{{Book Review}} When Death Draws Near | Gwen Marcey takes death in stride. Until she's faced with her own mortality.

Forensic artist Gwen Marcey is between jobs when she accepts temporary work in Pikeville, Kentucky---a small town facing big-city crime. But before Gwen can finish her first drawing of the serial rapist who is on the loose, the latest witness vanishes. Just like all the others.

Gwen suspects a connection between the rapist and the "accidental" deaths that are happening around town, but the local sheriff has little interest in her theories. When her digitally-obsessed teenage daughter joins her there, Gwen turns her attention to a second assignment: going undercover in a serpent-handling church. She could get a handsome reward for uncovering illegal activity there---a reward she desperately needs, as it seems her breast cancer has returned. But snakes aren't the only ones ready to kill. Can Gwen uncover the truth---and convince anyone to believe her---before she becomes a victim herself?

*My Review*
This is my first time reading anything by Carrie Stuart. Whenever I read something from a new(to me) author I get nervous, because I'm always worried about if I will enjoy the book or not, how they're writing style is, and will I even get past the first few pages...esp since just about all of the books I post here on my blog are for reviews.

"When Death Draws Near" has all of the action and suspense of a murder mystery. There are so many twists and turns in this book that you will be hooked until the very last page.
I was introduced to books like Nancy Drew & the Hardy Boys when I was about 8 or 9 & I have been into mystery/murder mystery books ever since. This is one book I will be keeping around for awhile so I can read it again.

I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. I am not required to write a positive review. ALL opinions expressed are 100% my own.
