When Death Draws Near ~ Review


Gwen Marcey takes death in stride. Until she’s faced with her own mortality.
Forensic artist Gwen Marcey is between jobs when she accepts temporary work in Pikeville, Kentucky—a small town facing big-city crime. But before Gwen can finish her first drawing of the serial rapist who is on the loose, the latest witness vanishes. Just like all the others.
Gwen suspects a connection between the rapist and the “accidental” deaths that are happening around town, but the local sheriff has little interest in her theories. When her digitally-obsessed teenage daughter joins her, Gwen turns her attention to a second assignment: going undercover in a serpent-handling church. She could get a handsome reward for uncovering illegal activity—a reward she desperately needs, as it seems her breast cancer has returned. But snakes aren’t the only ones ready to kill. Can Gwen uncover the truth—and convince anyone to believe her—before she becomes a victim herself?
In a thrilling race against time, When Death Draws Near plunges us into cold-case murders, shady politics, and a den of venomous suspects.


"When Death Draws Near" is the 3rd book in Carrie Parks,  A Gwen Marcey Novel series. Having said that, when reading I didn't feel lost at any point because I haven't read the previous 2 books.  If anything, I'm dying to read them and will definitely be downloading them ASAP!! 

Gwen is a hoot! Her life is crazy and chaotic and despite kicking cancers bootie once, only to have it return, she doesn't let that stop her...NOT. AT. ALL. She is a forensic artist and while in between jobs she takes a temporary job that brings out some of the craziest things I think I've ever read about in a church and in this town!  But like I said, Gwen doesn't let much stop her no matter what the situation, even if the Sherriff doesn't really even want her there, let alone handling the case!! To add to everything, her daughter comes to live with her, and Gwen's determined to close this case, all the while keeping her daughter safe!!

I think this book a AWESOME! I will most definitely be reading the first 2 books in this series and I think I just might have found a new author that I LOVE!! You will NOT be able to put this book down and as far as thinking you have it figured out, she just might surprise you!! She sure did me :)

Thank you Litfuse for allowing me this complimentary book in exchange for my honest opinion! It is a DEFINITE ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥'s FOR SURE!!
