BURNING GREED: a gripping murder mystery, full of suspense (DI Tanya Miller investigates Book 2) by Diane M. Dickson, 5 stars.

This is a very good suspense/murder mystery story. Tanya and her team of investigators must solve the case of a body found in a burned out building. At the same time, Tanya’s niece goes missing. While her focus is on the murder victim, she finally decides to go look into her niece’s disappearance. The multiple things happening between the two cases means there is never a dull moment. On top of that, there is Tanya herself. She feels she needs to prove herself in her job, and struggles with the family she has left.

The characters are written very well, they seem like real people. While some of them annoy me more than others, I believe this was done on purpose. There is room for them to grow and I cannot wait to see their progression in future books. The story has so much going on, you will not be bored for an instant. You will be left somewhat happens next until the end.

If you are a fan of suspense or murder mysteries where the police try to solve what is going on, then this book is for you.

Burning Greed is the 2nd book in the DI Tanya Miller Investigates series by Diane M Dickson. I did not read the first book, but still enjoyed this one, so it can be a stand alone. There are some suggestions toward previous cases, and it likely lays the groundwork for the character relationship dynamics, but it is written in a way that you can hop into the series. The book follows Tanya Miller, as her team investigate a warehouse fire. She takes a small detour to help search for her missing niece, leaving her feeling torn between work and family. She has a solid team she feels comfortable leaving her friend Charlie in charge, but is eager to get back to her case. Upon returning, she sees there is not much progress made, and is feeling the pressure. There are a lot of pieces, but they don’t seem to even fit together in the same puzzle. Could it just be coincidence, or is there a missing piece? I like the writing style and the characters. There is enough detail and mystery to keep the reader hooked. I look forward to reading more.

Burning Greed by Diane M Dickson is my first book by this author. I found her writing style to be flowing and suspenseful. She kept me on the edge of my seat. DI Miller character drew me into the story. I felt like I was with her throughout the investigations. DI Miller is torn between her job as a fire investigation and being an aunt. What an impossible decision to make? Will DI Miller’s team be able to investigate the murder? Will DI Miller locate her niece before anything happens to her? Will there be dirt coming out of the investigations that DI Miller cannot hide? I highly recommend this story. I know I am going to read the other stories written by Diane M Dickson.

BURNING GREED: a gripping murder mystery, full of suspense by Diane Dickson is the second book in the DI Tanya Miller Investigates series. I had not read the first book and enjoyed this one immensely. This can be read as a standalone but I’m sure it is even better having the first book already read. Tanya Miller is up to her eyeballs with two cases. First is an arson investigation bringing out the worst about people. The second is her missing niece her sister is frantic to find. Can Tanya keep it all together and solve both cases?
I really enjoyed the story and the characters. The story kept me reading because I had to know what was going on between both cases. I also enjoyed Tanya and the secondary characters. This is a good read that kept me up late one night reading. I look forward to catching more from this author in the future.

BURNING GREED: a gripping murder mystery, full of suspense (DI Tanya Miller investigates Book 2) by Diane M. Dickson is a crime mystery story-where we follow DI Tanya Miller who investigates a horrible murder along with her team. I was a definitely frustrated with a few of the characters and I wanted to give them a good shake and sometimes a little something else. I felt that some of them didn’t have the development needed to make the story stronger but that may come in other books in the series.

With mayhem and mystery, drama and intrigue, and high strung emotions and the team striving to catch a killer gives a thriller feeling. I have not read this first book in this series but didn’t feel I was missing anything. It is a game of cat and mouse and a whodunit story with a side story of DI Millers family drama, her missing niece. The story is well thought out and is an intriguing read that certainly keeps you on your toes.

DI Miller is feeling the pressure when in the middle of a murder investigation her niece goes missing. Even though she is kept in the loop with the investigation but it’s not the same as being there. Will she find her niece before it’s too late? Will they be able to piece it all together before anyone else is murdered?

I look forward to seeing where the story goes.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I initially cracked the binding of this book, I thought i had it solved within the first few pages. which I believe is where the author wanted my mind to go. THEN as the story unfolded and I was 100% wrong with what I thought. THAT’S the sign of a good story.

I go back and forth on this one. It was extremely detailed but the as the story unfolded I lost my compassion for the female protagonist. It seemed like there were a lot of unnecessary risks (and yes, I am aware this is fiction) taken that could have ended very different.

The characters are well developed and with the exception of a few little hiccups (which could have been the mental space I was in), the story flowed well from beginning to end. I had very little empathy while reading the story but it was a decent tale to escape into on a snowy day.

Burning Greed by Diane M. Dickson
4 Stars!!!!

I have to admit that this is way out of my comfort zone. I don’t really go for murder mysteries but I have to admit that this book was an on your edge of your seat page turner. I like how the author draws out the drama and has the reader glued to the book as you want to see who done it. I also have to admit that I appreciated the fact that it wasn’t an obvious outcome.

I found that I felt as though I was right alongside the detectives as they investigated the case. I also found that I could relate to DI Tayna Miller. I also found it very interesting and unique how the author wove the family drama into the book and how it added to the suspense. I found that there was a really good mix of emotions playing in this book and a lot of drama with underlying drama. This made this book a good read. I do look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

Burning Greed is book two in the DI Tanya Miller Investigates series by Diane M. Dickson. This is a crime and investigation story- with police procedural elements, drama, suspense, some intrigue, tension, and some fast-paced ‘action’. This may be the second book in the series, but it can be read as a standalone. The cover and the title really drew me to this book, and as Ms. Miller is a new-to-me author, I was also excited to explore her work. Having now read this book, I will definitely continue with the rest of this series, as well as going back and reading book one.
The story follows DI Tanya Miller as she investigates her latest case. One of arson and murder- but Ms. Dickson doesn’t stop there- adding another mystery for Tanya to solve, one that hits close to home, as her niece has gone missing. So, this book is really more like two stories in one- with plenty going on to hold your interest. The story is well constructed, with an intriguing plot. There were surprising developments which I didn’t see coning, and I was left guessing ‘whodunit’ right till the reveal.
I found it a little difficult to connect with Tanya at the beginning, which frustrated me, because I always want to feel drawn to my MC’s and invest in them and their story. But little by little, I began to warm up to her, and by the end I came to understand her much better than at the beginning. I am hoping that as I continue the series, I will be able to invest in her more. But don’t get me wrong, this didn’t prevent me from enjoying the story and trying to predict how everything would play out in the end. I look forward to reading the rest of this series, as well as exploring any other work/s by Ms. Dickson.

Thank you, Diane M. Dickson.
