After her father took up with a woman from Curacao and her mother passed away, Annie ended up alone and on the streets of Serendipity Island. After getting in and out of trouble, she finally receives medication and a job working undercover for the Justice Department. This time the case is a double murder and everyone’s a suspect, especially her Sudanese boyfriend Samir and his cousin Pepsi. But those awful, distracting voices make her doubt everything, until they hire a special investigator called Mark. That’s when she calls Tess the Avon representative with Attention Deficit Disorder for some coral colored lipstick. Annie’s working hard on the case but she has a newfound interest in her clothing and looks, which help develop confidence while dealing with condescending people who have known her for a long time. With Viking blood coursing through her veins, she knows she’s strong and faces all her fears. Will she crack the case? Read Blood Sister and find out.
Lines such as “You’re crazy as a rabbit with its ears caught in a sewing machine,” or “The sergeant was grinning like a dog eating cat turds,” had me laughing aloud.
This talented author not only pulled me into her story, but also into the scariest place of all: her mind. In other words, it’s a great book and I recommend it.
It’s an interesting and ‘different’ kind of murder mystery. Where typically hard nosed detectives rule Annie is ‘the star’.
Annie not only suffers from schizophrenia she also has not really overcome her beloved mother’s death as well as her father’s taking off and deserting the family (for a younger pretty woman). All of this leads to Annie meandering through life even though she has a part time job working as a private eye.
When two well known residents of Serendipity, a doctor known to drug addicts and the mayor get killed Annie is being put on the case. Both murders are grisly, actually in a way disgusting. Was the killer a whacko drug addict or did the killer try to blame a whacko drug addict? Even more complicated… Were both victims killed by the same killer? (Sorry, I do not post spoilers.) And, is it a coincidence that all of this happens, right before the elections (for mayor)?
Annie will make a transformation when she meets handsome detective Mark. Will they solve the murder (oh, wait… Is Annie a suspect too?)
It took me a bit to get into the book because typically I read ‘Law and Order’ type murder mysteries. This one is a bit different and that’s because Kenna McKinnon has captured the style how schizophrenic people think, a bit ‘all over the place’. For me this made the book a charming murder mystery, never mind the grisly murders.
“… Memories of Mark two days ago surfaced, his lips brushing mine, his tongue searching my mouth. I felt like a whore looking at Samir the way I did now. If Amy Winehouse sang ‘Back to Black’ that would have been perfect, but instead there was the two of us chatting in my little rooms…”
It’s these little thoughts in between, “… if Amy Winehouse sang….”, which add an interesting feminine touch.
On a side note, I figured out Doc’s murderer but the many twists kept me guessing and almost reconsider.
