LOCAL POET by Paul Trembling

Paul Trembling


Rob doesn't know  Laney Grey. But when she steps out in front of his van and dies on impact, his life will never be the same.
He has to know who she was, why she chose to die, and why he had to be part of her death.
To understand her, he must learn to read her poetry. To know her, he must unravel the mysteries of her past.
As Laney's dark secret starts to come to light, and Rob's innocence is questioned, he must learn the truth.
But truth comes at a cost...
Will Robe be the one who has to pay?

Paul Trembling got into the habit of making up stories before he could read or write. Since then, he’s followed a diverse career path, being at various times a seaman, a missionary, a janitor, and a crime scene investigator―but he’s never broken the story-making habit, and has no plans to try. 

A local poet's past is about to emerge, a dark past.  Two live's are about to change and they will never be the same again.   A car accident begins it all.   A woman, Laney Grey, a poet steps in front of Rob's van.   It seems like she intentionally walked in front of the van.  Unfortunately, she dies immediately.  Who was this woman and why did she walk in front of Rob's van?  When the police were called to the scene, they declared it an accident and Rob was cleared of any wrong doing.   But Rob now has to deal with killing this woman.  He didn't even know her.  How is he going to get past this? He feels guilty even though it wasn't his fault. As time goes by, Rob knows he must find out about this woman.  Who was she and what was so bad in her life that she wanted to die?  Was it just fate that she stepped in front of his van instead of someone else's vehicle?   
How will he find out about her?
Her poetry, perhaps it will give him insight about this woman, the woman he killed.  But as he does, he finds that she has a dark past and there are mysteries to solve.  As always, when dark secrets come to light, someone will pay, and pay dearly.   Rob has to know the truth about Laney.  But as I said, there's always a price to pay.  Will Rob pay the price for the truth?
A well written mystery that delves into secrets of the past.  It gives you insight into two minds, Laney's and Rob's.  As you turn the pages you feel like Rob. You must know what Laney is all about and what the truth is.  But you wonder, what sort of price will be paid?

I received a copy of this book from Kregel Blog Tours and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book 4 STARS.
