Just finished this book. A definite page turner with some surprising twists. I think this woman's murder club series is a good one with great female characters. ( )

GREAT SERIES ( )

It was fast and captivating as a beach read - also somewhat of a time capsule as set in San Francisco, circa 2000 ( )

A murderer is on the loose. It seems as if there is no connection between the multiple murders or the random shootings that cause destruction.

Lindsay Boxer has her work cut out on this case. She feels there must be some connection, but what is it? Even with the help of the other members of the Women’s Murder Club, it is hard to get the pieces to fit.

While dealing with this case, her father walks back into her life. The father who left her, her sister and her mother with no real explanation of why or where he was going. Why did he show up at this time and can she handle it? Will she finally get answers to all her questions? Why did her father choose this particular time to come back into her life? The last time she saw or heard from him was when he showed up at her graduation from the police academy. Proud she followed in his footsteps, but not enough to be in her life till now?

Again, this is a fast paced read. The shooter is brutal and very active. The prime suspect seems to be perfect, but yet something is a bit off. Lindsay can’t quite see it, but feels it is there.

At times, Lindsay puts herself, her job and the case in jeopardy. She becomes obsessed that she has it figured out, but then things hit very close to home and cause her to have to re-evaluate and review what she’s seen and heard. What was the one thing she saw during her investigation that points to the real killer?

Another fast and tense read. ( )

2nd Chance, the second in the Women's Murder Club series, was a bit disappointing. Although I still love the characters, their interaction with each other felt flat and superficial in this tale of a revenge killer on the loose. Even Lindsay's reunion with her father lacked emotional depth. The plot was fast-paced but predictable. Hopefully, the next installment in the series will be better. ( )

Aaron Winslow would never forget the next few minutes. He recognized the terrifying sounds the instant they cracked through the night. His body went cold all over. He couldn't believe that someone was shooting a high-powered rifle in this neighborhood.
