Most Helpful Customer Reviews
There are characters in stories that we connect with and adore. Michelle in Red Salvia is just that kind of character. She is a detective who is not afraid to say what is on her mind. She doesn’t care what others think of her and has lost many partners because of her attitude. She isn’t beautiful (in the conventional way) and refuses to change who she is for anyone. She’s, also, good at her job and knows it. Michelle is tasked with finding a serial killer with her new partner, Thomas. Both of them have the hots for each other, but neither one will act upon those feelings. The killer just so happens to kill women who look at a lot like Michelle. She uses her “special gift” to solve the crimes and find the killer responsible for the killings. Red Salvia is full of suspense, intrigue, mystery, and kept me wanting to read more. I really liked the character of Michelle and all of her qualities. She is strong, no nonsense, independent, and not afraid to be who she is no matter what others think. If only we could all be like that! The ending did leave me a little confused, but I enjoyed this book, overall. *Copy provided for review.
I was given an advanced review copy in return for an honest review. Blunt, outspoken detective Michelle Harris, along side her partner, Thomas Griffin, are working a case where a serial killer is picking victims that look eerily similar to Michelle. Will she be able to piece together the clues before she becomes the next victim? This was a good suspense thriller. Sometimes the author branched off on a topic, chapter two for instance, that could have been condensed more efficiently into the story. Still, I understand the information was needed to better explain the characters' arcs. I liked how the story was told from differing character perspectives, and, at time, the reader was being directly addressed, which was neat. This was a different writing style for me, and found it refreshing. Lastly, I liked the song references for each chapter. It added to the unique writing. All in all, this was a real nail biter! - Sarah
