Jaymee is supposed to be a strong, female character but she can't seem to get herself out of her pitiful life. She lives in a rusting trailer, doesn't have a car, her boyfriend took off with the rent, and she wants to find, and get custody of the child she put up for adoption years before. Anyone should immediately ask "Why would you want to bring a child into the hovel that you live in .. in Mississippi and with no air conditioning and nothing but rust and weeds in which to play?" And, in fact, I think someone in the book pointed this out to her. The woman can't even take her own rent to the trailer park manager but has to have her boyfriend do it - except he dumps her and leaves with the money -, so I fail to see how she thinks she can provide for a child. She can't keep her mouth quiet - which is why her friends end up dead - and I honestly couldn't find a lot to like, or at least respect, about the character. There's no great setting descriptions that can make up for the superficial characters, and my guess is the author doesn't live in the South because Magnolias and Crepe Myrtles bloom at completely different times (i forgive stuff like this if the story itself is good). So, not a lot to recommend in this book for me.
I tried to finish it. I really did. And I thought maybe I was close to the end. But when I checked and saw that I was only at 54%, I knew I couldn't slog my way through any more of it and will never know who the Tin God is. As I said in the beginning, this may be the kind of story that fairly young girls may enjoy, I don't know, but anyone who has read more sophisticated and mature mysteries - and they don't have to be Deaver or Sandford quality - will find this lacking.
Within the first few pages of this book the author describes a freshly butchered animal having a putrid smell and being rotten. Well tell that to a butcher, or even a hunter. This is a ridiculous assumption and a shamefully ignorant "fact". From there the text is ripe with little inaccuracies that a country person, or a reasonably well educated person must roll their eyes at. Do a little homework next time.
It distracted from the story and ruined the book. He played her as a defenceless victim who had no control over her own life.
The story is loose and all over the place with so many holes in the plot I can't even bother to finish it. My feeling is that even if Jaymee gets justice, she'll just go on to find something else to whine about next. And what is it about this idea an adopted child can be reclaimed years after the adoption?

I don't want to give the story away so won't say too much about the plot. It was fast paced and well thought out, an intriguing mystery with a thrilling end.
Characters were believable and dialogue flowed well.
The two things the author excels at, is rich descriptions of settings and actions, using all 5 senses and the building of suspense. Towards the end, a character is kidnapped during a storm. It was one of the most impressive chapters I've read recently.
Loved the story. Loved the style of writing. Intend reading the rest of the series.
Jaymee has been abused by her father and his peers all her life and has learnt to shield herself and hide her emotions from everyone, no stranger to tragedy she has a very small circle of friends and an even smaller circle of people she trusts, can she open up and learn to trust Nick? He is the only person who may be able to help her before it is too late, but to do so Jay has to trust him not only with her heart but all her deepest, darkest secrets.
Nick thrives on puzzles and since his wife's death has buried himself in work, shutting the whole world out. Jaymee falls into his life and knocks him to his knees, can he become the man he needs to be or is he too set in his ways?
This book kept me gripped from the first page to the last and i had to follow it up with the next two in the series, i will definitely be looking for more by this author.

There was a lot of padding in this book - repeating details of Jaymee's unhappy childhood,
finally naming her baby's father, re-hashing the details of the murders and who they thought
were the killer(s) and the reason for the killings. There was too much "romantic feeling"
between 2 of the characters and too much crying! Jaymee cried, sobbed, tears trickled down
her face, tears came to her eyes, etc. etc. and in the end I found it a bit annoying.
It was an o.k. read, and I didn't guess the killer, but I wouldn't rush to read another in the series.
I thoroughly enjoyed this, and would have read it within a few hours if other tasks had not called. I did manage it within a day however and look forward to reading more from this author.
