Book Review & Giveaway: When Death Draws Near by Carrie Stuart Parks (Undercover Artist HUGE Giveaway!!)

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this ebook, free of charge,from Litfuse Blog Tours, via Netgalley,, for review and giveaway purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it

Plunge into forensic artist Gwen Marcey's world, full of cold-case murders, shady politics, and a den of venomous suspects.

Forensic artist Gwen Marcey is between jobs when she accepts temporary work in Pikeville, Kentucky—a small town facing big-city crime. But before Gwen can finish her first drawing of the serial rapist who is on the loose, the latest witness vanishes. Just like all the others.

Gwen suspects a connection between the rapist and the “accidental” deaths that are happening around town, but the local sheriff has little interest in her theories. When her digitally-obsessed teenage daughter joins her, Gwen turns her attention to a second assignment: going undercover in a serpent-handling church. She could get a handsome reward for uncovering illegal activity—a reward she desperately needs, as it seems her breast cancer has returned. But snakes aren’t the only ones ready to kill. Can Gwen uncover the truth—and convince anyone to believe her—before she becomes a victim herself?


This is the third book in the Gwen Marcey series, but the first one I had read. Gwen is a character all moms can relate to- she is struggling to keep things normal for her daughter, dealing with an ex, and struggling to cover expenses. that is part of what makes the book such a page turner- Gwen is a realistic character in explainable real circumstances. This is a really quick read, that will have you guessing and then re-guessing who the killer really is, until the crazy ending, that will leave you ready for the next book in the series! It will also make you want to go back and read books 1 and 2 (A Cry From the Dust and The Bones Will Speak), it's a perfect Fall read!
