    Forgive Me by Daniel Palmer is a 2016 Kensington publication Angie DeRose is a dedicated PI, who has devoted her life to helping find runaway and missing children When Nadine, a teenager with a troubled home life runs away, her mother hires Angie to find her But things become complicated than usual when Angie s mother dies suddenly and she discovers an old photograph her mother had hidden away The photo is of a young girl with a deformity, with May God Forgive Me written on the back in her mother s handwriting, along with a what appears to be a code of some kind The picture haunts Angie and prompts her to investigate, never imagining the secrets she would unearth or the danger she would awaken in the process Based on the synopsis, I get the impression that of the two separate threads, the story concerning Angie s mother was supposed to be the predominant story line However, I could have taken or left this part of the story, as it didn t provoke the same sense of dread that Nadine s story did, nor did it evoke an emotional response from me, other than one of incredulity It was ju...

    Decided to go with 3 stars I liked the book with this one, despite some flaws.Overall, this is a solid suspense novel The writing is very simple and bland, and characterization is lacking Formulaic, maybe but it s rare to find a book in this genre that s not However, this is a book focused on action, and there s tons of that There are at least four plots in this book, but the...

    2.5I have no clue why everyone s raving about this book.Up until about 75% through this, I thought I was going to write a glowing review for this book Honestly, I did The writing was pretty good not excellent, but good enough that it knew how to show and not tell The characters were amazing I even had quotes picked out to show how I loved the relationships, the banter, how they reacted I mean, seriously, they were great Mike was probably my favorite he was funny, but serious Bao was great Even the damn characters had great relationships between each other That is spectacularly rare to have a main character who gets along well with others AND is not fucked up So rare.Even the case was good While Nadine got on my nerves, it was just because she was a teenage girl and I ve never understood teenage girls, at least the stereotypical ones I loved how her story was told, through diary entries so we knew what happened to her in her own words rather than changing POV.Then, it all changed.A story that I hoped was going to stay in the background came up front It was all about Angie and her family Something her mom did I mean, it just was completely out of place Since this is the first book in what I assume is a series, why didn t Palmer split it up There was a great opening to find out what happened t...
