Off Kilter is the exciting sequel to M. Lee Musgrave’s first mystery novel, Brushed Off.
This romantic thriller packs the right amount of art, romance, and mystery that keeps its readers intrigued with every chapter it throws. From the start of the book, the author’s writing style will have readers drawn further into the storyline and drama. The author has a fantastic method that mixes creative and descriptive writing, beautifully enhancing the imagination of readers for each setting and what takes place in it. Furthermore, the way each clue was gradually given was well thought out, unlike some mystery novels that offer a “savior” in the novel that immediately solves the mystery. Instead, this allows the audience to piece together the mystery in their own time, identify the culprit, and bask in theories based on what they have read.
“Lee Musgrave’s moving new novel, Off Kilter, highlights our shortcomings in how we treat each other and subtly draws lessons from that process. His observations about human behavior are astute … he writes with a dexterous rhythm and has a natural ear for lived-in dialogue. Off Kilter develops in unexpected directions, avoiding cliches and moralizing messaging while buzzing with an undercurrent of loves burning potential to overcome all adversity.”
