A fantastic hook, great writing voice and quick pace through the entire book. I thought the suspense was right up there among a couple of my favorites of the genre.
To be critical, I thought the ending came a bit soon, or rather we found out who the killer was a bit soon, but as I read further, I thought it was tied up nicely without leaving me as though the ending was just extra words.
Loved the subplots and deeper characterization into the secondary characters. It gave the story depth that impressed me and kept me working harder towards the ending and the transformation of these character’s lives. This is obviously the first in a series that will remain consecutive. The book, of course, gave the happy ending the reader is craving, but left it open enough for coming titles.
The crime is not a complex plot. The true killer didn’t come as a huge surprise to me, but the characters really sold the novel. Being a blogger, I can certainly relate to opening my mouth up on line and then wanting to retract what I said. I thought the occupation of the characters was a break from the norm and cliché.
Overall, I’m pleased with my reading experience. Loved the characters and I’m eager to spend more time with them in soon to be released titles. A must read for suspense/mystery fans.
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers through Booksneeze for my copy to
