But it is hard to write a good review when you don't like a book, no matter how much you like the author. To do so is dishonest and doesn't do what is intended by writing a review in the first place--to give an honest assessment of its merits and its detriments. I would not write a review at all in that case. I would just tell the author I read her book, refer to parts I did like, and congratulate her again on writing and publishing it.
Fortunately, I can write this positive review with a clear conscience because it was such an enjoyable read!
I read the first page, then the second, then the third, and I was thinking, "Really? It's this good?" It grabbed me right away and held my interest until the very last page.
First, the characters are extremely well developed and different aspects of their personalities are brilliantly revealed throughout. The plot is one that seems familiar, one that you might have read something like before, but it has its own clever and unique take on a murder and the solving of that murder.
Her first day on her new job, Sgt. Maureen O'Brien and her partner Sgt. Blake Ervansky are on their way to arrest an unsuspecting criminal when Maureen witnesses a woman shooting a man, right there, right in broad daylight. The murdered man is movie star Dev Roberts and the woman who shot him is his former lover and B-list actress, Ali Garland.Read more ›
It is very obvious that both authors are quite talented and have combined their knowledge, experiences, and skills to create a very good book that deserves to be read by all. I will also suggest it is a book that will stimulate you to look up some new words. I have even used a couple of them at my work and quite pleased when someone asks what the words mean.
Don't fail to get this book. You will not be able to put it down. It is much more entertaining that watching the lame shows on TV where they solve a murder in one hour minus 15 minutes worth of commercials.
Looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
