This book has left me a tad conflicted. While I did enjoy most of it, I found the main character Elise quite strange/annoying from the very start. But then with the way it ended, which TOTALLY threw me, it kind of explained her weirdness. I guess a part of me knew there was something fishy about her and that's why I disliked her. I quite enjoyed the rest of the book though, I always like a good mystery/suspense story and if this book was anything it was definitely that!

This is my second book by this author. I really enjoyed seeing some of the same characters. I liked Jake and May and how they worked together. It was a good suspenseful read. I actually read the second book first and then saw this one. I look forward to reading more about Fog Point.

Well, I guess I liked the writing and the action till about 2/3 thru the book. Then I felt the author got confused. The ending was terrible: the "villian" was framed, the most interesting and sinister character was still unknown by the main characters, I wasn't sure who the main characters really were, and subplots had gotten mixed up in the main plot for no good reason.
Too bad. The first 2/3 really showed the author could build suspense and action.

This took me a while to read only because life through us into a loop when my mom got sick and came to live with us on hospice. When my mom past it took me awhile to pick it up again but when I did it was like I never put it down. I loved the ending because it makes you feel like there is more out there. It's not the kind of ending that you feel left out there hanging. I am now reading the second book in the series and am already enjoying that.

The last one-hundred pages are the best. There seemed to be a lot of distracting sub-stories...almost like the author wanted to throw the reader off. Instead they were just annoying and made the book longer than necessary.

Starts off well, with lots of twists and turns that keeps you guessing ... then about 3 chapters from the end all is revealed in such a way that it feels like an anti-climax with a dissappointing ending.

I enjoyed this book and it was a really quick read. The "heroine" was a bit needy for my taste but all in all I would recommend it. Interesting characters and nice story location.

Private detective finds himself hired by a woman who isn't telling him the whole story. But in the end this attempt at small town noir ends up a little dumb.

I love me a good mystery. I really enjoyed how the characters were not all they seemed to be. I can't wait to read the sequel.

Not a bad book, but I thought it was very predictable. I also wan't a big fan of the characters.
