I decided to give this book 4 stars. I couldn’t put it down. I was completely wrapped in the crazy. I still am not sure what to make of it. I loved it. I hated it. I kind of what to read it again.
So basically we have a messed up situation peppered with kink and mystery. The story was fun. It was different from anything I have read lately. So why four stars? Let me break it down for you…
- Unique in soooo many ways – From the setting to the premise.
- Interesting side characters – I feel like in the next book we will see a lot more of them.
- World building – I really loved the community. The rural town felt real to me. I rarely read books with a setting like this. I want more.
- Mystery – I love mysteries. This was one was seemingly predictable, but I believe that book 2 is going to blow our minds.
- The plot was unique, but I felt like it needed a little more development in some places, (but to be fair, there is supposed to be a second book, so info may have been purposely omitted.)
- I would have liked to seen a little more relationship development between the hero and heroine.
- There were some editing issues and this doesn’t normally bother me, but I just kept tripping over stuff. This is an indie book; I don’t really mark down for that though. But yeah, I saw it. It didn’t make a difference with the story.
- I loved the idea behind the mystery, but I needed it drawn out a bit. The ending is a to be continued, but I would have LOVED a cliffhanger. (But this is just my preference.)
So I had some issues, but not enough to overshadow the story. Not at all. I would recommend it. I am definitely going to read the next one.
4 stars and pair it with Kansas’s own Old Backus Barleywine Ale.
