Casey Duncan once killed a man and got away with it. Since then she’s become a talented police detective, tethered only to her job, her best friend, Diana, and the occasional evening with her sexy, no-strings-attached ex-con lover, Kurt. But then Diana's abusive ex finds her again, despite all Casey has done to help her disappear. And Casey’s own dark past begins to catch up with her. The two women need to run—and Diana’s heard of a place where they won’t be found, a town especially for people like them…
My Thoughts :
I won't spend a lot of time on this review because this just the 1st of 6 parts in the City of the Lost. For some reason this book is available as a whole novel but priced pretty high but there are the lower priced six installments on Kindle which I have chosen to read through.
This first installment sets the story. You learn all about Casey, her past and her current situation. You also get to know about Diana her best friend. A woman who has gotten herself into a bad place and wants to runaway. There is also Kurt, the lover that Casey may actually have feelings for but doesn't want to admit it.
How things will progress is something that will certainly be revealed in part two and part one has already done a great job of getting me hooked. I love this author and even though there hasn't really been a paranormal aspect revealed yet, I still can't wait to read more. The novella/short story collection may not appeal to everyone but this was a quick read and I will be reading the next part very soon.
