Disclaimer: I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Casi McLean. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
One of the things that I really loved about this novel was how the political thriller part of this was the main part of the plot. I know that the first chapter really got me thinking that it was going to go one way and then it gave me a twist that I wasn’t expecting. I’m also kind of… really creeped out at how this book really felt so lifelike? Honestly, I would not be surprised if the events in this novel really took place, or ever did. Because with the way that things are going in today’s political climate… yeah.
I was freaking obsessed with Emily and how her character was. I think it really was because of her being an investigative journalist. So already she’s looking for the clues in places that aren’t so obvious and trying to solve the mystery before it can affect others. And she still has time to get a little loving in with the detective on the case which, yeah I was kind of for and I’m hoping that it really wasn’t the product of what Emily initially thought. But either way, I liked it. I think they work really well together as a team, solving crime and playing good cop, bad cop. Maybe Emily should switch career paths? I don’t know.
I also love that this kind of became a family affair even though, yeah it wasn’t good circumstances that brought the siblings together. I also loved how close they were growing up and in the present, even thought they grew into their passions and weren’t living close to one another. I love family dynamics like that and it just made me happy to see in a novel like this.
