DDD&W to begin work, she discovers a corporate culture unlike anything she's ever encountered before. There are suggestions of improprieties everywhere, including missing art worth a fortune. And when two DDD&W staff members are discovered murdered, Dinah and Coleman find themselves swept into the heart of another mystery. Revealing the murderer will be no easy task...but first Dinah needs to clear her own name from the suspect list
FROM MY PERSPECTIVE:
This book was quite an enjoyable read. It is the story of two cousins who live and work in New York. These two have built their businesses from the bootstraps up and have wonderful reputations. They are concerned with the success of their businesses and some of their decisions have brought them very close to less than perfect business people.
The book reads fast as the chapters are short and lead the reader on a merry jaunt through murder and mayhem. The main characters are strong and are well thought of by friends and family. However, they are subjected to strife and jealousy in the corporate world. We know that our girl didn't commit the crimes, but just who was the guilty party? And what were the motives? The story being easy to read and fast paced, held my attention fully. I felt Dinah's fear was stymied to learn, her reprieve had always been right before their noses. One of the characters that I thought could be responsible, turned out to be innocent, although he was totally lakadaisical about his management role. Definitely an enjoyable read, as I approached the end, I felt things were a little rushed.
I rated this book 4 Winks!
