    While reading this I had a short conversation with the author, where I pointed out a big issue I had with this novel It s a double barreled investigation and for a reason I still don t understand, it was done in first POV for both characters While the author made some effort in putting dividers in place to notify the switch mostly by mentioning the character in the chapter titles , for me it did not work.When the story is told in first POV, I m inside the mind of the charcter, her thoughts While reading this I had a short conversation with the author, where I pointed out a big issue I had with this novel It s a double barreled investigation and for a reason I still don t understand, it was done in first POV for both characters While the author made some effort in putting dividers in place to notify the switch mostly by mentioning the character in the chapter titles , for me it did not work.When the story is told in first POV, I m inside the mind of the charcter, her thoughts and actions It is therefor utterly confusing at times when a new chapter begins with the second character and it takes me a few sentences before I realize who is talking To make matters worse, these switches sometimes occur mid chapter It gives me a headache The author explained that there were two distinct sides to this approach those who like it and those who hate it I m firmly on the latter side.Our two ladies both work in law enforcement and while there was never any indication of age, I m placing them both in their mid thirties Problem is, they talk like teenage girls There is an over abundance of exclamation points Sometimes we get entire conversations ending with them Are they shouting, or just excited At the same time, there is a distinct lack of comma s and quotation marks It makes for difficult reading And another thing that was puzzling near the end, the characters begin to swear and cuss, but the author somehow found it necessary to censure them Either let them say fuck or don t, but having to read it as f k is just silly.I finished it, based on the author s comments that the sequels will focusor less on one lady at a time Still, I m not really sure I ll be reading them anytime soon.For a European guy with a basic understanding in US Federal law enforcement agencies, the raid at the end was a shake my head moment for me

    Just couldn t get into this story at all apologies if it was my mood but it failed the common sense test and I couldn t buy into either of the main characters.

    I love mysteries I probably like most genres to be fair, but there is a special place on my bookshelf or kindle for thrillers and the like So although I looked forward to this, it is definitely, just, OK There are a few major flaws though It is written in first person, which I think suits such thrillers But NOT when it is used for two main characters After a while they blended together into the same person It became too much effort to decide who was who at any one time and gave up The I love mysteries I probably like most genres to be fair, but there is a special place on my bookshelf or kindle for thrillers and the like So although I looked forward to this, it is definitely, just, OK There are a few major flaws though It is written in first person, which I think suits such thrillers But NOT when it is used for two main characters After a while they blended together into the same person It became too much effort to decide who was who at any one time and gave up The plot also seemed to meander a little and failed to get to the point When it did, it was over fast or perhaps I missed things as I skimmed through some of the pages Lots of cliches too, and phraseology is sometimes rather to hackneyed One of the characters, the sherriff, gets shot at, and I m not entirely sure I liked the notion of her hiding away from trouble and being protected from trouble by the other main character law enforcement type I already have book two bought as part of a Bookbub deal but I am not rushing into that at the moment Maybe later

    This was a book I got from a BookBub link in the middle of the night because I couldn t sleep, and then read in said middle of the night Oh it s so bad This book is bad because it is a mess The grammar is bizarre, exclamation points abound, and the most off putting tendency of the writer was to put present tense exclamations in the middle of past tense plot Like this Smiling again, the woman that was fast moving from dream to nightmare in my mind took out a badge I m Mel Crane, the county S This was a book I got from a BookBub link in the middle of the night because I couldn t sleep, and then read in said middle of the night Oh it s so bad This book is bad because it is a mess The grammar is bizarre, exclamation points abound, and the most off putting tendency of the writer was to put present tense exclamations in the middle of past tense plot Like this Smiling again, the woman that was fast moving from dream to nightmare in my mind took out a badge I m Mel Crane, the county Sheriff Crap Just what I don t need I looked her up and downcarefully this time.uggggghhhhhhAnd the two supposedly grown women narrators, Mel the Sheriff and Dana the agent, both come off as emotional popcorn bags They are burning with lust for each other, then really angry, then exasperated, then stoic, then looking up with doe brown eyes wet with tears that just need to be kissed away, then emotionally distant all in the span of two ebook phone screen pages They talk like teenagers, and they are bad at their jobs, missing or ignoring obvious leads and not communicating with other government departments Like three different people get shot because of shoddy policing.I mean really I am sad that people on Goodreads seem to like this book because it features butch lesbians just doing things in life Are there that few books with butch lesbians that exist, that this is near the top of the list Underserved cultural groups still deserve much, much better than this

