    Excellent read.

    If you like crime and thriller books, this is a great read. The characters were very good and the storyline was excellent. I highly recommend this book.

    Loved it!

    The characters were amusing and i enjoyed reading about their lives and quirkiness. A mystery with a comedic kick. I actually laughed out loud a few times. I normally read thrillers / action / horror but this was a nice change. For free and a pretty good read you just can't beat it! Cant wait to read the next one.

    Good read /Mystery/intrigue

    This was my first book to read on my Nook. It had the mystery, the questions the what ifs. There was even an unspoken romance you could sense yet never mentioned. The ending left me to pondure if there would be a sequel???

    N/A

    This was not my cup of tea so to speak. I usually always finish a book when I start it, but did on this book. Others might like it, but it just wan't my type of book.

    I Must Be Stupid

    I have tried to read this book twice now. Made it to page 130 this time. Still do not understand anything that is happening. Wish the author would have done a little more explaining on all the council, committee, etc crap. Going to delete.

    Boring, boring, boring!

    I made to page 78 and had to quit reading. No idea of the purpose and/or plot of this book, if it had one.

    Slow start, couldn't get into it...

    I read about 50 pages and was waiting for something to happen, but nothing did. I am a thriller/suspense fan and i was disappointed. Glad it was free...
