- Still Life With Murder (Nell Sweeney Mysteries, Book 1)
on May 05, 2011
A great read that drew me in from the first page. There was a refreshing depth to the characters, and especially to the dialogue. It never sounded stilted or artificial, and that made the characters seem very real.
Storytelling, plot, and layout were top-notch. For readers who notice (and yes, I'm one), a smattering of punctuation slipups and missing words were noticeable in comparison but didn't take away from the overall quality of the read.
I'll definitely be back to check out more in this series!
