review: invisible literature by Barbara Jordan

“The final mystery is oneself.” - Oscar Wilde

Invisible Literature
Arie Loste's godmother Mrs. Donright is hospitalized after she fell down the stairs in her opulent home. Arie and Mrs. Donright’s granddaughter Larrine suspect foul play but are clueless as to who was responsible for the dastardly deed. as facts begin to unravel, Arie, Larrine and Mrs. Donright are caught in a web of lies, deception and intrigue.
Invisible Literature, published by Dorrance Publishing, is only a 90-page mystery story yet it is crammed full of secrets and twists.
i love thrillers and mysteries. the book started out really well but after a few chapters i had to struggle a bit. there is nothing wrong with author Barbara Jordan's writing. in fact, her vocabulary is great but i found some details redundant and some character descriptions overly dramatic. i felt that these weakened the plot and should have been trimmed down. even the blossoming romance between Arie and her godmother's doctor lacked depth and i could not feel the connection between them.
nevertheless, i finished the book to find out how everything turned out for the protagonists. i still have some issues and questions though but stating them here would only lead to spoilers and i would not want to deprive other people of their reading pleasure.
after all, a mystery book would not be called one anymore if i did just that.
