The Boomerang Effect by Lindy Spencer

Being in the wrong place at the wrong time can end your life - or worse, postpone it indefinitely.

In Aspen Grove, Oklahoma, fifteen-year-old Katy has everything going for her, until an innocent decision to walk home from school sets the karmic wheels in motion. Katy suffers a brutal attack, leaving her comatose.

The legal system failed to convict the men responsible for this heinous crime; instead, found them not guilty.

They've gotten away with it, or so it seems. Now, several years later, bad things begin happening to them one by one.

Accident, coincidence, or payback?

Loved it. Mysteries are either hit and miss with me. Either I figure them out way to early and it ruins it, or it keeps you turning pages. This one keeps you turning pages. I love stories that have never slow down, and this one doesn’t. There are a lot of characters to keep up with at first but it doesn't deter from the story. In fact, for me at least, it kept me enthralled. Definitely worth the read. I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Excellent reading from a first time author.  I read it in one sitting.  I'm so ready for a sequel.

The Boomerang Effect by Lindy Spencer is a mind bending exploration of what can happen when Karma and vigilante justice collide.  It’s rare that people think about the ways in which their lives are interwoven with complete strangers and casual acquaintances, but Ms. Spencer brings this intricacy of everyday life and its consequences into the forefront of the reader’s mind. She is able to craft characters in such a way that the reader feels genuine emotion toward each one and is pulled completely into their world. The perspective jumps around a lot to ensure that each character’s story is told in a manner that allows the reader to understand how they connect to each other, so I will caution readers to make sure they pay attention. However, I do not feel the changes in perspective were excessive or distracting. In fact, I felt this format added to the storyline as a whole. If you’re a fan of mysteries, thrillers, or books that get into your head, you need to pick up a copy of The Boomerang Effect by Lindy Spencer. However, be warned… It may have you thinking about the connections you’ve made and the kind of Karma that may be making its way back to you…

Katy is a normal fifteen year old girl. One day she decided to walk home from school and was attacked. Katy ends up in a coma while the justice system fails her. This book had me hooked from page one. Highly emotional, the plot will take you from one twist and turn to another. Each plot twist is perfectly timed, and you will not predict where it will go next. I am a believer in karma, so this book rocked! I'm not usually a fan of multi view points but in this case I thought the use of multiple view points was very effective and added to the feel and flow of the story. This is a dark story, but one well worth reading! It has depth and excellent character and plot development, with an ending that will leave you dragging your jaw on the floor! If you love mysteries, you need to read this book! A fast paced drama that will have you coming back for more! It's hard to believe this is Lindy's debut novel!

Wow, what a roller coaster ride this book is. You get POVs of everyone. You get the lowdown and it just keeps going. What goes around comes around!  Karma is a bitch!!  Say whatever but it is never good to do bad.   Can't wait to read her next book.

Although most mystery thrillers you can predict the ending by the time you get to the middle of the book, with this one their was no way to predict what would happen next. Set in a small town, the story follows multiple characters while revealing secrets from their pasts. You will be surprised who done it. I know I was.

Wow. Just wow. I’m speechless at the moment.  With this novel, Spencer takes the realities of life, those we don’t want to face, and bring them to life in a very insightful and hard hitting manner. She tackles these topics with tack and flare, working her storytelling magic to create scenes and events that you live through with the characters. She also melds karma with reality to create a much more in depth storyline.  Spencer has created lots of characters with overlapping and intertwining stories that combine to create a captivating whole that flows like real life. These stories are intricately melded together to form a phenomenal whole. As a reader, you become very emotionally invested in this story. Spencer uses flashbacks to keep you in the loop while still keeping you intrigued in the story. These flashbacks, as well as flips to other perspectives are set aside and kept clear via formatting. They also add a great deal of mystery and depth to the story.  As a reader you get to know the main characters of this novel quite well. They are the type of people that you want to know, and help, and love. Overall, however, character development is not a major part of this story, but it works very well with the storyline. Many of the characters remain mysterious and partially developed. This minimalistic trend in character development actually works to the benefit of the story as a whole as it adds to the mystique of karmic interactions. This is not a light fluffy read, but it is brilliant none the less. It is eloquently written and very well edited. Above all, this is a novel that will impact your life and leave you thinking.  Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.
