The book starts out with what looks like a fluke skiing accident. Only the sister of the deceased doesn’t believe it was an accident and hires Sloane to investigate. Intending only to put her client’s mind at ease, Sloane takes the case. Who knew in their little town she would uncover a murder, and now Sloane has caught the eye of the murderer. With so many suspects to look into, Sloane has a dangerous job ahead of her, all while trying to avoid becoming the next victim.
This is a great beginning to the Sloane Monroe series. Sometimes the story dragged a bit, but I enjoyed the dialogue and the characters. Again, Sloane is very likeable and intelligent. I went right into the next book, Sinnerman, which I especially liked (5 stars on that one!). As long as the storylines stay as good as this and Sloane stays true to her character as she has started out, I can see myself finishing off the rest of the series in no time at all. Great stuff!
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!
