This is definitely one of the best murder mysteries that I have read in a while. Alretha Thomas knows how to create complex characters that are multi-faceted and definitely easy to relate to. The storyline surrounding Jessica’s death is so complex and addictive that you can easily lose a day just reading the story.
Detective Rachel Storme is fierce when it comes to her job. Stacey, Jessica’s BFF learns that life isn’t always champagne and caviar. Every time I thought I had the pegged who the murderer was, I found out that I was wrong. So wrong. This is what makes this story so amazing, it keeps you guessing. It is not the average murder mystery where you can easily figure out who the murderer is and the reason behind the murder.
I commend Alretha Thomas for creating a beautifully written mystery. The plot was easy to follow. The dialogue was easy to understand and the characters showed growth. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.
I will definitely recommend this book to others. I give it 5/5 Platypires.
