I love Lis Wiehl books and was very excited to see that Thomas Nelson Publishing offered her newest book for free through their Booksneeze Blogger program in exchange for an honest review. 
As is typical for Wiehl, this book is a murder mystery with a female lead investigating the case. I didn't even read the teaser before requesting the book, as several of my recent favorite books have been Lis Wiehl books. I enjoyed this one almost as much as the previous books. I did find that this one seemed to repeat itself a lot at the beginning of each chapter, which got to be a bit redundant  I could understand it more if it was a movie or series, as someone could have missed a moment or episode, but with a book it's unlikely someone would skip a chapter. Despite that, I would recommend this book to friends. It has real characters that readers will care about and a storyline that will keep you coming back for more of the story. There are several minor storylines that I found myself caring about almost as much as the main story. I look forward to more books by Lis.

The book begins with the brutal shooting of Mia’s colleague and friend, Colleen. Mia is tasked with heading up the investigation as it is suspected that Colleen’s death is related to the murder of another one of Mia’s colleagues four years ago. Unlike your average book, this one shifts point of view through multiple characters to help tell a more detailed story filled with tons of surprises. This makes for an interesting twist as you start to piece together each of the views to find out if the murders are connected and who’s behind them.

    I typically finish books I start. However, after stopping and starting several times and reading nearly 100 pages, I decided to set this one aside. I enjoyed Lis Wiehl's previous fiction series (although later books shared a lot of similarities to James Patterson's Women's Murder Club series), so I was looking forward to this one.

    Unfortunately, I didn't like Mia, the main character. AT. ALL. The premise of the book is that Mia is on the phone with a friend when her friend is shot. She hands the phone to her teenage son to listen to her dying breaths and leaves her two children (the youngest of which is preschool age) alone while she drives across town to "help" her friend. Seriously? Who does that?! It just seemed super selfish and pretty much set the stage for how Mia acts throughout the rest of the book (or at least as far as I read).

    So, in this instance an unlikeable character was too much for me to get past. It's also worth mentioning that not much happened in the first third of the book. Pretty slow-moving plot. I don't plan to read the rest of this series. [DNF]

    I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson's Booksneeze program in exchange for my fair and honest review.
