Many thanks to publisher Bookouture for my spot on this Blog Tour.
Quite an interesting police procedural with Mackenzie at the helm. Disappearing teens had me interested at the blurb, and the author Ruhi Choudhry’s writing kept my curiosity marching ahead with a swift pace.
Missing teens who were best friends saw Mackenzie finding the link between them. She was known Mad Mac for nothing. I liked how thorough she was in her investigation. Ably supported by Nick, it was wonderful to see the budding and sometimes hidden chemistry between them. And Mac was married. Not only did the crime get to me, her personal life too did.
The beginning was explosive to say the least; it sure gripped my eyeballs and made it pop. Never seen a cop go through this kinda past in any of the police procedural. And this year, I have read a lot. So that was saying something. The story had subplots over a great plotline, the twists kept coming left, right, and center. Mackenzie’s compelling way of investigation kept me thoroughly invested in the story.
What could I say about Mac?! She was flawed, her past seemed to have sealed many a secret inside her. Her childhood saw her avoiding confrontation in the adult life. I wanted to poke her to make her face the truth. At least, let me know the truth of her relationships.
The writing allowed me to don the Detective cap up to a certain point. I got overly involved in the story, so I had to just enjoy the book and not solve the crime. And I couldn’t guess the perp. The ending was unbelievable. It made me dance in joy and to quote my friends in the blogging world. I was pretty chuffed.
Great plotline, clues and red herrings, many twists, a flawed main character with determined to solve the mystery at any cost made this an entertaining read.Tweet
I received a ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