    The beginning of this book was appalling, it seemed to consist of a supposedly professional agent just lusting after the sheriff she had only just met It doesn t get any better when they were supposed to be working with each other, Dana just behaves like a petulant teenager Sheriff Mel is equally unprofessional, her reaction to Dana wasI m not letting a city Customs Agent tell me what to do ,The story did improve, although I felt the way their personal and professional relationship develope The beginning of this book was appalling, it seemed to consist of a supposedly professional agent just lusting after the sheriff she had only just met It doesn t get any better when they were supposed to be working with each other, Dana just behaves like a petulant teenager Sheriff Mel is equally unprofessional, her reaction to Dana wasI m not letting a city Customs Agent tell me what to do ,The story did improve, although I felt the way their personal and professional relationship developed was still a bit clunky , however, it did keep me interested right until the end of the book The end of the story highlighted how badly organised are America s law enforcement agencies I have read a few reviews that criticised the story because of the mess at the end, but actually it s quite realistic given the real life lack of cooperation between the numerous ABC agencies and local law enforcement.I wasn t sure about the rating, but overall I did enjoy the book and even though the two main characters had their issues, I am still looking forward to reading the next book

    It s okThe book was decent There were multiple small editing errors throughout, so if that is something you are bothered by you may want to pass The main reason I m giving b the story the stars is that there were multiple times I d lose who was the narrator Most of the chapters are told in first person from one of the two main characters However some of the time in the middle of a chapter the narrative would swap from one character to the other without an indication that a swap occurred.

    This was a very innocent when how characters fell for each other Though, I didn t understand the whole bad guy thing.

    One of the book clubs I belong to mentioned that this book was free a while back I went over toand found it free on Kindle Unlimited Then a couple days after that the book was really free, so I turned in my borrowed copy and got my own.Look, um, I m not crazy about mysteries or suspense thrillers, so I was hesitant to read this Turns out it wasn t too anxiety producing So I could move to my bedtime book Well, that is, until near the end of the book when I realized I was still awak One of the book clubs I belong to mentioned that this book was free a while back I went over toand found it free on Kindle Unlimited Then a couple days after that the book was really free, so I turned in my borrowed copy and got my own.Look, um, I m not crazy about mysteries or suspense thrillers, so I was hesitant to read this Turns out it wasn t too anxiety producing So I could move to my bedtime book Well, that is, until near the end of the book when I realized I was still awake reading at 4 AM.I did like the main characters I liked how the author, Anne Hagan, divided the points of view between both of them That way she could let us in both women s thoughts and actions.For most of the book, I found the writing fair Towards the end though, sentences were hard to understand and there were words that should have been other words Like the word man should have been main Maybe earlier in the book I wouldn t have noticed but here we are in the thick of trying to solve the crime and the tempo of action has sped up I often had to reread passages to understand what happened.In my opinion, using cuss words should be full out, and in this case warranted, or not used at all I felt spelling a cuss word with asterisks felt like cheating It was another thing that pulled me out of the book The other cheat was in how the book ended We re in the middle of the shake down or whatever that part of the arrest process is called and we don t get to see what happened until later Sorry, I nearly threw in a spoiler Then when it is all explained, it felt anticlimactic Then the next book has a preview which is that scene duplicated Truly a letdown I do understand why the things in that last part of the book got jumbled When I write a fast scene or erotica I find my grammar and spelling give up the ghost And my descriptions are horrid Note the above review But I hope that part and the beginning of the next book can live up to the rest of the first book.By the way, this book can be rated G What I mean is the sex scenes are kept to the minimum For me, this story didn t call for long erotic scenes Maybe in the next book or so Mostly the story kept to the mystery Relationships are building, but the main characters try to keep it professional I won t say how successful they were, but the author did a good job keeping it real.I hope I haven t been too critical I did like the book and do look forward to reading the rest of the series Like I said, I liked the story and the characters Worth the read, folks
