I am not a huge mystery fan, and the cover is less than appealing. I mean, eyes looking out from fall leaves, well it is creepy. Thankfully, I did not put it off for long. Before I finished the first chapter I knew I would like the book.
The main character, Hallie, is a private investigator that was just swindled by her now ex-husband. She is broke, humiliated, and hiding out from her family. After months of mourning her marriage, she finally contacts her aunt and moves back home. Being a mystery you can be assured that nothing is that simple. Girls have gone missing, and someone is trying to kill her Grandmas new boyfriend. Of course, Hallie is using her PI skills to help.
The writing is good. The scene and descriptions flow very well. There are a couple instances of dialogue that was too clique or did not flow quite right. It only happened a handful of times. It was enough to be noticeable, but not enough to be annoying.
The plot is well written, but not cleverly crafted. It was understandable, there were no major plot holes or unanswered questions (well I do have one), but I knew the who and the why about a fourth of the way into the book. There are enough twists and turns that it may not be the same for everyone.
Either way, the story was worth reading all the way through. It is the characters and good writing that is the strength of the book. If the ending has to be a surprise then you may be disappointed. Overall, it is a really great read that I am glad I picked up. I can see finishing the rest of the series. I am really interested in seeing what happens next.
I could see this mystery going in several different ways. Each of the suspects could have easily been the killer. That’s what made it so interesting, trying to figure out which personality could be a mask. I must say, I suspected the true killer early on, but events had me bouncing back and forth suspecting everyone. I liked the character development, but there were still unanswered questions on a couple of them. This author has created endearing characters that I look forward to reading more adventures from.
