You hear a lot about what a great suspense writer Dee Henderson is, and after reading the prequel to the O'Malley series, which was well written, I was ready to start a suspense novel from her.
The first portion droned on and on about antique coins, how to date them, sell them, and all about them. At first learning about the coins was interesting but after a while it really was quite tedious. Throughout the story I was constantly waiting for that bombshell of mystery, suspense and action, but sadly it never came. The story plot held real promise, but it was not executed properly. The rest of the story was showing how Charlotte closed one chapter of her life to begin a new one. I never really bonded well with Charlotte, leaving little room for sympathy from my part. Though the writing in itself was great, the dialogue very natural, and the details well researched, the story seemed lacking.
I received this book for free, from Bethany House Publishers, in exchange for this independent and unbiased review.
