Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Dead, Undead, or Somewhere in Between (Rhiannon's Law, #1)

Dead, Undead, or Somewhere in Between - J.A. Saare

I liked the book quite a bit - it held my attention until I was able to finish it. I won't claim it has any really original angle to it, but it does what it does well. I genuinely like Disco/Gabriel, and Paine. Rhiannon was ok - I rather wish the author hadn't taken the clichéd route in terms of her past. Her past is the worst kind of horrid, but keeping her a naive virgin?? When there's nothing else a bit naive about her? Seemed a very very forced plot device to me.  

 

I liked the plot although the motivation behind the crimes wasn't explored at all - I felt like the villain could have been hinting at his capabilities/motivation a bit throughout the story, but instead everything was just explained at the end. Oh well. It's absence didn't make the story less enjoyable, but it's presence could have made it more so.

 

I have to admit, I'll not read the second one, as futuristic/dystopian settings are less than interesting to me.
