Review: Hand of Fate by Lis Wiehl and April Henry

Around March, I wanted to try something new. I signed up at Booksneeze as part of their book review bloggers program. I picked a novel that I don't usually read. A mystery novel. And I've received a copy of Hand of Fate for free, with the understanding that I am to review the book based on my opinion and reaction. I'm disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.


Hand of Fate is a murder mystery that revolves around the death of Jim Fate, an outspoken radio host with a mouth that drips poison and annoys and infuriates lots of people every single day of his life. Nicole, Allison and Cassidy search for justice in a world where words are sharpened by hidden agendas and thrown like weapons. Intentions are weaved into a tapestry of truths and lies that cover the identity of the killer. Will they manage to find out who the killer is, when the line of suspects seems never-ending?

My Thoughts:

Being a girl who loved watching CSI and Bones, I found this extremely interesting. It had me flipping the pages madly.
Jim Fate had grown to have lots of enemies in the past years. I’ve learned to hate him for his harsh words. But at the same time, I pitied him for his death. No one deserved to die just because of something spoken in the air, something done to earn a living.

The women of the Triple Threat Club were all well developed. They weren’t just people who solved the crime. I loved that the readers got see into their lives and discover what’s going on in a deeper level.

I found the faith in God really inspiring. This wasn’t the kind of novel that pushed readers to believe. There was scepticism within the lines. In the end, it proved to be a great source of hope and strength.
