Book Review: Brilliant Disguise by Mary Anne Edwards

 Title: Brilliant Disguise
 Author: Mary Anne Edwards
 Series: The Charlie McClung Mystery
 Publisher: Sellem books
 Format: Paperback
 Genre: Mystery
 Source: Received for review from author
 Reviewed by: Marlene

Brilliant Disguise is a story about Marian Selby's  neighbor's death. Although it is quickly written off as a suicide Marian will not let it go and drafts the help of Lyman County's newest police detective Charlie McClung. Soon the two of them are not only trying to solve this murder mystery in secrecy due to a police cover up but they are also becoming emotionally closer to one another. Both have been alone for a long time and are reluctant to take that next step. But as they get closer to who done it, they ultimately fall for each other as well.

This book reminded me of Angela Lansbury from Murder She Wrote, it is tastefully set, timeless and reminds me of times when chivalry was still around, but is also set in 1982 (which I lost site of till a VCR was mentioned later on). I loved the two main characters and found I had a connection with both. I can't wait to read the next one.
