Product Description

About the Author

In her debut novel, Anne Kennison keeps readers guessing until the end. Her plot's unique twist comes from a fertile imagination honed by 20-plus years as a trusts and estates attorney. Now retired from the practice of law, Anne lives in Richmond, Virginia, with her husband Dale and two Ragdoll cats Grady and Elliott. When Anne's not writing, she loves to travel, dabble in photography, and play with her two adorable granddaughters.

HASH(0x981a7c24) out of 5 stars Smart & Suspenseful 29 Mar. 2015
By Libby Gill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved that this book tapped into a little-known legal loophole as its premise. The main characters are so well drawn and the plot is so full of twists and turns, you really have no clue who the good guys and bad guys (and that includes the gals) are until the very end. Ripe for a sequel, I hope we see more from debut author Kennison very soon!
HASH(0x981a7e70) out of 5 stars A fascinating and well-written read that is guaranteed to become a best seller! 1 Dec. 2015
By Anita Lock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Wealthy CEO, Gordon Taylor, is murdered a few months after his seventh wedding anniversary. While the nuptial year offers no immediate significance, his bereaved wife, Jessica, knows that her marriage to Gordon is designed to be short-lived—part of the arrangement in the ultra-guarded Romance, Ltd. partnership. Detective Ryan Patrick Hamlin, who handles the case, is at a complete loss with a growing list of possible suspects and no incriminating evidence. Five months later, Ryan receives his first tangible data. Although delighted with the find, Ryan’s sleuthing stirs up a flurry of convoluted events before he is able to pinpoint the real culprit.

Rising mystery writer Anne Kennison spins a unique twist to the concept of romance in her debut novel. Kennison’s third person narrative centers principally on Detective Hamlin, Jessica, and—to a lesser, but equally important, degree, Mavis Strong, Jessica’s so-called “partner in crime.” Surrounding her main players with a colorful foiled cast, Kennison provides her audience with reader “windows” into the lives of three very different individuals—all who have personal struggles, yet have distinct viewpoints on romance—amid a heinous crime investigation.

Ryan, a hard-boiled detective, has his own behind-the-scene issues, when his life goes awry after the love of his life dies and conflict erupts after he is left to raise his only son. Entering into magnificent wealth, Jessica’s lifestyle drastically changes when she marries Gordon—the man she’s not expected to love, but does anyway. And then there is Mavis, who is the mastermind behind the covert partnership—her solution to getting out of her fraught middle-class environs.

Dividing her plot into three sections, Kennison sets the stage for the crime scene and the over-five-month investigation before delving into past events that lead up to Romance, Ltd. and then fast-forwarding to the present. Her writing style is a wonderful blend of storytelling and relational interactions between characters, which is set within tightly formed dialogue. Kennison keeps her readers engaged by alternating character scenes and slowly, but deftly, developing her characters, while throwing a plethora of red herrings into the narrative mix.

Kudos to Kennison for scripting a fascinating and well-written read that is guaranteed to become a best seller!

HASH(0x978f20cc) out of 5 stars Carefully vet your "intended" 4 April 2015

This is a fast, fun read. Plot centers around a very, very clever way to get rich (and I assume it is legal
as the author's bio indicates she is an attorney). Had no idea who-did-it until the reveal. Kept me
guessing until that point.
HASH(0x978f2270) out of 5 stars Read this novel 24 May 2015
By Paul L Steinberg - Published on Amazon.com

I just finished reading Death by Romance, a novel by Anne Kennison. While I have to be honest and mention that I am not a fan of murder mysteries, I have to say that death by romance caught my interest from the first page and kept me going right to the end. It is a splendid whodoneit. It is extremely well written with great discriptive nuance and lots of the kind of details that make the story interesting. In fact, the romance concept is intriguing. The characters are well defined and share a wealth of emotions. They are human with both good points and flaws which serve to make them real to the reader. As someone who lives in the Richmond area, the plot points that included nearby locations made the story even more accessible, though I don't think you lose a lot if you are not familiar with our city. I can strongly recommend death by romance and hope you will give it every consideration.
HASH(0x978f2648) out of 5 stars Stunning suspense! 7 Aug. 2015

Awesome! A suspenseful murder mystery that kept me turning pages! The characters are well defined, no surprises from their actions and the final twist made perfect sense when it happened but at no point did I see it coming. I was as confused as the detective, wondering if he had the right guy or if it was this guy or maybe that woman....it was great!

As an independent reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock, I have to give this five fangs even though its not my normal genre. While I do read and enjoy mysteries, it's an occasional thing. This one kept me interested from the first chapter to the last. It's great for all ages, too. Any murder mystery lover on your friends list will enjoy this!
