Local Poet By Paul Trembling

I received this book from Kregel Publications for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own. 

Book Description:

Rob doesn't know Laney Grey. But when she steps out in front of his van and dies on impact, his life will never be the same. He has to know who she was, why she chose to die, and why he had to be part of her death.

To understand her, he must learn to read her poetry. To know her, he must unravel the mysteries of her past. As Laney's dark secret starts to come to light, and authorities get involved, Rob must learn the full truth and quickly.

But truth comes at a cost and someone must pay...will Rob be the one?


"Paul Trembling has spun a tense, haunting, beautiful tale in this literary thriller. The story of Laney Grey and the man who killed her will stay with you for a long time." -Fiona Veitch Smith, CWA shortlisted author of The Jazz Files.

"A note-worthy start to a smashing new series populated by characters you will not soon forget. Action mounts. Dark mysteries deepen...how long can you hold your breath?" -Edna Buchanan, author of the Britt Montero series.


My Thoughts: 

Local Poet is Paul Trembling's latest book and it is very good. This book is the first in a series.  Paul Trembling is a new to me author and I am so glad I had the pleasure of reading it. This book is a Christian Suspense/Mystery Fiction, which I am a huge fan of.  Paul Trembling writes with authority on: London and the areas around it, police procedures, the  RTC (Road Traffic Collision), poetry, and investigating. This book is not a long book but in the 176 pages Paul Trembling writes an intense story that really grabbed me and kept me guessing until the end. I found myself unable to put this book down. The characters in this book are well written and not always what they seem. I found myself drawn to Rob, as this story is told from his perspective. His character goes through a lot and has a tough time when things are not in his control. He definitely goes through a transformation because of this accident and what he finds out about the victim, Laney, and her poetry.  I enjoyed Paul Trembling's writing style, his ability to write so much in a shorter book and transitions between past and present seamlessly. I cannot wait to read the books in this series. At the end of this book there is a snippet from the next book in this series and WOW it definitely has piqued my interest. I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys Suspense/Mystery stories, you will not be disappointed. I give this book 4.5 STARS.

I would also like to apologize for the lateness of this review to Paul Trembling and Kregel Publications, there is no excuse for the lateness.
