"Nick of Time: A Bug Man Novel" by, Tim Downs

I finished reading the book “Nick of Time: A Bug Man Novel” by Tim Downs. This is a fiction book that is a murder mystery. Nick Polchak is a Forensic Entomologist, a.k.a bug man, that helps to find clues during suspected murder cases. He has always been shunned by society as being weird and isn’t an easy guy to get along with but he happened to find a woman that liked all of his quirks and has a few of her own as well. Alena Savard is also shunned by society because she chooses to live on a mountain cut off from people where she rescues and trains dogs. Nick and Alena meet through a cold case and end up hitting it off and getting engaged.

One week before the wedding Nick decides to attend a conference where a friend has personally asked him to help in one of the cold cases. When Nick’s friend doesn’t show up at the conference he sets out to find out what happened to him. He gets caught up in the murder case involving his friend while Alena is worried that he may not make it back in time for the wedding.

This book was great because it had me guessing at every turn. I love how unpredictable the book was and as soon as I thought I had it figured out there was more to the story and new evidence was uncovered. I would recommend this book to someone who likes love stories and murder mysteries. I received a free copy of this book for an honest review through the publishers at
