READERS FAVORITE REVIEW = FIVE STARS
Reviewed by Peggy Jo Wipf for Readers' Favorite.
Barry Holmes Mysteries by Brenda Mohammed combines three intriguing mystery thrillers.
Barry Holmes meets his girlfriend's father with the intent to ask for her hand in marriage.
He was informed that Crystal would never be good enough for him, and the father had someone with more ambition for her to marry,
Barry leaves the Caribbean Islands.
Five years later, she desperately needs his help in finding her daughter.
Through this act of love, Barry finds a new career and family.
He then becomes the head detective; and tackles unusual and baffling cases that stump other detectives.
Honesty, trust, and intuition are his motto.
Barry doesn't assume the obvious suspect is the criminal and digs deeper until the truth comes to light.
The first story, The Gift of Love, was my favorite.
How will he find a child that everyone claims is non-existent when the mother witnessed the abduction?
Three months after she was in a coma with head injuries, and the trail appears cold.
Brenda Mohammed is a refreshing author that brings out the best in her characters.
Barry Holmes Mysteries includes three short stories that introduce Barry and his skills in deductive reasoning.
I found the stories simple, but the plots unusual.
From the beginning, the author seizes the reader's interest and draws you into the lives of her characters and the beautiful Caribbean Islands.
Each story holds all the elements of a good mystery novel; well-rounded characters, a solid plot, and twists that unfold as the crimes are solved.
The author is known for her diverse interests and writing abilities, which come out in her stories.
I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to any other Barry Holmes mysteries.
