Talk about starting out with a bang! The opening chapter of Gone Daddy Gone certainly grabs the attention of the reader and sets up the whodunit for this tale. This is my first read in this series and it is obvious that Sloane has a past, but I had no trouble following the story line. The book is well-written, the characters are interesting, and the pacing keeps the story moving quickly. We also get snippets from the bad guy that are a bit creepy and a nice addition to the story.
While it doesn't take long to figure out the direction of the tale, the details were a surprise - at least to me. I can't speak for those that are familiar with the series. Overall, this mystery pulled me in and held my interest throughout, and the characters are sufficiently interesting to have me looking up earlier books in the series.
|Oh my what a book. It's hot and steamy along with scary. I honestly cannot pick one story I liked the most. I love reading paranormal and I love the south. With this book coming from Atlanta it was kind of like going home. I was raised about 20 minutes from Atlanta. I loved that these were short stories. Some I wish had of been a bit longer a few felt like they were rushed. Some I would love to read a whole book on. I was able to read this book without staying up late. I read a story here and there over a couple of days and my house still got cleaned, things were tended to and I got my reading in.
There are 16 stories in the book. They feature all types of Paranormal from ghosts to vampires and everything in between. Great read any time of the year but great during the Halloween season.
I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.
