Alright Coming to terms with the overabundance of clothing descriptions we had once againthis book was pretty good.The story was really catching and once again the killer was difficult to figure out.This is book 2 in the series, but can totally be read as a stand alone.Collins does enough rehashing to give you the gist of the characters backgrounds.I liked it even than the first book.Thank you NetGalley and Thomas Mercer for my ARC. This is the second book in the series, I read the first right before reading this one I really enjoyed the first so was looking forward to the second one however this book felt a little flat and drawn out to me and not very thrilling It was not a total loss I I did enjoy the book just felt like it took a while to get through I would still give a third book if it ever was to come out a chance in the series I definitely see it going places. This marks the third book in my entire life that I ve posted a DNF for I always give at least the first 100 pages a try before I give up, and I did the same in this instance I couldn t have cared less about the story or the characters if I tried My eyes were glazed over from the first few pages. Sadly, I thought that I would ve loved this book because of the subject matter However, I didn t Very disappointing Ohwell Better luck next time. Krista and Keith are caught up in the deaths of aging rock and rollers after band members commit suicide after their induction into the Iowa Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Or was it really suicide Old grudges, misunderstandings and musical differences all come up in the investigation as Krista tries to find out why band members are dying Another fantastic read from Max Alla Collins and Thomas and Mercer Publishers Thanks for the opportunity to read this book for an honest review It is well worth the day it took me to zip through this story It was that engrossing for me
