The suspense part was really interesting. It kept me guessing till the end. Still, the ending was a bit too fast, I wish there was some investigation or that someone (Mac or Becca and Hudson) discover the identity of the killer. However, I believe it this part is developed in the other books in the series.

My English review
Je n’avais pas entendu parler de cette série avant de la tenter mais j’étais curieuse d’en découvrir plus. J’apprécie toujours de découvrir une nouvelle série de suspens/thriller et c’était alors une bonne occasion avec ce roman. J’avoue que le résumé Français ne m’avait pas attendu à retrouver une touche de paranormal mais c’était une bonne surprise de découvrir ce joli mélange. J’étais tout de même un peu anxieuse avant de me lancer dans l’histoire. Oui par ...more

However, I didn't really feel like I'd gotten full value, either. Most of the problems with this book seem to be purely technical -- the author was far too wordy, the characters were kind of bland, and there were some parts that were just ridiculously unrealistic.
Example 1: "He had a fondness for Armani suits paid for by his wealth ...more
Paranormal stuff has to be handled very deftly to be engaging to me – otherwise it feels overdone – and this book was walking a fine line where that was concerned. I also did not care for the italicized text from the “antagonist.” Even the romance was too goody-goody for me; I wanted more struggle, especia ...more
