SERIES / STANDALONE: What Doesn't Kill You, #7
HOW I GOT THIS BOOK: Review copy as a part of TBC book tours in exchange of an honest review. Thank you guys :)
Being the 7th book in the series I wondered how this book could be read as a standalone when TBC mailed me about the book. However, the book spoke for itself and I managed to happily finish off the book.
The book starts off with Emily, our protagonist who is a paralegal hanging out in a bar, celebrating the victory of her latest case and client. Just when things seemed fine, a man is murdered and her client is again held responsible for it. Thus follows the tale of Emily’s battle – both professional and personal in solving the case and setting her own life straight.
The first few pages were totally confusing for someone who hasn’t read the previous books. However, that quickly changed as the story progressed. The writer beautifully introduced all characters one by one and also gave them various shades. The introduction was balanced enough not to bore the readers who have read the previous book and at the same time interesting enough for those aren’t following the series. The writing was good and humorous. The plot is paced perfectly with enough twists and turns. Given that the story contained multiple threads of plots, each contributed by various characters, I wondered how the writer was going to tie it all together and give that perfect closure. Undoubtedly, she has gone a good job of it save the final rush. Felt as though the writer was in one great hurry to finish off the book. As a result the climax turned to out to be simply hilarious.
MY SAY: Right mix of a Mystery and Romance
