Three Days to Forever

A Mac Faraday Mystery #9
By Lauren Carr

You are cordially invited to the 
social event of the year...
New Year's Eve at the Spencer Inn
and the wedding of 
Mac Faraday to Archie Monday

Mac Faraday and Archie Monday's wedding is just days away when everything goes oh, so very wrong. Someone from Mac's past makes a threat that Mac takes to Spenser Police Chief David O'Callahan. What David finds puts Mac as suspect number one in a murder case. But before Mac can be questioned a team of assassins attacks Spenser Manor which sends Mac, Gnarly, Joshua Thornton, and Archie's mother on the run. 

All too soon everyone connected with the wedding is in a race against time as even more lives are threatened. As the wedding comes ever nearer - wedded bliss for Archie and Mac is seriously in doubt. Can they determine who did what to who? And why were Spenser Manor and its occupants the target of a professional hit team? And Jessica Faraday and Murphy Thornton have their first meeting which is more than a little memorable.

If you want a fast-paced mystery that finds everyone is in danger (well maybe not Monique - Tristan's pet tarantula). Is the wedding party caught up in several cases or are they all somehow related? This is one book you will want to pay very close attention to so as to not miss out on any clues as to how everything will all unfold. Let's just say this year is about to go out with a bang. 

Now I enjoyed this book in the audio format, which was narrated by C.J. McAllister. I found the narration to be well done, though I did play it back 1.4 times its normal playback speed. I listened to it at the pace I would have been reading it in print. At the default speed, this book comes in at just under 11-1/4 hours of listening - perfect for a week of commuting, exercise, or chores. 

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion, all thoughts expressed are my own.

About the Book:

In one of the most critically-acclaimed Mac Faraday Mysteries from best-selling mystery author Lauren Carr, readers embark on a rollercoaster adventure with old friends (including the Lovers in Crime team of Prosecutor Joshua Thornton and Homicide Detective Cameron Gates), but also meet new ones as Mac Faraday’s daughter Jessica Faraday and Joshua Thornton’s son Murphy Thornton join the team in the race to get the lovebirds to the altar!*

With three days left to the year, Deep Creek Lake is hopping with holiday vacationers and wedding guests pouring into the Spencer Inn for Mac Faraday and Archie Monday’s huge wedding ceremony which is being touted as the social event of the year.

But droopy flowers and guests who failed to RSVP are the least of Mac’s and Archie’s problems when a professional hit squad hits Spencer Manor to send the groom, Joshua Thornton, Archie’s mother, and Gnarly running for their lives.

With time running out to the big day, Mac Faraday and Spencer’s small police force have to sort through the clues to figure out not only who has been targeted for assassination, but also who is determined to stop everything … FOREVER!

* Three Days to Forever introduces readers to Jessica Faraday and Murphy Thornton, the detectives featured in The Thorny Rose Mysteries.

"Three Days to Forever is a fast-paced thriller that solidifies Carr's standing as a major force in American fiction." - review by David Kinchen, HuntingtonNews.net

"I am, bottom line, amazed at the giant step that places Carr comparable to significant authors whose name slips off our tongues like, for instance, Nora Roberts. Watch this author--she's moving quickly to where her goals are headed... Three Days to Forever has to be, in my opinion, the best of her best! Get it!" - review by Glenda Bixler, Book Readers Heaven
