Great new myster writer,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black Diamond Death (Sloane Monroe Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I am always delighted when I come across a new writer of crime mysteries. I was hooked from the beginning of the book to the point that halfway through the first book I bought the next 2 in the series!
The premise of the book is that a skier dies on the slopes but the police think it is an accident. As readers we already know from the start that all is not what it seems but it is not until PI Sloane Monroe starts investigating on behalf of the victim's sister that the police change their opinion.
The characters are well written, especially Sloane, who could come across as unlikeable, but Cheryl Bradshaw has made her seem ballsy whilst still being feminine.
The romance angle was, whilst seeming typical in this type of story, well developed and even in that part of the story not quite what it seems.
For those of us who enjoy Janet Evanovich, Sara Paretsky or G.A. McKevett this series is one to read!
