BOOK REVIEW: One Deadly Sin

Posted on July 7, 2009. Filed under: 1 |

One Deadly SinOne Deadly Sin by Annie Solomon is listed as romantic suspense. Let me give you a heads up that there is more suspense and a little less romance. But don’t let that throw you off. The romance that is in this book sizzles. The suspense gradually builds up. I had the impression I was just learning about the characters and figuring out why people are meeting untimely ends when all of a sudden I realize I am on the edge of my seat and don’t remember getting there.

The premise of this book is that Edie Swann is coming back to her hometown for revenge which has been brewing in her mind since childhood. She has her list and is leaving each name a little something to get him shaken up.

There are layers of betrayal, secrets, and surprises in this book. Why would all the names on Edie’s list need to be warned? How are they all connected? What are they hiding? Who is responsible for deaths that are looking more like murder with each passing day? Who is really one of the good guys?

I especially liked the connection of the angel at Edie’s parent’s gravesite and how it winds its way through all the action. The angels throughout this book are usually understated, mentioned almost in passing alongside the main plot and it makes the book a candidate for a re-read.

One Deadly Sin by Annie Solomon is a pot boiler of a book. It is sure to earn a handy spot on the bookshelf. Because of the big footprint that this little book makes I give it a big thumbs up and heartily recommend it.
