Reading Between the Crimes (Jane Doe Book Club Mystery #2) by Kate Young


I read the first book of this series and was curious about a couple of aspects of story arcs that were hinted about in the book.
In the first book, we were introduced to the lead protagonist, a woman trying to make a life for herself against all her mother’s efforts to make her a more genteel woman. She works in her uncle’s PI agency and is also absorbed in helping her now-boyfriend solve more ‘Jane Doe’ cases. The latter part does not show up in this instalment since she has a lot more to worry herself about.
The core plot at the centre of the story is a little deeper and darker than I imagined and expected it to be. It is not an issue per se, but the tone of the rest of the book and the characters themselves talk in such a way that it was unexpected. I liked the unfolding of the events and the twists that were incorporated within the narrative.
The writing continues to be similar to the previous one, and the interaction between characters makes this work. I am not sure I will be continuing with the series, though, since I am not awed by the future possibilities of what these characters will experience.
I would recommend it to followers of the genre since it does contain something different.
I received an ARC thanks to Netgalley and the publishers but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
