Lucky Thirteen also has a romantic subplot, though considering I'm a hard-core smutty and emotional romance reader, that aspect of the book didn't hold my attention nearly as much as the way the author unfolded the murder mystery. For me, this made the book harder to get through than my normal read, but for those who prefer more thriller than romance, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
I wasn't sure what to expect at first. Was Ray the bad guy, or a victim himself? And what was up with him looking just like the detective? You'll have to read and find out for yourself. One of my favorite aspects of this novel was the amount of research the author put into it. From the dialogue of the police to the FBI, everything came off as plausible, if not outright believable. I also enjoyed the tidbits of history thrown in—Larkin is a teacher, and her dialogue showcases her occupation. This is one of those reads where you'll learn a thing or two. I especially liked how the author ended it, with Larkin explaining the various meanings behind the number 13.
The only thing that really bothered me was the lack of emotional connection I felt regarding the romance between the characters, but I realize that's personal preference. I prefer a steamier read served with my suspense and thriller.
Either way, Kudos to Janet Taylor-Perry for a well-written, solidly plotted story.
I can almost feel a connection with the author. From a guy's point of view, there was
enough mystery with twists and turns to keep it fresh. But not overbearing on the romance
side to make it boring.
If you are looking for a great read, Lucky 13 is a wonderful choice.
Janet, keep up the great work.
