On My Nightstand - Last Chance for Justice by Kathi Macias

A recently widowed woman, an attentive daughter, and a mystery combine into a story that will touch your heart. The relationship between Lynn Myers and her daughter, Rachel, reminded me so much of my mother and me.

Kathi got the details and emotions right. The grieving had me nodding my head and saying, "I remember feeling that way." She also accurately depicted the enormous stress of making life-altering decisions after the death of a spouse.

The two women go back to Lynn's hometown where she re-connects with her roots. Rachel meets two handsome men, who both want to pursue a future with her. In the midst of these scenarios, a mystery unfolds. They're intrigued, and it soon becomes a passion to right an old wrong.

This book is the first in a series by multiple authors, each one a stand-alone novel. I enjoyed it and recommend this book for those, who appreciate character-driven fiction with a light mystery.

Writers:  If you write fiction, do you gravitate toward character-driven or plot-driven stories?

Readers:  Which type do you prefer? Do you like stories where the characters and relationships are paramount or where the plot gets the focus?
