Deadly Devotion by Sandra Orchard

You think you can solve thrillers before they're over? You won't guess this one.

Orchard has created a twist-and-turn masterpiece. I felt like I was reading a Dan Brown novel as each chapter ends with a cliff hanger. You will feel compelled to keep reading.

When someone dies on the cusp of treating depression, Kate must unravel the seemingly unending mystery.

When I read most twisties, I find the climax less than satisfying. Typically the reveal is a letdown from the journey to finding out. But with Deadly Devotion, the "answer" fits perfectly and it sets up the rest of the series.

While the plot speeds along, Orchard does a great job at fleshing out the characters. This is an all around, solid book and great for a first in a series.

I can't wait to see what's next in Orchard's mix.
