Review & Giveway: One Deadly Sin by Annie Solomon

Author Bio:

A native New Yorker, RITA-winning author Annie Solomon has been dreaming up stories since she was ten. After a twelve-year career in advertising, where she rose to Vice President and Head Writer at a mid-size agency, she abandoned the air conditioners, furnaces and heat pumps of her professional life for her first love—romance. An avid knitter, she now lives in Nashville with her husband and daughter.

My Review:

Edie Swan has returned to her small hometown of Redbud, dead set on revenge. When she was a child, her father committed suicide after being involved in scandal and soon after her mother had a breakdown. Her possessions consist of her motorcycle, a few pieces of clothing, and a list of names. The individuals on the list were the last people her father spoke to before killing himself. She wants to scare these men into turning themselves in, admitting their deceipt. So, she sends them small, plastic black angels. A black angel decorates her father's grave and Edie is certain the small trinkets will send a message the guilty will not misinterpret.

But then the recipients of the black angels start dying, one by one. Redbud's Sheriff Holt Drennan is certain Edie is involved somehow. When he and Edie become romantically involved, Holt is torn between protecting his town or protecting the life of the woman he has grown to love.

ONE DEADLY SIN is an amazing character-driven romantic thriller. The romantic aspect isn't overwhelming, which is one of the many reasons I enjoyed this book. While there are a few steamy moments, the suspense can hold it's own. I can typically figure out most "whodunits" but ONE DEADLY SIN kept me guessing, literally, to the very end.
