Editorial Reviews

Review

"She's writing fast-paced, contemporary, young adult mysteries, with a unique, fascinating heroine, and fills her stories with lots of twists, turns, and science, which all make them stand out."
Judge, 22nd Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards.


"The author clearly has an amazingly apropos background to write a forensic-based murder mystery series and to have a teenage heroine who is exceptionally intelligent and interested in science is a fabulous idea. She obviously has strong writing chops."

I watch Big Rich Texas and really like the author. I ended up receiving 3 of Dr. Bon's books for Christmas and this is the first one that I read. The book is very good and I definitely recommend it! You instantly are sucked up into the story line as the story jumps right in. You cannot end up really liking the main character, Fionna, as well. She is very likable. The story progress with plenty of twists and turns and leaves you with an ending you do not see coming. This is a nice, easy read that I could not put down. I will be starting the second novel in the series next!

Fiona Frost is a delightful character, clever and spirited and so easy to get attached to. The story is full of unexpected twists and turns that keep you on your toes, and I really enjoy the forensic aspect. It's got the usual high school drama that comes with Fiona being a teenager but never at the expense of her character. As she and her fellow students work to solve the murder I found myself pulled in and totally unable to set this aside for a second.

Blossman does a fantastic job bringing the sights and scenes to life with descriptive prose and a fast pace that keeps things exciting. Obviously it's written for the younger crowd but the writing and plot are sharp enough to keep readers of all ages entertained.
