With huge thanks to Love Books Tours for inviting me to join this blog tour and providing a paperback copy to review.
This story is gripping from the very beginning and keeps you enticed to find out more, as the story develops. The character I adored most was Rowan, she has been welcomed into her uncles home with her daughter, it had become her home and safe haven, however with things turning for the worst, her uncle is killed and she needs to use her detective skills to find out who and why.
The journey that she takes to find out more about her uncles background and past, has many dangerous turns, asking more questions and creating more mystery – which I thoroughly enjoyed!
Rowan has had her own family problems and it is clear to see why in the story. She needs to work out who she can trust to support her, to solve this mystery. Rowan’s dedication to her detective job and her sometimes ‘gun ho’ attitude gets the results she wants, regardless of the consequences.
The book as a whole with its believable characters and plot were a joy to devour. I appreciated the writers quality and depth in the storyline, so I definitely feel that I can see many more Rowan McFarlane mysteries being born.
This is definitely one to look out for.
