REVIEW⇢ NO BAD DEED

BY HEATHER CHAVEZ




    SYNOPSIS FROM AUTHORS WEBSITE⇣
    Now a mom, Cassie Larkin has long since outgrown the anger and recklessness of her own childhood – or so she believes until the night she witnesses a brutal attack.
    Driving home on a remote Northern California road, Cassie spots a man and woman arguing. The fight escalates. After calling 911, Cassie does the one thing the dispatcher warns her against, she gets out of the car. The ensuing violence leaves her with a few bruises and the fleeing attacker’s threat: He’ll let Cassie live if she lets his victim die.
    A veterinarian trained to heal, Cassie isn’t about to let the woman die. But while she’s examining the unconscious victim, the attacker steals her car. Now he has her name. Her address. And he knows about her children. Though they warn her to be careful, the police assure her that the perpetrator—a criminal named Carver Sweet—won’t get near her. Cassie isn’t so sure.
    The next day—Halloween—her husband disappears while trick-or-treating with their six-year-old daughter. Is Cassie’s confrontation with the road-side attacker connected to her husband’s disappearance? Her husband has been growing distant—is it possible he’s become involved with another woman? Or, worse, one of his students?
    As she desperately searches for answers, Cassie discovers that nothing is as random as it seems and that she is more than willing to fight—to go to the most terrifying extremes— to save her family.

      MY THOUGHTS⇣


      I was put into a place early on where I didn't buy what was going on.  It started when she reported what she came across on the side of the road to the police.  They just kept talking to her like she was the guilty one.  The deceptions and twists started coming one after another from there...putting me even more entranced in that place.

      The pace of this is frenetic and doesn't let up, and maybe that is why so many have rated this highly.  They didn't have time to stop and analyze all the reveals.  Honestly, the more I think about it...the more far-fetched this feels to me.  Another one of those books that everyone else loves and I'm left underwhelmed by...
