68. One Deadly Sin by Annie Solomon...

April 17, 2009
One Deadly Sin is a book I received for a blog tour I'm participating in, next weekend. I couldn't wait to pick it up, and when I finally did, it did not disappoint.

This is the story of Edie Swann's quiet return to her hometown, twenty years after her father's death, to find out why he died. She already knows the "how" - heck, the whole town knows the "how" - but the man everyone said her father was, could not have been her father. So, someone's hiding something. The question is, what? And who's hiding it?

She hatches a plan to scare the answer out of the men who knew her father. However, they turn up dead before she's had a chance to talk to them. Who's killing them off? Why? Things take a turn for the worse when Edie herself is targeted by the killer.

This is a romance/mystery/suspense novel that's full up on all three. I'm not a big fan of the romance genre - they're usually all romance, and not much plot. But Annie Solomon's writing is so tight that you almost forget there's a romantic angle in this story. And it's only slightly a girl-meets-boy, boy-saves-girl kind of story. =)

One Deadly Sin kept me reading until I finished. Not an easy feat considering that I picked it up late last night, and therefore went to bed late. And woke up groggy. And had to go to work... Which is totally beside the point. It comes out April 28. Get it if you like a good juicy mystery with your romantic entanglements. =)

Definitely sounds like a keeper. I really like romance but they can be a drag when there doesn't seem to be an exciting plot to help the story along. This sounds great! Thanks Drey 8)

Hi Drey,
I was debating on getting this book, after reading your review I think I'll give it a shot. Have a great weekend.

Hey, Drey! Just saw your kind words about my book, ONE DEADLY SIN, and I had to stop by and thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed the book and hope the rest of your gang does, too. If anyone's interested, you can reach me at Oh--and if you stop by my website, check out the excerpts from this and all my other books. And drop in to my blog, Annie's World, and say howdy. Happy Reading everyone!

I LOVED this book! I'm doing the blog tour too, and cannot wait to read another by this author!

It's sounds like a book I might want to reserve for my summer beach reading (not that I get that much time to go to the beach), I would certainly use a book that could be read in one sitting. Recently, i think I'm having some adult ADD episodes :-)
