Mary Keliikoa’s debut novel, Derailed, is a page-turner you’ll want to read until the end.
Left with her late father’s detective agency, Kelly Pruett is determined to juggle work, caring for her daughter, and her personal life. When a woman comes in asking for Kelly’s help to find out what really happened the night her daughter was struck by a train, Kelly can’t turn her away. After all, Kelly’s father left her a letter telling her to help this woman out if she ever needed it.
As Kelly begins uncovering the shocking secrets about her client’s daughter and her mysterious death, Kelly starts receiving hang-up calls and someone snooping around her house. The more she investigates the longer her suspect list gets, and the more danger she’s in. With the help of a sexy cop and a canine sidekick, Kelly won’t rest until the case is solved, even if that means losing what’s most important to her.
Filled with a lot of mystery and featuring a strong protagonist, Derailed was a joy to read. The twists and turns had me turning the pages and doubting my predictions. Just when you think you have the story figured out, there’s a new twist. I love that the story has a deaf person because I’m all about representation in literature. All of the infidelity was a little much. Overall, the story was a gripping read. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series! 3.8 stars!
Derailed will be published and ready for you to read on May 12th, 2020.
