“I think this was a quick taste but I don’t think it’s necessarily enough to have hooked me into the story had I not already been wanting to read the book.”
~ Under the Covers

So I recently took the plunge and started reading Karin Slaughter and I loved how twisted her story ideas are.  I was looking forward to reading THE GOOD DAUGHTER and when I saw there was a prequel I didn’t want to miss a bit of the story, so I waited until I had read this first.

LAST BREATH wasn’t necessarily creepy or scary.  It does draw you into the story but I didn’t really connect with the main character.  Charlie has been through a lot due to her father’s actions.  She’s gone on to make a life for herself for all intents and purposes.  Now as a lawyer, she feels that connection to help the ones that seem to need it most.  Flora is such a young woman.  A teen being taken advantage by her grandparents after her parents died.  Seems as if they are just using her for her inheritance and she seeks Charlie’s help with emancipation.  But things quickly turn upside down and not everything is as it seems.

This was just a quick taste of the story and I’m not sure if it’s just a glimpse into the character of if there will be more to come from this storyline.  We do know that her childhood still holds secrets and I am interested to see those unfolding more in the full length book.

I think this was a quick taste but I don’t think it’s necessarily enough to have hooked me into the story had I not already been wanting to read the book.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
