I’ve enjoyed a couple of books by this author so I’ve decided to give it a go. This book is number 3 of the ‘Tacoma Mounted Police’ series but there’s no need to read them in order. However, there are a few references to characters and events of the previous books that I couldn’t put in the right context.
According to the publisher, this book’s genre is intrigue & thriller / romance but it’s more of the latter. The murder investigation is in the background most of the time, like an excuse to showcase the romance. So if you are looking for a thriller, you are going to find something like an armchair detective investigation instead, a bit like an Agatha Christie book with the murderer’s self confession included.
Regarding the pace of the story, I found it sometimes too slow and descriptive and other times too fast and telling facts as an afterthought. The romance part was ok but nothing extraordinary there either.
Overall, an ok read if you like Agatha Christie with a lesbian twist. 3 stars.
