A little short of the Connor Grey books, but solid,

This review is from: Skin Deep (Laura Blackstone, Book 1) (Mass Market Paperback)
I've got a bit of a split view of Skin Deep. On the one hand it definitely held my attention and kept me turning the pages. The lead character is interesting and it's a well-crafted mystery in terms of keeping the reader guessing to the end. Also, typical of the author's prior work, there's action from start to finish. On the other hand, I'm a fan of Del Franco's Connor Grey books and this one comes up a little bit short. Maybe it's a question of location connection for me (I work in the area of Boston which is the main focus of the Connor Grey series, while this one is based in DC). Maybe it's just a question of the supporting cast and elements just not being quite so well fleshed out. Whatever the case, I just didn't get as absorbed into the story in this book as in the earlier ones. I'm willing to give the next title a try, though. I'd give it a 3.5 star rating if I could.
