In their second outing, they set out to uncover the truth about a wealthy summer tourist who announced in advance her husband was a danger to her. At stake also is major art fraud. Throughout, the author reveals the peculiarities and peccadillos of a [...]

    The Tempest is a good old-fashioned police procedural mystery novel. It reminded me of BBC detective shows, many of which I’m completely addicted to. The reader mostly knows who the bad guy is (or is it bad guys?) and is just waiting for the detectives to get with the program already. But don’t fall into that trap. There are a few twists and turns waiting for the reader, although the suspense builds so slowly that it at times seems to disappear altogether, which is often the best kind of thr [...]

    If you are a fan of crime shows such as Castle and White Collar, this book might just be right up your alley! The Tempest is a story about a homicide detective and local pastor who team up to find justice and seek the truth. This story follows the death of a young woman in the small and quiet Tidewater County that leads to a bigger scheme and the mystery of missing Rembrandt painting. This book follows the ins and outs of the local police investigation as well as the sinister plans of the crimin [...]

    A Little Miracle of a Mystery!Are there miracles? And can art dealer Walter Kepler pull one off? That is the crux of THE TEMPEST, a superbly written mystery-thriller by James Lilliefors.The story begins with us eavesdropping in on a conversation held between Kepler and his attorney Jacob Weber. Tantalizing bits of Kepler’s plan are tossed about like bread upon the water, but before we can learn more, the story veers and settles in Tidewater County. It’s a beautiful ocean front community that [...]

    Another Bible-related Mystery Solved!I've always loved mysteries, but James Lilliefors is the first writer to set them in my kind of world. In both this book and The Psalmist he makes a real world church look like it could be part of such a story as well as the ordinary people in it. I further like his character development and his avoidance of unnecessary sex, violence and nasty language. I enthusiastically recommend both books to all my Christian friends!

    I really like Lilliefors' voice. The Tempest does a lovely job telling a "what if" tale about a painting stolen during a famous real-life art museum robbery.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour for a fair and honest review and rated it 4.5 out of 5 Stars.A fan of crime stories solved by partners, I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to read and review The Tempest by James Lilliefores. I had planned to read the first book in the series, The Psalmist, however I ran out of time and decided to just dive into The Tempest. Fortunately for me, this story stood well enough on its own and I was able to enjoy the story, [...]

    Some of the story was good and I wanted to read to the end. However, there seemed to be way too many characters in this mystery and it appeared to drag out a bit with the investigation. I was a bit confused with all of the characters that Hunter spoke with. They began to blur together a bit. It could be that I didn't have a ton of time to read and began reading this in mid October and it is now almost January.

    *I received a free copy from the publisher/author for an honest review*A book which starts off as a simple open and close death case opens a can of worms leading to a pretty complicated story.The book blurb caught my eye inspite of it being too wordy. It might have gone good with the mysterious happenings in the book if it had been shortened.The book started off with a mysterious discussion by Kepler. And that was followed by another mysterious event, Susan's death. From that point, the main sto [...]

    This is the second book in the Bowers & Hunter series, The Tempest. It is the second book in the series and I found it was just as good as his first book. The Psalmist. I enjoyed this book very much. I had a hard time putting it down. I highly recommend this series. The first book, The Psalmist, was a great read for Mystery buffs. I enjoyed James Lilliefors' writing and i was very surprised the way the book ended. The characters, Luke Bowers (the pastor) and Amy Hunter (the homicide dectecti [...]

    This is the second book I've read by this author, the first being "The Psalmist, " which I enjoyed very much. Same goes for this title. Mr. Lilliefors has a great writing technique that paints vivid word pictures and puts the reader in the center of the action. He knows how to build a plot and keeps you turning pages. There are plenty of twists and turns and never a dull moment. I like the fact that while he's weaving a mysterious web, the author also gives glimpses into the personal lives of hi [...]

    Another Super SuspenseAn unique friendship between a married Methodist minister and a young smart female homicide detective is again a central theme in the second book in a series. The minister is the only person she can completely trust to talk with about a case because multiple bureaus are involved in multiple states. The author wove a fascinating story about stolen paintings and a number of deaths because a few people knew too much. A fascinating piece is the fact that the theft of multiple p [...]

    This is book two in the Bowers and Hunter series, and whilst I haven't read book one The Psalmist, this definitely was easy to read as a stand alone book. When a wealthy summer visitor to the town confides in Luke that she fears her husband is going to hurt and subsequent ends up dead, he contacts Amy and the duo come together on a case that involves organized crime and stolen art masterpieces.This was a great mystery thriller and had me drawn in form the very beginning and although the ending m [...]

    Really enjoyable Really enjoyable and well written. Liked the twists and turns in the plot and if I had had the time, would have read it all in one sitting. Felt drawn into the plot, wondering where the relationship between Amy and Luke will go.

    Another good oneI really liked this because once again the author keeps you guessing. But another reason is that art isn't a typical subject for a murder mystery so that brought a new aspect and dimension.

    Carolinia DeLacey
    Quite enjoyable This follows The Psalmest, and was well worth waiting for. There are many things I learned and a story with characters I'd come to know and follow. Well written and very interesting leaving you wanting more to read by this author.

    Pat
    A generous 3 stars. There was nothing actually wrong with the book but it was rather flat and listless. The big twist was not so big. And although the characters were pleasant enough I still struggles to finish this rather dull book.

    Patty Hornby
    Great readI love how clean this book is. I believe the author knows that you don't need sex and gore to write a good story. I can't wait to read more of this particular series.

    Irene Fischer
    The book was alright. I may try reading another book by this author. I enjoyed the minister and the detective. Just was okay to read –no regrets for using my time this way.

    ReviewNot my favorite in this series. Didn't care for characters nor their objective. I would still get another book by this author tho.
