My Review

The kind, sweet, super sleuth, Liv Bergen returns in this sequel to In The Belly Of Jonah. I didn’t think it was possible to like the second book more than the first, but I did. It was easy to love this well written mystery. Set inSturgis,South Dakotaduring the Sturgis motorcycle rally, this book comes alive. You can feel the energy in the air, smell the smells, and yes even feel fear.Once again Sandra Brennan pulled me into the lives of her characters in a way only a great author can. She pulls us into her characters worlds and makes us love them and root for them. My biggest issue was I want to see Liv and Streeter to end up together, which forces me to wait for the next book. Okay, I would have read the next book regardless.The plot is paced perfectly to draw in and keep the readers attention.

I found myself taking this book into the bathtub with me, to the doctor’s office, and even the dentist. Every time I went to put it down I read something that made me want to turn the next page. This one is personal to Liv much more so than in her first book. InLot’s Return To Sodom the murder victim is in her own family and she has to try to prove her brother is not the killer. Sandra Brannan kept me on the edge of my seat, wondering what would happen next.It wouldn’t be a problem for a reader to pick up this book without having read the first one; however I suggest getting In The Belly Of Jonah. I think Sandra Brannan is an up and coming author and I could already see her writing maturing quite a bit between the two books. She has quite a bit of potential as a mystery writer.Way to go Ms. Brannan on another great book. I for one can’t wait to see what you have in store for your readers!


I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a great mystery blended with a touch of romance. This book will give you a healthy dose of who done it and leave you begging for more. You can purchase Lot’s Return to Sodom: A Liv Bergen Mystery at Amazon.
