agreed with the decision They d seen too many cases where a gun bought for safety ended up killing a kid or some other innocent victim That anti gun rhetoric was not only disappointing but false There are many instances where women chose to own a gun for self protection and no kid or innocent is killed This author makes it seem as though a woman is not smart or capable enough to know how to properly use a gun, and that is just not true While I finished the story, I won t be reading anythingfrom Rene Gutteridge because I will not support and author who is a gun control advocate One of my favorites of hers even though I know the twists and turns, I still enjoy rereading it.The above remains true as I reread it again, but my preferences or discernment is maybe changing, because I am a littlecritical of it than before If you re a true crime or mystery fan, you will probably find the procedural aspect of it a little amateurish, though it does get better towards the end There are some holes that you will have to overlook kind of like watching CSI on TV yeah it One of my favorites of hers even though I know the twists and turns, I still enjoy rereading it.The above remains true as I

the story you can let it lie The religious aspect of it you will either find refreshing or annoying I ve leaned towards refreshing in the past, but have encountered other authors with characters that are spiritual, even religious, without being so in your face about it The religion here is not subtle all of the characters talk about God continually, so depending on your stance, that could bother you Even for the religious folks, while it can be nice to see it portrayed, it makes the story less realistic for me.Still a good read, but not as much of a favorite as it had been previously I think her writing style and content preferences lend themselves muchto her rom com stories like Boo or My Life as a Doormat Plot Summary What happens, When Where, Central Characters, Major Conflicts return

solid suspense, but not much about this story stood out to me That the blind character wasn t really blind I suspected before it was revealed And you could see the romance coming from a mile away I did second guess who I thought the murderer was, but it was predictable The characters are about average on the characterization level not shallow but not overly deep either And they have been through a lot return return return return return return return How Good is it return An average read, good for a suspenseful break from reality The story was ok The mystery was formula I thought, at first, all the God talk was a joke Then I thought it would have an impact on the story But no it was the author using their work to preach I ll go to church if I want that, not read a mystery novel Totally turned me off and I won t read any other books by this author. Wow If ever there was a page turner, this one is it Of all the books that Rene Gutteridge has written, that I ve read thus far, this one seemed to be the best researched She did her homework and it shows The topic, of mystery and murder, written from a faith filled standpoint, is done with insight. Interesting, captivating, how no one believed him, till he was told to see the company Dr They thought he was obsessed with finding the killer of his brother He was putting pieces together that pointed to a serial killer.He goes on a requested vacation, to help find the pieces, with meeting the widow who survived an attacked but lost her husband Feeling she held the missing piece The plot flowed, as you follow his way of reasoning, will it end with finding the killer for one or for all, The book started slow, but then started picking up I had a lot of questions which wasn t answered at the end.
