CROSSED by C. J. Graves

A murder on church grounds.  Two young people in the congregation dead and one the accused.  Could Eric really have murdered his girlfriend?  All evidence pointed to him, but his parents knew it wasn't so, and they hired a private detective.

Jayden, an army veteran, was the one hired to solve the case and to free Eric's name.  She had been asked by her sister to investigate and to try to find the real killer. And boy was Jayden ruthless...if you had her on your tail, you were not going to get away with anything. :)

CROSSED is a little slow at first, but don't give up.  The characters get interesting and are perfect for the storyline.  Jayden definitely was different in her own way and Miss Mildred will warm your heart.  Ms. Graves did a splendid job with will feel like you were right there on the scene with her detailed and wonderful images.   Some of the characters from Light the Way church were odd and a bit out of character for church members, but all in all the story flowed nicely. Finding out who the real murderer was turned out well even though at one point it became obvious.  :)

The ending was gripping and a page turner as you feared for Jayden in the clutches of the murderers....yes plural...more than one. 

If you can see yourself through some of the scenes, this book is a great mystery with a good storyline, clever plot, humor, and a few twists. 4/5

This e-book was given to me free of charge by the author in exchange for an honest review.


  1. I don't read a lot of thrillers, but this sounds kind of cool... murderer[s] at church... I knew there was a reason I didn't like to go on Sundays!

  2. Thank you for your review. And so close to the holidays--who has time to do this?! It was worth the wait. :-)
