I read another book about a former investigative reporter just a few days before getting to this one. I usually do not compare books but considering both women have agendas for furthering their career, I had to draw one!
Shelby was not a nice person, whenever I started to feel for her character, she goes and does something completely random. Everything happened too fast for my liking and I did not have enough time to process my emotions in relation to those occurrences. All of this sounds like I did not enjoy the book and that would be about right. I had high hopes after the first chapter but none of the points mentioned was ever substantiated with fact, at least that’s how it felt to me. It had a great premise but did not maintain that feel throughout. It is a quick read and for ardent fans of the Cozy Mystery genre, it might actually work out as a decent read.
The narrative focuses on Shelby and her thoughts and her need to do well on her own without the use of her parent’s considerable wealth. She draws parallels between the victims and herself in order to help her find the culprit
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers but as you can see, the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
