* All opinions are my own.

I read most of this book in one sitting because I was so engrossed in it.  I really liked the characters.  This story is book two in the Dectective Kerri Blasco series, but Kerri Blasco was not the main character.  Mari Gill, the suspect of a murder investigation is the main character.  I really liked that Ms. Schneider wrote the story this way, it made for a more interesting read.

The reason I gave the book three stars is because the book’s title gives away what should have been a huge plot point.  I mean come on, you shouldn’t put the words “with a shocking twist” in the title.  These words allow the reader to expect the twist, which diminishes the sense of shock the author was going for.

But, other than my issue with the title I did think the book was well written.  There was no plot holes and the details were well thought out.

So please don’t let my rating stop you from reading this book.  Just go in with the knowledge that a title can tell you a lot about the subject.

Happy reading!!!




I was a bibliophile before I learned the alphabet. From an early age I have used books to relieve the pressures of reality. I was I teenager before I appreciated the learning power of books. Now, as an adult, I read books for both learning and relaxation.
