Lorne is having a few problems with her marriage. Typical cop spouse fed up with coming second place to the job and this is not made easier owing to her love-hate relationship with a sexy French pathologist.
I had absolutely no problem understanding why this book is a NY Times bestseller. The characterisation and dialogue is so vivid it brings the kindle to life in your hands. The plotting is intricate and leads you carefully through winging paths of dead ends and differences of opinion with a few somewhat grisly surprised along the way. I certainly didn’t see the denouement coming.
This is a series to read and enjoy so I am very much looking forward to getting to the next instalment..and the one after,,,well you get the drift.
I did take away 2 stars because of the personal relationship aspects of the book. I just found it terribly unbelievable. I can't follow the hot/cold relationships this woman has. One minute her husband is throwing her down on the bed, the next he won't talk to her. One minute she hates the hot French ME, the next she's practically falling all over him. She says she wants to fix her marriage, but the second her husband takes her daughter out of town she's spends the whole weekend holding hands w/the hot French doctor she hated 5 days ago! The rolls of the main character & her husband are a total 180 of how relationships are portrayed in the US, where if a parent stays home, its generally the mother, so I did kind of like that she threw in that twist. But then the husband just whines ALL the time and the wife is always acting like nothing is wrong. She sighs about it for a minute, then runs off to see the hot doc again. The writer puts in there that the main character WANTS to save her marriage, and then has her do the exact opposite of what she should do to make that happen. And as far as I can tell, this wonderful 12-yr old daughter is nothing but a big noose around her & her husband's necks. Every ticked off mother-in-law in the world wouldn't keep me from sending an officer over to keep an eye on my child if I knew there was a serial killer watching me and could potentially know where my family was. The dialog is not very realistic, and jilted-ex-who's-now-her-boss coming in the middle of all this other personal drama was just over the top. Its very frustrating, and I finally just started skipping all the parts where she talks to the husband or is hanging out w/the Dr, because it makes no sense.
I guess this review sounds pretty critical, but it really wasn't a bad book. There are 4 unfinished books in my Kindle right now that will probably stay that way, they're so unrealistic or poorly written. So I would say this one was a success in that it kept me reading. Would have been a great book without the overabundance of confusing personal conflicts thrown in.
The book itself was highly readable, although none of the characters were particularly likable. I also had to keep checking to make sure this was book 1 of the series. There are so many things the author assumes I already know about I could swear this was somewhere in the middle instead of the introductory book.
The plot was alright, if a little strange, but entertaining enough to earn 3 stars from me. There were a few typos but they did not detract from the book for me. The ending irritated me a bit, though. We get rid of the antagonists just to have the perspective of some out-of-the-blue fellow calling himself a unicorn? I realize it's the typical cliff-hanger lead in to book two, but it came out of no where and that just irked me.
I have no interest in the rest of the series, but the price of free makes this worth reading.
