5 stars for Blue Lady's Mission Under Fire by @StephanyTullis #suspense #womensfiction #bookreview

Title: Blue Lady’s MISSION under FIRE

Author: Stephany Tullis

Genre: Mystery/Suspense, Biographical/Women’s Fiction

Book Blurb:

THE MISSION changed. Her COVER is blown.

With NOWHERE to run and NOWHERE to hide, what can she do to SURVIVE?

This time, two teenagers are killed in a small town in Upstate New York. Instead of celebrating the 4th of July, another community vigil is held to celebrate the dead. As the murder rate spikes along with unseasonably warm temps, a new case is added to the growing list of homicides. Community leaders call another meeting. But no one has any answers.

In Blue Lady’s MISSION under FIRE, Angelica Mason, AKA THE BLUE LADY, along with her faithful crony and sidekick Jonathan C. Jarewski (JaRew), face new challenges and stare down old demons.

Dr. Beckham Johnson, Angelica’s mentor, invites her to lead a controversial demonstration project intended to study violence in small towns but conveniently forgets to tell her that the feds cut the funding for her position. Instead, she and semi-street wise cohort, JaRew discover they are two of a cadre of six hand-picked street organizers expected to go undercover.

It starts with a round of tequila shots and a hip swiveling line dance. Did Angelica hear the shots before she felt the shove? Was it an accident? Or was she the target?

My Review:

Angelica’s identity is blasted to smithereens and without her knowledge, she’s a target in a dangerous game. It’s the middle of summer and the murder rate is heating up in northern New York. Leaders of the community can’t provide any answers, so they call in Angelica Mason and her sidekick known as JaRew. Angelica’s mission is to lead a new project aimed at studying violence in small towns. But when she and JaRew arrive, they’re expected to go undercover. The more they uncover, the deadlier the stakes become. Shots ring out and Angelica realizes someone wants her silenced, no matter the cost. Can she and JaRew figure out who’s behind it all before it’s too late? When her mission is under fire, will Angelica make it out alive?

Blue Lady’s Mission Under Fire is a slow-burn mystery/suspense from start to finish. With issues ripped from current headlines, I whipped through the pages. The plot moved at a good pace with a slow beginning that picked up speed the further you read. I connected with Angelica and JaRew. They’re interesting characters who are thrown in the midst of a cluster. Who is friend and who is enemy? It’s not clear. There’s a biographical vibe to the story which I enjoyed. Stephany Tullis is a brilliant writer who has a talent for building suspense. She also has a flair for creating characters you want to care about, root for, and ultimately grow to love. This is book three in the Blue Lady series but it can be read as a standalone. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more. Highly recommend!
