Summary-Nikki just spent years in jail for murdering her husband. Now, out on parole, she hires PI Kinsey Milhone to find the true murderer.
My rating- C
This series was recommended by several people and so I will try the next book but I didn’t really enjoy this book. It is told in first person and the narrating character is kind of a bitch. I didn’t like her much at all.
She is really negative and judgmental about people. Her descriptions of them are often cruel. And she swears just for shock value at times.
The mystery itself was so so. It had a lot of nice twists and turns but I didn’t love how it ended up.
I also was really bummed that the love interest she had didn’t pan out and that actually it was a fairly bad call on her part. Maybe if it had happened later in a series I liked it would have been ok but in the first book it was annoying and showed only poor judgement on the narrator’s part.
Also, the narrator admittedly dislikes animals and as an animal lover that rubs me the wrong way.
