“In Fatal Deduction, Gayle Roper has expanded on her trademark style of honest characterization and intriguing plot twists. She creates characters with real human flaws and shows those characters learning to forgive, giving me hope that this might even happen outside the pages of a novel. An excellent read that I could not put down.”
– Hannah Alexander, author of Double Blind and Hideaway Home

“A two-word phrase to describe Gayle Roper’s latest book? Page-turning! Fatal Deduction had me from the opening line, to the clue-dropping crossword puzzles, straight through to the inspiring and breathtaking end.”
 - Tamara Leigh, author of Splitting Harriet and Faking Grace

“I’ve been a Gayle Roper fan for many years and this is her finest book. I was handcuffed to the characters, chained to the suspense and intrigue, and imprisoned in the plot.”  
 - DiAnn Mills, author of When the Nile Runs Red and Awaken My Heart
“Gayle Roper unravels a mystery, filled with twists and surprises, in a Philly neighborhood populated by quirky, delightful characters. Libby’s spiritual journey is evidence that God can redeem the past, keep regret from consuming us, and teach us to love difficult people. A charming Ben Franklin historian, crossword puzzles, and a peek into the world of antique dealing add elements of fun to this unique mystery.”
– Sharon Dunn, author of the Bargain Hunters Mysteries

Fatal Deduction is a poignant and madcap ride, Gayle Roper style. This romantic mystery is a captivating combination of an intricate plot and well-rounded characters facing extreme family issues. Roper crafts the multiple relationship layers with compassionate insight, even for characters you’d like to slap. And she never loses sight of the burning question: Who left the body and the crossword puzzle on the doorstep and why?”
– Jill Elizabeth Nelson, author of the To Catch a Thief series
