Once Upon A Crime
by Evelyn Cullet
This is my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it. The characters are great…

…I love the title’s nod to the traditional start of a fairy tale: once upon a time. There are damsels in distress, a knight or two in shining armor, a few ugly trolls and a number (and no, I won’t say how many) of really twisted, evil villains. And the best part is, all of these archetypes show up in modern day characters.
“Once Upon A Crime” is a twisty story of love, betrayal, trickery, and murder.

The people you meet in this town are quirky but realistic…If you like twists and turns and a dash of drama, you will probably like this book.
…There were times I felt like screaming at Jane, “Don’t get involved with Kenny! He’s bad news!” But at the same time, I wanted them to get together. It’s like Jane’s own thoughts were in my head! I could see myself being friends with someone like Jane. So, what does that tell me? It says the author’s characters were very real! A great job on the author’s part….

Love isn’t always a fairy tale…and Charlotte Ross has kissed her share of frogs, but that’s all behind her. Fleeing her life for a short break, Charlotte, along with her best friend Jane Marshall, find themselves at her aunt’s home in the sleepy town of Raven’s Caw, Michigan. Charlotte hopes to recover from another breakup with her fiancé, and her friend Jane, a new mystery writer, is looking forward to somewhere relaxing. But life has different plans for the two friends and they find themselves swept up in a whirlwind of romance, mystery and murder.
Sparks fly between Jane and Charlotte’s attractive, Machiavellian cousin, Kenny. But is the attraction too good to be true or just a diversion from a mystery that has piqued her interest? Charlotte is pulled along on this roller-coaster of emotion when she meets up with her first love, as she and Jane discover links between a murder that happened twelve years earlier and a recent crime. Risking their lives and hearts, the friends race against the past in an effort to solve the crimes before one of them becomes the next victim.
About This Author
I’ve been an aspiring author since high school when I wrote short stories to amuse family members. I began my first novel while attending college later in life, and while working in the offices of a major soft drink company. Even though my job, my home, and my family always took precedence, I continued to attend writing classes and work on my novels. Now, after taking early retirement, I finally have the chance to do what I love best; write full-time. While I enjoy playing the piano, being an organic gardener, and an amateur Lapidary, writing has always been my passion. I was a former member of the Agatha Christie Society and am currently a member of Sisters in Crime. I write mysteries with light romance and a little humor. My husband and I live in a suburb of Chicago along with our Black Lab/Pit Bull, Bailey.
