Review: The War Widow by Tara Moss

The War Widow (Also entitled Dead Man Switch in Australia and NZ) by Tara Moss is a historical mystery. Billie Walker’s father passes away and she heads back home to Sydney to take over his PI business, the perfect job for a someone as smart and absolutely full of gumption as she is.

This book is full of action. If you have a life beyond books, you’ll have a hard time finding a good time to put it down. I love Billie. She’s feisty — a characteristic much needed in a male dominated work environment. I enjoyed the fact that while this book is post WW2, which is extremely popular at the moment, it’s set in Sydney, Australia, giving it a different feel. To top everything off, the cover is GORGEOUS! Tara Moss is talented and lovely and I’m glad I read this book.

Reasons I like this book:

Tons of action

Engaging plot line

Strong female lead and a great cast of supporting characters

It’s the first in a series so more adventures to come

Book Quote: “Billie was hoping to get these two alive but was feeling rapidly less stuck on the idea.”

Rating: 3.5 stars
