Kera, the clinic nurse who discovers that the girl's Bible group is really a sexual free-for-all, thinks they are. But confidentiality keeps her from telling the police, so she digs for the truth on her own and becomes the bomber's new target.
Soon, another girl is murdered. Can Jackson uncover the killer's shocking identity in time to stop the slaughter?
I’ll read just about anything and I love mysteries and thrillers. Ms sellers is pretty good at writing them too.
Most of the leads I find in the mysteries I read are either astoundingly brilliant or a chick magnet or a combination thereof. Detective Wade Jackson is not truly either of those. He’s not unattractive in the descriptions and he’s currently a single father with a teenage daughter. Jackson has good common sense and he’s a plodder who slowly ties things up.
I found the world building believable and the storyline very relevant in today’s world. The characters were fully developed and you were able to make a good connection with them. I did, at first, wonder how Jackson could be so clueless about his own daughter but then thought back to my teenage years and realized, my Dad was clueless too.
Kera, the lead romantic interest and a nurse at the Planned Parenthood clinic is extremely likable and a sympathetic character. She unintentionally becomes a target of “the bomber”. Speaking of the bomber, it’s not a big mystery but the circumstances aren’t all they seem. Well, it is a mystery.
As the opening of a series, The Sex Club, was an entertaining read. Not spellbinding but I kept reading and didn’t lose interest. I’m looking forward to the next in the series and will let you know how that goes.
Great price on the Kindle version at $1.99 and the price on the paperback is $8.97
