Prime Deception

Prime DeceptionPrime Deception by Carys Jones
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I got a copy of this book from the author, in exchange for an honest review.


I started off thinking it might be possibly a good murder story but quickly discovered it is a Harlequin romance. Might I add, I am NOT a Romance reader. Very far, and in-between do I actually sit down and read a romance book. I can assure you I was not a happy camper.

I was excited to read a criminal mystery full of twists and turns and a bit of suspenseful action, but that is not really what I got.

Instead, most of the plot dwelled on the feelings and thoughts of the characters, which wore thin quite soon. All you read about was how unhappy Charles Lloyd’s marriage was, how much he loved and missed the now-dead Lorna, how much guilt he felt over her death, and how life just was not worth living without her.

A little excitement shows starts when The twin sister Laurie shows up convinced Lorna would never commit suicide, which being a twin myself, I would question the same thing. But then again, were reading about how sad Laurie is and blah blah blah…. Come on.. WHEN IS THE GOOD EXCITEMENT, THRILLER going to happen?!

Once the mystery is actually solved, nothing really made sense…..

There is a good story here….. WE JUST NEED MORE THRILLER, EXCITEMENT, PAGE TURNING….

AND LESS CRYING!
