The Cover Story (A Branigan Powers Mystery Book# 2) by Deb Richardson-Moore
Little description: A bizarre hit-and-run brings Branigan Powers back to the crime-solving beat
A fatal crash involving two college students heading home for the holidays seems like an unfortunate accident. But when the surviving girl wakens, she tells a curious story of the vehicle that forced them off the road–an old-fashioned, 1950s-style hearse.
Reporter Branigan Powers delves into the mystery that takes her to the college campus, and leads her into dangerous fraternity and sorority pledge parties.
Reunited with the homeless Malachi Martin, who is so adept at seeing what isn’t there rather than what is, Branigan must uncover what is really going on at the college before other students are put in danger.
This second installment in the author’s first cozy mystery series delves into the world of newspapers and life on the streets–both of which the author knows well.
Genre: Mystery/ Detective/ Christian Fiction

My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5
Even though this is the second book from the book series, I was surprised that it didn’t feel like I have missed something… The smooth and just enough details pulled me into the invisible story line, that the last thing I thought was how could I finish the book already. The story itself was well planned and well paced, like a mystery calls for. Amazing work… I loved all characters: foes and friends, detectives and reporters, collage students and homeless, church folks and doctors…My favorite would be Malachi and Branigan…. What a team!
The story itself just let me submerged into it deeply that I forgot to put a bet who did the murders, and yes there were couple of them, sadly!
The end had no loose ends and everything was uncovered what was hidden at the beginning..
PS. Kregel has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.
