Excellently Plotted: The Other Girl by Erica Spindler

by MK French

Miranda Rader is a respected police officer, a far cry from the troubled teen she had been in her hometown of Jasper, Louisiana. She thought she put the past behind her, but it has come back with a vengeance during her investigation of the gruesome murder of a respected college professor. Her fingerprints are found at the scene, as well as a newspaper clipping of the night she escaped a potential attack. Her coworkers and supervisor doubt her integrity, and soon blame her for the murder.

The Other Girl
August 2017; St. Martin's Press; 978-1250083654
ebook, audio, print (256 pages); crime, mystery
This was an excellently plotted mystery.

The relationships that Miranda had with all of the other people in her life are well done, and none of them ring false. She can be stubborn and hurt, especially by those she thought she could trust, and we feel the disillusionment along with her.

I really enjoyed how well this novel was put together, as well as its resolution. I don't want to spoil too many features of the plot or the ending, but I stayed up late to finish this book. As tired as I was the next morning, I didn't regret it one bit.
