Book Review: Distortion by Terri Blackstock

About the book: Juliet Cole's life has been dismantled by the murder of her husband. She doesn't know who---or what---to trust when everything she has believed to be true about her marriage has been a lie.

When Juliet Cole's husband of fifteen years is murdered before her eyes, she thinks it was a random shooting. Devastated and traumatized, she answers hours of questioning, then returns home to break the tragic news to her boys. But a threatening voicemail takes this from a random shooting to a planned, deliberate attack.

Juliet realizes that she and her children are in danger too, unless she meets the killers' demands. But as she and her sisters untangle the clues, her husband's dark secrets come to light. The more she learns, the more of her life is dismantled. Was her husband an innocent victim or a hardened criminal?

My Thoughts:  It took me about a chapter or two to get into this one, but it took off from there and I thoroughly enjoyed it the rest of the way through.  I have not read other books in this series but it wasn't much of a hindrance.

I enjoyed the private eye and investigative aspect of this one.  I love it when you can't tell for sure who the good guys and bad guys are, with lots of twists and turns - but not too much that it's overdone.  Blackstock strikes the right balance with this one to keep your interest high all the way through.  Might have to look up some of the other books in this series!

Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for organizing this tour and providing me with my complimentary review copy.
