Dying Brand

Dying Brand - Wendy Tyson
Or maybe he’d just keep going, trying hard to avoid anything that smelled like change . Because his last thoughts before drifting off were about change. It was coming, and there wasn’t a damn thing he could do to stop it.

I read the previous book in this series months ago so I was a bit lost when I started this (that is not a criticism of the book but of my poor memory). I did start to remember the previous events and who all the characters were a few chapters in and that is when I really started to warm up to the book.


Allison Campbell is back and she is once again throwing herself in the middle of an investigation that could possibly be harmful to her. A previous client of hers, whom she had a relationship with, is found dead and Allison can't help but feel like the facts aren't adding up. Not only could she be physically harmed but this might also tear apart her relationship with her ex husband turned boyfriend, Jason.


I really like reading about Allison but her need to investigate and solve mysteries can be a bit frustrating at times. When everyone tells her to let it go she pretty much ignores them. I love her relationship with Jason but it felt like it was all over the place in this book. You could get whiplash from how they were acting.


I once again enjoyed the point of view changes and the fact that some of my favorite secondary characters were back. At first I didn't really like the plotline with Allison's sister Amy but then it grew on me the more Amy's daughter Grace appeared in the story. I really like what happened with Grace in the end and am excited to see what is in store for her.


As far as the mystery is concerned, I felt like it wasn't hard to figure out the people behind everything but the why was a mystery to me. I enjoyed trying to figure out why and liked the action towards the end.


I look forward to reading more of this series and to seeing what crazy investigation Allison becomes a part of next. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.
