I love mysteries/thrillers and found this legal murder mystery quite interesting from the get go. The characters were likable (except for the bad person) and well developed. I had a feeling about Sarah in the beginning and was glad to eventually find out I was right. No bad language which I found refreshing. A bit of romance, some sadness, thrills and surprising action. Not too much violence. I read it before bed every night until I finished. The conclusion was not predictable. I look forward to the next book in the series to see what Taylour is up to next. Awarding it five stars for sure! Thank you to the author for the complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Wow! My heart just came down from one of the biggest adventures I’ve ever had with a book in my life. I was hit from the very beginning with a mystery in which I could not wait to delve deeper and deeper as I turned the page. Stone did not disappoint. He has crafted a mystery that will take his readers on a ride and a wild one at that.

Its not only the story that pulls you in hard and fast but the writing is done in a descriptive yet suspenseful manner. Words are crafted into sentences which are constructed in such a way that you see everything as it is happening. You know precisely what is going on.

With that said, I don’t spoil the story, but I do want to tell you that this is the author’s debut novel and an awesome read. The main character, Taylour Dixxon is very talented sleuth and I am looking forward to reading more about her and her cases to come.

I can’t wait to read more from this author.

I am a crime and mystery buff. I love "real life" thrills and action. This book was a perfect fit for my tastes. The setting was described to perfection and the characters were so well developed I felt like I really knew them. The story played out perfectly. There was the mystery of the murder, the thrill of the chase from the unknown assasin and even a little bit of romance thrown in there. I liked that this was a great in depth story and there was no unneeded foul language, and the violence didn't get out of hand. I like my horror movies bloody, but not my books. I read to relax and for enjoyment. This is what I would call a bit of a cozy mystery. It's perfect for the beach, or staying up late reading in bed. I stayed up late a few nights because I wanted to know what happened next. The conclusion of this story was little surprising, which is awesome because I don't wind up surprised very often. There are also a few questions left. I'm hoping to get to read more about Taylor Dixxon and her law practice in a small Texas town!
