review 1: Easy, light read. Nothing exceptionally memorable. If you want a light, popcorn book that doesn't leave a big impression, this one might be for you. If you're looking for depth, character development or even a strong mystery (it was pretty easy to see who did it long before the reveal) look elsewhere. As a free kindle download and the few hours of reading... I didn't hate it. Had I paid for it, I would have been upset with myself.
review 2: I wish I could write a review and give this 0 or negative stars. I downloaded it, and am happy it was free because I got what I paid for. The buzz on this book was Kinsey Milhone (by Sue Grafton) meets Stephanie Plum (by Janet Evanovich). Ummm, not so much. The mystery was fairly pedestrian, and I guess culprit by t
... morehe third chapter. The author obviously strived to be as outrageous as a Stephanie Plum novel. This just made the main character seem harder, promiscuous, and to have no morals at all. Other reviews have brought out the fact that the main character, Raven McShane, is a stripper. I didn't have a problem with her career choice, however, i did wonder at the author's lost chance of finding clues at her job. With so many men coming in and out of her life, it seemed like the perfect vehicle to further the story. Also lost was the opportunities to create a real mystery within the casino setting. Honestly, this would have been so much better if it weren't so very obvious. Dries committed the ultimate sin in a novel for me, and that is giving into stereotypes. Having one of the suspects turn out to be gay is almost a trite theme in our culture.I would not read another book in this series. I would recommend that Dries either go back to creative writing, as another reviewer said, or decide if she wants to write mysteries or other kinds of lit because this story just did not work. less
