I really do like Steve, he is the guy we all know. I do have to admit that I did NOT figure out the ending!
I did however, shed a few tears at the end. I was immediately drawn into the story and finished it in only two nights. This was a great read!
What a fabulous read! The characters are rich, with many angles and clearly have human emotions and reactions. The scenic descriptions are very effective as well. Could not put it down.
Look forward to the 2nd Steve Cassidy Mystery! I am usually an avoider of all sleuth type books, but I was amazed at how it captivated my attention. This book took me through a labyrinth of twists and turns and introduced me to a begrudgingly, likeable main character, who comes to terms or not with the dark corners of his past.
I throughly enjoyed this book. It was an easy read and I was able to really get into the characters. The tiny plot twists were great and there were areas that I just laughed out loud. Could not put it down once I started reading it. The Wrong Side of Goodbye. The Girl in the Woods. A captivating story of romance, passion and mystery. Be Frank With Me. A Stranger in the House.
