The main characters in this book, Admit to Mayhem, will stay with me as will the story, so much so that I immediately checked for more books written by the author. I love her style of writing, the descriptions and the sense of humour inserted without interruptions to the flow of the plot. The main character’s struggle with her sobriety and her relationship with her mother touched me deeply. I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading more by D. J. Adamson. – Amazon Review
Admit to Mayhem: Lillian Dove Mystery, Book One:
ADMIT TO MAYHEM: Eyewitness to arson plummets
Lillian Dove into an historical murder case, giving twists …
(Lillian Dove Mystery Series 1)
Admit to Mayhem’s sequence of events has Lillian tense and on edge.
Lillian Dove is forced to confront a past that she never knew existed when she enters a burning building to rescue a stranger. As she embarks on a quest to uncover the mysteries surrounding the building and its arson attacks, she soon discovers that her own life is at stake.
With danger lurking around every corner, Lillian must piece together a sixty-year-old arson fire and its connection to the present-day events in order to save herself and bring peace to the victims of the mysterious fires.
Through her personal journey, Lillian Dove discovers a strength she never knew she had, and the courage to face her demons and the secrets of her own past.
“Admit to Mayhem does what any good mystery should do (but too few genre reads achieve): takes the time to create a feisty, believable protagonist with a myriad of concerns outside the mystery that draws her in, fills her life and the novel’s progression with a series of unexpected.”
