There’s something going on behind the scenes in the small town of Whitecross. The star of the town has been found murdered and there are too many suspects to even count. But one seems to stand out above the rest, the one who was supposed to go diving with him (and didn’t show) the day he died. Brad may have wanted the accomplished diver dead for many reasons, but he’s definitely not the only one and he wasn’t anywhere near the site when the murder happened. But could he uncover more than he expected by looking into the murder and the local women’s club? Limestone Gumption by Bryan E. Robinson is a mystery that will leave you wondering.
Brad is an accomplished young man. He managed to find his way out of a small town and truly make something of himself which is really something to be admired. When he comes back to the town, however, he’s in search of revenge, something that anyone can relate to. It’s easy to understand Brad and where he’s coming from throughout this book. It’s also easy to get caught up in the way that he and the Sisterfriends go about trying to solve the mystery of what really happened to Big Jake because someone wanted him dead and someone was willing to do whatever it took to make that happen. Limestone Gumption is more than just a murder mystery; it’s about finding yourself and truly understanding your past to create your own future.
