When Quinn Sterling’s dad was murdered, the Sheriff, her uncle, screwed up the investigation. At the time she was away being an FBI agent, but he his murder bought her back to a pecan farm in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, where she now works as a private investigator. She is hired by a wealthy woman, Catherine, to find her boyfriend, who disappeared. But Quinn’s taking on this case opens a can of worms about her father’s murder, putting not only her life on the line, but those she loves who surround her.
This book sounded SO interesting when I read the synopsis, but honestly, it was a bit of a letdown. Coming off reading a private investigator book, this was another one and I was hoping that it would be better. There were too many useless descriptions, and those had such flowery language. For me, that doesn’t really fit in with a thriller. There were parts that were interesting, but throughout the first 2/3’s of the book there’d be something interesting and then there’d be a long time before there was any action. All the action came at the end. That action was very interesting and kept me reading. Unfortunately, for me, this was not a page turner, and I wasn’t obsessed with reading it as I have been some other books. I probably won’t pick up and read the second one in the series.
