"Valley Of Ashes" by Cornelia Read was a really excellent mystery read. This
novel had my attention from the first page and didn't lose any of it until the last word. I really enjoy this fourth book in the Madeline Dare series in that it brought the reader some fun, dark but yet a well written and even a personal read. For these two people...Dean and Madeline (Maddie/or Bunny) you would have thought that they had it all but that was not the case...for they had two only daughters (twins)..around one, a home that was 'perpetual mess,' money was tight, and a good night of sleep often was out of the question. Then, Madeline is offered a job at the local newspaper as a freelancer where she would critic restaurants. It was then that Madeline gets interested in a series of fires around the area...that come very close in that this story will reveal a series of arson attacks that blows up and the far-reaching effects will lead directly to the front door of Madeline and Dean. This is where I say you must pick up "Valley Of Ashes" to see what mystery comes from this excellent read. "Valley Of Ashes will have a very intriguing ending that will only leave you saying Wow.... I didn't set that coming! And the characters were all so well developed with a 'real psychological insight' only making this read more of a mystery.

If you are looking for a good mystery that has marriage problems,young ones,
feeling isolated in a new city, fires being set and even murder... you have come
to the right place because "Valley Of Ashes" will take you there...and YES,
I would recommend this novel as a excellent read.
