I really enjoyed Cards Of Sin. The intensity of the whole situation is something you would see in a movie or TV drama.
Cheyenne was a very likable character, she had a strong mind she didn’t want any part in writing a story for the killer. That is until he kills her friend.
I liked how the story flowed, from the very start there was something happening and it continued right to the end of the book. I was completely hooked hoping that they would catch the killer before he killed many more people.
Cards of Sin was a book where to be honest I didn’t think I would enjoy it, but I was pleasantly surprised and thoroughly enjoyed it and for that reason I have given it 5 stars.

Cards of Sin was quite an intense murder suspense thriller. Cheyenne the reporter has been targetted by a serial killer to write his story. If she didn’t comply to his demands he would murder someone.
The playing cards play a vital role in the book. Each card represents on a scale of 1- 14 how bad a sin was. I will not give anything more away you will have to read it yourself but it is a very very good book to read.
The story is very fast paced and began quickly which I really liked.
I did have an inkling who the killer was quite early on and I found myself saying “I knew it” when it was finally revealed.
The book was written very well and with the fast pace of everything it kept me fixed completely.
Being 178 pages it is a book that could be read in a few hours.
Hats off to the author who made this book truly believable.

I usually try to sandwich a negative between two positives, but I'm going to change that up a bit here. Here is the one thing negative that I have to say about this book: I was pretty disappointed that I figured out who the killer was and had it confirmed by the first half of the book. BUT, after reading the entire book, I was pretty happy with that because it gave the author time to let us know about why the killer was the way he was and why he was committing these horrific murders. I really liked the plot line and was extremely surprised by how the book ended. Due to the grisly details of the murders, I would not recommend this to anyone under the age of 17.
I received a free ecopy in exchange for an honest review. My opinions are my own and may differ from yours.

Ms. Dahlen pens "Cards of Sin", a good murder mystery, with strong characters that will hook you in with her writing ability. Although I would have love more of the background on the characters it was a good, fast read.
This review is based on a complimentary copy which was provided for an honest review.

I was given the opportunity to review Cards of Sin to read and review.
I have been expanding my reading genres lately because of all the great book tours available from all these wonderful writers! Cards of Sin was definitely out of my comfort zone as a murder-mystery usually wouldn't be my type of reading.
I was surprised however, by the author's sharp writing and ability to engross me in the story - even if it creeped me out a little!
I found it hard to put down and kept wanting to know what would happen next - what would be the next part of the story? Who would the psycho target next and what sort of card combination would he use? I found that part of the book very engrossing - I won't go into much detail and spoil anything, but will say that it is an awesome idea!
Dahlen's writing style puts you in the mind of the main character, Cheyenne, and allows you to feel as if you're reading your best friends diary - I actually felt her nervousness, fear and anger as the story unfolded!
I was happy to expand my reader horizons and read it!
