Editorial Reviews

Review

"What I loved most about this book -- even beyond the heart-stopping, page-turning suspense -- is how well-drawn Blood's three main characters are... Erin Solomon continues to make impulsive decisions that are completely credible from someone with her combination of brains, determination and occasionally skewed judgment... A terrific read!"
-- Joanne Lessner, bestselling author of the Isobel Spice mysteries

"If you like mystery with sometimes dark and graphic detail, an intricate plot, a love story that is elegiac in is beauty even as the story's action is unrelenting; if you long for smooth, clean writing with a unique sense of humor, then Sins of the Father is for you."
-- Susan Russo Anderson, bestselling author of the Serafina Florio novels

I had read the first book, All the Blue Eyed Angels, which I thoroughly enjoyed, and was anxiously awaiting this one. As others have said this sequel may be better than the first. I generally rotate reading three different books at a time, but about a third of the way through this those others were put aside. Thought I would have to call out from work to get it read! My favorite reads are usually some type of paranormal/scifi books. I have always been enthralled with vampire lore so usually have one of those books on my list. But these two books are so well written, the characters so engaging and the Maine setting so descriptive that you just want to stay immersed in this story.

The murders that are being investigated in the books are very disturbing. Fortunately Ms. Blood can describe them without making the reader queasy enough to not turn the page. And turn the page you will, over and over again. I became so involved with the characters that I was I was actually exclaiming out loud what an idiot Erin Solomon was during several passages. I'm not sure that I've ever actually "spoken" to a written character before! The only downside to these books is waiting for the next one. Amazon may as well put me on a permanent preorder list!!

It's rare for the second book in a series to be as good, let alone better, than the first book. The first book gets all the advantages. As readers we want to like the first book, so we go in with a more forgiving attitude. We forgive poorly developed character, plot flaws, and writer's quirks that would otherwise drive us to distraction because we're too busy being willfully seduced by the charms of a new story and all that it promises. Of course it's the second book that suffers for the literary love goggles we use when reading the first book. The second book need not only stand on it's own merits, it needs to do so while maintaining continuity with the first book's world and characters, and without the benefit of having that new "first book" smell. Basically, the second book in a series needs tell an entirely new and compelling story while carrying all of the baggage of the first book and getting none of the leeway. That is a pretty tall order for any work to meet, regardless of the writer, and it explains why so many sophomore entries in a series are considered 'weak sisters'. Now if you've gotten this far and you're wondering how I felt about this book, wonder no more - NONE of what I just wrote applies to "Sins of the Father" (SotF).

SotF is a home-run in it's own right, and not just as the second entry in a series - in that respect it's possibly the best #2 book I've ever had the pleasure to read. I won't go too deep into plot details, but I will touch on some things that Jen did which managed to truly surprise me. The plot was intricate, layered in complexity and as twisted as any good crime/suspense novel's must be, but it avoided the most common pitfalls that afflict the genre and are a trap for even the best writers.

I finished this book in less than 24 hours. Jen Blood delivered another stunner with "Sins of the Father". The descriptions are detailed but not boring. You can easily visualize the scenes. Fast paced, no time to think about putting this book down for more than a few minutes. As always, she wets your appetite for the next in the series! Great job Jen!

About midway through this sequel, I found myself actually rooting for the psychotic bad guys. The characters of Erin and Kat are completely selfish and childish. Between the two of them and their "issues", there were characters murdered in the first book. I had hoped the author might have developed these characters more for the sequel, be she certainly didn't. Jack and Diggs are a bit easier to care about, though they lack the backbone you might expect an FBI agent and a reporter to have. And the story itself was completely far-fetched. I bought the sequel because the first book left much of its mystery unsolved. The sequel did the same, but I will not be wasting my money on a third book by this author. For much better mysteries, you may want to check out "Primal Fear" or "Silence of the Lambs". I know these books are a bit older, but it seems good books are getting more and more difficult to find these days.

I can only say that if the writer set out to create an exceedingly foolish and frustrating character like Erin Solomon then she succeeded amazingly well. This a very light read and I read it reluctantly after having read the first book in the series, only to find out where it was going. All throughout the read I had to put the book down and ask myself why I was bothering when the lead character was so darn stupid and frustratingly so. In the event the whole mystery of the two books was not resolved and left me wondering why I bothered. Certainly I will not be buying the next book in the series.

I didn't read the first novel in this series so that I did find it most confusing. I must say that I find it annoying when authors draw material from previous novels as then it becomes simply an episode in an adventure and the reader is left without a begining and in this case without an end. I was 3% through the book before I realised that the so called heroine was in fact a woman. It also seems rather a cheap and easy trick to use the same characters, continue the relationships and romances instead of writing a completely new novel. I did think this was why the characters in this book were poorly drawn, however on reading other blogs from readers of the first novel, they also considered the characters poor. Like most readers of adventure or detective novels we really do like, to like our heroes. I couldn't relate to any of these characters and certain aspects of their behaviour simply didn't gel. The mother is a doctor yet has little or no humane feelings,odd in itself. At the same time she behaves like a whore and then becomes a lesbian, also very strange. The two male characters for their positions in the story seemed pretty pathetic to me when it came to handling a rather silly woman. As for Erin the heroine, I cannot think that any man would have put up with her for more than a day and am surprised that Diggs didn't simply leave her in the woods. Then she is so much in love with him that she would rather suffer misery simply to protect him and a few weeks later she is back in the arms of another man. Sorry none of this rings true to life. I did in fact guess who the ringleader was and the two stars are for the fact that I finished the story. However, I am glad I didn't read the first novel and I won't read the next.
