Title: Blast from the Past (Lovers in Crime Book 4)
Author: Lauren Carr
Blast from the Past was a great read. I love her work! She has everything set right, and it makes me want to go out and read the rest of the series! The story flowed fairly fast, and was really good. She had about 3 (maybe 4) different stories going all connected to the main one. It got pretty intense, and I loved the end result. I give this book 5 out of 5 book-a-saur paws.
I was fortunate enough to have an interview with her! Here is the interview.
Me: What inspired you to write Blast from the Past?
Here is more on the book and the author:
BLURB: In this fourth mystery on Deep Creek Lake; Mac Faraday finds himself up to his eyeballs in mobsters and federal agents.
After an attempted hit ends badly with two of his men dead, mobster Tommy Cruze arrives in Spencer, Maryland, to personally supervise the execution of the witness responsible for putting him behind bars—Archie Monday!
Mac Faraday believes he has his work cut out for him in protecting his lady love from one of the most dangerous leaders in organized crime; but when bodies start dropping in his lakeshore resort town, things may be hotter than even he can handle.
Lauren Carr fell in love with mysteries when her mother read Perry Mason to her at bedtime. The first installment in the Joshua Thornton mysteries, A Small Case of Murder was a finalist for the Independent Publisher Book Award.

It’s Murder, My Son, Old Loves Die Hard, and Shades of Murder, have all been getting rave reviews from readers and reviewers.
