Many thanks to Wendy, Gina, and Cheryl and Partners in Crime Virtual Book Tours for my spot on this Blog Tour.
The story had a deadly premise, an Angel who helped the elderly at the nursing home to hasten their deaths. Ruth, the VP of Operations at Silent Acres soon realized that the deaths were not normal. She called in Zach, her abrasive neighbor and retired detective. Together they investigated.
My first book by Catharine Riggs, I was quite enthralled by the story, having read such medical thrillers before. Where this book varied were in characters. I liked that the author took an out of the normal way to write them.
They were headstrong, blunt, didn’t like each other, shared a corrosive secret. Both came across as selfish initially till they grew on me. As the pages turned, the layers in the characters were revealed. I liked the strength in writing them.
The story was, at the roots, a murder mystery. And it didn’t disappoint with its suspense. I could guess at the Angel, but I left the thought there and read the book pure for the pleasure of it. The investigation took its turns, as they normally do.
My niggles too made its appearance. The prose could have been sharper, and ending way better.
Overall, it was fun to start the day with a murder mystery. A good breakfast read!!
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
