The Wedding Deception (The Gathering Storm Series) By Marlow Kelly Review!

 

 

The Wedding Deception (The Gathering Storm Series) (2018) by Marlow Kelly is a short story from The Gathering Storm Series and gives readers a taster of what the series will be like.

In this particular short read, we meet once again Finn Callaghan but also intern agent Kennedy Morris. In this short, the pair begin to work together and it is essentially the backstory on how they meet. A case involving a wedding reception unexpectedly becomes their first case together after the bride Vanessa disappears leaving the groom Blake wondering what has happened to her after she disappeared from the apartment they share.

What ensues is a great mystery of a woman who most people apparently knew very little about and who there is very little information about. This is hard to pull off in mystery writing and still make it all come together at the end but I think the author pulls it off here.

They are both great characters. Both very strong-minded characters in their own individual ways which I appreciated and they have a wonderful mutual respect for each other. I also love how the author brings class discrimination into the book which I think needs to be drawn attention to.

Very clearly and crisply written and another great introduction to the author’s The Gathering Storm series. Another really great read.

The Wily Witness: A Gathering Storm Short Story (The Gathering Storm) By Marlow Kelly Review!

The Wily Witness: A Gathering Storm Short Story (The Gathering Storm) (2017) By Marlow Kelly is an intriguing short and a great introduction to Probationary FBI Agent Finn Callaghan.

In the story we meet Finn who has only just started on the job. He meets a teenage boy called Noah after he is brought in on suspicion of robbing expensive diamonds from a store. Despite everyone ready to throw away the key, Finn is not being so hasty. He believes that Noah didn’t do it and sets about figuring out who did.

Finn comes across as someone with his own mind, is very determined and is not a pushover. He genuinely cares about people, wants them to be alright and doesn’t want to see anyone go down for something they didn’t do. That is the kind of FBI Agent you need around in a crisis. Or at anytime for that matter. I liked him and I liked the story too. It had good suspense to it and showed another side to Kelly’s writing from the previous book I read I read of Kelly’s which is great to see.

More of Finn’s adventures can be seen in Kelly’s The Gathering Storm Series but this very well-written and enjoyable short gives readers a taste of what they can expect from the series.

A great read.
