This was a good one. I finished it yesterday and what to say… I enjoyed it.
I really liked the way that there were SO MANY LAYERS to the plot without getting confusing. I was able to follow it all the way through and I was on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next.
The characters were sweet. I liked Bailey, but she seemed slightly too naive/STUPID for the FBI that she was supposed to be. Stupid stupid. XD But I liked her. She had a good POV for the story to ride on and she had depth and character.
Marco, her sidekick (He would kick me in the side if he knew I called him that XD) was good. Although he wasn’t my favorite and I wouldn’t consider him personal boyfriend material, it’s nothing against him. Simply, he came off way too cocky in the first chapter. Way too cocky for me. Even though that did solve itself through the course of the book. Potentially he could have been exactly as cocky but had the scene been from his POV it probably would have been better for me. XD I prefer first person cocky guys.
The plotline was very interesting. It wasn’t simple but wasn’t confusing, as I mentioned before. I had a good time following all their leads. And I think the author did a good job making multiple POV of characters to cover all the bases (I feel like there were an insane amount of goose chases and possibilities and the author did an AMAZING job covering all her bases and tying all her loose ends).
I sort of don’t understand Izzy’s incident with her Sargeant and how that played in with the rest of the plotline, especially since I first thought the Sargent was one of the men that attacked Bailey, but it was never denied but kind of comes off at the end as the fact that he wasn’t after all. That had me a tad confused.
Content-wise, it was very clean, I was surprised. Considering it was a murder/suspense book, there was almost no graphic content other than general description of the victims and the method of murder, and all in all it was very clean.
Romantically, there are a couple of relationships, two or three kisses that are only semi-detailed. There is a discussion of one of the characters having been sexually assaulted, but it’s not detailed, didn’t go too far, and only a small paragraph or so talks about it.
There was no language and no magic content.
If you enjoy suspense/murder novels I’d recommend this for ages 16 and over. I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and a positive review was not required. 😀 Thanks Bethany House.
Live, laugh, and love, girls!
