Book Review: He Said, She Said Murder

He Said, She Said: He Said, She Said: "Murder" by Jeramy Gates
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Joe and and his very pregnant wife, Tanja, have a wealth of skills as they start their private detective business, but not exactly a lot of money. When their friend and local sheriff takes pity on them and throws them an unsolved cold case they go after it with gusto. What they find may blow them away, both literally and figuratively. Can they solve the mystery without becoming one themselves?

He Said, She Said Murder is written in first person style from alternating viewpoints - him and her. I loved the style of that, especially viewing conflict from both perspectives. But the writing was a little clunky, a lot of repeated words, such as “unfortunately,” and some grammar/spelling errors - nothing a decent editor couldn’t fix quickly. I’m also kind of curious as to whether or not there will be a back story for Joe and Tanja written, as there is clearly some interesting history that brought them to the point where this story starts, and this is the first of a series. I’d love to see that further along as a prequel of some kind. Overall it was a fun, fast read, and I look forward to the rest of the series!
