Book Review: WHAT DOESN'T KILL YOU (A Lauren Beck Crime Novel) by Donna Huston Murray

Lauren Beck’s friends, phone, home, credit and credibility are gone, severed with surgical precision by an enemy intent on framing her for murder. Is it one of the insureds she was hired to investigate? The fellow employee she upstaged? Does the daughter of her landlady and dear friend, Corinne Wilder, hate her even more than she thought? Whoever targeted her should beware. A former cop and cancer survivor knows how to fight for her life.


Lauren Beck is trying to get her life back after being told she is cancer free when her friend, the person who supported her through her fight for cancer doesn't make it. That's bad enough but Corrine's daughter receives a call that accuses Lauren of killing her mother and police officers Lauren worked with before the cancer are now investigating the death and Lauren as the prime suspect.

Lauren just keeps fighting, but there has to be some mastermind behind the events that follow as her credit is affected, her bank account wiped out, and she has nowhere to turn. Fighting for survival before keeps her going despite odds against her. 

The plot is well-developed with twists, turns, and complex paths that Lauren investigates. I look forward to reading more in this crime series.
