Pump it Up Blog Tours: Revelations...A Jane Perry Novel

Sincerest apologies to my audience, to Tracy at Pump it Up and Laurel Dewey for the late review. I still love Blogger but he has been naughty lately.

The small, upscale Colorado town of Midas had barely registered on Sergeant Detective Jane Perry’s radar before her former boss and current colleague told her she needed to join him there for a case. All she knew was that it was a long way from Denver — both in terms of physical distance and sensibility. Jacob Van Gorden, the fifteen-year-old son of a prominent area businessman, has disappeared, and all signs point to his abductor being Jordan Copeland, a man who committed a similar crime decades ago. There are indications that Jacob is still alive, so the clock is ticking, but as Jane investigates Copeland, she begins to have doubts about his guilt. And at the same time, she begins to uncover trails of devastating – and even deadly – secrets all around Midas.
Meanwhile, Jane must deal with two considerable secrets of her own. One hits her like a left cross before she leaves Denver, and the other creeps up on her from the most unlikely of places. On top of this, Hank Ross, owner of a bar in Midas, has somehow managed to find a way beneath Jane’s armor-plated defenses, forcing her to contend with feelings she hasn’t allowed to surface for a very long time.
Revelations is the most powerful and personal Jane Perry novel yet. Teeming with the passions and ambiguities that make Laurel Dewey so compelling to read, it is a breathtaking story of mysteries revealed and withheld.


Revelations is the third in series that now I will now be added to Mt TBR. Jane Perry is one of many characters that resonate with a reader. While this is a series Laurel does and amazing job of providing enough background that it's perfect as a stand alone. Now I know the 464 page count can be daunting but take it from this reader you will zip right through it. In fact I actually was skimming a little to my own embarrassment because I HAD to know what happened next.

As an author I have a tremendous amount of respect for Laurel concerning the blurb. I can't even write the review for fear I will give something away. So here's the skinny. Read the flipping book. But I would start with the other two prequels first just because it's always fun to read a series in order.
