If you love books that are filled with suspense, police procedure and romance, then this is definitely the book for you! A Dozen Deadly Roses is fast-paced and jam packed with action that will keep you keep you turning page after page. However, it doesn't stop there! The romance between Jade & Mac is filled with secrets, revelations, twists, & turns - but by the end, you know it was all worth it :)
There were several things that stood out to me while reading Kathy Bennett's debut novel. The first, it didn't feel like a first book. The dialogue & characterization were great and the story built nicely throughout. The second, the story felt very authentic and it was almost as if, in some scenes, I was along for the ride in the police car with Jade & Mac. And finally third, the bad guy completely surprised me, and I liked it. When reading a suspense book, I like the mystery to keep me guessing until the end. If I figure it out to early then I feel a little cheated.
There were really no drawbacks to the book for me. I would have liked to see more interaction between Jade & Mac outside of their work, as well as, a little more history for both Mac & Jade. These are certainly just wants from me, and they in no way detract from the book, I just crave the details ;)
Outstanding debut novel and definitely an author I will continue to read!!!
