Book Review: Picking up the Pieces by Wendy Dewar Hughes

Author Wendy Dewar Hughes

Wendy Dewar Hughes writes inspirational romantic suspense novels set in contemporary times. For a passionate reader like me,  finding a great book is like discovering a gold nugget while panning for gold.

When my husband finished reading “Picking up the Pieces” by Wendy Dewar Hughes, he passed the book to me, saying, “Now this is a great book.” His endorsement sent me to the pages immediately.  I highly recommend the novel to readers of all ages and genres. Stellar writing craft.  Gripping mystery and intrigue. Did it keep me hooked? Oh yes!

I walked in the protagonist’s shoes, felt fear amidst her dilemmas full of danger, and experienced the international settings through her eyes.  I felt like I was there. I cared deeply, and pulled for her on every page. The story and the characters stayed with me, like real people I know. This writer has gifted readers with a fine piece of work.

Here is a partial quote from the book blurb on Wendy Dewar Hughes website: “Jill Moss is pulling her life back together after her husband’s death when she is shocked to receive a message that her uncle, famed archaeologist Neil Bryant, has made a Mayan archaeological discovery of such consequence that his life is in danger.”  You can read the entire blurb at http://www.wendydewarhughes.com  Enjoy!

Wishing you all good reading, and to writers, great writing, and in addition, the best blessings in 2013.

    Excellent review. It’s always a delight to read a review that tells enough about a book to pique the reader’s interest without giving away the plot. Thank you for your insight and your skills.

      Thank you Jay. Both for the compliment and for stopping by. I don’t post often because I would like to preserve writing time. Folks, rather than checking the blog, subscribe and they’ll get an email when I post. I think the last post was, egad, March?
