Not To Be Missed, New Release by Erica Spindler, The Other Girl. Highly Recommended!
The Other Girl is a riveting and fast-paced crime-thriller. I loved every page of this engrossing novel. The book came alive for me with its well-developed characters, natural dialogue, and realistic crime scenes. Every sentence moved the story along; there were no boring pages in this superbly crafted novel.
Detective Miranda Rader was a small town Louisiana girl. Although she had once been a wild and rebellious teenager, after spending six months in the court system, Miranda’s attitude changed dramatically. She didn’t want to end up like her loser father, spending more time in jail, than out. As a result, Miranda spent several years studying and perfecting her career in law enforcement. She thought that her past was dead and buried. Miranda, however, was mistaken. After investigating a local college professor’s gruesome murder, Miranda’s past sprang up from the grave in a flash. As more deaths, were discovered, fingers started to point at her; and the investigation got real personal, fast. Either someone was setting her up to take the fall, or she was losing her mind. She no longer knew who she could trust and who she couldn’t. But Miranda had worked too hard to become a respected officer, to go down without a fight. And fight, she would.
Erica Spindler is an outstanding writer. Once I started this book, everything was put on hold for the day, until I finished it. I absolutely loved it! Highly recommended.
Thank you, St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
