There was nice suspense, occasional sarcastic humor and no writing errors. Monroe and Lane were described well and overall the story had a good flow.
Unfortunately some parts of the story just didn't fit, for example: The issue with Monroe's brother, Colburn. What was the point of adding his affair with the blonde? And the scenario with Lucinda and Lane in the alley? So what? These two scenes added no value to the story and could have been excluded. Just a lot of extra words with no point.
In any event, it was still a good read. The ending isn't a total cliffhanger, but it does imply reading the next book and continuing the series.
One issue I have with the novel pertains to the character POVs. Whether it be a new chapter, or a new paragraph, but every time the POV changed it took reading two or three paragraphs to figure out exactly who’s POV I was reading, be it Lane, Monroe, or the killer. So frustrating at times.
In the end, “Death Notice” is definitely worth the time to read. Now onto book 2, “Death Notice.”
Monroe is clearly upset about Adam's betrayal, that is, until Detective Lane Brody comes to the paper to interview Monroe about the obit. Seems the obit wasn't wrong after all--the victim was found murdered on the date listed. Sparks are clearly flying between Monroe and Lane, but there's another problem. Lane is married, but it's complicated. When a second obit shows up with the wrong date, Detective Lane realizes that he has a serial killer case on his hands.
Ms. Dean does a great job of letting the reader inside both Monroe's and Lane's head and what they're feeling for each other. Their scenes together sizzle. I could feel their forbidden passion for one another--the writing is that good. The mystery of who the serial killer will definitely surprise you. The clues are there, but Ms. Dean is very clever with them. Fans of mystery and suspense will thoroughly enjoy this book. Highly Recommended.
Along the way, Roe finds the time to rescue her drug-addicted BFF, donate to homeless guys, and solve a serial killer mystery, all while controlling the overwhelming desire to jump the bones of the sexy cop on the case. He wants her too but, unfortunately, Detective Lane Brody happens to be married.
Death Notice has a clever plot, a great pace, and some terrific lines. I especially liked the protagonist's nickname for the hot cop: "Mr. Dark and Off-limits." She calls strippers "clothing challenged." And says things like, "That will really chap her ass." Funny!
After the satisfying ending to this great read, I still wanted more. Lucky for me, book #2 is available.
