Wishing for Grace gGood series lovely storyline with a decent mysteryvery suspenseful and it involves awesome characters that was also well written paperback I find it odd that this book launched a ten plus book series with break away novels I thought Eve Duncan was the wrong character for this first book to focus on so I can t imagine where itoes from there She s hired to do a facial reconstruction on a skull and the entire time I was thinking why didn "t they just o for the DNA first Well they went "they just o for the DNA first Well they went it second making Eve s contribution all the minimal The only way she would ve been useful is if the situation had been a lot less volatile and they d been able to o slowly and carefully I have no idea
WHY SHE WAS INVOLVED START TOshe was involved start to Really it was a waste of a character focus and pretty much nonsenseI found uin creepy and fanatical According to my mom that s the couple to ship I love when crazy men with control issues are protrayed as romantic It makes me want to vomit in a hatWe don t find out what happened to Eve s daughter and although I m curious I don t think I m oing on a 12 book saga to find out I ll wikipedia it after the last one comes out Yes I m that person Ugh I have the entire series sitting on my table thanks to my mother We ll see I Lebanon guessThe author has some major story telling vices For example she randomly dumps the information sheathered during her research in to add plausibility to the story It s boring and obviously done in a look at me look at me I m writing a crime story and I did my homework kind of way Authors please listen If you do research awesome I won t scowl when I m reading some outlandish thing you pulled out of your ass but you also don t have to stop the book so we can applaud you er your research assistant Dullsville Many of the reviews were not kind to this book One touted that it was not believable There are parts that are a stretch to be sure I think that s why they call it fiction So there must have been some Clarkesworld (Clarkesworld Anthology, good reviews somewhere for me to seek out this thriller Is mine one of them I think this was a Eve Duncan took on a job as a forensic sculptor for a very specific reason She had a littleirl named Bonnie Bonnie was killed by a serial killer who has since been executed Little Bonnie s body has never been found Therefore Eve has made it her life s mission to identify those deceased She does this by recreating their skulls preferring to work with the remains of children and to then return them to their parents so that they can have the closure that she herself never خداوند الموت got to experienceJohn Logan is a billionaire who will stop at nothing to hire Eve to identify a set of bones Eve is reluctant to work with the handsome smooth talker who won t take no for an answer It takes a very bold move from Logan s enemies enemies who know his trueoal to change Eve s mind She knows being offered a ridiculous sum of money for relatively short work means something far than Logan is willing to tell herEve s job is to restore peace to families that have been severely wounded by murder Instead after entering Logan s world she is faced with danger murder and ends up fleeing for her life When she begins to understand the depth of Logan s purpose needless to say she is extremely angered and begins to worry not only for her life but for that of her motherWhile on the one hand readers experience the depth of Eve s rief when it comes to memories of Bonnie readers are also pulled into a world of political corruption and duplicity When it comes to Bonnie Eve has vivid memories that keep prodding her forward With regard to the current situation countless lives will be affected should Eve not succeed with what she is doing for LoganThere are a lot of dynamics to Be Explored In This Book This Part explored in this book This part the story is nothing short than amazing For starters Eve and Logan are working together Then there is Eve s past and her relationship with her mother Also enter in another man Joe uinn a former navy SEAL and FBI agent and now lieutenant detective in their town of Atlanta GA uinn s and Eve s past and current relationship is explored and this opens up a whole new level of intensity in an already tightly woven fast moving bookAnother character that I enjoyed is Margaret Logan s personal assistant Her role in Logan s life and this story is pivotal and no doubt she will be a part of future stories in.
