Guest Review by Sal
An absolute thriller of a detective mystery that will leave you desperate for more! “Where No One Will See” by Felicia Watson is the kind of novel that makes you fall in love with the characters and leaves you guessing until the very last page.
Lucia Scafetti is striking out on her own, and trying to make it without her family’s interference for the first time in her life. Growing up in a well known crime family, Lucia is trying her best to get her private detective agency off of the ground and build a better name for herself, but first she has to find some new clients.
Luckily, two lawyers move into her building, and she quickly befriends them. Lucia really hits it off with one of them, a man named Hank, and the two begin dating. However, everything in Lucia’s life is thrown into jeopardy when her father, who has been incarcerated for many years, shows up on her doorstep asking for help.
When he goes missing a day later, Lucia has to put everything she has into solving the case before she and her friends are put in danger, too.
I had a great time reading this and a great time trying to figure out the resolution to the mystery before the ending! Felicia Watson has a great talent for writing compelling mysteries, and an even greater one for writing refreshing and delightful characters. I found myself rooting for Lucia from the very first chapter and was really hoping that she and Hank ended up together in the end.
I won’t spoil the ending for you, but I think any reader would be happy with the way things work out. I’m giving all the stars to this magnificent novel, and I hope that Felicia Watson writes more mysteries like this in the future! It would be fantastic if we hear from Lucia again so, hopefully, there will be a sequel in the works!
