A big bag of money + a dead girl + a man in debt = moral dilemma
This is the cornerstone of this book, Noah finds a big bag loaded with money, in the car of a dead girl, takes the money, does not report to the police and the story continues with Noah in the centre of the storm…
K. T. Finch‘s story deals with the moral dilemma of will we, won’t we, in the face of personal problems and huge debts. All the characters are coated with dark shades of black. There is selfishness, jealousy, greed, each one is manipulative in one way or the other.
The book deals with a lot of moral issues, the characters are realistic as most are in real life. The book is a thriller with questions where Noah’s perversions put me off. A bit of a slow start but had enough twists to keep me reading.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher Bookouture, and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
My rating : 3 stars
Noah Kendall loves his family, but hates his teaching job. Mortgage, bills and mouths to be fed: he’s stuck in a rut. And with more debts piling up each day, he knows that something has to change.
As he opens yet another red letter, he has to get out and clear his head, despite the heavy Alaskan snow outside. His legs ache as he runs deeper into the forest, until he notices something in the distance – a crashed car, sitting dead still. Inside, a girl sits slumped in the driver’s seat, eyes closed, mouth open, skin grey beneath the winter frost.
And then beside her he sees it: a bag of money. And lots of it. Enough to pay off his debt and start a whole new life. And it’s just sitting there, waiting for him to take it…
What would you do?

Sounds like a pretty good one and the cover is interesting. I do enjoy thrillers. Great review and glad it still worked out for you! 💙
It made me ask if I would pick up the bag of money off the dead body. Answer is…
I would be too scared to do it.
For sure! I’ve seen too many movies lol. 😉
Hahaha me too
I’m with you on that one! lol
Who knew that those things would cause a moral dilemma!? Actually… even taking the debt out of the equation, if a man (or person) stumbles on a dead girl and a bag of money, well, she doesn’t need that money anymore now DOES SHE??
This is no “lady garden” but sounds fairly interesting! ;p
Hahaha this is the dead garden. Spoken like a true DEVILESS. Money comes with its own evils. Sheesh whom am I trying to convince, evil herself. Cool, you are probably the only one who can. We inane humans can’t 😉😉😂😂
EXACTLY!!! I’m LITERALLY here to tempt you! So,… Take the money Shalini… You know you want to…. 😉😈
Hahaha…. No thank you… I have the DEVILESS with me, why do I need the money then?
That’s true! With the Devil in your side… What else do you need??
I know, right?
Intriguing! I wanna find out what happens!
Go for it… It is a good book
Ghost what are you reading
hahaha, are you asking me my current read? I just finished that sci-fi book I was talking about and it was pretty fantastic! Starting on that graphic novel tonight 🙂 You?
I am reading a book on spirituality… One of my friend has written it and wants my opinion
Wow, your friend wrote a book on spirituality?! That is awesome💝
Yp… It is pretty good..
Thank you Shalini 😊
What about just taking some of the money? And reporting the accident? 😉
Cozy babe, what about finger prints and some hidden camera somewhere…? 🤔
Hmmm… you’ve given this a lot of thought Ms. Shalini….
Oh yes… Cozy babe you are the investigator remember??
Sorry, I was momentarily distracted by the cash….
Oh yes it happens I was too. Till I realized Big Brother might be watching. Hahaha
Fair enough…. Lol
Check the spam folder for my comments, maybe I am there
All were there!! How silly! And one from Carrie too… will have to go check it out now.
Plus there were three “really helpful” comments on how my blog was:
1. Pretty but not enough info about me
2. Could do with some more spacing in the text as I don’t have enough pictures.
3. I should write more so people could get to know me better..
Really??? This is from random posters not followers. Guess they want some form of compensation for their “great” advice?! Lol
Hahaha they are the original spammers and to my horror, I was a part of them😱😱😂😂😉😉
Hahaha. Seriously. Lol. There were like 20 messages in Spam!
hahaha I told Ya
My gawd, I am surrounded by DEVILESS and DEVILETTE… All of you are trying to turn me wicked 😉
Yp all Topsy turvy

Reblogged this on Die Erste Eslarner Zeitung – Aus und über Eslarn, sowie die bayerisch-tschechische Region!.
Thank you Michael
Fantastic Review, Shalini! I’m glad you liked this one, overall!❤❤❤
Thank you so much Dani, how is life how are the kids?
You’re welcome, my friend!❤❤❤ I am doing a little better but trying to hold on for upcoming storms. How are you and how is the family?❤
Okay… Good days bad days… Trying to hold firm..
This does ask really interesting questions- great review!
Yp…. I know… Temptations galore. Thank you for your comments here
Sounds like this was good but not great huh Shalini? Perversions might put me off too. Thanks for reviewing.
It did it was a bit icky… I skipped those parts. Main character looking at the neighbor through a hole is too.. 😫
😳……😂😂 That is icky.
I think this was your first review with less description since I have been reading your reviews. Nice one though.
Yes, sometimes when I am on the go, I write short reviews. I was stuck in traffic when I wrote this… Hehehe… And nowadays most don’t have time to read long reviews so I am thinking of keeping it short and sweet.
I read your review line to line. But what you said was correct. Not everyone does that. Anyway how is group in fb doing???
I know Vijay, you have always done that, been a good support. Group is going on, I suppose. Most people don’t have time, I suppose
I see the group regularly but I have nothing post. I can neither dare to talk about those international authors. But I am ready for any help to support your group. 😉
Huhhh…. Vijay, nothing to worry about them. Just ask simple questions. Or start liking their posts. Even I am scared of them some of them got so angry with me, no idea why, when I sent invitation. But people in the group are nice. Rudeness is not allowed, they have to be kind, one of the rules of the group. Besides I am always there, so don’t worry. Join in
Nice review Shalini! I was tempted by this one until they changed the cover now it isn’t quite as appealing, sad huh? LOL
Nahhh. I was put off by the main character being a peeping tom and looking at the neighbor’s bedroom. It’s too icky
I read a review that said something like it felt it was written by a 14 yr old boy but other’s seemed to be more positive so I wasn’t sure if I wanted to read it or not and since i’m trying to “behave” I passed it by.
I am glad you did. The plot line was intriguing but the main character… Mehhh
So kept the review short
Going to give it a read!
