This is a typical mystery/thriller; a lawyer struggling to cope with the hand she was dealt, aided and abetted by a PI, decides to defend the 'little guy' who everyone thinks murdered his girlfriend brutally. Also, a quick search on Goodreads tells me, the book is the first of a series.
1) The lead and her background are interesting; I’m definitely continuing the series, if only to read more about Morgan Dane
2) The love interest is well-written; a little typical, I suppose, but yum nevertheless
3) The character development is decent
1) The story felt too run-of-the-mill. I don’t know whether it was because the book was, or because I’ve been reading this genre non-stop in the last year
2) The killer and their motivation was VERY poorly done – the reveal happens and then the mystery lasts for all of three pages. BLAH. The intensity of the motivation required much MUCH more development
3) Everything is wrapped up too neatly; you know those stories that are knotty and then, suddenly, things just happen to unravel them perfectly and VOILA, happily ever after? Yeaaaah, I don’t like those. Storylines (especially for mysteries) should end organically, right? This feels like more of an I’ve-already-written-300-pages-and-I-need-to-wrap-up climax
Pick it up: For timepass, for lazy, random reading but you still want your brain cells intact
P.S: I hate reading four pages of content in ONE book review, so I've tried to keep mine as short as I could. Tell me if you like this format? Anything else you'd like added?
