SWEET BABY JESUS
I'm pretty good and figuring things out in a book when it comes to
mysteries. I had most of it down in this one, the usual stuff that you
know is going down. But that ending! That ending broke me. I didn't see
it coming and I should have seen it a mile away, there were little
tidbits of clues but I never. For the love of the holy saltine cracker,
this one messed me up a bit. Just when it gets in your head and your
imagining what happened to the child or whatever it is. . . could be a
person, an animal. I try not to think to much into that stuff, but holy
crow! I'm not even going to hint at what I'm talking about, you all can
read that for yourself. Not a peep about what I'm even talking about.
Lets talk about some other stuffies.
DI Lottie Parker has a murder on her hands. Someone gets strangled at
the church. And I thought, well that was stupid as all get out because
they just let themselves get killed. Then I find out why. It just keeps
Then another body and we find out the reason for
that. Then we have people dropping like flies, conspiracies,
development, the church, some officials, the people that have gone off
their nut. I mean it's a whole slew of crazy in the book.
took me a bit to warm up to Lottie and her partner Boyd. It was all
kinda weird in the beginning at then I got used to them and just
realized they are weird like me. There are some things that are kinda
loose for me in the book but I still loved it. It took me a little bit
there and then it got under my skin. But that ending! Okay, I will hush.
It's just sad and sadistic as all get out.
Anyhoo, I enjoyed my
little ride into mystery land and do have some of the author's other
books on one of my 4 neverending Amazon Wish Lists. Hoorah!
