Sorry it is over as I feel their is a lot more meat on the bone with strong characters like Lena, Nick, Frank, Sara & even Hank. What about Angela, surely there must be a tale featuring Lena's mother!
Have to admit I'm glad Sara & Jeffrey 's saga has ended, never seemed to go far, but good exit.
Don't think with a strong storyline there has to be a romantic tale running parallel.
It's an interesting read, but as we read about the "underbelly of redneck America," I found it a really depressing read. I know that America isn't the land of wine and honey, but the grinding rural poverty described here isn't fun to read about (and something not often described in books).
If there was one draw back of the book, I'd say it was down to me. This isn't the first book in the series, and it shows. The sherriff's wife (the coroner) is dealing with issues that arrose in the previous book, so I'm not sure that this book is the best place to start in the series.
One other thing, this is the same book as "Beyond Reach," so don't buy both.
Drugs, murder and corruption as well as loyalty and love provide the pivots this story races around. Brilliant plot excellently written with our beloved characters.
This was no exception but I would have liked it to be less about Lena as she exasperates ME far more than she does Jeffrey and Sara!!
The plot was a good one and the way the chapters alternated between Lena and the investigation worked well. Unusually, I felt a little unsettled, sad even, all through this book and wasn't sure why but the ending was such a shock that I think Karin intended this book to have a different feel, and that how she felt about the story line herself came out in the writing.
It's hard to be honest without giving away the last few pages so I urge you to judge for yourselves and read Karin's explanation afterwards. For those who are new to Karin's Grant series, you really need to read them in order, starting with Blindsighted.
