I’m torn on what to rate this novella. The writing was really good. The story is suspenseful and engaging with likable characters and plenty of twists and turns. However, I REALLY do not like cliffhangers and this one was a doozy. I’m pretty sure I know who the killer is (or at least I suspect) but I don’t have a clue as to who is pulling the strings. I don’t like that I need to get the next two (?) in order to find out if I’m correct or completely wrong. Cliffhanger aside this was a great story and a nice introduction to the series that I’m definitely interested in reading. Tara Thomas is a fabulous (new-to-me) author in one of my favorite genres.
I received an advanced copy of this book for free from the author/publisher via NetGalley. This is my honest and voluntary review.
