GENRE: CRIME, FEMALE-LEAD
I thought this was a really interesting novel. It is a crime novel; something I don’t usually read but rather watch on television but this book did surprise me. It was well written and you can really tell that the author has worked in the industry. There is a lot of background information that I wasn’t privy too before having read the book.
The only reason I am giving this a 3-star instead of a 4-star read is the narration. Obviously this was an audiobook but I found myself getting lost at times because the two narrators who each depicted one perspective (Charlie’s and Erica’s) were two women with similar voices -but different intonations… I sometimes got lost as to WHO was narrating. Perhaps that is my ADHD but I would have preferred if the chapters were read “CHAPTER 23 - Erica”
In the fall, I always take the time to rewatch BONES. This was a murder-solving series that aired on FOX that aired between 2005-2017. It was one of my favourite shows, and that is why I always rewatch it. In between, rewatching this series as well as reading this book, I found myself in a crime solving little bubble and it all came together perfectly. If you are someone who enjoys crime mysteries, this is honestly a great fall read.
Also, it is really cool that part of the novel is actually narrated by the author! Check it out!
