What I Loved:
I loved the mixture of thriller, mystery, and just a bit of romance that this book offered. It was fast-paced and kept the story moving quickly.
How I Felt:
I really had a hard time connecting with the main character, Shelby for a good portion of the book. I was pleased to find that there was a bit more to her as the book progress, as I really struggled to keep reading at the beginning. The rest of the characters in Lost Girl were very interesting. I felt that each had their own personality and filled the book out.
The suspense in the story was great. I had ideas of who the killer was, but I was never sure, which made the book fun to read and offered the twists that I love in a thriller. The book moves along at a fast pace and is perfect for a read that is looking for a quick read.
To Read or Not To Read:
I would recommend Lost Girl for someone looking for a quick murder mystery filled with some fun twists and turns along the way!
