Suspense is a newer genre for me and this thriller was a good place to start. I enjoyed the story line very much and how the author brought together all of the parts in such a way that I was intrigued yet not confused, if that makes sense. The really enjoyed Clare and Russ and the rest of the characters and all of the situations they got themselves into throughout the book. I haven't read the other books in the series but definitely plan to go back and do so. I plan to look into the other works of this author. I liked her writing style and the time span of the murder mystery and how she worked it into the feeling of community, guessing and wondering right until the end of the book. I really enjoyed it. Thanks for the opportunity.
