Almost unreadable. This book needs editing. There are incorrect capitalizations throughout (for example, "Dad" as a name is capitalized, "my dad" is not - yet the author capitalizes "my Dad" and also random objects such as "Police Department"). It's really distracting. I made it to page 21 before I gave up. Besides the editing issues, the plot took an unlikely direction right away. The suspect in several murders, having just been arrested in the past 24 hours or so, was due to be interviewed by his current girlfriend (no, she isn't a police officer even) in order to get a confession. This is ridiculous and would never happen in real life. The police would never ask a civilian to interrogate a suspect, especially a potential witness or loved one. The suspect was already in custody in the interview room with his attorney. Not believable at all. Can't recommend this book. Deleting it off my Nook, and glad I didn't pay for it.

This book did not hold my interest at all. The characters had no personality, and the storyline was weak and disjointed. The numerous grammatical as well punctuation errors were annoying, to say the least. If this author hopes to become succesful, her first priority should be to find a new proof reader and editor.

* I received a copy of the ebook in exchange for an honest review. * This was an amazing debut novel by a promising new author, and I look forward to reading more of her books especially the next book about these two sisters!  The ending of this book was great on one hand but on another it makes the reader scream out loud in frustration about how it ended.  Hurry up book 2!! This book was a real attention grabber from the very first page.  The plot twists keep you on your toes and has you guessing throughout the book and O’Brien’s writing style draws you in. It flows so seamlessly there is never a spot where the reader wants to stop for a break, the night or until the next chapter.  I found myself racing through the novel wanting to know what would happen next and wondering how it all would end. I was torn between wanting and needing to know what was going to happen next. At times I thought it was going in one direction, and it ended up going somewhere completely different, which is a great thing in a book today. So many books have become predictable but this one was anything but.  I enjoyed the banter between the characters, especially the sisters Aurina and Ryanne.  It was believable and reminded me of how sister's would talk to one another.  The men in the book were described so well that I had a clear picture of them in my mind and when the author described the cities, towns and lakes I could see myself there with the characters. The picture was painted so clearly by the author that I could envision it in my mind.  I really enjoyed the secrets that came out and how the author didn't throw a bunch of characters into the book who didn't need to be there. She was really amazing at the way they all blended into the story.  The author is Canadian and uses that as her setting and while that didn't bother me at all, some people may not enjoy the authentic spelling of some words, such as gunna (gonna), the police ranks are different than in the US and just minor details such as this.  I enjoyed the entire story as it was a true reflection of the author and the way life is in Canada, and this made it much more fun for me as a reader.  Make sure you add this fast paced mystery to your TBR list and leave plenty of time to read it as you won't want to stop once you start.  Happy Reading, or in this case Happy Mystery Solving. Enjoy ~  ***Review has been done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official. ***

This novel is simultaneously fun and suspenseful.  The plot twists keep you on your toes but O’Brien’s writing style draws you in.  I found myself racing through the novel wanting to know what would happen next and how it all would end.  I also really appreciate the Canadian content in the story.  It’s nice to see an author writing suspense about the world north of the border.  Everything combined into one quick, easy read that kept me captivated. The characters in this novel are quite unique.  They are definitely real, and down to earth yet O’Brien develops them in such a manner that you get an up close and personal look at them.  I found the dialogue in this novel to be smooth and easy to follow.  It flowed naturally, lending an essence of humanity to the characters.   As a whole, this was a brilliant debut novel from a Canadian author I hope to be seeing more of in the future.   Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
