The book is a murder mystery that centers around Boghdun “Bogie” McGruder the co-owner of a protection agency who goes home for his brothers funeral and gets caught up in the mystery of his brother’s murder, but his main job ends up being the protection of his ex girlfriend Bailey and young daughter from attempts on Bailey’s life as well as investigating the death threats she received.

As I stated above the book is a mystery murder with lots of twist and turns. The book falls into the Crime genre with a touch of romance and suspense. The story has lots of deceit, love and heartache intertwined among its well written pages.

I thoroughly enjoyed the authors writing style as she made the book an interesting read that captivated me right to the last page with its great story line. The author definitely knows how to appeal to the audience and to keep them entertained all the way. The book confused me a bit on the first few pages, but as the book progressed the confusion was quickly smoothed out which leads you to understand the reasoning behind the confusion. The characters were perfectly written for their specific roles in the book and each character bought something new and thrilling to the book. I felt the characters were full of emotions which made them feel more lifelike and realistic to me which gave me a greater love of the book and it character’s.

I loved the book and enjoyed reading each page. I was dragged into the story and struggled to put the book down, as I could not wait to see what would happen next. What I also enjoyed about the book was that you get different bits of the story from the different characters point of view so it was not all one sided and only from one person. The book was an emotional roller coaster of laughter and tears for me which made it a book I will not forget. I feel that lovers of all different genres will find this a great read. It is one of those books that as soon as you start you want to keep going to the end the, because the suspense in the story keeps you glued to the pages.

I would recommend this book as a good read and would definitely read any further books written by this author. I rate this book a 4 out of 4.

I was expecting this book could be a funny and action packed story. I like reading books that sound like watching a movie. Thank you for a great review.
