Review copy provided by Enchanted Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

Toronto’s newest homicide detective, Reggie Swann, seemed to have it all: great career, handsome husband and plans to start a family, until she was framed for murder…

A cop has very few friends in prison.  After surviving ten brutal years behind bars, Reggie’s conviction is finally overturned thanks to her tenacious mother, a new forensic test and a very clever lawyer. She quickly discovers that getting her old life back won’t be as easy as she hoped. To many, she was still as the media had dubbed her: ‘Black Swann – murderer and cop-gone-bad’. The Toronto Police Department still considers her to be a suspect, Reggie’s husband has remarried and the real killer is still on the loose.

Before Reggie can return to Toronto and solve the crime that ruined her life, she reluctantly agrees to investigate a murder in her home town of Penticton, only to discover the two cases which are separated by ten years and five provinces might somehow be connected. Will anyone believe the wild theories of the disgraced detective?

The real murderer does. He framed her once, this time Reggie Swann must die!

Framed is definitely a different kind of thriller. Reggie Swan is a homicide detective who spent the last decade behind bars after being framed for murder. Life in prison for a former cop is anytyhing but easy. Thankfully, after ten years, Reggie’s conviction is overturned, but getting back to her old life isn’t as easy as she hoped it would be.

To most people, she’s still the murderer the media claimed her to be, “Black Swann”. To the police department she once worked for, she’s still a suspect. Her husband has remarried and worst of all, the real murderer is still out there.

Determined to go back and solve the crime that put her behind bars, she’s reluctant to take on another murder investigation first. But when the two cases might somehow be connected, Reggie realizes the real murderer is still out to get her.

Suspenseful from the start, Framed kept me on the edge of my seat while I practically devoured the book. Gripping story and intriguing characters.
