Fresh off the emotional rollercoaster that was CLOSE TO HOME, I picked up A DONE DEAL to read next. Luckily A DONE DEAL was released on December 15th, so I didn't have to wait before I got a chance to pick up Savannah's story again.
A DONE DEAL sees Savannah back in Nashville, licking her wounds after her latest adventure. She quickly becomes immersed in investigating Alexandra Puckett's new step-mom-to-be, and trying to avoid getting killed.
I think Savannah describes it best...
"But here I was, back again, and there was a sense of inevitability about it. A feel of fate, of things coming full circle."
This is exactly how I felt with A DONE DEAL. So much has happened since Savannah's first adventure in A CUTTHROAT BUSINESS, but she has very much come full circle. She has grown and matured (yes even when you're well past your teens you can do that!). She's found someone that she wants to spend the rest of her life with, and yet there are so many things blocking her way to true happiness.
I simply love that Savannah is coming around full circle, and that it is clear that a few of the storylines in previous books are being tied up. A DONE DEAL reads like a final book in a series. I'm not sure if Savannah will have anymore adventures to share, but for me I feel like I have read a completely epic, wonderful series with A DONE DEAL bringing it around full circle and being the best book of the series!
I strongly recommend readers to read the Savannah Martin series. Read them in order from A CUTTHROAT BUSINESS onwards. Prepare yourself by taking at least a week off work, loading up your house with chocolate, ice-cream and all kinds of goodies, and settle in to read one of the best mystery series I've read in a long time. They are on-the-edge-of-your-seat adventure, with lots of thrills and toe-curling moments (seriously if Rafe doesn't curl your toes nothing will!).
After finishing A DONE DEAL I feel so happy to have discovered this series, and a little sad that there is no more Savannah for me to discover. Luckily for me there will be plenty of chances to re-read the series!
A DONE DEAL is a 5-star read. It's full of adventure, romance and a must-add to any mystery readers shelves.
