    One thought on “A Crack in Everything”

    1. Poisoned Pen Press let me down. I don’t blame the author, although I suppose I could. But the author and I didn’t have a history, an established relationship, a rapport if you will, and from my perspective it was going really well. Poisoned Pen Press published good novels, and I like to purchase and read good novels, so it was what amounted to a beautiful friendship.I’d met a few of their authors, along with one of their founders and editor-in-chief Barbara Peters, and I’d even been fort [...]

    11. This was an audiobook listen. I thought I had found the equivalent to my grandmother's Janet Evanovich in a go-to series. I like the heroine in this book, even though I have to keep reminding myself this is fiction and not cringe at every lawyer no-no that takes place. It seemed like the makings of a reliable go-to series. Then I visit the author's website and scour the net for some kind of update to see if she'll be continuing the series and, in the world where everything is discoverable, there [...]

    12. I picked up A Crack in Everything in part because the main character, Susan Callisto, is a political consultant. I anticipated that would provide an interesting perspective from which to view the world. On that score I was a bit disappointed. While her job was a catalyst for the mystery, I didn't learn much about the job itself -- or the unique human perspective Susan might have.However, the story held my interest and had plenty of twists and turns that kept me guessing. I really liked that Susa [...]

    13. First effort murder mystery--could really use some polish in a lot of different areas, but the protagonist, Susan Castillo, is a unique voice for the genre--she is a political consultant/lawyer, who gets unsuspectingly dragged into a controversy where one of the players ends up dead, and his estranged wife wants her to give back the retainer he paid her--Susan gradually dawns to a lot of the intrigue that at first escaped her, and it is a reasonable first effort for the author.

    14. I enjoyed this mystery. It did seem to go all over the place as far as suspects went - nearly everyone involved in the story was a suspect at one time or another. That's probably what kept me interested though, just when I thought, "Oh, that's who killed so-and-so!", they would be cleared with evidence implicating another character. The final conclusion did surprise me though - almost to the point that it wasn't very believable. (Don't want to give anything away!!!).

    15. Susan Callisto's consulting firm business is good, but money is short. Asked t help a friend run for mayor, Susan is tempted, but suspicious. What happens next is a surprise. OK novel, but too predictable.

    16. A Crack in Everything is a really goos suspense book. I found the ending really good. What I loved about this book is that the emotions of the characters are really well done. We could easily picture the scenes and how she lives through it.

    17. I didn't love itI felt the characters were introduced too rapidly and with no real introduction or explanation. I didn't care much about most of the characters, so I wasn't very invested in the mystery. Still, I kept reading, so it wasn't all bad!

    18. Well written. Interesting characters. Preposterous premises. Ridiculous basis for taking actions. Out of balance.

    19. Loved the plot and themes - well written with unexpected twists and turns. Well worth reading!

    20. Lots of twists and turns right up until the last chapter. A fun read plus it is set in Boston, so it was great to go home in my imagination.

    21. Interesting tangle of lives, the romantic relationship was weak. Character development could be stronger in general. But still an overall enjoyable book.

    22. I did not like this book at first. Maybe I was in a cranky mood, but I didn't like the writing or the story. I did end up enjoying the book, and will put the next in the series on my to-read list.

    23. 3.5 stars. I really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed her writing style and her descriptive sentences were terrific. What's amazing is I rated it so high and I didn't ever warm to the main character!

    24. It was well paced and I like that you are still reading a well crafted story, right up til the end.I like twists and turns, and will look forward to another one from this author.
