It’s always a bright day when you have something to read – even better when you receive a complimentary book from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. This time I got to review and offer my own honest opinions on the book, Face of Betrayal by Lis Wiehl with April Henry.
I’m a fan of thrillers so it’s nice having to start a new series by a new author. The Face of Betrayal has 3 feminine protagonists working together to solve crimes. Their present case involves the sudden disappearance of 17-year old US Senate page Katie Converse. To me, it was something similar like James Patterson’s Women’s Murder Club series but it can stand on its own. What’s nice about the book is that having 3 separate protagonists provides 3 different perspectives on the crime and how they all contribute with solving the puzzle. Each also has her own personal demons, some obvious and some hinted at, which may be future topics in the succeeding books.
It’s pretty simple how the usual suspects are presented in the book but I was kind of hoping for more serious twists and turns. It was a fast read though because the chapters are short although you have to pay some attention to the dates to get with the story better.
All in all, it was a good and fast read. It would be fun to know how the 3 friends fare in the succeeding books.
