For some reason, I was expecting this to be more of a light-hearted farce of a mystery (maybe the almost comical cover art), but it surprised me. While the early chapters had a few laugh-out-loud scenes, especially between Jude and Mercy, it had a much deeper, more serious plot that I really enjoyed.

Quick paced read. Likable characters. Will definitely read the next in the series.

Different. Good. Interesting info on FLDS and barricaded gun nuts. The sex was brief and blunt. No relationship. It would be neat to see Jude and Chastity get together. Worth the read, but be prepared for some intense scenes.

Rose Beecham's research on a fundalmentalist sect was awesome. Her characters were interesting, and I would love to explore their relationships more.
