*This was an ARC from NetGalley. Publication Date is January 7th, 2014*
I went into this one preparing to feel kind of "meh" about it, as I had never heard of the author, and it was a debut series. I was wrong.
This is a solid debut mystery, with a twist I would never have seen coming, (although after it was revealed, I remembered I had read one other book, ages ago, with a similar plot device).
I also never saw "whodunnit" coming up, so I was highly impressed. Also, I enjoyed the touch of romance. Just enough to make the reader say "awwww" but not enough to bog down the storyline. I will definitely be reading the next in the series.
