Great series!

Jun 09, 2013

This is the third book of the Deadly Reunions series, which should be read as a set. Like the first two books in the series, the action is fast-paced and intense. New murders, or attempted murders, accumulate daily. Plot is at the forefront of the book, with just enough character development and other background to enable the story.
What I liked: There's no question that this book kept my interest from cover to cover. I appreciated the blend of wisdom and imperfection in the characters. In stressful situations, they generally kept their composure and did the smart thing, but occasionally let their emotions take over and made stupid choices which they quickly came to regret. It seems that most suspense novels have either incredibly perfect heroes or maddeningly stupid airheads as the main characters. I also enjoyed the character of Meg, a little girl who comes through with a sparkling personality and adds comic relief. I liked the careful editing, so there was no distraction from glaring factual, continuity, spelling, or grammatical errors.
What I didn't like: I didn't feel like the book transported me to any particular place. The characters were just dropped into a very bland, generic version of Columbia, South Carolina. I didn't get to learn about any fascinating new geography, culture, or subculture. I didn't gain any particular pleasure from the writing itself (though one might say that it's a great example of transparent writing that just gets out of the way of the plot).
