My rating: 4 Stars
My opinion: OK, I have to be really honest with the reader of this review. I read the author's second book in this series, Dead Silent, which I had reviewed for the publisher through Netgalley. I simply wasn't impressed. When I requested this one and was approved, it dawned on me that this was the same author of that book and I almost sent an email back to the publisher apologizing for taking their time, reminding them of my review on the first book and that I didn't put two and two together and that I would decline to review this book.
I am so happy I didn't and that I gave this author another shot. This book was wonderful in regards to its' character development, the mystery with a nice twist that I didn't see coming and the quirkiness of the storyline! I was almost reminded of the British tv series Midsomer Murders. This book ended up flowing so well that I ended up reading it in a couple of hours and even staying up close to midnight to get it finished. I must say that I agree with some of the other reviews that I have read about this being Ms. Wells best work to date.
Now, this is def. a series I will continue with and probably even go back and read Dead Silent again.
Would I recommend? : Yes
Stand Alone or Part of a Series: Part of a series
