Deadeye~A Review

Deadeye

When I first read the blurb for Deadeye by Meredith Doench, I was intrigued. It sounded really interesting. Then I realized it was the third book in a series. I knew I would not have enough time to get the first two novels and read them before I needed to review this book, so I initially passed it by. The problem was, the blurb kept calling to me, so I finally gave in and asked for the book. I hope all the publishers and authors out there see how important blurbs and book covers can be for sales.

I’m glad I got the novel. I really enjoyed the story. It is a straightforward murder mystery by characters who are obviously well-developed from the past books. While I know I probably missed out a little by not reading books one and two first, I can tell you that it did not detract from my enjoyment of the tale. Whenever I really needed info from the other novels, the author was good enough to let the main character give the information though her thoughts. The murder mystery itself is well-written with a bit of a surprise ending. This is a romance-light story. Hansen and Bennett are already an established couple, though like all couples, they do have some rough moments.

This is a good solid murder mystery that I’m very glad I read. I do wish that I’d had the time to read all three in order though. I believe that I would have enjoyed this book even more if I had. Therefore, I’m going to encourage you to do as I say and not as I did. If you love great mystery books, get all three novels in this series and read them in order. I think you will be glad you did.

I received this as an ARC from NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.
