I found Teresa Burrell’s writing style to be really easy going, so much so that I read the entire book in a single sitting. I was right there along Tuper and Lana as they tracked down leads and began to build the foundations of their new friendship. Red herrings, murder, mystery, mistakes, secrets, and peril, it doesn’t get better than this to make a good recipe for a mystery story, and Mason’s Missing (A Tuper Mystery Book 1) has them all. You’ll share the frustrations and victories of the characters as they delve deeper into the mystery and unravel the surprising truth about what actually happened. A really strong first book in a series, with just enough information about the lead characters that they remain an intriguing mystery you want to learn more about.
