Well, I opened it and did not put it down until I finished it. Great job Alison!
The characters were not one dimensional, they had many sides. The people that showed up were quite the characters. The 'weekly phone call from mom' was GREAT. (I have someone that goes through that).
But for reading = A. For subject matter = A. For keeping my interest = A.
Plus everyone should have a pet - they always grab the eye and keep things 'running'.
Thanks for the book, I truly enjoyed it.
I will gladly shout from the rooftops about how much I enjoyed this book. From page one I was interested in the story and the characters, and couldn't wait to read more. Wolfe was smart and bold, and felt incredibly genuine. Perfect reactions, I'd say she was one of the best, real feeling characters I've read in, well.. maybe ever. I was struck by how accurate Wolfe's police career was portrayed, only to find out the author not only works on the police force, but also offers tips on her blog for authors that want to write accurate police characters. For readers who enjoy comparing characters and book series, I found some similarities between Wolfe and Stephanie Plum, though Stephanie relies almost entirely on luck, and Wolfe has the brains and the guts to solve the case.
I loved the plot, and the mystery was well thought out, with just enough little hints along the way so the ending was a pleasant surprise (I never expected that one!), but not a huge, out-of-left-field kind of shock. My favorite part? When Wolfe's supervisor, Kate, assigned Wolfe to on-call duty as "punishment" for going against her orders. Talk about some great revenge! But you'll just have to read it and find out why. The only issue that made me stumble when reading "Credo's Hope" was the abundance of side characters. While they weren't technically all necessary, they did add a lot to the story, and I was grateful for their presence. There was an occasion or two where a name was mentioned and I forgot who that was, but generally the context was enough for me to pick it up right away.
Recommendation: Definitely recommended! Fans of Procedural/Police fiction and Mysteries will absolutely love "Credo's Hope." I'm not a huge mystery person (just an occasional fan) but this book had me hooked from page one, literally.
Final Rating: FIVE out of FIVE (5/5). Definitely a winning book. The story and characters felt so incredibly real and genuine. Excellent novel, definitely a series and author to watch!
Alex Wolfe. Now THAT is a character, if ever there was one. She is one cop you won't want to miss! I loved the way she handle her situations, especially once she was kidnapped. Yep. She was kidnapped. And, well, let's just say that conducting an investigation isn't always the best thing to do. You can tend to make someone mad....VERY mad. To the point of kidnapping.
Anyway, I loved all the secondary characters as well. Mostly all women, you will fall in love with all the characters as you laugh til you cry at their way of life. Oh, and let's not forget Alex's new nurse friend.....one hunky nurse......who's bisexual. Yea. Okay. Well, you'll have to read it for you self to see just how good this bi nurse fits into the story. You'll be surprised.
So, I highly recommend this novel as 4 Books worthy. You'll laugh til you cry (just a precaution...do NOT drink anything while reading this novel!), you'll turn page after page, ready for each new character, each new twist and each new piece to the puzzle. Alex Wolfe is a character to enjoy, and one who I can't wait to read more about! Fantastic work, Ms. Holt!

The horse on the cover, as I found out while reading, is a racing horse named Credo's Hope. The lady with the gun on the front is Detective Alex Wolfe. So, the cover is an apt depiction of a couple of main character(s) that is in the story.
Alex is an arse-kicking, quick-tempered detective who has a knack for getting into trouble without even trying. Her mother is constantly trying to get her invited to get-togethers where Alex could possibly meet "Mr. Right."
Casey is Alex's work partner. She thinks before speaking and tries her best to get Alex to do the same thing.
Kate is Alex and Casey's boss and finds Alex's antics somewhat humorous, but extremely tiresome. She is a hard boss, but fair.
Megan has been Alex's best friend since pre-K and teaches dog training classes. She helps Alex and Casey on a side investigation that Alex is working on in her spare time.
The story is very engaging and will keep you reading wanting to know more. There seem to be two main plots with a few sub-plots, but it is all kept well organized and does not get confusing at all. As a matter of fact, it is part of what keeps you engaged and continuing to read.
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a good mystery with a strong female lead who can kick arse with the best of them. =)
