Still bearing the emotional scars from her traumatic first body guarding job in the States, Charlie Fox returns to her former home to try and work out both her personal and professional future. Instead of the peace for which she's been hoping, Charlie is immediately caught up in the aftermath of a fatal bike crash involving one of her closest friends.
What I liked: I had no idea who the "bad guy" was. When I read a thriller/mystery, that is one of my measuring sticks. I thought I knew, well, I thought I knew a lot but I was way off. I liked seeing Charlie in a different setting instead of her "regular" life. Road Kill also cements the relationship with Charlie and Sean. I wasn't sure if they were gonna stick together or not as there's so much history but this story showed how committed they were/are to each other.
What I didn't like: Motorcycles are a big part of Charlie's life and persona but not my favorite theme based book. It's all about bikers and bikes. As I'm not a big fan of motorcycles, I had a hard time getting into the life style described but it was described well.
Even it's not one of my favorites, Road Kill, is a necessary entry into the series to move it along. So, it's a story that needed to be told.
While the Kindle version is $4.49 and paper back at $14.83 seem steep, I'm totally invested in this series so the price wasn't a big draw back. However, if you're looking to save some money, try the library.
