Interesting mix of crime and supernatural.......but slips into "fifty shades" genre.
on 14 July 2015
This was the first novel I had read by this author so didn't know what to expect. I liked the story - a good mix of detective and supernatural both of which I enjoy. The romance element was a necessary part of the plot and added nuance to the story, although I found the explicit sexual content a bit of a distraction from the main story. I wasn't convinced that this author was for me but read the second novel in the series to see how the main character Caitlyn developed. I was disappointed, as although there is some development of the main character I thought there was less story development and too many pages of explicit sex and found myself skipping the sex as I was keen to get back to the story. Overall this, and the follow up, are well written books with good storylines, but I am not convinced by the balance of content. I personally would prefer a more developed plot and characters, albeit with a touch of romance and sex, but not pages and pages of explicit sexual content, which for me is an entirely different genre.
