This is my first experience with Carrie Parks and, of course, it is the second book of a series.
How much have I missed?
Right off the bat I realize there's history: we have a policeman casually discussing some strange things with an, I'm assuming, eccentric lady who has found a human skull.
This book felt like I was reading one of those crime procedural tv shows. (take your pick, they're all the same) Parks has some experience in this so the story moves along in a realistic way.
I'm not much of a CSI/Criminal Minds fan so I don't have much frame-of-reference to tell you as I review this book.
I thought it was smartly written, the characters were enjoyable. I'm sure Parks is a talented author. Some of the religious themes weren't too overhanded and things did pick up speed quite a bit near the end.
These books are fairly difficult to review without giving anything away.
I would recommend this book to the fans of those tv shows as you're provided a first person perspective and discovering the clues/trying to solve the case right along with the character. Can you solve it before anyone else?
