Desolate Shores by Daryl Wood Gerber- Release Day-Review

Desolate Shores
About the book 
A chilling murder, an elusive killer, and a family mystery that hits too close to home . . .
After finding the body of her best friend on the icy shores of Lake Tahoe, Aspen Adams refuses to stand by and watch as the local sheriff’s department begins their search for the killer. Launching her own investigation, she’s soon confronted with a growing array of secrets—both about the friend she thought she knew and about many of the people in her own life. As fragmentary clues and escalating dangers threaten to derail her, she must also cope with the disturbing behavior of her deadbeat sister and troubled teenage niece.
Determined to overcome her personal demons over past failures, Aspen is driven to unravel the conflicting evidence and a shifting range of suspects to bring the killer to justice, even as a family trauma unfolds that threatens to upend her life. And as her investigation inexorably leads her to a shocking discovery and taunts her with a solution that is just out of reach, Aspen realizes that the killer wants nothing more than to see her and her niece dead . . .

And I thought
Difficult . . . to put down.  Desolate Shores is a page turner!  
From the 1st line I was drawn in and had a hard time putting this one down!  
Congratulations to author Daryl Woods Gerber for writing such a page turning/great 1st Suspense. 
I knew would it be good.  But it wasn't it was Great.

The characters grab you and pull you into the plot.

I loved Aspen.  

Aspen is a strong and determined character.  She is honest, trust worthy and hard working.  And she ends up being a great Aunt/Mom to her niece.  She steps up to the plate when her sister literally dumps her niece into her lap. 

All the while Aspen begins to investigate her friends murder. 

I have to admit I was just a tad bit suspicious of one of the detectives.  Not the hunky good looking one! 

The plot takes some twists and turns while Aspen is looking for clues and answers.  Before it's over she's shot at while hiking, the brakes on her car are tampered with and that hunky detective makes his 'play'.

A lot of suspense and a bit of Romance.  Just what this reader loves!  

I am looking forward to the next one in this series!

I received a complimentary copy from Net Galley.
