    1. great mystery. it kept me guessing till the end. i read it in one sitting, basically. i wonder whether it's common nowadays for mysteries written by/centered around women to use trauma as a pivotal idea. i wonder whether it's common for mysteries written by men, too! maybe some mystery readers can tell me. as always with these things, my feelings are torn: on the one hand it pleases me to see that the language of trauma and PTSD, not to mention the events that often lead to trauma, are getting s [...]

    2. So the influence of my best friend continues as I read crime-suspense books simultaneously. I remember buying this with her because we love hunting books on sale.

    3. 10/10 goes to the plot that drove me to finish this.Full review up on retellingofwonders.wordpress.

    4. Wanted, by Kim Wozencraft was a much more exciting book. However, Wozencraft's books are unique because of her characters. The dialogue and thoughts of prison inmates (Wanted), strippers, and other non-mainstream characters are raw and gutsy. She doesn't write dainty books!

    5. This was a very easy read with just a few characters. It was suspenseful without being confusing and having to really "think" about the story line.
