Where Angels Fear by Sunny Frazier

AngelsFear_comp2Set in the Central Valley of California, author Sunny Frazier once again explores the rich agricultural region, rural law enforcement and crimes shrouded by Tule fog in this sequel to FOOLS RUSH IN.   

            Amateur astrologer Christy Bristol finds herself on the fringes of Kearny society and a members-only sex club as she reluctantly takes on a missing person case. Prominent business man Avery Anders has disappeared and his wife cannot go to the authorities. When the man’s horoscope reveals an affair and mortal danger, she enlists Christy to do an investigation.

            Christy’s day job with the local sheriff’s department is on the line as her investigation crosses paths with several homicide cases and surly Detective Kerwin. Could the cases be connected?

            Aided by best friend Lennie Watkins, the women find themselves on a treacherous trail that leads to the Veterans Hospital, a sex-specialty clothing store, mansions of the rich, and even touches on the Viet Nam War. With only a prescription bottle and matchbook as clues, the young woman must face the Knights of Sensani and her own sexual limitations.

            Christy Bristol must go where angels fear to tread.        

REVIEWS

 If you liked “Fools Rush In” you will love “Where Angels Fear”. Frazier takes us into Christy’s life. Sometimes things are confusing. Sometimes they are embarrassing. But there are wonderful and warm times too. This tale has one of the best, “feel good” endings I have ever read. I laughed and I felt good for Christy. This is a wonderful story and one everyone should definitely read. You won’t be sorry. I give it a 9 of 10 on the Weaver meter.
Enjoy, Sid Weaver

 

Beginning with the stiletto boots and whip on the cover, Where Angels Fear pulls the reader into a labyrinth of death, domination, and fear with just the right number of humorous turns. Frazier has created a character in Christy Bristol that readers will gladly welcome into their living rooms in book after book to see how she grows and to learn more about how she uses her gift for astrology.  Where Angels Fear is a delightful, fun read that proves Frazier has no fear as a writer.

 From its dark, compelling opening, ‘Where Angels Fear’ is an intriguing mystery. Christy makes an appealing and resourceful heroine, with many tangled relationship issues we can all identify with. Her friend Lennie is equally engaging and there are many nice touches of humor when she is investigating. The story moves with great pace, yet at the same time the colors, culture and cuisine of this part of California are excellently described, and overall the novel has great atmosphere. The ending is truly gripping.  Christy’s relationship with her lover also develops and ‘Where Angels Fear’ rounds off with a lovely scene between Christy and Rod. I enjoyed, ‘Where Angels Fear’ very much and I look forward to reading more of this series.

    Sunny Frazier’s first two Christy Bristol books are on my favorite mysteries list. They’re perfectly plotted, the characters, are great fun, and the narrative is seemlessly smooth. Your review is spot-on, Yvonne.

    Both of her novels are great. Where Angels Fear was like reading a J.A. Jance book. Sunny’s also written and published many short stories. Some of these are published in the books, Seven by Seven and also Valley Fever.
