I love books about the afterlife, but when I find a book about a mystery writer in the afterlife, you had me at “whodunnit”. The Point Between is a great read and I gave it 5 Stars.
Here is the book description from Amazon.
Bestselling mystery novelist Lily Harrington has been found hanging in her home in the tiny, oddball haven of Point Roberts, Washington, and all signs point to suicide. Worried the truth will be buried with her, Lily teams up with Marcus Mantova, the sexy detective of her novels, to influence the investigation and catch her killer. Yet no sooner has Lily come to terms with the existence of Marcus, the womanizing egomaniac she had thought a product of her imagination, than dead Whatcom County detective Penelope Winters also worms her way onto the case. Lies, frauds, and competing agendas take Lily on a roller-coaster ride over heaven and earth until, at last, she discovers the truth and another chance at life.
One thing I would warn some of my cozy readers is there is some sex and language in the book. It isn’t overwhelming, but a part of the story.
I really loved her explanation of how her characters came to her. The writer thought she created them from her imagination, but the characters become real people to Lily Harrington when she died. They were spirits who were living through her books! What a fascinating way to look at it. I, of course, began wondering if Betsy and Aunt Maggie were out there somewhere haunting me. It could happen!
Here is my review posted to GoodReads.
As a mystery writer I really enjoyed all of the wonderful ideas about the afterlife M.A. Demers had with The Point Between! When Lily Harrington is found hanging in her living room, she finds herself a spirit. Now she must figure out how she ended up dead from the other side. This book was a real page turner. I highly recommend it!
I received a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
You’ve convinced me! I’m adding this to my TBR list.
