BOOK REVIEW: Deserves To Die by Lisa Jackson




Deserves To Die (To Die #6)
by Lisa Jackson (Goodreads Author)
Paperback, 432 pages
Expected publication: July 29th 2014 by Zebra

In Grizzly Falls, Montana, Detectives Selena Alvarez and Regan Pescoli have a new commander and a new psycho who is cutting the ring finger off of ladies and dropping them into the river. Meanwhile, Anne-Marie, a newcomer to Grizzly Falls, has come with a secret of her own. She is trying to escape someone by donning a disguise and taking a job as a waitress.

When I first started this book I was a bit afraid. I had just finished reading a book where there were a plethora of characters and all the characters had the same voice. It was hard to tell one character from another. I thought, oh, no, a million characters, how will I keep them straight? I don't know how Lisa Jackson did it but I was able to easily remember who everyone was. I was easily able to tell one character's voice from another and the plethora of scenes that contained minor characters did not detract from the book, it added to its richness.

I greatly enjoyed this book. This is the first book I have read in Lisa Jackson's Alvarez and Pescoli series and it made me just want to go back and read the other five or so books to get up to speed on everyone's lives. I was a bit dismayed to see the death of Sheriff Dan because he seemed to be such a rich character. I definitely want to know more about him!

This was a fun literary ride and I look forward to reading more from this author. 4.5 Stars!

I received this book as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) from Net Galley in return for an honest review. I thank the publisher and Net Galley for letting me read this great book!
