a pretty good read,
This review is from: One Deadly Sin (Mass Market Paperback)
Edie Swann left Redbud after her father embezzled money from the company he worked for and the committed suicide. But Edie knows there is more to the story than this, so she goes back to Redbud to dish out a little revenge. She is no longer a little girl, but a leather wearing, tattooed biker chick who draws a lot of attention, especially that of the Sheriff in the town. The problem is that the Sheriff's father is one of the people who may have been involved in whatever happened to her father. To make things even more complicated, the people on her list start to die and now she has to confront the fact she may have stirred up more than she can handle.
I have to be honest, I liked Edie sometimes, but not all the time - and same for Holt. I found them both stubborn and short sighted. I mean really, what did she expect to happen when she came back to town? Leave these guys a "souvenir" of what she THINKS they did and hope they freak out and confess. I found her "plan" to be very juvenile and poorly thought out. However, you have to admire her loyalty to her father. Also, I liked Holt, but was never really crazy about him. He seemed too cut and dried for me. And the romance between Holt and Edie happened really quickly for someone who was intent on revenge and a guy with a daughter who has moved back in with his parents. With so much going on in both their lives it just felt rushed and maybe more like lust than love. Also, the bad guy - very weird. I am not sure I really got the whole motive.
However, all that aside, as you can tell from the ratings, I did enjoy the book. It was fast paced, and well told. You got drawn in despite the problems I mentioned above (or at least I did). So give this a book a chance if you have some free time on your hands and want a romantic suspense/thriller that doesn't require a lot of thought.
